Wynwood continues its transformation from gritty arts district to commercialized, glitzy "arts" district with the addition of its first bank since the transformation. C1 Bank, a St. Pete-based bank, is opening shop on NE 26th Street and N. Miami Ave. (a plot it bought for a pricey $2.85 million) as their first foray into consumer banking in Miami, and the place doesn't promise to be subtle. Curbed Miami reports that the inside of the bank will include a nightly laser lights show. Yes, there's video.
It's like half that scene from Entrapment, half a regular night at LIV. It's not a regular bank. It's a cool bank.
According to the bank's Facebook, the branch, which officially opened shop on Wednesday, features a giant-ass Andy Warhol original on loan from Gallery Art.
That's all very hip and all, but I'd like to point out that as someone who works in Wynwood, I am now in closer walking distance to a fancy bank with a laser show than I am to a bodega.
