In the Heart of Wynwood

Draped in graffiti art, bursting with contemporary watering holes, and exuding an overwhelmingly hip ambiance, Wynwood is one of Miami’s most exciting neighborhoods. Mayami is tucked on Northwest 23rd Street, less than a half block from Wynwood’s principal Northwest 2nd Avenue artery. Mayami sits on the same block as the multifaceted 1-800-Lucky Asian food hall, craft-donut mecca The Salty, and dessert purveyor Yann Couvreur Café. While Mayami can surely keep guests entertained for days on end, a Wynwood adventure is always right at its friendly doorstep.

Total Tulum Vibes

Spare the plane ticket to the Mexican Caribbean, as Mayami’s vibe exudes Tulum bliss. Open-air spaces abound with tasteful touches like mature trees, dots of greenery, a tile-draped bar, soaring outdoor chandeliers, and so much more. With more than 10,000 square feet of space, it’s a truly morphable venue, be it for weekend brunches or star DJ performances throughout the week. Periodic fire dancers, aerialists, and other entertainers also add to the otherworldly atmosphere.

Mexican-Meets-Mediterranean Menu

Mayami is open until 3 a.m. daily, opening at 5 p.m. on weekdays and noon on weekends. The Wynwood hotspot keeps things fresh with specials all week-long, with a truly unique hybrid of Mexican, Mediterranean, and sushi creations. Its dinner menu includes a serrano pepper dashed guacamole, truffle pasta, wagyu-loaded tacos, and intricate sushi rolls. And, yes, you can get some churros to go. You’ll want to pair your meal with a meticulously crafted cocktail, such as the popular Black Warrior margarita, which is infused with Tequila Maestro Dobel and topped with white orchid flowers. On weekends, Mayami comes alive for a special brunch, with concoctions like a truffle hollandaise-doused benedict and bottomless mimosas. Its happy hour—from 5 to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 6 to 8 p.m. on Sundays—includes $5 cocktails, $8 sushi rolls, and much more.
