Shopping Blitz: Miami

Travel Tips

We’re wrapping up our holiday shopping series about stores near Kimpton hotels with a real hot spot: Miami.

The Hotel:
EPIC Hotel

The Neighborhood:

Trade the beach for the bustle of Brickell Avenue and Flagler Street, a lively crossroads near the hotel. There you’ll find tri-level department store La Epoca, a Miami icon since 1965 that sells everything from Ben Sherman button-downs to Juicy Couture swimwear.

A short walk away at The Shops at Mary Brickell Village, Enjabonarte pedals all-natural soaps made from Spanish olive oil (look for unusual scents like chocolate mint and licorice). Keep the aromatherapy theme going at Flossie’s, selling soul-soothing crystals, customized oils, and incense.

If there’s somebody you really want to dazzle, make your way to the massive Seybold building, the city’s go-to spot for jewelry.

With these presents in hand, your holiday is sure to be … well, epic.
