What’s up in Little Havana: Life House

THE NEIGHBORHOOD: Little Havana

THE PLACE: Life House Hotel is Little Havana’s first boutique hotel, and it’s not just for travelers. It’s for locals who want to live like they travel here. The courtyard feels more like a backyard with its plants, hammock, and edible garden.

The cafe, Parcela, offers a modern take on Latin cuisine—inspired by the neighborhood—with vegan and vegetarian options and, of course, a “ventanita.”

QUOTABLE: “It’s beautiful to be part of the future that is remembering the roots of a beautiful community with so much history.” —Francisco Viñas, Parcela’s chef de cuisine

CHECK IT OUT: Parcela is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Ñam.
