The Wynwood Love Is Real

We’re coming up on about a year since the Pandemic began, and not sure about you, but (safely) getting out of the house on occasion is much needed at this point.  Lucky for us, the Wynwood Walls and many new and old Wynwwod Favorites from restaurants to retail are finally reopened and accepting masked-up visitors at a reduced occupancy.  So, put your pjs away for a day and show Miami’s most colorful neighborhood some local love.


Wynwood Walls

Hard to believe this must-see, Wynwood stop is almost 12 years old and still drawing thousands of locals and visitors each year.  This outdoor, local art gallery will continue to feature Miami-based and International Artist’s most coveted work with slightly different programming than the jam-packed selfie soiree we’re used to.  Visitors will need to reserve tickets ahead of time and capacity will be limited.  Don’t worry though, these tickets are still less expensive than a cocktail from The Miami Mojito Company across the street at $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and military, with 12 and under free.  The great parts about this new setup are: more money back to the artists, more space to breathe (masked-up of course), and less time in line for that coveted photoshoot with your favorite mural.


Candle Land

Curated experiences are the new spontaneity and we are here for it.  Logging more at-home hours has had us making sure our spaces look, feel, and (hopefully) smell amazing.  Thanks to new gems like Candle Land, this is all possible.  Wynwood’s new, do-it-yourself candle making lab allows visitors to choose their own candle vessel, custom fragrances, and leave with their masterpieces in about an hour’s time.  Vitamin Sea, Clementine Mellon, and Sacred Sage scented homemade candles...sign us up!

  

Unknwn

Casual luxury street and sportswear anyone?  Coming up on 10 years since their first store opened in Aventura Mall, this newer, hipper, Wynwood location is sure to land some 3-pointers.  From sneakers, sweats, and graphic tees, to jewelry and fine footwear, this stylish spot for trendsetting sports lovers is your new fashion court.  Plus, Lebron and the crew behind UNKNWN have made it their mission to partner with a variety of non-profit organizations in effort to support, strengthen, and educate our community.


Walt Grace Vintage

Musicians and collectable car lovers can unite under one roof of vintage awesomeness here in Wynwood.  Because, while there’s no shortage of expensive cars cruising around Miami, there’s something cool about seeing a classic, vintage Porsche or Austin-Healey up close and personal during your Wynwood stroll.  Music junkies won't be disappointed with the vast collections of guitars, amps, ukuleles and accessories, sure to bring some extra flair to your work from home jam sessions.


Frangipani

Refreshing your wardrobe (and living spaces) is never a bad call, whether you’re getting out and about more, or staying snazzy at home.  Swing by Frangipani; located in the heart of Wynwood and the perfect spot for those with elevated taste and unique style. Shop everything from women’s must-have Spiritual Gangster activewear, Daughters of Triton PJ Sets, and men’s Mavrans tie dye sets, to gifts like The Wynwood Coloring Book, homesick candles, and selfcare products from habitat botanicals.  


Freehold

While we were all quarantined, this beloved NYC concept made it’s Wynwood debut.  With 3 bars, a huge courtyard, stage, an event and private dining space, a streetside cafe to get work done during the day and 1970s NYC inspired pizza shop, Freehold is worth the pause in your busy Wynwood afternoon.  Enjoy trendy twists on classic cocktails and all the best vibes whether you swing by for a quick bite or gather with a few friends for an evening happy hour in the city that now closes at Midnight.


We hope to see you around Wynwood soon!  Let’s stay safe, support local and show our favorite painted neighborhood some love.
