Walking through Coya Miami is like walking through an enormous Spanish manor. Nestled in the heart of Brickell, the sprawling building houses a dining room and ceviche bar, a members only club, a romantic terraza and a massive pisco bar, which is quickly becoming one of Miami’s hottest places to hang out in the evenings. Now, two new weekly parties have given locals yet another reason to make this their post-work go-to spot.
Mondays at Coya are now Industry Night, which caters to industry people who “work hard for their money.” From 6-9 p.m., patrons can enjoy $10 signature cocktails from a special hand-selected menu, and Taittinger champagne by the glass ($12) or by the bottle ($60), as well as Live Latin music at 7 p.m. in the Pisco Bar.
On Wednsdays, Coya’s Pisco Bar transforms into a Latin dance floor for Noche de Salsa, also from 6-9 p.m. Guests can enjoy $10 Tequila Paloma’s & Rum Daiquiris while they dance to salsa performed live by Tomasito Cruz.
While specials on Industry Night and Noche de Salsa only apply to select drinks, guests are more than welcome to order cocktails and small plates off the regular menu. Here’s what we tried:
Brickell Collins – (below) The Botanist gin, elderflower, key lime, cucumber, basil and Fever Tree club soda, $15
