It gets people pushing tables together, and that's all you can ask for. Here is more infromation about PUNCH :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"This used to be News Lounge. It’s since been taken over by the El Patio crew and given a decidedly Cuban makeover. See, the owners took a trip to Havana and decided to rip a page out of their boxing museum’s playbook. Which probably explains the boxing gloves lining the walls, the blue lockers and the poster of Cuban boxer Kid Chocolate on the wall. The theme is strong with this one. Inside, you’ve got a few options. There’s the Trophy Room, a solid spot for some rum and vaca frita sliders amongst a cadre of medals and championship belts. Then there’s the adjacent Ring Room with a private space in the back lined with punching bags. But the patio is where you’ll find the bar. It’s a makeshift one fashioned out of 5,000 domino pieces and bottle-lined scaffolding. To keep you entertained: an outdoor billiards table and a stage for late-night salsa dance-offs." written by Jackie Gutierrez-Jones.

 

According to New Times :

"The two owners came up with their new spot's name, Punch, during the taxi ride from the Havana airport. "The first place we visited was the most beautiful, cool thing: an old boxing ring surrounded by all these crumbled down ruins. Everything was made out of wood and metal." That boxing ring provided the inspiration for Punch's centerpiece, a 25-foot scaffolding at the bar (which is made from made dominoes) with a Cuban flag planted on top. Perez and Hoyos were also particularly intrigued by the legend of Kid Chocolate, the Havana-born light heavyweight boxing champion of the '30s. "The entire inside has a vintage boxing feel as a play on our name. We have giant punch bowls of mojitos that comes in three different flavors: heavyweight, middleweight, and lightweight." written by David Rolland.

Copper 29 Bar is a Cocktail & Tapas Bar located in Coral Gables in Miami, Florida. They've just open in August in the location that once held Ticety Iced Tea Bar at 206 Miracle Mile, Miami, Florida 33134. The bar menu was created by former La Mar beverage manager Eleftherios Kraounakis (aka Lef), and features a variety of signature cocktails that are broken down on the menu by flavor profile, preparation style and even mention what glass it’ll be served in. As an ode to its namesake, copper, it even gives the chemical formula of the spirit in the beverage. But if you’d rather have the bartender create a custom beverage for you on the spot, that can be done as well. Here is more information about Copper 29 :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"If you said anything other than “whiskey,” then stop. Do not pass go. And immediately make your way to Copper 29, a welcoming new bar where you can safely tuck yourself away from the masses with a smoking glass of bourbon, soft-open now in Coral Gables. Take a look around. The obvious play in a place like this: after work. The long stretch of wooden bar with copper accents, old-timey lamps and chandeliers invites a proper hunkering down with a glass of something brown. But if that’s all you’re thinking, you’d be underestimating it. A lot. Because later in the night, a DJ will emerge from behind the bar. Which won’t displease the group you’ve gathered around the vintage tufted couches and wingback chairs. Also in the not displeasing category: a round of pork confit sliders from a former Cantina La Veinte chef." written by JACKIE GUTIERREZ-JONES.

 

According to New Times :

"The Don't Herb Me ($14) cocktail is made with Old Forester bourbon, dry eucalyptus shrub, star anise extract, black walnut bitters, and a cherry-oak-smoked ice-cube served in a glass dome. What makes this a great sipping drink is the unexpected sweetness from the shrub. Kraounakis says of his creation, "I love eucalyptus — it reminds me a lot of my mother and grandmother. When I was a kid, when anyone would get sick, they would boil eucalyptus for its healing properties, and the whole house would smell of it. I found a great combination with the bourbon, and we add a bit of smokiness with cherry-wood smoke. It’s a great show as well for the table." Written by PAULA ECHEVARRIA.

 

According to Yelp :

"THE BEST BAR IN THE GABLES....HANDS DOWN
I consider ourselves foodies and we LOVE the gables area. this has to be the best bar right now. we only came for drinks before dinner.

