Miami - Little Havana & Calle Ocho

Miami Calle Ocho

Like it or not, we all have heard a Pitbull song. Same as DJ Khaled calls for "we the best music", Pitbull calls for "Calle Ocho" - but what does that mean? As a child of Cuban immigrants who grew up in Miami, Pitbull refers to SW 8th street i.e. Calle Ocho in Spanish. This little strip of galleries, studios and shops houses one of the best concentrations of Cuban art in Miami.

We checked out Cuba Ocho which doubles as community centre, art gallery and research for all things Cuban. With an interior that resembles a cool old Havana cigar bar, makes you feel going through some kind of weird time travel back into the old days in Cuba.

Extremely worth a quick stop, we did not spend more than an hour but it was a memorable one...

The vibes of the street, the little shops - where we got some chocolate straight from Venezuela - and the street art, oh the street art... Just lovely,
