If you’re looking for the old Miami, the sort of sunscreen-streaked landscape we see in postcards and Don Johnson-led television dramas, don’t come to Brickell. You won’t find any of that here, in Miami’s financial district. The Brickell development boom has shown little interest in nostalgia, instead producing towering condos, brand new hotels and state-of-the-art shopping complexes with a shocking speed. All those skyscrapers, (free) public transportation and surprising walkability makes Brickell feel like a proper city. It’s become the sort of tightly bound urban core that scares the pants off of suburbanites used to their personal space, while luring young professionals looking for Manhattan vibes. The good news: there is plenty of substance behind all the flash. Brickell is home to not only tall buildings but some of the best restaurants in Miami and the best rooftop bars in Miami, too. What was once just an unremarkable patch of office buildings is now much, much more. And you should really check it out.