The owner of Tap 42 bar continuing its Miami expansion. After its opening in Coral Gables in mid-May, it announced they are opening its fourth location in Midtown Miami. The gastropub is taking over the now vacant Apeiro space at 3252 NE 1 Avenue, which closed abruptly last month after of less than a year in business. The massive 6,150 square foot space, when it transforms into Tap 42, will feature plenty of interior and exterior seating with an expansive outdoor patio, suitable for the 42 types of beers on tap that popular eatery and bar plans to serve. Previously Tap 42 opened 2 locations already at Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and Coral Gables. Here is more information about their Midtown location :

 

According to Miami.com :

"Following its first Miami location in Coral Gables, Tap 42 Craft Kitchen & Bar has announced that their next location will be located in Midtown Miami in the space formerly known as Apeiro. Opening sometime in November, this one will feature a huge inside/outside bar with 42 craft beers on tap, plus covered patio dining and separate, spacious schmoozing and boozing area. "We've been in love with this location since we first saw it years ago, as we feel it is the best and highest profile location in all of mid-Miami", said Partner & VP of Development Alex Rudolph. "Midtown has a large and quickly-expanding population, augmented by areas like Edgewater, Wyndwood, the Design District, Downtown, Brickell, and MIMO, and can even draw from areas like Miami Shores, Bay Point, and Miami Beach. On the heels of the success of our Boca Raton and newly-opened Coral Gables locations, we couldn't be more excited to join the mid-Miami business community." written by Lesley Abravanel.

 

According to New Times :

"Tap 42 is also perfectly situated near Wynwood and the epicenter of Miami's beer scene. "I think it fits perfectly into the neighborhood," Rudolph says. "We have a great relationship with all the breweries in Wynwood." The restaurant executive is also quick to point out there's more to Tap 42 than beer. "While the name denotes a craft beer bar, we're more than that. It's an awesome place to have approachable food and cocktails. Our vibe fits into this evolving Miami area." The midtown Tap 42 will boast some cool, unique features, according to Rudolph. "There's going to be an indoor/outdoor bar that will open up. We're going to have a pretty extensive patio and a beer garden. This is something the midtown area has been missing." written by Laine Doss.

Sugar is the 40th floor rooftop bar and garden, offers cocktails and Asian tapas. There you can relax and watch day turn into night as you take in the panoramic view overlooking the downtown Miami skyline and surrounding waterways below. Sugar is located at the top of the EAST hotel, which was the first tower to top off at the project. Here is more information about Sugar :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"There’s nothing but open sky here, so be prepared to make your exit should the rain gods decide to crash the party. Silly rain gods. The idea: a Balinese garden with a bar toward the back and plenty of intimate nooks nestled amongst trees and shrubbery for imbibing with a date. That’s the idea. Speaking of imbibing, the Sesame Sling with gin, sesame, hibiscus and mango is a viable option. As is the rye-and-Thai-iced-tea concoction they’re calling the Sweet Life. The edible things skew toward the Asian tapas side. Lamb and beef satay. Crispy tandoori squid. Stuff like that. Should rain happen, take cover in the loving arms of the bar at Quinto La Huella down on the fifth floor."

 

According to Yelp :

"Brickell and classy aren't two words I would normally use together in a sentence, but the hot new rooftop lounge, Sugar, is breaking the rules (for now)!   Located on the 40th floor of Brickell City Centre's EAST hotel, Sugar pays homage to its developers roots, with Asian Pacific decor throughout.  The style is unobtrusive, but felt slightly out of place.  However, the show stopper here isn't the decor; its the 360 degree city view! With maze like gardens and candles everywhere for mood enhancement, it is easy to see Sugar has something Brickell does not--- a quiet place to have a drink.  Small tables with benches surround the perimeter of the rooftop plus a few scattered love seats and a center bar.  The place is small and so are the food and drink menus.  The servers were always helpful and welcoming." written by Davina (rated 4 stars).

A new addition to Brickell’s vibrant dining scene, Baby Jane now opens since May 3rd. Brought to you by Native Sons Hospitality, the beloved emerging hospitality group behind Ariete, helmed by Sidebar’s Jason Odio and Cyprus Room alum, Chef Michael Beltran, along with Odio’s longtime mentor, nightlife honcho Roman Jones, Baby Jane fills a void among Brickell’s high-priced eateries, providing a laid-back bungalow atmosphere for post-work craft cocktails and evening snacks like duck and foie gras croquettas and pastrami tacos. Here is more information about Baby Jane :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"First, take whatever notions you have of Brickell hangouts and leave them stacked neatly by the door. Good. That’ll make it a lot easier to take in the elk horns on the wall, the church pew seats and the cozy fireplace. The fireplace is mostly there for show, though. Oh, there you are, Brickell. Starting at the bar is probably the right call. You’ll want to scan the “Punch Board” and see if anything strikes your fancy. Maybe a Jane and Juice with gin, passion fruit, jalapeño and honey. But be advised that a bottle of beer will play just as well here. Blame the elk horns."

