Hive Wynwood

Dec 9, 2017
56 NW 29th St, Miami

Basel at the yard is always a go to Saturday night spot.  We’re especially excited this year for Locos Por Hippies at The Wynwood Yard.   Check out Miami’s own purveyors of funk, Magic City Hippies, as they bring the house down.  If that set didn’t already have you movin’, Locos por Juana will be closing out the night with their fusion of latin, reggae, funk, and hip-hop or also known as “that island swing.”  Be ready for a show as Locos por Juana has one of the best and most energetic stage performances we’ve experienced.
