There truly is no greater hour than happy hour. (And it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere, right?) With a bevy of prime dining establishments and fab happy hour deals, the Design District is the ideal spot to grab an après work cocktail.

Brunch is always a good idea. Whether you’re looking for a casual spot to grab coffee after yoga or a scene to see-and-be-seen, there’s a spot at MDD that channels the weekend vibe you’re feeling. But what to wear once you’ve chosen a restaurant? We’ve shopped some of our favorite designers’ spring collections to put together the perfect brunch outfit for each of our favorite hot spots.   Chic Brunch at Estefan Kitchen A flirty little white dress that coordinates with the sleek all-white decor and Latin vibes at Estefan Kitchen is perfect for a chic brunch. (Just be careful with the Huevos Criollo or Guava & Cream Cheese Pancakes!) This asymmetrical Alice + Olivia dress is easy to move in and equally glam. Pair with a classic Saint Laurent chain bag for the perfect pop of color. With a menu chock full of Cuban goodies like Lechon & Eggs or Churassco al Caballo, MDD’s newest hot spot is the perfect place to bring the squad for brunch. Casual Brunch at Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink Keep it real (yet high end) and pop by Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink for its famous brunch. Opt for a pair of Zadig & Voltaire white jeans and a silky cami for a pretty look that feels current. Pair with a Valentino Rockstud crossbody that channels the same carefree rock ‘n roll vibe of your #OOTD. Nosh on shrimp and grits or buttermilk pancakes for a taste of Genuine comfort food as you fete the weekend.
