The Best of Miami's Sunset Harbour

That once-dodgy stretch on the west side of South Beach near the entrance to the Venetian Causeway has quickly grown into a mini hotspot.

Everything’s different in Sunset Harbour. The tiny community is essentially residential—the kind of place where the movers and shakers of Miami live. Locals pop into the neighborhood coffee or juice shop after a morning yoga or spin class. Independently owned stores like Cottage offer beautifully curated merchandise. Restaurants such as Pubbelly and Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante are putting the area on the map. There are still traces of the district’s industrial beginnings: Custom car shops and warehouses sit between stores, gyms and restaurants, but they just add to the locals-only vibe. And while some might describe the area as quiet, it takes but a walk down Purdy Ave­nue and its surrounding subtly buzzing streets to see that Sunset Harbour is just waking up.
