Bayside Marketplace is located in the heart of downtown Miami and is one of the largest outdoor waterfront dining, shopping and entertainment destinations in the U.S. Bayside features more than 150 shops including unique and national retailers such as Guess, Gap, Victoria’s Secret and Brookstone as well as 12 delicious restaurants such as Hard Rock Café, Los Ranchos, Hooters, Tradewinds Bar and Grill, the new Bavaria Haus, and an international food court.
As the name suggests, the center is situated on Biscayne Bay, making it easy for visitors to hop on an open-air bay cruise for a tour of celebrity homes. With its close proximity to PortMiami, it’s a frequent stop for many area cruisers. Customers can enjoy lively outdoor performances from Miami’s best local musicians each day or watch local artists create paintings, sculptures, jewelry and more at Bayside’s Artist’s Square on the weekends. Bayside Marketplace is recognized nationally as a must-see destination and is the No. 1 most visited tourist attraction in the City of Miami, with Miami an impressive No. 6 ranking statewide.
