Espanola Way, Miami

Espanola Way, Miami

Española Way is a charming pedestrian area between 14th and 15th Street in Miami Beach, stretching from Washington Avenue to the western corners of Drexel Avenue. Designed in Mediterranean Revival style, featuring Spanish colonial architecture, Española Way lives up to its name and, in essence, represents a quaint, picturesque Spanish-inspired village with open-air streets lined with restaurants and cafes that you can walk along and enjoy people-watching, or just sit and grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, or have some lunch with your friends or dinner with your partner in a romantic setting. The area is absolutely beautiful during the day and would make a lovely place for a stroll under the warm Miami sunshine or at night when the streets resemble little twinkling strings of cafe lights.

In May 2017, Española Way underwent a $2.5 million revitalization, turning into a pedestrian-only zone. Now that its renaissance is in full swing, Española Way lives out the intentions of those who built it almost a century ago as a festive street where the locals and travelers can congregate and mingle.

Why you should visit:
Since the turn of the century, Española has been the home to one of South Beach's most iconic cafes, A La Folie. Among other homey delights of French cuisine locally hard-to-find, this bohemian hideaway serves tartiflette, a gooey potato-and-onion gratin dotted with cubes of fatty bacon and layered with deliciously pungent Reblochon cheese from the Alps.
If you're in for some other forms of passing time away than drinking and dining, feel free to check out Española for free yoga or salsa classes on Saturday mornings and Thursday nights respectively, or come to enjoy the outdoor flamenco shows on Friday nights.
