Clink: Art Basil and The Modern Mojito

 

What? You thought Art Basel was about the art?

The Modern Mojito
The Modern Mojito.
 

By Aurora Rodríguez

Brosia restaurant in the Design District is an artsy, mediterranean hideaway, perfect for a pre-gallery hopping bite or drink, while The Sagamore is a chic SoBe hotel that offers a little culture (their walls are filled with specially curated pieces) along with their swanky pool and outside bar. While both might differ in style and location, they both share a love of art and are eager to celebrate it during Miami's ultimate festival of everything creative: Art Basel.
