Our customers come from all over South Florida for a new car or to get their car serviced at our service department, so we get to hear about all of the cool little neighborhoods scattered throughout the city and Coconut Grove is one that has been coming up quite a bit lately. Have you heard about it? It’s a pretty cool neighborhood located about 40 minutes from Miami Lakes. We checked it out for ourselves and this is what we learned.
Coconut Grove is a pretty, cute neighborhood located south of downtown Miami. Even though it isn’t a far drive from the busy downtown area, it has a completely different vibe. Coconut Grove is a laid back community that has a lot of art and community events. The neighborhood has been thriving for more than a hundred years and it seems to get better as it ages. Whether you are looking for a new place to go for a night out, a neighborhood to live in, or a weekend getaway, Coconut Grove has a lot to offer.
Coconut Grove has a variety of dining styles from fun and casual to fine dining. In the mood for a relaxing place to grab a bite and have a couple of drinks? Check out Barracuda Taphouse, El Taquito. If you’re a college student attending nearby University of Miami, you might want to just skip the food and go to Fat Tuesdays for a frozen alcoholic drink available in any flavor you could imagine.
If you are celebrating a special occasion some finer options include: Panorama Restaurant Sky Lounge, Spasso and more..
