The term florist just doesn't cover this gem, which moved to its current location in time to be covered by construction dust from Miami Shores' downtown renovation. Not only does Flower Bar deliver some of the most stunning arrangements you'll ever see, but also it's an art gallery. And a tearoom. Plus, you'll be able to buy gourmet sweets there pretty soon. Finally, don't forget the greeting cards and fragrances. Started as an art gallery in a seedier neighborhood by a guy named Alex Rodriguez (not the baseball player, you ninny), it moved to its latest spot last fall. The place has garnered some of the classiest jobs in South Beach, providing flowers for the Tides hotel and Table 8 restaurant. Our favorite service is the flower cantina: For $125 a month ($275 for three months), you get a small but hugely creative floral delight. Or if you want to show your lady you really love her, try an orchid a month for three months at $160. And everything is delivered right to your doorstep, so you don't have to drive through the Shores' improvement mess. "That's the way Miami is," says 74-year-old part-time employee Donald Englert. "There will always be construction."
