I don’t know about night clubs, but they need more restaurants, side walk cafes, and a couple of hotels to spice things up.

“Night club crowd would trash the place.”

Funny how they light this place up at night to attract people as if this was some happening place after sundown only for people to find out, “I’ve been conned!”

You don’t need night clubs, but some nice late night bars, would help evolve the area from shop n leave to stay and enjoy

I really don’t think that’s remotely their aim. Miami has several other areas known for its nightlife. Not everything in that city has to be a party nor does it have to be geared to the 20 to 35 year old demographic, either. The district certainly needs more activity/vitality but I don’t think nightclubs are the answer. It definitely needs a hospitality component along with a few more restaurants with sidewalk service. Books and Books should consider opening up a location there. A small jazz club would work well, too, I think and something akin to a prohibition era speakeasy would be cool. I’m just thinking out loud and throwing in my 2 cents.

Ditto. An annex of the Wolfsonian would be great too. Perhaps featuring just one era. They have a ton of stuff in storage and this could serve to publicize the other museums.

Gloria Estefan’s “Estefan’s Kitchen” has free music and dancing out front on the Palm Court. http://bit.ly/2GbYxov

And they promote this nightlife in Miami proudly. Reality is, the real nightlife or clubbing is mostly on Miami Beach. Might as well take advantage of the opportunity and put some real nightlife in the Design District.

I struggle to understand why Design Destruct gets so much attention. Is literally three lots of uber-rich shops and a couple of coffee shops. The place is most of the time empty and there is nothing fun to do there except of handbags that most of the folks are unlikely to buy in their lifetimes. So many other interesting places in Miami-Dade that you guys don’t write about. And in this article in particular…what are the news?!? A Christmas’s tree and some lights? As if there are (again) plenty of other place around with the same. Best, Enrique

Yeah, “there is nothing fun to do there except of handbags” is also spot on.

Lol most of Miami is just places and things people can’t afford. Just put that new Maserati on your credit card and you’ll feel better about all your life choices!

Why do that when I can hop on a free Trolley?

Besides the space’s design and architecture which set it apart from the rest of SoFla, it has the only known existing Bucky Fuller dome done in Plexiglass by the genius himself. Robbins saved and restored it and now uses it as a skylight over the atrium to the underground garage. You can see part of it in the top picture. Plus, the place has some great sculptural pieces scattered about. So, I guess it depends on what you mean by “nothing to do.” Although I can’t afford to shop there, I get jazzed over the art and design of the spaces.

Such as what? Some ugly new outdoor mall in Doral?
