CocoWalk is an open-air entertainment complex situated in an attractive Mediterranean style village in Coconut Grove, south of downtown Miami on Biscayne Bay. CocoWalk has funky cafes, restaurants, nightlife, specialty shops, and festivals, live music, and other activities.

CocoWalk has a cool inviting casual architecture and atmosphere that attracts visitors and locals. It has a brick sidewalks and a brick courtyard to invite and welcome you. The architecture is accented by reproduction gas street lamps, perfectly placed palm trees, and nice colors everywhere. The grounds are nice to look at, and there are many terraces and other vantage points to enjoy CocoWalk and the perfect weather.

CocoWalk has a few dozen shops (several were vacant during our visit) that have souvenirs, apparel, gifts, and other specialty items. Some of the shops are from well known chains like Banana Republic, B. Dalton Books, Express, Gap and Victoria’s Secret. You can get cigars, gelato, T-shirts, souvenirs, and more from the non-chain stores. There is also a large multi-screen movie theater at CocoWalk.

To me, shopping is not the attraction to CocoWalk at all. CocoWalk is arranged around a brick courtyard, where there is live music, and alfresco dining and cafes. Cafe Med is an outdoor cafe, restaurant, and bar that provides the focal point of the CocoWalk courtyard. CocoWalk also has Cafe Tu Tu Tango, and a Nicaraguan steakhouse called Los Ranchos. There is a Hooters restaurant and Fat Tuesdays bar on the upper level.

CocoWalk has a nice mix of shops, entertainment, restaurants, and inviting cafes and bars. It is a nice spend to spend an afternoon or evening. CocoWalk shops are open Sunday through Thursday from 11am to 10pm (midnight on Friday and Saturday). The restaurants and bars of CocoWalk are open until 2am. While you are at CocoWalk, visit the Streets of Mayfair next door.

CocoWalk is located at 3015 Grand Avenue in Coconut Grove on Biscayne Bay. To get there, take Biscayne Boulevard (US-1) south of Miami Beach to Coconut Grove. Turn left at SW 27th Avenue, and go to South Bayshore Drive and turn right. Look for Grand Avenue and turn left. CocoWalk and its parking garage (fee) entrance will be on your right.
