As you make your way through the marathon of events during Art Basel Miami Beach, stop to refuel at one of these spots nestled in the heart of all the action. From a coffee shop pop-up to Wynwood's latest culinary concept, here are the perfect places to squeeze into your schedule.
Freehand Miami will host Cafecito Integral in its lobby during Art Basel Miami Beach.
The Manhattan-based Café Integral brings its Nicaraguan coffee to Freehand Miami's lobby for a pop-up specializing in Cuban classics, including local pastelitos and pastries from Vicky Bakery. Get your caffeine fix to fuel your nonstop Art Basel schedule with drinks like coladas, cortaditos, and its newest invention, Spanish Latte—a shaken blend of spices, almond milk, espresso, and condensed milk. Available from December 2-6, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. 2727 Indian Creek Dr., Miami Beach, 305-531-2727
Head to Living Room Bar at W South Beach to toast Art Basel this year with a specially crafted cocktail in honor of the event. We suggest their drink, Le Jardin, which boasts a mélange of vodka, elderflower liqueur, and homemade green juice composed of wheatgrass, spinach, mint, honeydew, lemon, pineapple, and honey. Their in-house DJ will provide live entertainment every night from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. 2201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-938-3000
Chef Michelle Bernstein brings back her two beloved pop-ups to Miami Beach Botanical Garden this year, which are conveniently located right across the street from Miami Beach Convention Center. If you only have a moment for a quick break from all the Art Basel madness, The Garden Café by Michelle Bernstein is for you. However, those looking for a more formal affair can grab a seat to savor some of Bernstein's signature dishes at Michy's Pop Up. The Garden Café is available from November 30-December 6 with varying hours; Michy's Pop Up available from December 2-5, from 6 to 11 p.m. 2000 Convention Center Dr., Miami Beach
Miami's latest and longest pop-up, The Wynwood Yard, debuts just in time for Art Basel with a community-inspired space that can transform into everything from a yoga studio to a dynamic working space. Food trucks will also be around offering sustenance, including Myumi, a sushi bar on wheels, Arabian Knife, the first Miami food truck to use a doner (vertical rotisserie), and Della Test Kitchen, which serves up delicious plant-based bowls. Runs until Summer 2016. 70 NW 29th St., Miami
