After a hot day trekking around Wynwood, you may find yourself craving a designer beer to take the edge off your arduous itinerary. Brought to you by the same guys behind LoKal, a gastro pub in the southern suburb of Coconut Grove that has Miami critics reaching for the superlative thesaurus, Kush has a core philosophy of local, simple, fresh and artisan that has turned it into the watering hole of choice among the Wynwood hipster set. With 18 craft beers on tap, including several exclusive brands, this place makes good on its promise as a “beer geek’s heaven”. The food, too, is perfect for a recharging lunch or a filling dinner that will soak up the afternoon booze. Offering an upmarket take on what can only be described as “redneck cuisine”, highlights include Florida Alligator Bites, Pork Sausages with fried pickles and, of course, the famous burgers, featuring patties that are ground in-house daily. Naturally, if you ask, they can tell you about the farm where the meat came from.
Just north of Downtown Miami is Wynwood, an area that has become the epicentre of Miami’s transformation into a cultural destination. Once a rather shabby industrial area, many of the abandoned warehouses here have been converted into studios, cafés, galleries and excellent restaurants.
