Let’s be real: caviar-topped cocktails are the perfect way to elevate a late-night experience.  Where may you find these cocktails? Discover Bar La Real which is located in the attic of a historic building in Downtown Miami (100 NE 1st Ave, Miami, FL 33132).  The bar thrives off its aptly named “Tropiglam” aesthetic which toes the “thin line between extravagant and elegant.” With its dark furniture, warm lightning, and dreamy decor, Bar La Real guests enter a rustic yet tropical realm accentuated by eye-catching colors and a calming ambiance.

As guests transverse the vivacious venue, they should make themselves comfortable and order one of Bar La Real’s house-based elixirs. These elixirs give guests and their taste buds the opportunity to go on an exciting journey of fruit caviar-topped concoctions designed to enchant the tongue. 

Haraiki 1The first elixir is called the Harakiri. Served in a tall, dashing, rose-shaped glass, the Harakiri is made with Tanqueray Orange, wasabi infused sake, rose liqueur, cranberry shrub, ginger shrub, rose syrup, lime juice, and rose caviar.  Not only do ingredients work to form a delicious taste, but also they do not diminish the concoction’s beauty. The photogenic cocktail boasts light pink, orange, and scarlet hues as well as the gorgeous garnishes, golden origami and thin sliced cucumber wrap around, that complete the aesthetic. The entire look amuses guests before the delight of the first sip. 

GOLD DIGGER BAR LA REALThe second elixir is called the Gold Digger. This honey-colored concoction is made with Ketel One, gold apricot vodka, date vodka, aloe vera juice, champagne, gold powder, and cantaloupe caviar. This treasured cocktail comes with white feather pick and gooseberry with dry leaf cocoon garnishes. Although more simple in appearance than its mesmerizing counterpart, the Gold Digger’s more basic design imparts a sense of refinement and dignity. 

Obsessed with Bar La Real after trying their cocktails? Bar La Real offers a late-night happy hour every Thursday & Friday from 9PM – 11PM. The happy hours feature half-off discounts on all their signature cocktails and 50% off top shelf drinks. These drinks include Macallan Double Malt Scotch, Casamigos Tequila, Tanqueray Gin, Brugal Rum, and Ketel One Vodka.

Who said that the sky’s the limit? 

This February, Tim Petrillo and Alan Roth will launch a new rooftop restaurant and lounge nightlife concept, Rosa Sky. Tim Petrillo is the Co-Founder and CEO of The Restaurant People (TRP). TRP is South Florida’s premier hospitality group credited with spearheading unforgettable venues such as YOLO, Boatyard, Rooftop @1WLO, S3 and Java & Jam. Petrillo joined forces with nightlife connoisseur and hospitality veteran Alan Roth to bring this new marvel to Miami. Rosa Sky will reside at the dual branded AC Hotel by Marriott and Element by Westin, developed by Robert Finvarb Companies and Tony Cho of Metro 1.

A3A8517Rosa Sky is the perfect new venue for those who know that when the “sky is pink, it is time for a drink.” Instead of retiring for the day when the sun goes down, Rosa Sky will provide guests with a place to enjoy themselves, enjoy the sunset, and enjoy the immaculate vibes of a day well spent. The 4,000 square foot rooftop bar and lounge will rest on the 22nd Floor of the all-new dual brand AC & Element Hotel Miami Downtown which is located near the bustling downtown Brickell neighborhood at 115 SW 8th Street, Miami, FL. It will serve as a wonderful place to conclude a day and thrive from the legacy of its creators. “The dynamic partnership between TRP and Alan Roth brings together an incredibly sought-after balance of creativity and unrivaled service which we can’t wait to welcome to the Miami market,” said Robert Finvarb, CEO, Robert Finvarb Companies. “A complement to our hotel’s brands and service level, and certainly to the exciting nightlife and culinary scene in Miami, Rosa Sky will be a must-see for all nightlife connoisseurs.”

A3A8717

The rooftop oasis is designed to provide gorgeous, serene views to give guests a break from the blinding, dreary city lights to which they are painfully accustomed. Rosa Sky will captivate with its allure of an idyllic nightlife atmosphere where guests can feel like they’re on Cloud 9 as they drink, enjoy the sights, and savor shareable appetizers and delectable dishes. Above the worries of the ground below, guests can also clink glasses with creative cocktails and drink and dine to the  beat of featured DJs and music talent reminiscent of Miami’s inimitable magic. 