 

According to New Times :

"Baby Jane does have a few booths running along its walls, but I opted to sit at the bar, which in hindsight was a good choice that I highly recommend. The cocktail-forward nature of the joint means this really doesn't feel like a restaurant at all. Here, I could see myself ordering drinks and bites to nibble on as the night wears on. Which is exactly what I did, beginning with the Bebito ($13), made with Illegal mezcal, lime juice, simple syrup, Luxardo maraschino, green chartreuse, muddled jalapeño, and rosemary. The not-too-sweet concoction was balanced out with the heat of the jalapeño. The Jane & Juice ($14) was also a wise choice. Made with Bombay Sapphire gin, cucumber bitters, lime juice, St-Germain, and egg white, it reminded me of a meringue cookie." written by Jose D. Duran.

 

According to Eater :

"Housed inside the 500 Brickell building it features a variety of food and beverages with an old school American feel. On the food side, think elevated bar grub like grilled wings in a soy caramel sauce, duck and foie gras croquetas, tacos made with short rib pastrami, along with heartier dishes like a "Pig Stack" burger made with two pork patties and BBQ chicken thighs. To wash all that food down with is plenty of libations focusing on dozens of housemade bitters, tonics and shrubs, and "ever changing" punch board, plus local beers on tap and by the bottle and lots of wines." written by Olee Fowler.

Created by Bar Lab, The Anderson is a neighborhood bar for our neighbors. We don't see anything wrong with a little good cocktails, good food and live music. Taking over the former Magnum Lounge space at 709 NE 79th Street, The Anderson opens at Upper Eastside. Here is more information about The Anderson :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"Then, take your late-night endeavors to the Anderson, an ’80s-leaning watering hole from the city’s favorite cocktailing duo. It’s now open where the legendary Magnum Lounge once stood, here’s what it looks like, and here’s a rundown of what’s stayed the same and what hasn’t...
Then: A charmingly seedy piano bar with racy red walls and crystal chandeliers.
Now: Most of the place is still intact, with the mirrors and red couches firmly holding their own. But they’ve added some ’80s flair with animal-print wallpaper and a beachy back patio with frozen drinks. And that legendary piano—you’ll find it on its own stage. Respect, people."

 

According to Eater :

"Inside the darkly lit lounge designed by Josh Wollowick, which is very reminiscent of its predecessor Magnum with the addition of animal print walls, it showcases a menu divided into two sections: new wave cocktails and originals. The originals are "forgotten classics" from the 80s and 90s like the Appletini, while new wave are the more unique Bar Lab cocktails that they have built their reputation on. As for food, the space tapped Vagabond’s executive chef Alex Chang to create a menu with new twists on traditional bar dishes like smokey queso dip, hot dogs topped with Japanese spicy sauce and beef rinds tossed in Cool Ranch Doritos seasoning." written by Olee Fowler.

 

According to New Times :

"The Anderson's cocktail menu is divided into two categories — "New Wave" and "Originals." New Wave drinks are takes on classic libations of the '80s and '90s. The Let's Dance ($14) is a twist on a dirty martini, made with Elyx vodka, caper berries, filthy olive brine, and truffle spray. The Like a Virgin ($11) is a take on the cosmopolitan, the drink made famous in the '90s by the characters of Sex and the City, who slurped the pink beverage all over Manhattan in the HBO runaway hit series that defined dating long before Girls.

