The Downtown Miami Area is made up of several parts; the Brickell area, an international banking hub as well as a metropolitan residential community of tall buildings, hip bars and restaurants, and an internationally diverse group of residents; Omni, a blend of residential, commercial and hotels including the magnificent Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts; Park West, the Museum Park area; and the Miami Jewelry District.
