I love this shoe store, its one of my favorites for when I need something nice on my feet, or when I have run my current pair to the ground. They are more streetwear focused than fitness, but they often carry running/training shoes too. I can’t even believe I am sharing this place with you, because now I have to worry about if my size is going to be available. LOL. The staff is super helpful when you need them to be. All the brands are there. They carry accessories, clothing, and shoe cleaning kits too.

Supply & Advice is a specialty menswear shop that handpicks items that represent Americana in a very classic, rugged, and timeless way. The store itself reminds you of a military base that ended up being roommates with an ivy league camp. The staff here are nice. The items here are made with quality, and durability, in mind and will last a lifetime. If you are a man, or have to shop for a man soon, pay this place a visit.

It’s an outdoor plaza of sorts. Full of stores, restaurants, virtual reality booths, kiosk with handmade goods, exotic animal photo booths, etc. It seems very touristy, and it is, but also locals go there. I mean, not all of the locals live downtown, so it’s a great place to go. Bayside is near the American Airlines Arena, home of the Miami Heat, so it’s a definite go-to for a pre-game. Go to Bubba Gumps Shrimp, or Hooters. Don’t be alarmed though, those are not your only options for eating or drinking at Bayside. You can have a drink over looking the water if you go all the way to the back.401 Biscayne Blvd

Honestly, this place is small, but it makes up for it with outdoor seating. It’s a great place all around. Locals gravitate to this place to hang out, and it get weird to say the least. I love it. I always have a great time. They’ve got a good beer, and craft cocktail menu. The Corner, it get its name because it is literally on the corner, is almost like a spot for the underground who’s who of Miami. They have various events from live music to karaoke, hosted by local celebrities from time to time, so you would want to check out there Instagram page to stay up to date. @thecornermiami

I used to go to this place when it was Pub One. I was devastated when I found out that it closed. Now sits this retro themed dive bar called Mama Tried. A group of collectives in Miami, came together to create a concept different from most. Their main focus is to have a space where people can come, have a drink, and have some fun. You should totally check them out for Happy Hour. I mean whoever left a Happy Hour unhappy. If they did, maybe their expectations were too high, who knows. It’s not happening here though, so no worries.
