The brainchild of Alan Faena, the inaugural Faena Festival will take place from December 3 to December 9. Zoe Lukov, Faena Art’s curator, has curated the programming of new commissions, films, talks, and performances. Installations and experiences will be on view and take place throughout the Faena District and Miami at large.
Stiltsville Fish Bar
Culinary duo Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth’s Stiltsville Fish Bar opened in Sunset Harbour as an ode to McInnis’s childhood in the Panhandle. With their enthusiasm for water activities like fishing and boating, the pair’s love of seafood triumphed.
The Webster, a luxury multi-brand retailer, is Miami’s best curated boutique, carrying over 200 designer brands including Chanel, Celine, Dior, Gucci, Valentino, Off-White, and many others. We recommend Beauty by La Bouche Rouge, Amélie Pichard accessories exclusive to The Webster, and the launch of Fausto Puglisi.
