The Luxurious Evolution of Miami's Design District and Wynwood

The Influx of New Luxury Brands Into Miami's Design District and Wynwood Neighborhoods Has Caught the Attention of the Affluent All Around the World

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - July 03, 2013) -  A tectonic shift is taking place in the Design District and Wynwood that is being felt nationally and internationally. Miami has always been a hot spot for tourists from around the world but the focus has shifted to these two adjacent neighborhoods because of elite luxury brands like Hermes, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Pucci and Ducati calling it their new home. Wynwood has become a hotbed for art galleries, film studios and a favorite of the understated affluent tourist looking for a local experience and vibe amongst the cool kids.

Just as in New York City, everyone starts their evening in Midtown but then finishes the night in SOHO and the meatpacking district. The same trend is happening in Miami, where your evening starts in the Design District and ends in Wynwood. The newest trendsetting hot-spot leading this movement is The Social Lubricant Lounge, known simply as TSL Lounge and has found its niche by catering to the high end Wynwood crowd. This unpretentiously cool lounge with a subtly sexy yet positive vibe has caught the attention of the local hipster, investor, artists and neighbors by offering an oasis in the heart of Wynwood.

"Alcohol is the social lubricant of social intercourse and makes it easier to interact with new people you don't know. Here at TSL we offer our guests a full evening of fun where you can enjoy dinner at The Butcher Shop and Beer Garden and then slide into TSL Lounge to continue your evening into the wee hours of the morning," says Mark Dorfman, Managing Partner of TSL Lounge.

They say that timing is everything and the opening of TSL lounge is a perfect glimpse into the future of Wynwood's evolution. This shift is all the more confirmed by Chanel's recent purchase in the Design District and almost a city block by Samuel Adams in Wynwood. More and More big names are being added to the roster and the locals have known this for a long time, but it is only recently that the rest of the world is taking notice. TSL Lounge has positioned itself in that sweet spot where they are a draw for the influx of this new international crowd that wants to be a part of the locals and step away from the tourist traps.

You can join this unique vibe at TSL Lounge throughout the week and dine next door at The Butcher Shop and Beer Garden at their grand opening July 4th weekend located 167 NW 23 ST Miami, Fl 33127 (786)409-2241
