Lagniappe House, Midtown

by jem614

If the draw of jazzy music pulls you in, Lagniappe House in Midtown, Miami is the place to be.  Great lighting, relaxed atmosphere, good wine and cheese, all make for a great night out.

Google translates “Lagniappe” as something given as a bonus or extra gift.  This place lives up to it’s meaning.  Not only do they have a great little wine house inside but the backyard is a huge open space with tables enough for large crowds.  If you’re looking for something loud and intimate, stay inside for the music.

Lagniappe is a “serve yourself” house.  There is a wine bar where you can order from a variety of wines and then out back is the cheese course to order for your table.  You can order a large tray or a single serving that includes bread and fig jam. You pick out your cheese from the fridge and then they create your plate behind the counter.  Service is fairly quick even while busy.

But wait, there’s more!! Lagniappe House also doubles as a sort of “bed & breakfast” with New Orleans style bedrooms upstairs to rent for the night.  I can just imagine falling asleep to the jazz music as it floats up from the street.  The prices are actually quite good for midtown as well.

This place does get busy, especially if a popular band is playing so get there early if you want to sit.  We’re discovering more and more amazing hidden places in and around Miami/Ft. Lauderdale and can’t wait to try some more.  Get out and enjoy your city and let us know what special places you have found!
