The essential guide for surviving Art Basel 2018 in Miami

8 of 8 8/8

How to travel

Travel by tender: More than 80,000 people descend on Miami for Art Basel, which means traffic. The best way to travel from venue to venue is via the water. Locals are becoming more dependent on this chic way to avoid traffic, and the idea has even trickled into commerce. Uber has in previous years used its UberBOAT spin-off exclusively for Miami Art Week, allowing users to request boats to ferry them to Art Basel hotspots.

All three bridges from Miami to Miami Beach are parking lots during Miami Art Week. Skip the rush and tender in to the boat launch next to Sunset Harbour Yacht Club, which can berth yachts up to 45 metres, a mile from the Miami Beach Convention Center. Before you call a cab, cross the road for breakfast at Icebox Café. Try the lemon ricotta pancakes or southern-style eggs benedict with crab.

Stick to one side of the bridge: Another tip to avoid getting stuck in traffic for hours, when you could be rubbing shoulders with the world’s most influential artists and movie stars, is to group your invitations by area and decide whether to spend each night in Miami Beach or Miami.
