Coconut Grove
Village West

  Bohemia On The Bay  

Set sail or sit down to dinner in this bayside village.

Originally settled in the 1800s, Coconut Grove remains a charming, bayside village within the urban dynamic of Miami. The Grove, as it's commonly called, is the oldest continuously inhabited neighborhood of Miami.

The pedestrian friendly village center in Coconut Grove is filled with sidewalk cafes, galleries and boutiques. The small bohemian village feel is countered by recognizable chain restaurants, but small local cafes, college bars and independent boutiques still line the streets. Pull up a chair outside, watch the assortment of shoppers, bar-hoppers, students and tourists stroll the streets and enjoy the laid-back ambience.

Coconut Grove's relaxed atmosphere extends into the many open-air bay front parks in the area, including Peacock Park, Kennedy Park, The Barnacle Historic State Park and more. Coconut Grove is also home to many popular annual events.

The Village West neighborhood in Coconut Grove is the present day historic enclave of the Bahamian and African-American descendants of the early settlers of Coconut Grove. Their presence as the first black community on the South Florida mainland began here in the late 1870s when Blacks primarily from the Bahamas came via Key West to work at the Peacock Inn.

For more information, be sure to visit the Coconut Grove Business Improvement District.

Coconut Grove

If you’re not laid back on arrival, you will be soon. Meet local musician Ominé and she’ll tell you Miami’s oldest neighborhood has been carving its own free-thinking path since the Bahamians arrived in the late 1800s. She’ll have you believing quirky and bohemian are normal, and introduce you to our resident peacocks, parrots, and artists. Of course, if you prefer to wander aimlessly through the galleries, banyan-shaded bistros, waterfront parks, and unique-to-us boutiques, we’re cool with that – we’ll be doing the same thing.
