ICYMI: Calling All Business Owners in Miami
Business is Miami is blooming, especially in Little Haiti. Little Haiti is quickly becoming one of Miami’s most popular neighborhoods. Sought out by tourists, locals, and business owners. The roots are in its boisterous community. People come from far and wide to to discover all that there is to experience. Here you’ll find a mix of tourist and cultural activities, local bars, gems that have been around for years and new spots are opening up regularly. Situated just north of the Wynwood area it’s a popular place for art as well.
It has so many art galleries and murals that people often refer to it as “next Wynwood”, but Little Haiti is different. Sure the streets are alive with the sound of music into the late hours of the night, but when I talk to travelers who visit they highlight the people first. Commenting that they are some of the friendliest in South Florida. It has more similarities to South Beach geographically because of the sheer amount of land that it occupies.
This past week, local restaurant Sixty 10 hosted “Welcome to Little Haiti”. Artists, business owners, stakeholder representatives, and ladies and gentleman from the Miami social scene came out to enjoy complimentary wine, beer, a full buffet style dinner, and each others company. A live musical performance and a raffle kept everyone entertained until the highlight of the evening which was the unveiling of a new local map.
The map features almost 50 business establishments divided into 3 categories. Food and beverage, points of interests, shopping and art galleries. An adorable drawing of the Miami Free trolley pops up on the streets of the document and they have a bonus section providing information on where you can find murals. The murals are identified by giving credit to the artists, followed by the address of the building where you can find the painting.
The boundary north stops at NW 79th st and by Atlas Meat Free Deli, South at NW 54th, west NW 79th just past interstate 95 to include Naomi's Garden, and east at Biscayne blvd, just after the Magic City Innovation District. Little Haiti is already a popular district for people that are looking for things to do in Miami.
While the map makes everything super organized, and easy to find, there is room for more! If you are a business owner and want to be on the map, or you know one that should, go online to www.visitlittlehaiti.com for more information.
