The best Miami pool parties for wilding out or keeping it cool

There are few pleasures more universally loved in life than day drinking by a pool, and in Miami, you better believe we indulge regularly. We've got lavish hotel decks, rooftop pools you can actually get into and public watering holes aplenty. None, however, beckon so boldly as a full-on pool party. Yes, we have the kind of splashy untz-untz ragers filled with bachelor and bachelorette crews. But we also have poolside get-togethers that skew more local and low-key. When you’re ready to trade in your club nights for a piña colada-soaked day in the sun, we’ve scoped out the best Miami pool parties for going wild or keeping chill.

The best July events in Miami

Summer is getting intense: It's July and, believe it or not, this is not Miami's hottest month. (August gets that distinction). Weather aside, July in Miami actually has so much to offer, including trusty backup plans for a rainy day and plenty of fun things to do with kids while they're out of school.

The best October events in Miami

We know, it’s not exactly sweater weather here in Miami. These October days are still long, hot and primed for impromptu afternoons at the best Miami beaches—that is unless the forecast calls for storms (in which case, there are still plenty of fun things to do when it’s raining in Miami). And yet, there is something different about the city this time of year. This month marks the unofficial start of the festival season. It seems many of the best October events in Miami are big celebrations either held outdoors in Wynwood, on the sand in South Beach or even across Miami theaters. We close out the month with Halloween, but visits to pumpkin patches, haunted houses and spooky sights are also on the agenda. There’s no time for rest now that these October events in Miami are upon us, so mark your calendars and prepare for a busy season ahead.

CubatĂłn Sandwich Shop

CubatĂłn Sandwich Shop

After kicking off his culinary career in New York, David Reidenberg transplanted to Miami during the pandemic and eventually created CubatĂłn, a worthy homage to this town’s most famous dish. The tiny shopfront a block off Española Way serves a tight menu of handhelds, from “The Classic” Cubano to pan con lechĂłn and medianoche, all made with pork marinated in citrus-garlic mojo and slow-roasted for over 14 hours. Of course, the bubbly, 30-year-old Reidenberg has included a couple of his own new-wave creations, like a Cuban made with hot honey (delicious) and even a veggie option. On the sweet side, pair the pan con timba (a pressed guava and queso sandwich like abuela would make) with an iced cafĂ© bonbĂłn, a double shot of Cuban-style espresso served over ice and topped with a homemade tres leches blend and a drizzle of sweetened condensed milk. The batidos (milkshakes) are seasonal, like this summer's pineapple and coconut flavor. The shop itself is sunny and teal-hued in keeping with the Deco neighborhood. There’s a smattering of sidewalk seats and a small bench inside, so don’t plan to linger long. Luckily, all of the items pair perfectly with a day at the beach, just a short walk away.

Marion to shut its doors after nearly a decade

Update: On June 11, Mr. Hospitality announced that Marion will retain its name. The restaurant will undergo a complete renovation this summer and unveil a fresh menu and beverage program upon reopening with a new look in the fall. A trailblazer in Brickell's now rampant supper club scene is about to shut its doors—but not for good. Marion's last day of service will be on June 22. Mr. Hospitality, the Miami-based group behind Marion, El TucĂĄn, Baoli, Queen and others, has not yet announced what will take the restaurant's place or an exact reopening date, but an official unveiling of the new concept is slated for September 2024.

