Exploring Little Haiti


A real melting pot of Miami’s communities and cultures is Little Haiti. You will find a thriving cultural center, Haitian bookstores, and authentic Creole cuisine as a great home to Miami’s Haitian diaspora. In recent years, the creative community has also gravitated to Little Haiti, bringing a brand new food hall, hip restaurants, and contemporary art galleries. People can always find something new popping up on every corner, and the city is one of Miami’s most exciting communities. See more here.

The Citadel

In January 2019, Little Haiti hosted Miami’s newest food hall, which is The Citadel. You will find a rooftop lounge that often hosts live musicians, and a smorgasbord of local restaurants with maker-driven pop-up retail people refer to as The finery. You can sample coffee from Vice City Bean, Chinese cuisine from Palmar, tacos from Taquiza, and so much more. See here for information about Experience Allapattah.

Little Haiti Cultural Center

As an arts center and museum, a beacon for the community is the Little Haiti Cultural Center. The center also offers classes from Afro-Caribbean folk dance to ceramics. You can catch live music and dance performances in its 270-seat theater. People can come to the center to immerse themselves in Haitian culture through plenty of dancing, hand-crafted art, creole cooking, and live music; you can come for Sounds of Little Haiti every first Friday of the month.