 

“Rosa Sky will be a true fusion of Miami’s iconic sunsets over the waters and vibrant nightlife scene,” said Roth. “From sun-down happy hours, to waiting for the stars to rise nights there’s a level of entertainment for all to enjoy, and infatuation to be had with Rosa Sky.” 

A3A8805Rosa Sky’s unique venue is as extravagant and captivating as a sunset itself. The great care with which its superior aesthetic was achieved shows in the illuminations of accent fixtures, planters swathed in neon lights, textured walls brightened by rotating vibrant lighting, and perfectly complementary décor. The entire aesthetic and atmosphere reflect the magnificence of the afternoon sky changing from its honey-colored hue to the inky passion of later evening. The vision of Rosa Sky charms even from beneath a hand-crafted cocktail. The bar casts a luminous glow that dazzles rather than distracts. The ceiling showcases a digital map of curated light choreography. The venue’s electric vibe thrives off the constant jolts of energy, color, and movement gained from its lightshow. Music from a variety of featured artists and unique lineups afford guests the same motivation to get off their feet and embrace the infectious beat. Guests can expect artist line-ups such as that of a talented and fierce all-female DJ collective. 

Rosa Sky has every intention of igniting Miami’s nightlife with its eye-catching aesthetic, mood-boosting music, enchanting nightlife and mouth-watering culinary creations. “In true TRP fashion, our innovative culinary team has derived a menu that is as exciting as the venue itself,” said Petrillo. “Cocktails offer bold flavor and bright garnish, and dining options offer inventive combinations of local flair and unique tastes. All presented with the highest level of service culture from a team of dedicated staff, and set to one of the most colorful backdrops in the nightlife industry. Rosa Sky is the perfect melding of scene and substance.” 

Rosa Sky will offer a variety of drinks such as “The Rosa Sky” which guests can order by the glass or in a shareable style that serves four. “The Rosa Sky” is made with Grey Goose Strawberry Lemongrass, citrus and sparkling rosé. The delicious concoction is poured over signature rose shaped ice cubes and into a martini glass. There are also cocktails like the “Golden Hour” which is made with Aperol, grapefruit and the all-new Calirosa Blanco Tequila. Presented by entertainer Adam Levine, the Calirosa Blanco Tequila is a premium tequila that is a fusion of Mexican spirit and California style. There is also another drink called, “the Violet Views,” that has Kettle One Vodka, crème de violet, blackberry and sage. In addition to wonderfully curated and aptly themed drinks, Rosa Sky will offer dishes inspired by local delicacies such as Cuban “Cigars”. The shareable “Cigars” have a crispy shell, jamon, lechon, queso, pickle relish, mustard aioli and scallion ash or the Tiradito of Tuna Aji Amarillo with guanabana and sweet potato. 

After it opens this February, Rosa Sky will welcome guests Wednesday through Saturday from 4:30 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. and Sunday from 4:30 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. For more information about Rosa Sky, please visit www.rosaskyrooftop.com. Follow @rosaskyrooftop on Instagram and Facebook for the latest events, promotions, and updates.

The team behind Downtown Miami’s beloved neighborhood bar Lost Boy, welcomes their first restaurant, Tropezón, an Andalusian gin and tapas restaurant and bar which recently opened on December 14, 2021, at 512 Espanola Way located next door to Esmé Miami Beach hotel. Tucked away in the Mediterranean-like corridors of South Beach’s historic street, co-founders Randy Alonso and Chris Hudnall of growing hospitality brand Lost Boy & Co., welcome the funky new spot serving up Spanish-inspired tapas, gin-forward cocktails, and much more.

Tropezón, which means “to stumble” in Spanish, takes inspiration from namesake Spanish village bars where old men play afternoon cards, and women converse over sips of Sherry. Now open for dinner and late-night drinking, the charming indoor-outdoor dining space offers a cozy, old-world vibe that welcomes neighbors, travelers, and locals eager for Spanish comfort, signature tapas, and an insanely good gin program.

Tropezon1728“We are thrilled to welcome another concept to our regulars and loyal customer base from Lost Boy. We aim to bring the same community feels we built in Downtown to Española Way, an area that is quickly transforming into a versatile destination. With the opening of Tropezón, we aim to offer a new local spot where you can stumble in for tapas and sherry, a weekday Gin & Tonic, or a late-night dinner with friends,” says co-owner Chris Hudnall. “The goal for us is to embrace the traditions of Spain, specifically of the Andalusian region, where tapas culture is still celebrated today. We want to introduce this culture to our guests and give them a sense of what dining in Andalucía is like,” adds co-owner Randy Alonso.

