Wine lovers and wannabe-connoisseurs alike rejoice! This spring, Abaco Wines & Wine Bar, the Miami Design District’s premiere bespoke luxury wine shop and tasting room, has unveiled a robust social calendar chock full of tastings and educational events. Every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday, join Abaco’s knowledgeable sommeliers for a variety of events. Tickets for each event cost $25, which Abaco will refund with any $50 purchase in-store the day of the event.

If you’ve yet to hit Miami’s hautest weekly farmer’s market, drop what you're doing and pop by Jungle Plaza immediately to check out the 40+ vendors selling local produce, specialty foods, artisan breads, and more. From tasty treats to luxe organic beauty products, The Market #atMDD is your new Wednesday place to be. We popped by and rounded up our list of five great market finds.

Happy hour is the best hour, and now, Miami Design District is giving us two more wonderful ways to celebrate it this Spring. 

When I first walked into Palm Court’s newest restaurant (or dare I say music lounge?), Estefan Kitchen, the first thought that came to mind was that it was every bit “Miami.” Strewn throughout its interior, there were sparkling white pillars, deep blue and purple mood lighting, a live pianist, waiters buzzing by in head-to-toe white, a singer performing the classics from inside the indoor-outdoor bar, and of course, Miami’s finest foodies wining and dining. It may have been lunchtime on a weekday, but from inside Estefan Kitchen, you would have thought it was a Saturday night. And to match these see-and-be-seen vibes, the food, a menu of fine Cuban cuisine, was as tasty as it was beautifully presented. After the first few bites, it became wildly apparent that this “very Miami” spot was a very nice, lasting addition to the Design District, and it was one created by none other than superstar duo-turned-hospitality vets, Gloria and Emilio Estefan.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since our beloved Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink, the spot that really put the Design District on the map, first opened. But just like that, it’s March 13th, 2017... and here we are.
