Maybe the books on Circa 28's shelves aren't for reading (The Y2K Survival Guide and Richard Nixon and His America are among the titles that occupy the diamond-patterned bookshelves.) But from the vintage neon sign outside to the stylishly raw interior, Circa 28's ambitions are in sync with its Wynwood surroundings. Velvet chairs, dim lighting, and ornate chandeliers are the decor on the first floor, where the local art crowd sips cocktails and sways to an eclectic mix of music. During the course of two glasses of wine one night, the bartender/DJ played everything from Blur and the White Stripes to David Bowie, Michael Jackson, and the Cure. Upstairs is a bona fide dance floor, complete with disco ball and small stage, an intimate setting that has made Circa 28 the clandestine destination for afterparties and impromptu shows when bands like the Brazilian Girls and the Rapture are in town. Drinks should be cheaper ($10 for a Belvedere martini; $8 for a glass of Malbec) but it's in a happening neighborhood. For those who work and play among the dark warehouses and weed-choked boulevards of the area, the place is priceless.

Circa 28 is not the best of Miami, I've had the worst experience there and many of my friends are even scared of visiting the place, I saw rats and cockroaches on my visit to the place. They treat people like crap. Don't dare parking around Circa or you may get your car jacked.

Do not recommend anyone this place.
