The Doral Yard was the perfect outdoor setting for Bloom 2022! It is a 20,000 square foot “community gathering space designed to foster local entrepreneurship and culture.” With tropical murals surrounding the space, fresh greenery everywhere and planes flying overhead, The Backyard at The Doral Yard felt quintessential Miami!
