Coffee Shop Redux

Inspired by the urban cool that is Miami’s Wynwood, another artsy, edgy neighborhood has emerged.

Near downtown Fort Lauderdale, Wynwood's sister city, Flagler Arts and Technology Village has sprouted as the new up-and-coming area for the arts. A monthly art walk (free) shows off the warehouse complex of art and media studios, while every day is a display of originality at FATVillage’s vintage coffee shop, Next Door at C & I Studios. Owner Joshua Miller designed the space adjacent to his studio to “cultivate creativity,” using props like antique typewriters, floor-to-ceiling bookshelf walls and a 1972 Airstream trailer. Sip on Intelligentsia coffee with full voyeuristic privileges to the studio.

Next Door at C & I Studios; 537 NW First Ave.; 301-996-5674.
