In addition to the above, Mid-Beach boasts of close proximity to the exclusive La Gorce Country Club and golf course, all the famous shopping and entertainment hotspots of South Beach, Mt. Sinai Hospital, the upscale Shops at Bal Harbour, and easy access to the mainland via I-95, making it one of the most sought-after neighborhoods to live in.

  • Hakkasan is one of the best Asian restaurants in Miami serving a scrumptious crispy duck salad and Cantonese fare in the Fontainebleau Hotel
  • Scarpetta at the Fontainebleau serves some of the best Italian favorites in a high-end setting with a side of ocean views

Shopping in Mid-Beach

Shopping options in Mid-Beach were quite modest until a few years ago, with only the Fontainebleau Shops ruling the roost. However, with the addition of the Faena Bazaar, residents now have more options in the stores that range from emerging designers to global luxury and lifestyle brands, a highly-curated collection of artisan luxury goods, rotating pop-ups, and an art gallery that got Vogue christening the Bazaar ‘Miami Beach’s new design destination.’

For a broader range of shopping options, residents can head to the iconic Lincoln Road mall in South Beach or drive up to the highly glamorous Bal Harbour Shops up north, also with great dining and cafe options. Still, they will find their favorite Starbucks closer to home in three locations - one at the 6080 condo-hotel, a second more south in the AC Hotel by Marriott, and another further north on Collins Avenue.

The Best Located Condo in Mid-Beach

Faena House

Faena House not only wins the tag of most luxurious, but also the best-located condo in our Mid-Beach study. To begin with, it is beachfront and a quick ride from South Beach plus its famous nightlife, art fairs, and shopping at Lincoln Road. Second, it sits right in the middle of the happening Faena District - surrounded by the Faena Hotel, Performing Arts Theater, Events Forum, and Bazaar that have come to infuse new life to Millionaire’s Row. Third, the Faena District also features a
walkscore of 74, making it one of the more walkable districts in Miami Beach. Last, but not least, it also connects easily to the mainland via the I-95.
