After 11 years, popular South Beach restaurant, Juvia, will relocate to the Miami World Center

Juvia, the esteemed Miami Beach rooftop restaurant, is set to find a new home at Miami Worldcenter. This move comes on the heels of its sudden closure last August. Its previous location atop 1111 Lincoln Road, where it was stationed for 11 years, saw the eatery embroiled in a legal dispute over rent with its landlord, 1111 Lincoln LLC. The conflict ended with a final judgment in favor of the landlord on August 21.

Jonas Millán, co-founder of the Juvia Group, revealed the restaurant's forthcoming location on Miami Worldcenter's Block H's 12th floor, located at 652 N.E. Second Ave. Slated for launch by the close of next year, this venue will span 8,769 square feet indoors complemented by a 7,100-square-foot exterior patio. It's projected to accommodate a team of 160, a roster including chefs, managers, servers, and more. According to Millán, the new space surpasses its predecessor by 60% in size and boasts spectacular views. On a recent visit, Millán was captivated by the bay's sunset, the under-construction Signature Bridge, cruise ships, and the Miami Heat arena.


This relocation places Juvia in the heart of a $6 billion, 27-acre development, masterminded by Arthur Falcone, Nitin Motwani, and the Los Angeles-based CIM Group. Miami Worldcenter already houses notable residential projects like the Paramount Miami Worldcenter condominium and the Bezel Miami luxury rental tower, with more developments in the pipeline. The culinary scene there also thrives with three outlets by Chef Michael Beltran's Ariete Hospitality Group and a slew of upcoming restaurants.

Expressing his optimism, Millán emphasized Miami's evolving landscape, "Miami is evolving beyond its coastal identity, with the city's heartbeat now pulsating in the mainland." His future endeavors also encompass the launch of a Sushi Garage outlet at Bayside Marketplace and another Juvia establishment in Hallandale Beach.


The restaurant boom in South Florida was notably amplified during the pandemic as businesses sought refuge from Covid-imposed restrictions. This surge, combined with the flourishing tourism sector and the influx of affluent households, propelled retail rental rates. Nevertheless, recent data from Colliers indicates a slight downturn in Miami's retail market, with a drop in the average rent in Miami-Dade County in the recent quarter.
