As the world begins to mercifully feel less like 2020, one thing we’re seeking out is live music. We missed it so much during the pandemic that we even bought a harmonica online. Thankfully, there are now even more live music options in Miami - including these four exciting new venues where you can bust out those sweet harmonica dance moves you’ve been working on over the past year.
Space Park is a huge outdoor event space and marketplace brought to us by the Club Space team. And even if you’re not a Club Space regular, you should check this place out. The venue will do the occasional ticketed show, but they’ve recently opened to the public on Friday and Saturday for their Trippy Market, which is a blast. You can have some drinks, lay in a hammock, watch live bands, and grab food from one of the onsite vendors, which includes very good pizza and one of our favorite food trucks in town, the plant-based Sunday. Admission to Trippy Market is free and you can RSVP online.
Directly next door to Space Park, you’ll find Heartland. This place is more of a chill, sit-down dinner experience. You can order drinks and food like mahi mahi, ribeye, and roasted veggies off your phone while watching some great live local music - all underneath a massive tree that’ll make you feel like a forest creature. This is a great date spot and, if you’re here on the weekend, you can just walk right over to Space Park after you’re done.
During the day, Oak Garden is Smart Bites To Go, a vegan restaurant with an outdoor garden space. But Wednesday through Friday, that outdoor space becomes Oak Garden, a really cool music venue. Most shows here require a ticket, and they post about upcoming events on their Instagram page. Oak Garden feels secluded, but not claustrophobic - and there are usually some food vendors serving things like tacos and ramen. This place is quickly becoming one of our favorite spots to catch live, local music in Miami.
The Oasis is a big outdoor food hall and event space in Wynwood. They’re one of the few music venues in Wynwood, and tend to book touring acts like Charli XCX, Tiesto, and more shows that will require a ticket. Once you’re here, you’ll have a very good selection of food options to choose from, including fried chicken sandwiches, tacos, dumplings, and more. You can see a list of upcoming shows here.
