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.
“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.
