About this listing
Four bedroom apartment above Lagniappe, Miami's local jazz scene and wine garden.
Lagniappe House is a French vintage inspired shared living guest house above Lagniappe, a New Orleans style backyard wine garden and jazz bar.
Upstairs, we invite you to be our guest at Lagniappe House. Guests can choose to stay from a night to serval months. Choose from our three double occupancy rooms or one garden room suite. All amenities are included with free wifi, large fully equipped kitchen, front reading room with desk and internet access, and full shared bath. Each of the four rooms is rented out separately with comfortable vintage furnishings and fresh linens and towels, with keys to the house and your individual room.
Below we welcome you to Lagniappe, our laid back backyard style wine garden and jazz bar. were you can grab a bottle of reasonably priced boutique wine or craft beer, some cheese and charcuterie from the cooler for us to plate or something from the outdoor grill, and chill with us for some great live jazz, folk, funk and blues.
We are situated in the corner of Midtown which has become a central hub to some cool Miami cultural and culinary spots. We are in the north corner of the Wynwood Arts District, an entire warehouse district's walls converted into urban mural art and interiors into galleries and hipster dives. (Come the second Saturday night of the month for art walk to see it in full fledge)
Come December, Art Basel's main satellite tents, Scope, Red Dot, Art Asia, and Art Miami set up there tents directly across the street. A few blocks north is the Miami Design District, with top interior and fashion deign showrooms and acclaimed culinary dining. Downtown Miami is a few miles south and the beaches are just across the causeway.
We invite you to stay with us:)
Come downstairs and join us at Lagniappe in the evenings for live music, boutique wine and craft beer, pick your own cheese and charcuterie plates and dinner and the grill. Enjoy yourself inside with live jazz, blues, french gypsy and bluegrass bands, or outside in our garden. It's the feeling of a backyard house party right in the middle of the city.
Care to venture outside our garden walls? Miami's cultural heart is right outside our door. We are nestled between the Miami Design District, with some of the city's best dinning and shopping, and the Wynwood arts district, with blocks and blocks of beautiful graffiti murals, galleries, coffee houses and gastro pubs. To hit the beach it's a straight shot just over the causeway with direct bus lines running every half hour.
Interaction with Guests
Guests will have their own set of keys available by lockbox outside the door, giving you independence to check in at any time. The host, ali, frequents Lagniappe often in which you may or may not ever run into her.
Just North of us is considered the Design District which is full of high-end commercial and art galleries and conveniant mid-town shopping.
The Southwest is a lower income area surrounding Wynwood, the popular mural walls and avant guarde art district. Their are so many new concept restaurants all off of NW 2nd Ave. I recommend our friend's amazing Italian/Israli Bakery, who goes by Zac the Baker.
If you look up neighborhoods on AIRBNB, you'll find pictures of these areas... they may even have photos for Buena Vista, the friendly old neighborhood in the North. A walk to their French Bakery: Bueno Vista Deli is about 10 blocks north on the same street you'll be on, NE 2nd Ave, and the mushroom/goat cheese quiche is to die for!
Shuttles run from both FLL and MIA Airports to personal locations. Uber car rentals have become more popular and easier to locate than taxis.
Bus 202 travels to and from the Miami Airport.
Bus J and 150 go to the beach.
Buses 9 & 10 pick up in front of our street and Buses 3, 16, & 95 run along Biscayne, one street over. All of these routes can be found by searching MetroMover in Miami.
What I recommend the most is getting around by bike.
All of our neighborhoods are easiest to explore on bike. The Venetian Causeway on 15th Street will take you to the beach, crossing a beautiful pedestrian-friendly bridge over the Bay of Biscayne. Parking is a cinch. You can travel at your leisure and enjoy the fresh air.
The nearest bike rental is on 28th Street and Biscayne.
Other Things to Note
If you're a light sleeper, feel free to bring ear plugs as the downstair's wine bar features live music between 9pm - 12am and remains open till 2am.
There is an ashtray on our outside landing. Please be mindful of others and of course, no smoking inside.
Common courtesy is expected in a shared home. Be mindful of cleaning up after yourself. Wash dishes throughly and after showering, please wipe the area clean with your bathmat and hang it up or deposit it in the hallway basket.
Hooks are in every room to encourage drying and enviromental thrift of reuse of towels.
Maps, sunscreens, and an umbrella can be found on the Living Room desk. Their is a beach umbrella leaning behind the kitchen door. Feel free to use what you can and put the rest back accordingly.
Feedback or concerns are always welcome!
Please honor others as you wish to be honored.
Nice hosts, slow response time though, central location, room clean and tidy, good facilities (kitchen to use, fridge with supplies)
The place was exactly as advertised - adorable and comfortable. We were late arriving due to our flight, but Ali and Becca's check in process is so seamless that we were easily able to get in to our room. At first, the building struck us as a bit noisy, but the music was great and didn't last for super long periods of time. I would highly recommend this place!
Absolutely one of my favorite spots to stay when I'm in the area. I'm a fan of the location, cleanliness of the facilities and the general laid-back feel of the house.
The location is perfect to reach anywhere in Miami, the room looks exactly as they described and very cozy, and the bar is super nice, with a very cool environment.
Ali and Becca were very helpful. I really liked the neighborhood. Close to downtown and Wynwood.
This apartment was awesome. Really clean the other tenants were very quiet. The apartment is on top of a bar so you have to expect noise until 2am. But that wasn't a problem for me. I would highly recommend this place.
Was my second time staying and the experience was just as amazing as the first! Great location and very clean. Ali is wonderful! Highly recommend :)

About the Host, Ali & Becca
BECCA, the designer/founder/owner:
David (founder of Lagniappe) and I, both parents, meet through a homeschool co-op group we founded for our children, on an urban organic farm where my daughter and I now live. We have spent the last two years, along with establishing and educating in our little earth schooling tribe, lovingly and passionately co-creating David's Lagniappe wine bar and live music garden and my Lagniappe House hostel. It has been such a pleasure having you all as our guests over the last year since we've been open and we thank you for your help in making it such a success.
ALI, the partner/manager/coresponder:
Alison, a friend from the farm and a teacher at the school co-op is the newest addition to the Lagniappe house. She can be seen anywhere between 12-3 each day as she prepares the rooms. Feel free to ask her questions or leave generous tips. She’s fascinated with holistic health, re-purposing waste, alternative resources, exploratory education, communication, the arts, and dAnCE!
