Shop – Miami

From a killer ice cream store to an old-fashioned warren of a bookstore, Miami’s best places to drop some dough

Aubi & Ramsa 

The Design District is Miami’s main high-end shopping destination: Prada, Margiela, and Saint Laurent all have stores there. But the real draw is Aubi & Ramsa, a tiny ice-cream store that is squarely aimed at adults with its delicious range of liquor-infused ice-creams and sorbets. Try its passion fruit sorbet that’s made with George Clooney’s Casamigos tequila, or the Highland Truffle, a combination of Belgian chocolate and a dram or two of Macallan 12yrs.

Buena Vista Deli  

Despite its name, there is nothing Cuban about this French-Jewish owned and operated bakery. The pastry chef’s creations are off the charts and even New Yorkers agree the croissants are the best this side of the Atlantic.

Books and Books (image above)

A true old-fashioned bookstore, you could lose a day here creaking over the hardwood floors and wandering the warren of rooms (one of which is wholly dedicated to art books). Take your new books to the outdoor courtyard patio and bar, or attend one of the store’s nightly readings and literary events. While you’re in Miami, be sure to read Bubble in the Sun by Christopher Knowlton – it tells of the Florida property bubble of the 1920s which led to the Great Depression.
