New bites and beats concept revitalizes Little Havana area

By Megan Palmer….
The city of Miami is witnessing a true renaissance of its metropolitan downtown with neighborhoods like NoBri and Wynwood seeing investors set up shop to offer the “in crowd” a new, undiscovered hot spot.

Little Havana’s rich history has always attracted many of all ages but most recently has seen a burst of young blood with businesses like La Baguette, 2 Be, Mr. Yums, and now Quiereme Mucho…Morena (Quiereme for short) offering entertainment, nightlife and small bites.

Setting the standard for the next generation on Miami’s celebrated Calle Ocho, Quiereme Mucho…Morena, 1644 SW Eighth St., takes advantage of its culturally central location teeming with history by incorporating old world into a new age entertainment eatery. The cave-like setting with textured walls and a magnificent brass chandelier creates an experience like no other.

Upon entrance, guests will be transformed to an underground music scene where the stage will present a continuous lineup of both established and aspiring music acts. The perfect place for bites and beats, Quiereme Mucho…Morena will be the new destination for authentic music, food and drink.

Embracing its location and all the culture it has to offer, Quiereme has chosen to update the classics instead of replacing them. The mature crowd surely will recognize Quiereme with its cave like, textured walls as the spot on Eighth Street they frequented for live music when it was Kimbra Cumbara.

Using modern colors and patterns, Quiereme blends rich burgundies and golds through the space to create a progressive Victorian scene. A black wood bar will be the place to gather for refreshing libations with a flat screen television overhead for game days. Plush couches mark the VIP section with front row access to the stage.

The bar will serve up house specialty cocktails like the Mojito Martini made with rum, mint coulis and muddled limes then strained to a clean and clear mojito. From the kitchen, Juan Camilo Gomez, a trained chef, will serve up Latin favorites like Empanadas de Camaron al ajill, Arepitas, and Churrasco Strips. A happy hour from 5 to 8 p.m. every day of the week will tempt those looking for fun on a budget.

Acting as a Little Havana-esque CBGB, Quiereme will usher in a variety of talent both upcoming and established.

Throughout the week there will be live entertainment anchored by the resident band La Linea on Friday and Saturday nights. La Linea has appeared at Mia, Epic, Fountaineblu, Blue Martini Brickell, and Sun Life Stadium. On Wednesdays, Quiereme will host an Open Mic Night for those talents seeking a platform to share their music.

Preparing for their opening Friday, Nov. 5, Quiereme Mucho… Morena is ready to bring revitalization to Little Havana and attract an entirely new generation and crowd of scenesters looking for an undiscovered gem.