Museum of Ice Cream to return to Miami with a permanent home in Downtown

Museum of Ice Cream to return to Miami with a permanent home in Downtown

It feels like a lifetime ago—2017—when the Museum of Ice Cream first melted into the collective consciousness of Miami. Back then, our writer described it as “a playground for the social media generation.” Words like “immersive” and “experiential” were only just beginning to trickle into the mainstream, and the concept of a “pop-up” in Miami didn’t instantly trigger pandemic PTSD, with maybe a twinge of nostalgia. Now, the sold-out and extended experience that first took up residence in the Faena District (following massively successful locations in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco) will return to Miami permanently in early 2024. The new Museum of Ice Cream Miami will live in Downtown’s Miami Worldcenter at 851 NE 1st Avenue (Unit #134). Slated to debut in early 2024, it will span two floors and more than 14,000 square feet along the development’s pedestrian promenade between 1st and 2nd Avenues. Rendering: Courtesy Miami Worldcenter Designed by the MOIC in-house team, the “multi-platform, immersive experience” will also incorporate AI technology to transport guests into a pastel-hued, sprinkle-coated wonderland, “fostering human connection through the shared love of ice cream,” according to the official release.  MOIC visitors will find 10 interactive, Miami-inspired installations, among them the Cream Liner, a luxury airliner experience inspired by the ’60s and ’70s; and The Hall of Freezers, a trippy exploratory room filled with dozens of mysterious refrigerator d

South Florida is about to get absolutely drenched this week

South Florida is about to get absolutely drenched this week

Update: As of June 12, the flood watch has been extended through Thursday evening. Miami’s early summer has been suspiciously devoid of its usual afternoon rainstorms, but that’s about to change this week. The Atlantic hurricane season is officially underway and, right on schedule, weather forecasters are tracking a tropical system that could douse South Florida and much of the state with 10 or more inches of rain over the next several days. Ahead of the deluge, a flood watch has been issued for parts of South Florida through Wednesday evening, including Miam-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Conditions are expected to deteriorate around midnight tonight, when excessive rainfall could trigger flash flooding from excessive runoff, especially in low-lying, flood-prone areas. Meteorologists are predicting Southwest Florida will be hit hardest, with some areas bracing for up to 22 inches of rain. According to the National Weather Service, enhanced tropical moisture is expected to pool across South Florida through the week, resulting in prolonged periods of heavy rain. How long is it going to be raining? Though the flood watch is currently in effect through Wednesday evening, the slow-moving system is forecast to keep Miami drenched until at least Saturday. But don’t expect the rain to let up much after that. It might have gotten a stalled start, but Florida’s wet season is finally kicking into gear.  According to The Weather Channel, Miami gets about 45 inches of rain (nearl

III Points just dropped its main 2024 festival lineup

We’re about four months ouf from the 2024 edition of III Points, Miami’s massive, late-night music festival for more underground sounds, and today the team has dropped the main lineup for the eleventh edition. Taking place at the Mana Wynwood Convention Center on October 18 and 19, III Points had already announced Justice, Toro y Moi and Jamie XX as three of its 2024 headliners earlier this year. Now, to get us even more hyped than we already were, the festival has added more than 50 new names to the bill. New highlights from the 60-plus artist lineup include British trip-hop collective Massive Attack, who have not played in the city since 2010, and English electronic music duo Disclosure. Trailblazing legends George Clinton and his Parliament-Funkadelic are also among the freshly announced headliners. Known for its eclectic lineups and boundary-pushing art and technology installations, III Points celebrated its tenth anniversary last year, standing out as a reliable festival alternative to Miami’s annual EDM bacchanal, Ultra. Unlike other festivals, III Points kicks off in the evening, running 13 hours a day and raging until 4am for two days straight. This year’s festival spans 11 stages and genres from rap, indie rock and funk to underground dance, legacy acts and driving techno. Over the next several weeks, expect even more acts to be announced, in addition to lineups for the official satellite parties, artist and brand activations and more. In the meantime, read up on the

In a fickle city as obsessed with self-care as it is staying out late, it can be hard to pinpoint what fitness trend Miamians will gravitate to next. Will it be saunas and circuit training? Cold plunges and cryo-sculpting? The new Studio Three in Wynwood might have cracked the code, uniting three of the most popular fitness modalities—interval training, cycling and yoga—under one roof. Founded in Chicago and expanding across the country, Studio Three will open at 90 NW 29th Street in Wynwood on Friday, June 14, marking the boutique brand’s fifth U.S. outpost.

