Miami just got a bounty of new places for you to lounge from Brickell to Miami Beach.
Part of a bigger take over that included the legendary Club Space, former after hours hot spot Libertine has reopened its doors as Floyd, a haven for jazzy live performances, eclectic DJ sets, disco and soulful house.
10 p.m. till late Thursday-Sunday, Floyd Miami, 34 NE 11th St, Miami
YAKU by La Mar bar & lounge
YAKU by La Mar, a waterfront bar and lounge at the swanky Mandarin Oriental featuring Peruvian-inspired punch cocktails, is your new place to land when your hanging in Brickell. Despite its high-rent location, the drinks are surprisingly reasonable priced.
6-11 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 500 Brickell Key Drive, Miami; 305-913 8358
This place is seriously cool, Miami, and I don’t think we have anything else quite like it: a truly intimate cocktail bar with a touch Old World New York City charm serving an unfussy, yet ambitious bistro menu with admirable precision.
Employees Only, 1030 Washington Ave., South Beach; 786-264-3945
Providores & Publicans by Tino
Constantine De Lucia, the man behind Tino’s and Ichimi, has a new spot in Brickell that serves the dinner and beyond crowd with a house cocktail menu featuring 20 signature drinks and well-known favorites. Lounge al fresco in the expansive patio or head to the heart of the venue, a sweeping bar, and take your drink to one of the comfy couches and kick back. The best part: You can dine until the joint closes (at 5 a.m.) on legit chow.
