Though it’s located in the city’s Art Deco District, the area was modeled after the Mediterranean villages of Spain and France and was originally built as a meeting place by Miami Beach’s wealthiest citizens. In addition to being home to many of Miami’s finest, in the late 1920’s it also served as the gambling destination for some of the US most notorious bad men like Al Capone.
There are lots of indoor and outdoor dining and strolling thru this street is like transporting yourself into another country.
Española Way was the first historic district in Miami Beach. It is a mixed commercial/residential neighborhood that offers a different scene in Miami.