Located at 100 Collins Ave next to Prime Fish, CRAFT SOCIAL CLUB is the flagship concept of LPRT Group.  Blending the worlds of nightlife and craft cocktails, CSC is the first to feature Cocktail Suites. Evolving the VIP-Table, Cocktail Suites have built-in service bars which allow for table-side cocktail experiences unlike any bottle service in the world. Not one for popping bottles?  CSC’s main bar will bring the spirit of the home kitchen to life.  Highlighted by an open-aired cocktail kitchen and batching station, a theatrical assembly line of hand-crafted cocktails can be seen producing innovative recipes with speed and consistency. Here is more information about Craft Social Club :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"It’s got gray brick walls. It’s got a bunch of comfortable places to sit. It’s got a big L-shaped bar made up of white subway tile. But most importantly, it’s got taps behind that bar loaded with drinks that’ve been carefully crafted in the neighboring open-air kitchen. Like the Dillinger with bourbon and orange bitters. Or the O.D.B. with tequila, lime and Fresno chili agave. Or the absolutely-anything-else because they’re all worthy of your full attention and respect. Show up late-night with the kind of group that has a loose interpretation of the word “night.” Opt for one of those navy banquettes and laugh at all the funny things you keep saying to each other. Or better yet, request a cocktail suite. Those come equipped with built-in service bars and bartenders who know how to use them for good."

 

According to Eater :

"Craft Social Club is the brainchild of industry vets RT Murphy and LP Steele, who have revamped the space to include hanging shrubbery, plenty of exposed brick and an open kitchen, which isn't serving food just yet — but we're told a small bites menu will be coming shortly. The bar is now open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. at 100 Collins Avenue." written by Olee Fowler.

The guys behind Grand Central introduced a new nightlife destination to Miami. Blending a passion for cocktail culture, live music and unpretentious vibes, 1306 is the perfect unison of a neighborhood cocktail bar and versatile event space, located in the heart of Downtown Miami, in a historic building from the 1920’s.  The Bar at 1306 (thirteen o' six) is your classic neighborhood bar features intimate indoor and outdoor seating fashioned for the enjoyment of classically prepared cocktails from the old and new world.  Open 7 days per week from 5pm-5am for happy hour, evening libations and late nightcaps.  Our catered aperitivo menu is offered throughout the night and served complimentary during happy hour from 5pm-8pm. The versatile event space at 1306 (thirteen o' six) provides a refined backdrop to accommodate events of all varieties in a location convenient to Downtown, Wynwood and the Beaches.  From corporate events to private parties, concerts, product launches and brand activations, award ceremonies, dinners, meetings, talks and forums as well as film and production shoots, the space at 1306 is the canvas where you bring your creative visions to life. Here is more information about 1306 :

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"You say it’s the place you’re about to spend a lot less time in because here’s a fine new establishment where you can get a damn good drink at 5am. That establishment is 1306, and it’s a homey cocktailing nook serving up heady concoctions into the wee hours, now open in Downtown. This is in the former White Room space. The one that sat empty and brooding for a few years. That is, until the guys behind Grand Central came along and gave it a completely new feel. Dark damask wallpaper, potted plants, suede armchairs and wooden curios will do that to a place. You’ll find it by locating the bright-red sign that reads “bar.” And they’ve got a Broken Shaker vet mixing drinks until 5am with suspicious names like the Mostly Harmless involving mezcal, sweet vermouth and Aperol. In case of misnomers, they’ve got plates of meats and cheeses, too."

 

According to New Times :

"Such is the concept behind the 1306 front bar, a cozy place for sophisticated drinkers to enjoy from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. every night of the week. You'll find no $3 beer special here, just a signature menu of craft cocktails designed by Virginia King of Broken Shaker fame. Tables will adorn the well-lit sidewalk outside, and happy hour takes a European twist. Instead of half-priced drinks, customers will enjoy regularly priced drinks with a complimentary food plate – meats, cheeses, and an assortment of finger foods – simply for stopping by and ordering a round. The bar component will stay rather small, like a high-end version of the Corner, if you will. That leaves the courtyard and back lot area open for 400-capacity shows and parties." written by Kat Bein.

Rockwell, a new nightlife sensation has been open at Miami Beach. Rockwell will bring the perfect storm of LA cool, New York music and Miami energy to the space with this venture. Located on 743 Washington Avenue, the concept pays homage to Miami's rich history in nightlife, a rebirth of the space that formerly held the exclusive South Beach hotspots including Les Bains and Chaos. Rockwell is brought by legendary nightclub persario Chris Pacellio who has partnered with Milo Danilovic formerly of SBE Group. There vision for Rockwell is that it will be a club that reallly takes care of there clients with the best in hospitality. Here is more information about Rockwell :

 

According to South Beach Magazine :