QP Tapas and the Lost Boy crew just opened a new spot in Miami Beach

The long-awaited latest project from Lost Boy & Co. finally opens tonight in South Beach. Located at 1710 Alton Road in Miami Beach, Brother’s Keeper brands itself as a neighborhood spot with “low-brow beer, high-brow cocktails and off-beat bites” cooked up by the acclaimed QP Tapas team, chefs Josh Elliott and Ellie Groden. Just around the corner from Joliet, Lost Boy's Cajun-inspired spot that closed suddenly in April, Brother’s Keeper has a distinctly Old Florida feel, full of lovably eccentric design details like jai alai cesta baskets, glass blocks and a 25-foot neon-backlit saltwater aquarium lining the wall behind the bar. "We're blending the past with the present in our unique way,” says Randy Alonso, co-founder and Creative Director of the Lost Boy & Co. hospitality brand. “This is the place you go to cross paths with a mystic, fall in love with a friend, buy a drink for a stranger and find good company, most of the time.” Photograph: Alex MarkowBrother's Keeper According to Alonso's Lost Boy counterpart Chris Hudnall, guests can expect the "unstoppable energy and charisma of the 80s, combined seamlessly with the laid-back meets high-standards vibe of Miami Beach today."

At just over 1,300 square feet, the intimate spot boasts a powerhouse marriage of food and beverage offerings from two of Miami's most acclaimed hospitality players.

Regardless, it’s a great day to celebrate our southern neighbors while taking advantage of festive parties and specials around town, including on some of the best tacos in Miami. As usual, seemingly every restaurant and bar in Miami, Mexican or not, is getting in on the action this year, and we’ve rounded up the best of it below. Listed in no particular order, all fiestas go down Sunday, May 5 unless otherwise noted. 1. Cinco de Mayo Bar Crawl – Brickell & Wynwood Go all out with two days of bar crawls spanning two rowdy neighborhoods, Wyndood (meet at The Dirty Rabbit) and Brickell (meet at Blackbird Ordinary). This longrunning tradition beckons the tequila-fueled youth with tickets that include your cover charge, holiday “swag” and a drink at each stop along the way.

The Balloon Museum from “Emily in Paris” is coming to Miami

Even if you don't watch the Netflix blockbuster about a social media-savvy American girl building brands and breaking hearts in the City of Light, you probably have an idea of Emily in Paris' picture-perfect world. And this highly photogenic immersive exhibit featured in Season 3 is about to float its way over to Miami. Balloon Museum opens on June 22 at Mana Wynwood, showcasing the inflatable installation works of 20 internationally acclaimed artists through October 6. Experienced by over 4.4 million visitors during its limited runs in Rome, Paris, Milan, Madrid, London, New York and others, the first-of-its-kind exhibition dubbed "Let's Fly" presents larger-than-life contemporary artworks in a hands-on, immersive environment. What should I expect at the Balloon Museum? An ideal refuge from the scorching heat and daily storms of summer in Miami, the Balloon Museum invites visitors of all ages to explore the contrast between lightness and heaviness through the medium of air. Visitors are encouraged to interact with the art, touching and feeling the various pieces exhibited. Basically, the exact opposite of the “don’t touch the art” mantra that dominates trips to more traditional museums.

Our favorite pandemic pop-up finally has a permanent home

Pandemic what? It feels like lifetimes ago when we sat under the banyan tree at Lot 6 in Little River, awaiting our Parker House rolls, oysters and martinis in the warm, reassuring open air. Those were the evenings we were allowed to set aside our worries and commune with friends and loved ones over delicious food, gleefully ordering another round of Green Ghouls from the friendliest servers—even when their smiles were covered with masks. It was strange, fraught times, but Sunny’s Steakhouse was an especially bright glimmer during its tenure as a pop-up. A product of the award-winning Jaguar Sun team when that small, indoor-only space was forced to shut down, Sunny’s was an instant hit, beckoning the masses to a quiet, industrial side street to partake in perfectly done cuts of meat, beautifully dressed salads and surprisingly delicious desserts (remember that foie gras-topped mousse?). Photograph: Cleveland Jennings After a couple of successful seasons operating on the weekends—earning fervent fans and well-deserved accolades along the way—Sunny’s closed for renovations in May of 2022. And now there’s finally a reopening on the horizon. Slated to make its Little River homecoming this fall at the original Lot 6 location, Sunny’s will return with a new look, much-appreciated air conditioning and regular service throughout the week.