Paying homage to the pueblos in Spain, the bar celebrates its love for gin with a wide depth of gin infusions, taking the beverage program to the next level. Guests can choose from a collection of more than 20 variations infused with tea, fruits, nuts, and even cured meats. The Gin & Tonic section of the menu features unique variations that serve as great refreshments for Miami’s warm climate. G&T’s such as Blue Matcha Yuzu, and Local Strawberry are soon-to-be favorites alongside updated classics like Vermut and Rose Sangria and Gin Martinis. Imbibers will also look forward to the bar’s extensive list of Sherry, Vermouth, and selection of classic Spanish cocktails done right.

Tropezón, located at 512 Española Way, is now open for dinner Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. and until 2 a.m. on Friday & Saturday with the kitchen open until 10 p.m. nightly. The restaurant has plans to launch breakfast, happy hour, and a late-night tapas menu soon. For more information, please call (305) 763-8523 or visit www.TropezónMiami.com.

This holiday season, the Champagne Bar at The Surf Club will bring back their iconic parties by first launching a new cocktail collection reminiscent of these memorable celebrations. The new collection, aptly called “Reflections,” will honor the memory and the legacy of the iconic celebrations that occurred at The Surf Club since the 1930s. 

The Champagne Bar team thrives under the direction of Head Bartender Valentino Longo. Longo and his team created the collection’s eight cocktails which are a modern interpretation of the historic themed parties that once celebrated culture and life in a truly gorgeous venue. 

“The vision behind Reflections is to relive the spark of what The Surf Club is historically known for — the years of parties, the happiness among people having fun and living in the moment,” said Longo.

To keep a spontaneous and lively atmosphere, a series of guest bartenders will accompany the presentation of each cocktail. Archive photos of past dinner parties and galas hint at the Surf Club’s enduring allure. It was the place to be in the winter social season. Longo and his team have ensured that it will also be the place to be this winter season. 

 “The Surf Club created the perfect social scene back in the day, where the parties were always unique with elaborate styles and themes,” continued Longo. “Our new cocktails honour this legacy while interpreting each theme for today’s guest.”

Last Tuesday, November 16th, the Four Seasons celebrated “Derby day” with all the flair of a spectacular soiree. The hotel encouraged guests to dress in the Derby-theme. Special guest Bartender, Masa Urushido of New York City’s Katana Kitten and winner of 2020’s World Best Bar, shined at the illustrious event. Urushido and the Champagne Bar team showcased four one-night only cocktails created using Woodford Reserve Bourbon. A live band also amused the attendees the entire night, providing an amazing ambiance. 

The Derby day event represented only a taste of what the Champagne Bar has in store. The Reflections Guest Bartender series will return every month and feature one of the new eight cocktails. 

“The art is in the garnish and the feel of each cocktail,” said Longo. “Fiesta in Rio for example – themed to the annual festival in Rio de Janeiro – uses authentic Brazilian ingredients, such as cachaca and Brazil nuts, paired with local produce from Miami. The cocktail allows you to experience what Fiesta in Rio would feel, look and taste like right here in Miami, through a thoughtful blend of local flavors rooted in the culture of the party’s theme.”

It is time to celebrate in style. Reflections is now available at The Champagne Bar. Consumers may also enjoy the hot new collection at Lido Restaurant at The Surf Club if they dare to discover the bar’s historic archways.

There is a new bar in town. 

The Last Call Hospitality Group, the same masterminds behind Redbar Brickell and the Sweet Caroline Karaoke Bar, have developed a new nightlife concept: a cocktail bar called Tipsy Flamingo. Situated in the heart of beautiful, bustling downtown Miami, the Tipsy Flamingo heightens the Miami experience with incredibly crafted cocktails and a fun, carefree atmosphere.

“Basically, we took the best characteristics of Miami from the tropical ambiance and colors to the sounds and blended them together to create a unique and intimate venue that’s rare to find in this city,” said Tipsy Flamingo Co-Owner Juan Marcos Rancano. 

tipstflamingo2 lorestipsyflamingo loresjpgTipsyFlamingo5 loresjpg

Last Call Hospitality Group opened their third bar concept to satisfy an important vibe that was missing from the opportune area. “The bars in Downtown Miami are great, but they mostly cater to a specific demographic,” explained Rancano. “That’s why we decided to create a bit more of an elevated cocktail concept that combines the fun atmosphere of a bar with the trendy and intimate feel of a lounge.” 

