Combine a kitschy blend of URBAN sophistication and vintage RURAL vibes with PREMIUM Miami shopping in the MiMo District of Magic City's Upper East Side, a 27-block collection of single-family communities lining Biscayne Bay!

Sitting on the sparkling waters of Biscayne Bay is the upscale community of the Upper East Side, nestled north of Edgewater, east of Little Haiti, and south of the village of Miami Shores, offering three distinct residential neighborhoods, Belle Meade, Bay Point, and Morningside. 

At the Upper East Side, you'll find a unique Miami flavor leaning towards a more VINTAGE appealevident in its plethora of umbrella-blanketed cafés spilling onto the sidewalks, charming boutiques, consignment stores, and trendy eateries, housed inside restored retro-style structures, a.k.a the "MiMo Biscayne Boulevard Historic District," alongside a front-seat to Miami's premium shopping scene, both in and around its perimeter!

So, get ready to pair the Upper East Side's dose of VINTAGE charm with an UNFORGETTABLE shopping experience— it'll be too "ONE-OF-A-KIND" to forget!

Here are the top five shopping spots in the Upper East Side.

1) Miami Ironside

7580 NE 4th Ct, Miami, FL 33138

Commence your UNFORGETTABLE Upper East Side splurge by diving into the brimming retail scene of Miami Ironside, a massive collection of shopping, dining, and entertainment options in the heart of the MiMo District!

Get your feet ready for tons of walking as you explore Ironside's generous offering of over 60 shops, centers, and services made up of new and classic retailers, design showrooms, beauty salons, local shops, art studios, cafes, playrooms, galleries, and wellness centers, promising a well-rounded lifestyle experience!

Of course, that's not the only draw that sets this six-block district apart!

Unbeknownst to many, Ironside doubles as a paradise of nature!

A park-like enclave boasting the largest congregation of Rainbow Eucalyptus trees alongside Poincianas, Live Oaks, Coconut Palms, Climbing Jasmine, Creeping Fig, and multi-colored Bougainville, Ironside pairs your shopping with lush nature, making it an experience too irresistible to dismiss!

Shop 'til you drop while immersing in Ironside's self-sustaining natural habitat for bees and butterflies — it's the dreamy scene you need to get you spending like there's no tomorrow!

2) Midpoint

Need a break from Miami's upscale malls and luxury finds?

Welcome a more relaxed, low-key shopping scene at the Upper East Side's Midpoint, one of Miami's first suburban shopping centers!

Offering 347,000 square feet of mixed-use space, the lifestyle enclave of Midpoint, formerly known as Biscayne Plaza, is situated on 18 acres of land, anchored by familiar retail brands like DD's Discounts, Goodwill, Payless, CVS Pharmac, and Cool Js!

Aside from retail splurging, you can also get your grocery shopping done thanks to Midpoint's famous  Sabor Tropical Supermarket, a must-visit if you're cooking a new Latin dish at home *chef's kiss*!

And before you leave, be sure to grab a bite at any of Midpoint's modest selection of restaurants, including diner faves like Subway and Domino's!

3) MiMo Biscayne Boulevard Historic District 

East and West of Biscayne Boulevard, between N.E. 50th and N.E. 77th Streets

Uncover more of the Upper East Side's "Old Miami" charm by visiting the MiMo Biscayne Boulevard Historic District, a must-visit tourist spot for a dose of history, delicious eats, and a bit of side-shopping!

A Miami gem encompassing the buildings situated at the East and West of Biscayne Boulevard, lying between NE 50th and NE 77th Streets, the MiMo Biscayne Boulevard Historic District is celebrated for its wealth of 1950s-era motels, many of which have been renovated and rehabilitated for adaptive use by current owners, showcasing the stunning characteristics of Mid-Century Modern (MiMo) architecture, many historic photographs, and much more!

Of course, that's not all you'll find at this happening avenue!

At the MiMo Biscayne Boulevard Historic District, you can shop from a considerable amount of indie boutiques and up-and-coming fashion shops alongside vintage motels and buildings!

Truly, a bustling district you can't miss for a front seat to the Upper East Side's irresistible allure!

4) Upper Buena Vista 

184 NE 50th Terrace, Miami, FL 33137

Treat yourself to a unique shopping escapade by visiting Buena Vista's charming tropical shopping enclave, the Upper Buena Vista, where modest and unique retail options lie, only a 5-minute drive from the Upper East Side!

Known as one of Buena Vista's top tourist spots, Upper Buena Vista is a MAGICAL destination for all your shopping, dining, and entertainment needs, often compared to a reimagined town square of a Caribbean resort village.

Needless to say, this calming shopping sanctuary is NOT your run-of-the-mill shopping center — far from it!

One of Upper Buena Vista's distinct features is its small-sized shops, appropriately called "micro boutiques" and "petite boutiques," ranging from 250- 500 square feet, which look like "tiny houses" of fashion, filled with eclectic local and global offerings, most you won't find anywhere else!

Kathe Cuervo, The House of Findings, Clara Ochoa, and more — these rising brands promise to change your style and your LIVES!

You'll also find several food concepts in Upper Buena Vista, so when hunger calls, finding your NEXT food spot won't need effort!

All that with a fairytale-like ambiance to boot?

Upper Buena Vista needs no "hard-selling!"

5) Miami Design District 

140 NE 39th St., Miami, FL 33137

Dive straight into Miami's revered PREMIUM shopping experience by INDULGING in LUXURY at the 18-block community of the Miami Design District, an upscale lifestyle MECCA with unmatched access to world-class anything and EVERYTHING, only a 7-minute drive from the Upper East Side!

Aside from lavish shopping, the Miami Design District boasts a massive lineup of entertainment options, ranging from dining to artsy and ICONIC eye candies and heart-pumping events, so after splurging, stay awhile and enjoy the bustling scene!

That's boutique after boutique, a hot meal after another, and one jaw-dropping art display to the next, all within 2,699,095 square feet of space — I'm pretty sure the Miami Design District needs no EXPLANATION!
