Design District

DESTINATIONS usa florida miami design-district

North of Midtown, from about Northeast 38th to Northeast 42nd streets and across the other side of Interstate 195, the Design District ( is yet another 18 blocks of clothiers, antiques shops, design stores, and bars and eateries. The real draws here are the interior design and furniture galleries as well as über-high-end shopping that’s oh-so Rodeo Drive (and rivals Bal Harbour in North Beach).

Right outside Little Haiti’s boundaries, running from 50th to 77th streets along Biscayne Boulevard, is the MiMo Biscayne Boulevard Historic District, known in short as the MiMo District. This strip is noted for its Miami modernist architecture and houses a number of boutiques and design galleries. It’s sometimes seen as the latest extension of the growing Design District (with much cheaper rents). Within this district and in the neighborhoods to the east—collectively known as Miami’s "Upper East Side"—several new restaurants are beginning to open.
