“Bit of a treasure hunt”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is not an easy place to navigate and find what you want. Store are spread out over a few blocks and they tend to turn over quickly. I suggest driving around the streets first to see what there is before you park. It can be a bit of a walk between good stores without much interesting along the way. But having lunch at Michael's Genuine restaurant is the best part of a visit to the Design District.

“An Appalling Change”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We have visited Miami for many years, and always headed to the Design District as it has been the home base for many design firms and studios.(there are two architects in the family) There were wonderful old Florida style buildings, small outdoor restaurants,and good ones such as Fratelli/Lyon, as well as antique shops and a casual relaxed feel to the place.Now much of the old buildings have been knocked down, and are now huge soon-to-be-construction sites,the old restaurants are gone, and some of the furniture and design studios have beeen replaced with ultra expensive dress and shoe shops. For us the area has been ruined, as it may be for those who enjoy originality and the feeling of being somewhere "real", not an
other shopping center to be with glitz. And I am sure some people will
find it to their taste. But we are very sad to see such changes.

“Chic and Funky”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

If you want to get away from the cliche South Beach scene you definitely have to go the Design District. Has a great chic feeling to it, but at the same time it is filled with original artistic beauty. With art at every corner, high end retail shops, and the best restaurants to choose from, Design District should be at the top of your list.
