A Day in Overtown: Where to Visit, Eat, Stay,and Entertain

Places to visit, where to eat, where to stay, entertainment, and the annual not to be missed event:  here’s your guide for a day exploring Overtown, one of Miami’s most historic areas. There’s no better neighborhood to find authentic soul food or experience an amateur night showcase that’s modeled after the historic Apollo Theater’s long-running one in New York City. And rivaling Wynwood’s famous street murals are those of the late artist Purvis Young, born in Overtown. The building façades and architecture harken back to the early 1900s when black performers played, ate and stayed here. A new B & B, too, a bargain at rates starting at $100 a night.

Nu Deco Ensemble, A Gem

When a good friend told me about Nu Deco Ensemble I had thought it was about contemporary music as in atonal, lacking in melodic verses (think Philip Glass). Not my thing. Was I ever wrong. True, as they say, it has classically trained musicians for the most part, but traditional classical music is part of the repertoire that also blends it with all or a combo of pop, jazz, and big band sounds. Sometimes works include art and media collaborations.  The conductor is cool, young, and exudes enthusiasm. The audience of all ages was loving it as did I. We went once, enjoyed it so much, that the next day booked tickets for the next concert, a Global Cuba Fest.

It’s billed as an all-day dining, shopping and entertainment destination in Miami’s historic Little River District. Check out some of the delicious eats at its food hall.
