Going to Art Basel this year? Let us help you navigate where to go, eat, and stay for one of Miami's biggest events of the year. We've also curated a few events in the ICBRKR app - find the ones that pique your interest and RSVP, buy tickets, and connect with the community straight from the app (iOS // Android). Be sure to update your Travel Schedule too so you can sync up with other ICBRKRs on location.

A few tips

  • Arrive in Miami a few days before -- on Wednesday or even Tuesday -- to enjoy the calm before the storm. It's nice to visit Art Basel Miami for the Wednesday preview and attend a few private events. Most of the art works will be sold by Friday, so it's nice to check them out before it's gone.

  • Must do the art walk at Wynnwood and Art Basel Miami

  • The more affordable arts will be at Scope and Untitled

  • My favourite shows are Art Basel Maimi and Design Miami (cool furnitures)

  • Make reservations ahead of time. It's almost impossible to get dinner anywhere if you wait.

  • Stay in midtown or close to where you will hang out the most. Traffic will be awful so this will help you stay mobile.

  • Soho House (Beach House) has some fun events and it is the place to be. If you are not a member, make sure to go with friends who are.

  • Renting a house or apartment is a better deal than staying at a hotels, unless you've booked ahead of time (we're talking 6 months ago). That said, Miami hotels are super cool to stay in.

  • It's usually a bit rainy during this time; consider packing a light jacket.
