Where to Live

Most single-family homes in the Upper East Side are pre-1950 and are in need of a renovation. Many of the new residents live in multi-family or mid-rise condo buildings. Most are tucked away on side streets but are within walking distance to Biscayne Boulevard where most of the commerce takes place. Closer to the intercostal bay, homes are more lavish and expensive. Further east of the neighborhood the cost of living rises as well. There is a mix of generational locals and Miami transplants that make this neighborhood unique and its growth in popularity is increasing.

Where to Eat

Many grassroots cafés and restaurants have sprung up along this corridor within the last five to ten years. You’ll see everything from French to Vietnamese fusion to novelty hot dog stands and organic juice and smoothie bars. The laid-back vibe in most of these local restaurants gives the neighborhood a sense of community and hold their weight against some of the trendier places in Miami.

What You'll See

You’ll see local residents shopping or continuing with their daily activities. Modern contemporary buildings from the 1960s and unique brands of businesses are highlighted up and down Biscayne Boulevard. Small outside eateries with well manicured vegetation in a sea of concrete sidewalks and streets are also a common scene. Here, you will see students, families, and young professionals residing next to each other in an emerging neighborhood.

Friday Night Fun

The small restaurants that had moderate traffic during the day now become the destination of choice for those in the surrounding area. Happy hours entice locals to have after-work cocktails and hor d'oeuvres. The national game of the week can be found on most televisions in sports bars only overshadowed by customers socializing. As the night gets longer, tables and barstools are removed to open up the dance floor when the music gets louder and the crowd gets livelier.

The Perfect Sunday

The Upper East Side is a ten-minute car ride to north beach, and most locals can be found headed in this direction. If they are not at the beach then they can be found running errands or having brunch at one of the quaint local bistros. If the beach doesn’t call them, watersports or fishing in the nearby Intracoastal Waterway is a popular destination.