"Rockwell’s Washington Avenue location formerly held clubs Les Bains and Chaos. Slated to hold just 450 guests, the venue was designed by famed Miami-based Interior Designer Francois Frossard (who also crafted the former Arkadia space at the Fontainebleau Resort) to reflect Paciello’s notions of “LA cool, New York music and Miami energy.” With a focus on hospitality, Rockwell will offer a mixed musical format and feature live performances as well. In many South Beach clubs, the success of any given evening is wholly determined by the DJ booked to perform. Paciello hopes to broaden his new club’s focus to the quality of the venue and the energy and atmosphere of the space. Following a successful career as Vice Presient of Sam Nazarian’s Las Vegas and Los Angeles hospitality brand SBE, Danilovic joins the South Beach nightlife community with hopes to provide South Florida clubgoers a truly unique entertainment option." written by AM Dreer.

 

According to Urban Daddy :

"In the tradition of great South Beach clubs of yore (looking at you, Liquid), Chris Paciello is on the scene here. And he’s stocked the place with tufted banquettes that work their way throughout the room, a crazy lotus-like light display on the ceiling and a version of da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man on the wall. It’s like Basel never left. You’ll head here whenever the mood to surround yourself with a crowd of sexy, writhing strangers strikes. Make your way to the long stretch of bar toward the back, grab something made of alcohol and make for the dance floor. It’ll be fine. It’ll all be so fine. In the midst of all of this, there’ll be a DJ, sure. But there also might be some scantily clad, bejeweled ladies walking around with camping lights strapped to their heads."

 

According to Miami.com :

"Paciello and Danilovic said they “plan to bring the art of hospitality back to nightlife” as they recognize the shift in nightlife where the experience is more important that the DJ. Open format music and live performances will take center stage at Rockwell. “Following a successful career in both Los Angeles and Las Vegas, I am truly thrilled to be welcomed into such a close-knit nightclub community in the competitive market that is South Beach,” Danilovic said in a statement. With our synergy and aligned vision for Rockwell, Chris and I are looking forward to opening ourdoors to a great party." written by Fred Gonzalez.

Close your eyes, take a deep breath and be transported to the bygone era of glitz and glamour that will come to life at El Tucán, a new modern-day cabaret that reinvigorates the lavish dinner and show concepts of Havana, Cuba.

 

Located in Brickell, the venue will feature a range of musical styles from Afro-Latin to Parisian pop, bringing international DJs and emerging acts to center stage and creating the ultimate nightlife experience. In addition to an eclectic musical lineup, El Tucán will house a resident 12-piece orchestra, carefully curated by Grammy award-winning pianist, composer and producer Marlow Rosado, that is reminiscent of the big bands from the jazz eras of the 40s and 50s. Food will also be a mainstay at El Tucan, featuring lux libations and Caribbean and South American fare that uses hints of Amazonian ingredients that will be created by renowned Executive Chef Jean Paul Lourdes.

 

Bedecked with crystal chandeliers, gold-framed mirrors and crushed velvet accents, the intimate, theater-style venue will also be open late night, so partygoers can continue feting after-hours. With strong Latin influences ingrained into its cuisine and stellar musical programming, El Tucán will turn your dream of a modern cabaret into a reality. Here is more information about El Tucan :

 

According to Miami.com :

"El Tucán will feature live acts twice a night every Thursday through Saturday, as well as a resident 2-piece Latin orchestra hand-selected by Grammy award-winning composer, producer and pianist Marlow Rosado. New Zealand-born Chef Jean Paul Lourdes will curate culinary offerings inspired by traditional Latin, Caribbean and South American fare, while master mixologists Gabriel Orta and Elad Zvi of Bar Lab craft a diverse selection of artful and creative cocktails." written by Amanda Mesa.

 

According to New Times :

"With a stage, dance floor, and two bars, the main floor of El Tucán is where all the action happens. Overlooking the pachanga on the second floor is a third bar and sitting area — which Menocal adds can “be privatized for up to 150 people" and has its own private entrance. Hidden beneath the staircase is the Green Room, a VIP room and bar reserved for performers and their entourage. But la pièce de résistance at El Tucán is the main bar. Not because of the selection of cocktails hand-crafted by Gabriel Orta and Elad Zvi of Bar Lab, but because of the original Murano chandelier overlooking the bar, which was shipped in from Paris." written by LAURIE CHARLES.
