The essential guide for surviving Art Basel 2018 in Miami

The essential guide for surviving Art Basel 2018 in Miami

Where to refuel

Garden Café

Just across the street from the convention centre, try Art Basel’s annual pop-up Garden Café, with offerings by award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein.

Casa Tua

Book in advance for lunch at the iconic, family run Casa Tua, which is less than half a mile from the convention centre, and request a table in its lush garden. Try the tagliolini pasta with crème fraîche and caviar while you rub shoulders with the art world cognoscenti.

Matador Room

For lunch with a view, book a table at the Miami Beach EDITION hotel’s Matador Room. With a beautiful outdoor terrace under a verdant canopy, it overlooks the hotel’s pool and the Atlantic beyond. It doesn’t get more Miami than this.

Coffee Connoisseur

Keep an eye out for one of the local Panther Coffee shops and order a “mac milk cap”, an unbelievably strong and sweet cappuccino made with macadamia nut milk.


Cecconi’s atrium, located on the first floor of the Soho Beach House, is one of the best places for Hollywood celeb sightings, people watching and soaking up the hippest strata of the art social scene – and you don’t have to be a Soho House member to access it. However, expect crowds trying to cut through the hotel to the VIP Soho Beach Tent on the sand and a long wait at the valet.
