The Little Known Places in Miami – The Magic City

Miami is a paradise on Earth! This seaport city in the US state of Florida has a pleasant climate, ideal for the ones who want to relax on sun-soaked beaches.


At night, the restaurants, bars, and pubs turn into lively party venues. Of course, we know that you are probably aware of the famous attractions, so we have mentioned some of the lesser known ones here.

The Ancient Spanish Monastery

The Ancient Spanish Monument is a hidden gem! Its construction began in 1133 AD and was completed eight years later. Subsequently, it was deconstructed stone by stone and shipped to the US in the form of huge wooden crates. In 1952, the crates were purchased by two entrepreneurs. Over a period of 19 months, it was re-built as a monastery. This magnificent monument with its jaw-dropping past is absolutely not to be missed.


Opened in 2011, this lively bar offers reasonably-priced drinks and foot-tapping music. Entertainment options such as a dart board, pool table, and jukebox ensure lots of fun-packed moments. To save some cash, visit during the happy hours (5 PM – 9 PM). Foxhole is the perfect venue for birthday and special events.

Casabe 305 Bistro

Casabe 305 Bistro presents mouth-watering Venezuela-Caribbean fusion food. It’s a very popular place and even serves weddings, private parties, business/gallery events, and entertainment/TV/film productions as well. The charming ambience coupled with commendable service has been appreciated by past visitors. Casabe 305 Bistro is the brainchild of Diego Vicente Texera – a popular Venezuelan Chef.

The Barnacle

Created in 1891, The Barnacle gives a spectacular view of frontier life during The Era of the Bay, when all travel to and from Miami was solely by boat. Situated on the shore of Biscayne Bay, the building was the residence of Ralph Middleton Munroe, one of Coconut Grove’s most powerful and charismatic pioneers. This is a great hang-out place for friends planning to spend fun times together.