To create a venue unlike any other, the Tipsy Flamingo team brought their vision of an elevated cocktail bar experience to fruition with ingenuity, dedication, and fashion. The cocktail bar has the style and feel of a cocktail lounge to invite intimacy and sophistication to this one-of-a-kind budding hotspot. The impressive venue is 1,300 square feet and constantly draws inspiration from the illustrious city of Miami. Using the tropical city’s gorgeous, natural elements, Tipsy Flamingo shines in the greens, purples, and hot pink for which Miami is known. With walls decorated in whimsical vintage palm leaf wallpaper and faux foliage, the cocktail bar captures the essence of paradise itself.  

cocktail 1There is also a diverse collection of artwork that decorates the walls as well as groovy neon signs. In keeping with the bar’s clever, thoughtful theme, there is a cheeky sign that reads “No Flocks Given.” During the earlier hours of operation and Happy Hour, the bar features guest seating. Later in the night, the Tipsy Flamingo team turns the bar into “a more loungey vibe” with cocktail tables and posh seating to the right of the venue. Local DJs are featured nightly. They spin open format style and their musical stylings range from Funk and Disco to Hip Hop and Reggaetón.

Marco Balza

The cocktail menu, which was created by Venezuelan Bartender Marco Balza,  serves as an ode to the Magic City. Balza designed each drink to pay homage to the city’s personality and showcase its vibrance, boldness, and mesmerizing allure. Some of the cocktails guests can expect are the “Downtown Mentirita” (the Tipsy Flamingo’s version of the classical Cuba Libre) and the extremely popular “My English Is Not Very Good Looking.” The second cocktail tastes like a pastelito de guayaba which is a delicious Cuban dessert.

The Tipsy Flamingo is open Tuesday through Sunday. The festivities will start at 5 PM with a Happy Hour. Then, the venue will transform into a groovy, elevated cocktail bar until 3 AM. 

For more information about the Tipsy Flamingo visit their website at www.tipsyflamingomiami.com or follow Tipsy Flamingo on Instagram @tipsyflamingomiami.

La Cañita’s spectacular view of Miami’s waterfront offers the perfect backdrop for lunch or dinner, celebrating The Infectious Spirit of the Islands and Central and South American Culture with Eclectic Menu, Rum-Centric Cocktails and Live Music Daily

La Cañita is meant to invoke the feeling of a distillery somewhere in the tropics of the Caribbean. Like the various influences found in the food and cocktails, the interior features vintage tropical wallpaper, carefully mismatched cement tile lining the bar, and dusky pink walls that conjure the colonial architecture of the Caribbean islands. The restaurant also conveys an open-aired, industrial feel that one might experience at some of the region’s best rum producers with giant copper columns that run from floor to ceiling.

The bar will feature five flavors of Mojito — strawberry, guava, passion fruit, mango, and coconut — and the same five flavors for their Tommy’s Margarita. Among the 20 cocktails on the menu, other standouts include the Oaxaca, a Mexican-style Negroni; and Our Old Fashioned featuring rosemary-infused whiskey, date bitters, and grapefruit. 

Beer by the bottle and five options on draught, including Modelo, Estrella Damm, and La Rubia blonde ale from Wynwood Brewing Company. Wine offerings include three sparkling wines, five whites, and four red wines from both Old and New World producers. 

The 4,800-square-foot restaurant is jointly owned by James Beard Foundation Award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein, known for her command of pan-Latin cuisines, and partner David Martinez, equally well-known for his expertise in world-class, award-winning hospitality. Together, they’ve partnered with Davide Borgia and Orestes Pajon to bring this high-energy space to life.

“La Cañita is quintessential Miami,” says Martinez. “We are so fortunate to have this melting pot of cultural and culinary influences in this city, and we hope to put them front-and-center with our new concept-driven restaurant. Between the big flavors and fun cocktail combinations, plus an amazing location with spectacular views, and live music filling the space day and night, La Cañita will be Miami’s go-to place to celebrate all the vibrancy of Latin and Caribbean culture. We’re looking forward to contributing to the continued growth of Bayside Marketplace’s landmark property; and ultimately, to spread the spirit of this great concept to other pockets of the country.” 

La Cañita’s menu features a selection of hot and chilled appetizers, soups, empanadas, salads and sandwiches, along with entrees from land and sea, and desserts. The restaurant will also offer a kid’s menu for family dining. 

Upon opening, the restaurant will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays and will be open Wednesday and Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. For more information, please visit LaCañitaMiami.com, follow the restaurant at @LaCañitaMiami or email info@lacanitamiami.com.
