The Northwest Historic District is a U.S. historic district (designated as such on January 22, 1992) located in West Palm Beach, Florida. The district is bounded by Tamarind Avenue, Eleventh Street, Rosemary Avenue and 3rd Street. It contains 316 historic buildings. The West Palm Beach Community Development Agency has targeted the area, and is restructuring Tamarind Avenue and 7th Streets.[2] They are also restoring the Sunset Lounge, called the "Cotton Club of the South", one of the few remaining venues on the Chitlin' Circuit.[3]
