DJ Jessica Who's Ideal Miami Night
July 26, 2013 | by LIANA LOZADA | Talk of the Town
A new crop of bars has DJ Jessica Who hopping from one hot spot to the next.
DJ Jessica Who has been behind the decks for almost a decade, solidifying herself as a music-maker with real staying power. The Skam Artist regular, who claims local talent like DJ Konflikt and DJ Boe as her Miami must-sees, was recently in town spinning at Gerber Group's Living Room. And while she admits that "as a DJ, half of your 'partying' time is spent doing homework," this is how her ideal Miami night goes down.
Stop one: food and cocktails. "My favorite dinner spot is probably Michael's Genuine Food & Drink—amazing food, great atmosphere."
Stop two: bar hopping. "We've had a lot of new bars open up in the past year, which is really cool since Miami is traditionally a club town. One of my favorites is Rec Room. I also like SL Miami, Gramps on the rare Saturday that I'm off, and my forever second home, Purdy Lounge."
Stop three: late-night eats. "Although we have great options, with my job you get burned out on them fast. I'm still not burned out on Los Perros, Colombian hotdogs with all the crazy stuff on top. For a sit down late-night, Moshi Moshi always works; the food is good and they stay open until 5 a.m. or later."
