Street Art and Graffiti at Wynwood Walls
Whether you’re an art aficionado or just appreciate a great people-watching crowd, Wynwood Art Walk is definitely a MUST in Miami. Held every second Saturday from 7-11pm in Wynwood (an artsy spot nestled between Downtown Miami and the Design District), Art Walk is essentially a smorgasbord of art, food, music and mingling. If you haven’t yet checked it out, be sure to catch the next one this Saturday [tomorrow], April 14th.
Outdoors dining at Wynwood Kitchen and Bar
These days, there’s so much to take in and see at Art Walk with over 60 art galleries, art complexes and collections in Wynwood [check out the Miami New Times' guide to 8 "unmissible" shows this Saturday here]. But one thing you cannot miss is The Wynwood Walls - an open-air “art park” featuring incredible murals of street art and graffiti [see top photo for a glimpse]. Take a stroll around the park, stop by the outdoor bar for a drink, groove with local DJs, and check out the black-light bus that’s like a time warp to the 70′s.
Artwork inside Wynwood Kitchen and Bar
While you’re feeding your soul with art, why not feed your stomach? Wynwood Kitchen and Bar is a great spot located right at the Wynwood Walls. Or, if you prefer to eat and walk, hit up the food trucks for an incredible array of cuisine, from tacos to falafel to burgers and grilled cheese. Check out the full food truck lineup for this Art Walk here.

Although Art Walk technically ends at 11pm, the party definitely doesn’t stop [this is Miami, after all]. If you’re looking for some “after hours” fun, check out Wood Tavern for a chill bar experience, Bardot for a party atmosphere, or Cafeina for a lounge ambiance.
The main area of the Wynwood Art Walk is between 20 St & 36 St and from NW 2nd Ave to NE 2nd Ave. – if you plan on driving, get there early for best parking.
Have a great weekend!
