Multi-Level Food Hall With A Rooftop Restaurant & Basement Bar Planned In Downtown Miami

A multi-level food hall called Julia & Henry’s is planned in downtown Miami.

The project will the restoration of the historic Walgreen’s building, which was built in 1936.

Julia & Henry’s will include:

  • Jolene – a speakeasy bar in the basement said to be inspired by Al Capone. There will also be a karaoke room.
  • Food Hall –  spread over three floors with 26 different food and beverage tenants, including nationally and internationally recognized chefs. There will be multiple bar and seating areas. Four of the ground floor tenants will be able to sell through windows to the street, with the goal of creating “ventanitas.”
  • Offices – the third and fourth floor will have 17,568 square feet of co-working office space with capacity for up to 300 people
  • Rooftop – on the fourth level rooftop, a high-end restaurant, bar and lounge is planned

The name of the building pays homage to Julia Tuttle and Henry Flagler, the developers wrote.

Stambul is the developer.

Miami’s Historic and Environmental Preservation Board is scheduled to review the plans on February 2.

I like how the name is inspired by famous developers of Miami which include Henry Flagler and Julia Tuttle, but the inspiration for the speakeasy. I’m not so sure about that.

Except they didn’t force delays on streetscape improvements because they wanted curbless sidewalks and can’t make up their mind on bricks.

The CBD has all the potential to shadow Brickell. It’s the real old city center so it’s more urban. Walking is easier than Brickell

It had the potential when Brickell was literally just the Four Ambassadors, but get rich quick schemes and slumlords turned it into parking lots, flea market malls, and decay.

I love Italian food too but every other restaurant doesn’t have to be Italian. How about a few Spanish restaurants?
