Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Whitewaller is back and ready to bring you all you need to know for the Miami fairs. All week-long we’ll bring you “Insider Tips” from those in-the-know on what to see, do, eat, and drink. Next up, Dayssi Kanavos, owner of Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach.
“Bodega is one of my favorite happy hour/ munch spots in South Beach. Chef Bernie Matz has created a modern take on Mexican that goes perfectly with his extensive tequila menu. No trip to South Beach is complete without spending time with uber-mixologist Albert Trummer at The Drawing Room. Meg Sharpe’s interior brought back the cool Rat Pack vibe that Morris Lapidus originally envisioned for Shelborne.”
“For something offbeat, visit the so-called “Museum of the Streets,” Wynwood Walls, and see the world’s greatest artists working in the graffiti and street art genre. Jeffrey Deitch co-curated the first successful year of the project, cementing its place in cultural history. Also, I recommend a visit to the PAMM, designed by Pritzker Prize–winning architects Herzog & de Meuron. Awe-inspiring “Shower Curtains” by Oscar Muñoz welcome you on arrival from a distance.”
“Rosa de la Cruz Collection is very unique, with artist- and docent-led tours of one of the world’s most import art collections. Rosa’s personal eye makes this contemporary art space a masterpiece in itself. Don’t be surprised if you see her leading a tour with top artists in tow!”
“Most travelers spend a lot of time by the pool or beach, but locals are usually cruising around on their boats. Visiting Miami’s great lunch spots by boat or going to the keys with friends is a completely different experience. It’s chic, laid-back, and plugs you right into nature.”
