Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

Retro hotel with authentic MiMo-style touches perfect for a weekend away from the madness of everyday life

Splashed in the neighborhood’s signature MiMo-style architecture, this charming hotel features modern amenities with retro accents. The Vagabond originally opened in 1953, an alleged hang of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack. Its restoration has been heartily received by locals and lovers of old Miami. At the center of the bi-level property is a pristine mosaic pool, whose iconic tile mermaid was restored from the original. Most of the rooms are small, fitting only an armoire rather than a full closet, but comfortable and contemporary. Vagabond Kitchen and Bar, the restaurant on property, serves modern gastro fare and a lively brunch on Sundays. 

Neighborhood: The MiMo District is quickly becoming a hot piece of Miami. Though not as walkable as South Beach, it offers plenty of dining options, great architecture and a short commute to downtown, Wynwood and Miami Beach. 

Ms. Cheezious: An impressive variety of the best grilled cheese sandwiches in Miami
Bousa Brewing: Local beers and ping pong in a neighborhood atmosphere 
Jimmy’s Eastside Diner: Hearty breakfast joint featured in the movie Moonlight 

Time Out tip: Every Saturday, from 8pm to midnight, there’s a party—complete with live DJ—at the pool bar. It’s a great chance to pregame a bit before a night out.
