Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood has gone through multiple transformations over the years, and its latest iteration has brought a revitalization that has turned it into one of the trendiest areas in the city. So it’s no surprise that Soho House has opened its second Magic City location, Miami Pool House, at the border of Wynwood and Edgewater.
The Pool Area: A Colorful Oasis
Miami Pool House features three main buildings – the Pool House, the Loft, and the Cottage – centered around a Palm Springs-inspired pool. The pool area is a vibrant and colorful oasis, with pink-and-white pool tiles, yellow-and-blue striped day beds, and tropical-print loungers. The space offers live music daily and a weekend market featuring art and food stalls from member-owned businesses.
Design Inspiration: A Nod to History and Culture
The design of the Miami Pool House pays homage to the area’s rich history, with floral prints and bold colors that nod to the neighborhood’s Puerto Rican heritage. The three structures on the one-acre property have a fascinating history of their own, with the Pool House having once been a 1940s printing factory, the Loft a 1960s machine shop, and the Cottage a Sears kit home from 1926.
The Miami Pool House’s main restaurant is helmed by executive chef Andrea Cavaliere, offering small bites and larger plates with a focus on local seafood. The menu also includes outdoor dining options and poolside bites. The property also features a communal workspace in the Loft and a coffee and snack bar in the Cottage. The Cottage transforms into a pop-up dining experience featuring a rotating roster of chefs and restaurants, including chef Deborah de Corral’s Tigre.
Art and Creativity
In addition to the pool and restaurant, the Miami Pool House offers a variety of communal spaces that encourage creativity, including artist workshops hosted by local institutions like Bakehouse Art Complex and Oolite Arts. The property also features 60 works of art from artists with ties to Miami or the Caribbean, adding a unique and colorful touch to the space.
Like every Soho House location, the Miami Pool House is about community, offering events and workshops focused on creativity, fitness, and family. The location also participates in the Soho Fellowship program, which provides complimentary memberships to creatives from diverse backgrounds with financial barriers.
The Miami Pool House is a vibrant and colorful oasis in the heart of Wynwood, offering a unique and immersive experience for members of the Soho House community. For those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, the Miami Pool House is the perfect retreat.
