Little Havana

  A Vibrant Cuban Neighborhood  

Say “hola” to a slice of Cuban culture relocated to Miami.

Hispanic culture permeates everything in Little Havana - colorful murals, monuments to heroes past and present, elderly men playing dominoes as they discuss politics and cigar rollers deep at work amidst Little Havana's ever-present aroma of Cuban coffee. These scenes of daily life in Little Havana play out amidst a backdrop of pulsating traditional Cuban and Afro-Cuban music, storefronts, unique art galleries and quaint typical restaurants.

Little Havana landmarks include: Calle Ocho, the main drag of Little Havana, where fruit stands, art galleries, Cuban restaurants and cigar shops line the avenue and Walkway of the Stars, which honors Latin American celebrities including Gloria Estefan and Celia Cruz. At Domino Park, there are daily heated daily domino games among practiced locals. Take a break and grab a show at Tower Theater, a restored Art Deco theater and cultural venue. .

On the last Friday of each month, Little Havana hosts Viernes Culturales, or Cultural Fridays, a monthly gallery night showcasing the cultural arts scene of the neighborhood. Little Havana offers a taste of multicultural Miami at its best.

Insider's Guide

Little Havana

Little Havana

Grab a guayabera, let Jose guide you down Calle Ocho, and you’ll get more than a taste of Cuba. Between the rhythms of the neighborhood and Jose’s favorite haunts, he’ll have you dancing down the sidewalk, getting wired on afternoon cafecitos, watching the domino players in Domino Park, maybe even lighting up a hand-rolled cigar. Of course, knowing Jose, he’ll also introduce you to a frutería, and you can count on this, he’ll have you loving black beans, rice, and plantain – a tradition as Cuban as a Havana itself.
