History and heritage still echo through The Grove, as you discover when strolling beside the bay at Peacock Park; or by visiting Ralph Munroe’s former home The Barnacle, which dates back to 1891.
Before touring The Barnacle — one of the few places where you can still see the dense tropical hardwood hammock that used to cover much of coastal Miami — pick up cocktail, a burger or several scoops of gelato at these Coconut Grove spots:
1. Bianco Gelato
Bianco Gelato is said to have authentic-from-Italy recipes for their creamy scoops.
2. Monty’s Raw Bar and Restaurant
Monty’s Raw Bar and Restaurant, with its great view, is a popular happy hour spot.
3. Sandbar Sports Grill
Sandbar Sports Grill has good drink specials and great tacos and attracts lots of people out on the town.
4. Tavern in the Grove
Tavern in the Grove is popular with young locals, particularly the college crowd.
