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 there own set of keys available by lockbox outside the door, giving you independence to check in at any time.
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.

This was our first stay through airbnb. We arrived in the afternoon and was greeted by Ali that provided us with our keys and gave us a great deal of information about Miami. The jazz club played great music that put us to sleep every night, the club is a great place to just have a beer or wine and just relax. I highly recommend a stay here, it's really close to the beach (with a car) and a nice area to walk about with a lot of great art.
Our stay was nice! The house is as-described: the rooms are really cute, the kitchen was nice and big, and the space is loud (but with good music) from late evening until early morning hours. Ali was great and helped us deal with AirBnB headaches. Our only was that the mattress was very soft.
I had a wonderful stay and really enjoyed the room. The music downstairs was a fun addition. Thanks!
This was a wonderful spot for my trip to Miami! The location to the port of Miami and American Airlines arena is wonderful and a very affordable trip to both places as well as the beach. The whole place was awesome! No complaints.
Other reviews totally accurate. Loud until 2am, but we expected it so was fine. Cute and comfortable. Nice big kitchen. Though the bathroom situation wasn't awesome - one teensy bathroom for what I think was 8 people. It was always wet and out of toilet paper once. You get what you pay for :) The price was right! Jazz bar downstairs is lovely.
Nous n'avons pas vu Becca à aucun moment de notre séjour de 4 jours. Personne n'était là pour nous accueillir et nous avons attendu tout l'après-midi pour que quelqu'un nous ouvre enfin. Aucune réponse à mes coups de téléphone ou mail. Chambre très très bruyante (musique à fond jusqu'à 2h du matin... et qui recommence à 7h le dimanche matin...) Salle de bain sale. Frigo rempli de vieilles victuailles... extrêmement déçus!!
We did not see Becca at no time of our stay of 4 days. Nobody was there to welcome us and we waited all afternoon long so that somebody opens us finally. No answer to my phone calls or e-mail. Very very noisy room (music completely till 2 am in the morning and which begins again at 7 am on Sundays mornings) dirty bathroom. Refrigerator filled with old provisions... extremely disappointed!!
Generally speaking it's a really good place with comfortable bed and good environment, even we haven't receive Becca's mail about how to check in. Becca is very kind and leaved a lot of bows, pots and food for us in the kitchen. The only problem is the room is near the bar, so it is a little noisy at night.

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 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!
