About this listing
The Master Suite of this 4 bedroom house above Lagniappe's scene, sprawls over the garden below with a breakfast nook, large desk, & plenty of seating. It contains a hideaway couch pull-out for 2, a queen, & is double the size of the other rooms.
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. And 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.

Lagniappe is an interesting spot. Location is great, central to both the new Miami (Wynnwood, Edgewater, etc.) and the old (Gables, The Beach, Liberty City, very central). The downstairs wine bar and jazz lounge are stellar, probably the best nightlife vibe Miami has to offer. This is what living as an expat in Paris after the war must have felt like. The vibe here is exceptional. The room was neat and SPACIOUS, can't speak for the other rooms but this one is great. And while you read reviews complaining about the sound, this wasn't an issue for me. This room is as far away from the bandstand as is possible, so you don't get any of the base from downstairs. Windows closed, ear plugs or earbuds in, sound isn't an issue an all. The one thing I'll say about this place, the bathroom is very, very small and there's only one. Despite the very B&B vibe of the house and decor, this really feels more like a hostel (a super clean, farm house chic hostel above a fantastic wine cellar and jazz club). If you go into it with that hostel mindset (and don't freak about the noise), you'll have a great time here.
When we arrived around 6pm the room was not made up, but they made it very quickly so we hardly had to wait. The furniture was pretty old fashioned but the bed was very comfy, good room temperature too. There was a lot of noise form the bar, but it is mentioned a few times before booking and free earplugs available. There were no curtains so it was pretty light and the shared bathroom looked like it wasn't cleaned the two nights we stayed. Also only one toilet for 4 rooms is really not enough. The location was great though right at the arts district and shopping plaza close by. Parking was also not really a problem if you are willing to pay the meter. Not sure if this is what I expected from airbnb though. It seems like more of a commercial room rental but without the comfort of it being commercial.
Excellent stay in Lagniappe. Would definitely stay there again. Friendly hosts and every things was within walking distance.
Ali& Becca's place is very clean and comfortable. I really like this room! The furniture is very nice and interesting. We have a great time there. Ali & Becca contacted us a week in advance to send us all necessary information to the house. They also offered us transportation information from FLL to Miami. We ran into Ali one night and she was extremely warm and nice!
There is wine bar downstairs. It looks like a really nice place. It could be a little loud, but we are fine with it. If you drive, the place is very convenient to move around. It's only 2 miles from Bayside. However, we don't drive and the bus is kind of slow. There are a couple of fast-food restaurants, like McDonald's and Taco Bell several blocks away.
This place is a hidden little gem in Miami. My partner and I had just come off a cruise and were staying in Miami for one extra day. We booked this place, and although it doesn't look like much from the street view or the neighborhood, it's a cozy, quirky little place on top of a wine and jazz bar. The host, Ali was incredibly sweet and personable (we talked for 20 mins upon arrival) and made sure the place was clean and tidy.
The bathrooms and kitchen are shared with other guests in the three bed place, but both are immaculate and we had no issues sharing either.
After a nap, it's a quick roll out of bed to head downstairs to what was some of the best grub we've had all vacay. Both the wine bar atmosphere and the lodging atmosphere were homey, cheery, and blessed with good light.
We had spent the day having fun and it was nice to come to a place that had everything in one building. No transit necessary.
This was my 5th stay at Lagniappe - it's my go-to for an affordable, relaxing staycation. I can't say enough good things about it. Food, wine, live music, and convenience.
no one in miami believed i lived above lagniappe. 'we thought it was only a legend that they had rooms!' 'you're so cool!'
really though, the florida room is big and feels like you're in a comfortable house. i stayed there for 3 weeks. the neighborhood is a 5-min drive to the wynwood walls, 15 minutes to south beach (a $10 uber ride), and 10 minutes from the airport. parking is easy: there are four spots in front of the bar that are only busy from 7pm-2am; if full, you can park at a meter on the street overnight for free.
the tenants were all nice. some would share stories of their travels, others would stay in their rooms. never had an issue sharing the bathroom or kitchen. and if you need anything, ali is so nice and readily available.
this is a bar with live music every night, so it does get loud (something to think about if you're a light sleeper). that said, the place is great and you're only 10 seconds away from a hip spot in miami.
i'll definitely stay at lagniappe again.

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.
