City Guide: Miami, More Magic than Ever

What's not to like about Miami? This city, this whole region embodies fun and relaxation. Miami is special for a lot of reasons, its incredible beaches, beautiful people, plus that mix of Latin/ Caribbean culture.

No other city compares because no other city has this much character or this much rhythm. Brendan and I call Miami home, and it has been a wild ride in the Magic City to say the least. If you've ever been to Miami you've probably had one of those 5am or 6am kind of nights. We highly encourage keeping with that experience, but we also recommend getting to sleep before 1am one of your nights here and seeing Miami during the day. Between the amazing beaches and the scattered art districts, this city is booming for many reasons. If you want a few of the brothers' recommendations check below!

IN THE EPISODE


Food

Le Marché Café - A great way to start one of your days in Miami, this little cafe offers delicious coffee and croissants and is conveniently situated in Brickell, a walkable area well worth exploring after breakfast.

Brother’s Recommendation: Traditional bacon egg croissant sandwich

1700 SW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33129


27 Restaurant and Bar - With quality ingredients and a regularly changing menu, this restaurant offers global inspired dishes, attached to the Freehand Hostel in Miami Beach.

Brother’s Recommendation: The menu is seasonal, but they always have an amazing catch of the day, fresh crudo, and large shareable dishes.

2727 Indian Creek Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33140


La Camaronera Seafood Joint and Fish Market - A cash only, Cuban inspired fish restaurant located in Little Havana. Just a short distance from Miami’s famous Calle Ocho.

Brother’s Recommendation: Shrimp Sandwich or Pan con Minuta

1952 W Flagler St, Miami, FL 33135


Pollos y Jarras - Outstanding Peruvian spot, situated in downtown Miami. Peruvian cuisine may not be the most prevalent in the US but one meal here will show you why it’s considered one of the world’s most exciting and thriving food cultures.

Brother’s Recommendation: Family style meals are the way to go here. We recommend ordering the fish ceviche in Pucusana 105, Causa Con Relleno De Pollo, Anticucho Tradicional, and ½ Pollo A La Brasa. Trust us, you won’t be disappointed!

115 NE 3rd Ave, Miami, FL 33132


1-800 Lucky - Features seven food stands under one roof, each one offering a different style of Asian cuisine. Quality late-night food spot and a popular outdoor bar with a DJ, making it a great place to both start and end your night in Wynwood, one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods.

Brother’s Recommendation: Sui Mai Shrimp Dumplings

143 NW 23rd St, Miami, FL 33127




Drinks and Nightlife

Broken Shaker - Once a pop-up cocktail bar this place became an immediate success. Great for everything from first dates to group hangouts.

Brother's Recommendation: Almost any cocktail is amazing, go with what you're craving! The revolving menu captures the seasons of Miami, tropical and sunny. Look for the old fashion or something with fruit forward in a colorful cup.

2727 Indian Creek Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33140




Wynwood Brewing Company - Part of Miami’s booming craft beer scene, Wynwood Brewing has the distinction of being the first craft brewery in the city. The brewery is situated close to the heart of Wynwood, making it easy to hit during a day in Miami’s art district.

Brother’s Recommendation: La Rubia Blonde Ale

565 NW 24th St, Miami, FL 33127


Veza Sur - This latin-inspired brewery and tasting room offers a wide variety of beers and beer cocktails. Veza Sur is thriving in Wynwood and is well worth a visit no matter what kind of beer you enjoy.

Brother’s Recommendation: Spanglish Latin Lager, La Yuma Dark Lager, and the No Reservations IPA.

55 NW 25th St, Miami, FL 33127


J. Wakefield - J. Wakefield’s wide array of quality beers and frequent food truck partnerships makes it a popular place to hit during a day out in Wynwood.

Brother’s Recommendation: El Jefe Hefeweizen and the Hops for Teacher IPA.

120 NW 24th St, Miami, FL 33127


Wynwood Marketplace - Part patio bar, part event venue. Try to catch it on a night with a big party for a holiday, South American nation's independence day, or major soccer tournaments.

2250 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127


Wood Tavern - I honestly don't even know how to describe this place as it seems to have creeped into all of the surrounding storefronts on the block. Part dive, part dance hall, part burger stand? That's new but I love it. Mojitos too, fine let's do it. Meet the best Miami has to offer at this spot.

Brother's Recommendation: Whatever floats your boat or gets you high. Just don't stand on the bleachers, don't be those people.

2531 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127


Culture

Brickell Run Club - This is the world's largest run club. Every Tuesday catch this group congregating on 13th and Brickell Ave to go on a 3.5-4 mile jog through the streets of Downtown Miami. This is an institution in the city, watch out for a full episode on this event coming soon. Newcomers and tourists are always welcomed.


Outdoors and Excursions

South Beach - Needs no introduction. Come here, be the life of the party, bring your coolers, your floaties, and your volleyballs and get ready to live life to the fullest.


North Beach - Had one too many the night before? Then forego the South Beach scene for this Northern district. Still a part of Miami beach but with way less crowds. Hit the Publix on 69th and Collins Ave and grab supplies.

Bill Baggs State Park - Head to the end of Key Biscayne for this hideaway beach. Isolated and lush, with a cool lighthouse to explore.

These are the spots that came up during the episode but obviously there are many more, feel free to drop us an email or a DM to tell us your favorite place in this destination.
