Art Basel Miami Beach is just one of the 20 pop-up art festivals during the first week in December. Within the 20 festivals, there are endless events, dinners, and every social function imaginable that attracts some of the most stylish and artistic creatives.
Last year alone, Miami Art Week – Art Basel | Art Miami welcomed over 75,000 attendees, and we can expect even more this year. Agency-BE is located between the heart of the Miami Design District and Wynwood. Check out some of Agency BE’s local knowledge if you are coming down to Art Basel this year.
When you see “Creative Chic” on an event dress code and think, “ummmm??” Head to Beach Boutique. Basically the ‘boutique’ is a 600 sq ft. curated Basel closet tucked away on Sunset Harbor. Save yourself an Uber ride to Aventura -Jessi Kwiat, Corporate Business Development Director
Pull up to the tents in your Beach Cruiser. Traffic is no joke, especially south of 5th and Wynwood. Citi-bikes are available, but Fritz’s Skate, Bike & Surf on Washington has a great variety to rent.
Finding yourself needing a caffeine fix jumping between galleries? Stop at David’s Cafe on Alton Road for a Cuban Cafecito.
If you want to escape the crowds and have a stiff drink and bar food. Head to Mac’s Club Deuce. One of Miami’s oldest dive bars and is located right on the beach off 14th. You won’t see any tourists as you sip your whiskey. – Al Davis, Creative Director
When in Rome.. Or well In Miami you must sip a rum cocktail outside, next to a pool. But do it Miami 2016 style .. in a hostel, with a retro rum tiki cocktail in hand at Broken Shaker at the Freehand Miami. Named one of the best Hotel Bars in the world, you won’t regret sitting poolside with guests of the hostel and industry hipsters in mix-matched outdoor furniture. -Sarah Sebastian, Director of Marketing .
Check out the satellite art fairs. Venture off the beach to explore the Wynwood galleries such as: Dorsch Gallery and Galleria Gum. -Alex Buitron, Partner
