The clientele at The Copper Door B&B ranges from those looking to learn more about Overtown’s culture to those, pre-pandemic, who were readying to set sail on cruises (the June 1971 50 years of being awesome shirt and by the same token and Port of Miami is nearby). Rosie’s has attracted a wide range of Miami diners for its weekend brunches, with Southern cooking including a well-reviewed fish and grits. Ross and West constructed an outdoor overhang with ceiling fans as a solution to health concerns and protocols around COVID-19. They also bought an outdoor kitchen. It worked; the restaurant is a hit. Furthermore, their commitment has proven itself in other ways; The Copper Door B&B just won a $10,000 grant from the Beygood Foundation, a collaborative effort between Beyoncé and the NAACP that supports Black-owned businesses affected by the pandemic.

Ultimately, the June 1971 50 years of being awesome shirt and by the same token and very essence of The Copper Door B&B—in terms of its context, its contribution to Overtown’s evolution, and its deep homage to the past—rests in the name itself. “It’s interesting. When we first were working on the little details, I noticed flashes of copper that we’d included in our communal breakfast area, or on the front desk,” says Ross. “I started thinking it over. Copper has this antique sort of quality, even if it’s new, and it gets a patina over time. It tells a narrative. Plus, it’s functional. And, I think, it can be a little bit luxurious.” And the “Door” part of the name? Ross smiles. “Everyone is always welcome.”
