MIAMI – While Wynwood, Miami Design District – and, of course, South Beach – have a reputation for being home to some of Miami-Dade County’s best bars, there is one neighborhood that comes back to life on a regular basis, and it’s downtown Miami.
Years after Lost Boy Dry Goods and Mama Tried made waves in the local bar scene, here is Bar La Real, the newest bar and lounge in downtown Miami.
And what makes this waterhole different from the rest is that it’s located upstairs in the attic of a historic building – the former United States Post Office and Courthouse, built in 1912, located at 100 First Avenue.
Now new life has been breathed into the building. Bar La Real opened in October by White Feather Management, the team behind Wynwood’s El Patio and Mayami Wynwood. The bar and lounge promise to deliver a “tropiglam experience” and their mascot behind the opulent and tropical theme is none other than the peacock.
The peacock is so prevalent in their theme, in fact, that they even named the bar after the tropical bird. Peacock in Spanish translates directly to “pavo real”, where the “Real” of their name comes from.
“At Bar La Real, we walk the line between the elegant and the extravagant in everything we do,” says Bar La Real’s artistic director Carlos ‘Beto’ Perez Fleta. “From the atmosphere to the sound, everything is organized to please this Latin dandy, this true peacock of life who lives to satisfy his passions to feel, think, dance and drink.”
Customers can expect an elevated glamorous experience accompanied by handcrafted cocktails, such as a “gin-based Harakiri cocktail that infuses wasabi sake and rose caviar”, and classics such as their version à l ‘ old, a mojito and a Gin-tonic refreshment. In addition, champagne and wine will flow freely. For those who do not consume alcohol, “mocktails” are also on the menu.
When it comes to music, the group has founded a DJ collective called “La Real Academia de la Rumba Latina”, a DJ collective responsible for the conservation and reinterpretation of the Latin open format, so expect parties. themed events that will take place every week.
“Our mission has been the same from the start: to make Bar La Real a unique environment that can only be understood by having lived it. From music to mixology, every aspect of the experience is special and thoughtful in its execution, ”says Nicolas Hoyos, CEO.
And Bar La Real won’t be the only new addition to the historically protected building – five new concepts are coming to the building, which they call the “Republic Entertainment Bureau”.
