Welcome to Downtown Miami, Florida

Worldly sophistication meets with a rich history and tropical setting in the pulse of Florida’s most famous city.
Reflecting the ever-present Florida sun during the day and lit with a glow at night, the skyline is part of what defines the district of Downtown Miami. Within the shelter of these towers lies a collection of shops, museums, galleries, theaters, and restaurants, punctuated by corporate offices and glitzy nightclubs. 
Downtown Miami has always been known for its dynamism, and since its early beginnings in the 19th-century the neighborhood has blossomed into the commercial and cultural hub for all of South Florida. Globally recognized and rivaling the downtowns of cities like New York and Chicago, Downtown Miami is urban excellence at its finest.
Home to millionaires and billionaires, the luxury condos and penthouses of Downtown Miami are what we've come to expect from the silver screen, but here they're reality. Among the most coveted locations in the neighborhood, the 1000 Museum was designed by famed architect Zaha Hadid and is one of Miami’s most prestigious residential buildings. Breathtaking views of the Miami River, Biscayne Bay, and of course, the high-rises themselves mean that every day begins and ends with a visual treat for homeowners.

Local Lifestyle

Residents of Downtown Miami aren’t satisfied by affluence or luxury alone — they’re looking for a little bit of the awe-inspiring in every experience, and the city is more than ready to meet the demand. Award-winning dining, world-famous galleries, and resort condos that feel born from a fairytale all await in this radiant neighborhood, ideal for those who love a busy, high-class lifestyle.

Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping

The fashionistas at heart thrive in Downtown Miami, due in part to its proximity to some of the nation’s best luxury shopping centers. Perhaps the most noteworthy is Miami’s Design District, a glorious expanse of sleek, modern architecture, top-tier designer boutiques, and flagship stores for fashion’s biggest names, including but not limited to Balenciaga, Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Fendi, Dior, Burberry, and Prada
Downtown Miami teems with incredible dining options, and the cuisine here can range from the contemporary Mediterranean to sweet lattes and French bistros. Notable for authentic Japanese fare and modern takes on sushi, sashimi, and izakaya dining, Zuma Miami is the first state-side venue for Chef Rainer Becker’s internationally acclaimed menu and overlooks the calm waters of the Miami River. 
Also tucked along the river’s edge, Il Gabbiano is the go-to for classy, fine dining Italian on the waterfront. If you’re ready to expand you palate, you can grab a bite of authentic Greek cuisine at the airy and welcoming Meraki Greek Bistro. Craving a little after-dinner treat? Downtown Miami is full of ice cream shops and bakeries like dbakers Sweet Studio, known for their custom cakes, macaroons, and cupcakes. 

Things to Do in Downtown Miami

Miami wouldn’t be internationally recognized as a premier entertainment destination if it didn’t maintain its fair share of venues and special events, and when it comes to pulse-raising performances and unforgettable experiences, Downtown more than delivers. 
Here, The American Airlines Arena — now known as The FTX Arena — serves as both a massive concert space and the home for the NBA’s Miami Heat. Top performers in the past have been some of the music industry’s biggest names, including Ariana Grande, Paul McCartney, Adele, and One Direction. 
Music lovers can also attend the annual Ultra Music Festival, known as the world’s preeminent electronic music event. Held outdoors over a three-day weekend, Ultra draws in more than 160,000 attendees each year with its showcase of globally recognized DJs and performers.
Those hoping for a quieter time out can venture to the Pérez Museum and explore its impressive collection of 20th- and 21st-century contemporary art from around the world. For nature lovers, the museum is adjacent to the spacious Maurice A. Ferré Park, and only minutes north of Miami’s beloved Bayfront Park
