Española Way, one of the most historic lanes on Miami Beach, reopened last month after the completion of the City of Miami Beach’s $2.5 million restoration project. Originally built in the 1920s as an artists’ colony that offered a creative vibe mimicking that of Greenwich Village in New York and Montmartre in Paris, this pedestrian-only street now features new Roman decorative pavers and sidewalks, utilities, landscaping, and pedestrian lighting. Originally designed to resemble a Spanish village with large overhangs, thick stucco walls and glazed tile-painted signs, this picturesque street is now a hub for dining, drinking, shopping, and people-watching.

The new Española Way will host weekly and monthly events such as a Saturday Bazaar, Sunday’s Sweat Sessions, Noche de Coche, and Noche de Encuentros.

Having undergone a multi-million dollar renovation of its own, El Paseo Hotel also reopened featuring five 3-story villas connected through alleys and courtyards. The property, originally built in 1925 as an apartment building, offers elements of Spanish, Moroccan, Italian, and French architecture, with rooms offering views of Española Way and some even featuring a full-service kitchen, which gives your clients a true Miami pied-a-terre experience.

Your social media-loving clients can head to Española Way with their Spectacles and share their adventures with family and friends back home.
