Bal Harbour Pop-Up Shops 

Check out our favorite new brunch and high tea spot. Bal Harbour Shops introduces The Whitman, a new restaurant concept specially designed for the Bal Harbour Shops Access Pop-up. Paying homage to the past, The Whitman name draws inspiration from The Whitman by The Sea– a luxury Miami Beach hotel owned by the Whitman family in the 1940s. This pop-up left Miami and headed to Miramar Beach and the 30A for the summer!
