Florida, Miami Guide (B): Miami Food Halls and Cultural Spaces

There’s a trend sweeping the world, turning the old dine and drink concept on its head. No one wants to cram into a crowded bar at Happy Hour or wait for a table at the most popular restaurant in town anymore. People want something effortless and fun that offers variety and a nice atmosphere. Thus, the hipster food hall concept emerged. Miami’s food halls and cultural spaces provide a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a variety of different food and drink and sometimes live music.

There’s no need to agree on what you’re in the mood to eat; different vendors, stalls and trucks provide options for everyone.
