Please join us as we continue our six-month long #HIALEAHNOW Series at the CRATEMATES DJ SHOWCASE! Jameson Irish Whiskey brings great music to Hialeah for this indoor warehouse party with their Cratemates DJ Crew. Join us and enjoy a great night in the Leah Arts District with some of the hottest South Florida talent hitting the turntables and battling it out for your applause. They curate a unique, virtual crate for five hand-picked contestants before each take the stage for a 10-minute set to show us what they got. While you jam to their beats, watch the Paint YO Crate Battle where three local street artists ((REMOTEROC, SURGE and PHD)) are selected to paint Jameson crates LIVE! The 10-minute battle will put the pressure on as they compete for their chance to work on a Jameson Cratemates mural at Wood Tavern and a cash prize.
We will disclose the secret underground warehouse location when we provide you with the passcode to get in. RSVP to request your entrance code at cratemates.eventbrite.com.

About The Leah Arts District
Hialeah’s Southeastern industrial corridor rose to prominence during the 1980s as one of the largest and busiest areas of production and manufacturing in Florida. As a result of modernization combined with the effects of outsourcing, the uses that were once prevalent in the area dissipated and this particular area was all but abandoned.
Since that time, a medley of different uses has been incorporated into the area including a heavy presence of some of Miami-Dade County’s most prolific thrift stores.
These thrift stores have been instrumental in introducing Hialeah to an entire generation of antique lovers and artists. The Hialeah Artist Live/Work Overlay District, also known as The Leah Arts District, enjoys a strategic proximity to the newly proposed Hialeah Market Station development project, Miami’s artistic hubs, and other destination areas within Miami-Dade County. Because of it's location and highly affordable price per square footage, Hialeah’s new Artist Live / Work District is in a position to play a vital and important role in the artistic and cultural development of not only Hialeah, but the entire South Florida community.
