Over the last couple of years there has been a push open up these hip spots on the Miami River. Before it was simply Garcia's and Casablanca's now you have other spots all moving in.

It's funny how the times have changed for the Miami River. There was a time that no business would go near the Miami River due to all the pollution and the bad odor from the river. The City of Miami spent millions cleaning that strip of the Miami River.


There is a huge primarily outdoor BBQ + bar spot in Brooklyn called Pig Beach. It coincidentally sits alongside a canal.

Fun place, was totally crowded and I wondered why they wouldn't try to open in Miami like all the NY places do.

Ramon: "Summer bro".

And that's really it.

Still haven't been to any of these new Miami River spots, a few years overdue from checking them out -- Wharf is probably next.

They may not have had food trucks, but the did serve food, and they had a great view of the Miami River. When Finnegans closed down Yacht River Club opened up in the same spot. The Wharf might be doing well now, but let's see how they do in July or August when it's hotter than the Devil's butthole outside.

Hm, interesting point.

The Wharf has plans to combat the summer heat. They will be fine.

Tried to hit Wharf on Friday night.

Literally all of South Miami and Kendall was there -- 30m+ line to get in at midnight.

Good for them! The days of waiting in lines for nightlife ended in my 20s though, will have to try again another day :(

Just wait 2 or 3 months Ben. It's only getting so crowded because it's the trendy, new spot that just opened. Once it starts getting hot at night, or when a new place opens up, or when people (like you) realize how it's not worth it to wait over 30 minutes in line to get into what is essentially just a patio the hype and crowds will die down.

Re: The death blow of DJS in Miami.....

Here's a snippet of an excellent article in today's NY Times....

That’s because, for the art of D.J.ing, technology has been as much of a disrupter as it has been a boon. New software and hardware tools allow the neophyte to deploy a base version of skills that take decades to perfect. We’ve also seen the nurturing of an entire generation for whom music is an à la carte experience. Add to that the skepticism, if not outright hostility, much of our society shows toward the notions of expertise and hard-won knowledge.

What this means is that people treat D.J.s as if they’re disposable. Like the entitled partygoer who demands Lil Pump’s “Gucci Gang” when the D.J. is on an entirely different musical planet, as if a D.J. were merely a flesh-and-blood iPod to poke and prod. Or the promoters who figure that, if you can get any old robot with an iTunes account to play whatever’s charting on the radio, why pay for specialness?

Alright, teach me something new for 2018. What's the purpose of that link? In case NY Times pulls the article down?
