The Wharf’s Sister Location At Bayside Will Be Named Pier 5, Open 7 Days A Week

New details of The Wharf’s planned sister property location at Bayside Marketplace have been revealed, according to Miami New Times.

The Wharf Miami is planned to remain open on the Miami River, the paper reported.

The name of the new venue at Bayside will be Pier 5, in honor of the fishing pier which once stood on the site before Bayside was built.

The Wharf’s owners plan to renovate their new location at Bayside to build an open-air entertainment venue. There will be deck games, shaded lounge areas, bars, and entertainment space similar to the location on the Miami River.

The theme will be inspired by the seafood market and sportfishing destination on the site in the 1940s and 50s. It will also be infused with a modern aesthetic and programming “to inspire and celebrate the area’s future.”

Pier 5 is planned to be open 7 days a week.

South Beach is good only to drive up, valet, eat and get the hell out. That way you are not forced to come in contact with the riff-raff. There is nothing to do at Cocowalk. However, you could go to Ariete, Strada, Farinelli 1937, Jaguar, Bombay Darbar, Tigertail + Mary, none of which are in Cocowalk. Brickell is great, same concept as South Beach, drive in, valet, eat, drink, get out. However, Bayside still sucks.

What?
Personally, I enjoy early drinks at Monty’s…walking through the South Beach Marina and along the waterfront of Gov`t Cut with Fisher Island views, then more drinks at Smith & Wollensky”s , then dinner at Joe’s or Milo’s.

That’s just me, and I don’t see riff raff at all…

Yeah, when people hear about South Beach, all they think about is ocean drive.

too bad, with the Skyrise, it would have been a natural magnet of activity from all over.

We all agree that Bayside needs a serious makeover, and this might help it and kick start some more changes. Go for it!

Again this is going to be a great move, and bring new life to bayside. As more people move downtown more people will go to this venue.

Should infuse some new blood in Bayside, wonder how long the original will stay open? The old fish building next door is being demolished as we speak…

Great idea, I love the idea of doing an homage to 1940’s/50’s Miami, but I will wait to see how well they execute it. I’m pessimistic about them truly incorporating unique and distinctive elements into the design. Probably just a typical Miami open-air hangout spot, i.e. put up a bar and roll out some astrotuf.

I’d expect they would at least incorporate the original, light-up “Pier 5” sign that was preserved when they demolished the fishing pier and was later put on display at Bayside. I remember seeing it but am not sure if it is still there. Like everyone else who lives here I have not been to Bayside in many years.

Give them a chance. Let the creators create. It’s easy to burn an idea down, it takes time to build.

Legal online sports gambling plus Indian casino gambling coast to coast has saturated the gambling market. Even pre-pandemic Las Vegas’ growth rate had slowed way down.
