From festivals and plays to street fairs, many of our annual happenings are being postponed or canceled to ensure event-goers’ safety. 

As things change and officials make decisions on which Miami events will be canceled, we’ll be here to update you on what’s happening. Check back often as we’ll be sharing new information as it comes our way.

Time Out Market Miami - CLOSED

Restaurants South Beach

Have you ever flipped through a copy of Time Out Miami magazine and wanted to just take a bite out of it? Yeah, we kind of feel the same way when we’re writing about all that delicious stuff and sorting through those food photos. We have, on more than one occasion, nearly drooled onto our keyboard. That’s sort of the thought process behind Time Out Market: take all these amazing chefs, restaurants and dishes that we rave about and get them all together in one place, the perfect culinary sample of a city. Simply put, the only chefs, bars, restaurants we consider for Time Out Market have already been celebrated by Time Out editors. So before the first drink is poured or the first dish is served, we know it’s a five-star destination. For everything there is to know about the eateries, drinks and art at TOMM, click here.

HistoryMiami - CLOSED

Things to do Downtown

It’s young, but South Florida does have a past and a lively one at that. Tracing the history of the region, from early Indians to rafting Cubans, HistoryMiami succeeds in educating while entertaining. The exhibits on the wreckers of Key West and Henry Flagler both merit an extended look, as does the section on photographer Ralph Middleton Munroe.

Café La Trova - CLOSED

Restaurants Cafés East Little Havana

Café La Trova is the delicious byproduct of a most fruitful partnership: James Beard Award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein, her chef/restaurateur husband David Martinez, and nationally acclaimed cantinero Julio Cabrera. The old-Cuba style fits right in with Little Havana’s nostalgia-tinged nightlife scene. Cabrera’s cocktail menu takes you back in time from pre-Revolutionary Cuba to present-day Miami: channel the island’s most famous midcentury expat with a Hemingway Special (rum, maraschino, grapefruit and lime), drink to Havana’s famed Hotel Nacional (rum, apricot liquor, pineapple and lime) or sip on a Yin & Tony, an updated gin & tonic with an amusing phonetic moniker. Bernstein puts her own spin on the Cuban classics, serving a Spanish-inspired Cubano with Serrano jam, empandas filled with hand-cut steak and an unbelievable paella croqueta.
