Miami draws thousands of international visitors to the golden Atlantic coast each year but the shops, restaurants and bars of Lincoln Road Mall provide the perfect temptation to lure them away from breezy seaside loungers once the sun goes down. This legendary shopping oasis stretches across the entire city with swank sidewalk cafes, rowdy sports bars and sizzling steak houses designed to offer KTHY travelers many delicious distractions! Early birds and night owls can find all sorts of fun at this unique pedestrian-friendly destination.
Some of the top American retailers pay thousands of dollars just to be able to say they have a shop in the heart of the South Beach scene. From the naughty delights of Victoria’s Secret to the contemporary fashions of H & M, there is something for every style and budget on Lincoln Road Mall. Early risers stake claim to the best sidewalk tables each morning for a strong coffee and a front row seat to the shoppers on parade. Sunday mornings feature the Farmer’s Market and the Antique & Collectibles Flea Market where discerning shoppers sort through treasures and trinkets just after dawn.
Afternoons attract families and sports fans who fill the cafes and pubs with laughter while determined ladies sort through the racks at the Limited, Williams & Sonoma and the GAP. Large department store Macy’s stands at the center of the mall and Forever 21, Alchemist, Banana Republic and All Saint’s appeal to fashion-conscious teens. While it may be cold in many parts of the world, South Beach is all about outdoor living so there are plenty of shops offering swimwear, athletic apparel and collectible trainers for avid followers of fashion. From Nike to Blue Glue to Ulta, you’re sure to find just what you need on Lincoln Road Mall.
After dark, the mall is a popular gathering place for film lovers who flock to the Regal Stadium Cinema and the Colony Theater. Music fans wind their way up the steps of the Van Dyke Cafe to discover Upstairs – a speakeasy featuring live jazz every night of the week. Latin dance fans gather atop the Yuca Restaurant for nightly Cuban salsa dance classes followed by a dance party featuring the city’s finest Latin musicians. At the east end of the mall, the nightclub SET welcomes a roster of the world’s most popular DJs who keep crowds moving until the sun rises over the Atlantic once more. South Beach provides a welcome respite for KTHY travelers seeking sun, fun, and shopping in the heart of the action on Lincoln Road Mall.
