Miami's Top Pop-Ups

A summer fling is always a good thing, especially when it comes to Miami's local spots that offer limited, but undeniably great, novelties.

If there’s anything Miami loves, it’s the pop-up—or those eateries, stores or attractions that are only open for short periods of time. They give you all the fun you need, without the commitment we fear. Let us help you pick out your artistic summer fling, whether it be a limited-edition menu or late-night music. Go before they're gone.

Restaurant Takeover

Through Independence Day, Chef Daniel Boulud will be taking the helm of db Bistro Moderne’s kitchen and its menu. The New York chef has created a name for himself at DBGB Kitchen and bar, and with help from others he’ll be bringing Big Apple favorites to the Magic City. On the menu, find a raw bar, housemade sausages, jacked-up burgers, yummy sweets and more. Behind the bar, guests can try out beers from New York state’s Southern Tier Brewing Company and wines from Whole Hog Feasts. db Bistro Modern, 255 Biscayne Boulevard Way, Miami, 305.421.8800

Movies and Art

For the next two Fridays evenings, head to the South Beach Hotel for a night of films you’re definitely not going to find at your local movie theater. On June 20, catch “Pussy Riot,” the Russian girl band that has become an international icon in the fight for freedom, and on June 27, “The Woodmans” documents the oddball family of photographers and artists. Plus, immerse yourself in the arts with an exhibit of 40 artists from around the world. Events start at 7 pm, and movies are screened at 8 pm. South Beach Hotel, 236 21st St., Miami Beach, 305.531.3464 

Under the Tree

For the month of June, Wynwood’s Oak Tavern is introducing a late-night menu fit with live music on Saturdays from 11 pm to 2 am. Close out the night (or get it started!) with bacon marmalade toast, duck sliders stuffed with foie gras, an impressive cheese and charcuterie plate, and other unique dishes. Cuban Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Felipe Lamoglia will take the center stage on June 21, and the next weekend global music band Lanzamallas will have you up on your feet. Oak Tavern Miami, 35 NE 40th St., 786.391.1818
