Design District

The Design District lives up to its name as Miami’s epicenter of stylish décor, chic dining, and couture shopping.

Come for the design and stay for the style in Miami's hippest zipcode, The Design District. Its renovated warehouses display more than cutting-edge furniture and foreign sculpture. They also boast the most exclusive labels in brand-name fashion. Dine at any of a dozen cafés to eavesdrop as interior designers hobnob with clients over haute bánh mí or short-rib flatbreads while critiquing the chic of Mid-Century Modern versus Art Nouveau.
