When it opened its doors in 2012, The Regent Cocktail Club at the Gale South Beach hotel on Miami Beach helped catapult the region into the national spotlight as a serious destination for cocktail enthusiasts. Its mix of Miami style, sophistication, service, and impeccable pours made it, inarguably, one of the city’s and country’s top cocktail spots. In December 2019 this trend-setting bar and lounge will relaunch at the Gale South Beach, moving into the larger, former Rec Room space. Featuring a new small plates menu and a revitalized cocktail list created in collaboration with none other than Miami’s best-known cocktail connoisseurs, Bar Lab, the Regent Cocktail Club will return as an iconic Miami institution.
Dubbed one of the Top Ten Hotel Bars in the World at New Orleans’ Tales of the Cocktail awards, The Regent Cocktail Club looks to expand upon its impressive list of accolades in an expansive new space that will retain the original’s sense of intimacy. The cocktail menu will stay rooted in the city’s Latin roots, offering tried and true Miami classics and a shaken, not stirred approach to the new. Designed as a perfect accouterment to the cocktails, a simple, but refined bar menu will be available.
Operated by LDV Hospitality, the owner of Scarpetta Restaurants and Dolce Italian, The Regent Cocktail Club poises itself as a true Miami Beach destination – a place for locals and visitors alike to unwind by sipping on craft cocktails, grabbing a bite to eat, and grooving to live music. The bar lounge will offer a schedule of musical programming featuring local bands and artists, Wednesday through Saturday from 8 PM to 10 PM. A house DJ will be spinning tunes on Friday and Saturday nights from 10 PM until close.
“We are so excited to reopen the Regent in our beloved Rec Room space. When we opened both the Regent and Rec Room back in 2012, the beach welcomed us with open arms as a genuine, carefree, community social hub, and we are ready to run that back!” says John Meadow, President, and Founder of LDV Hospitality.
Drawing inspiration from its tropical surroundings, the plush space has a capacity of 175 guests and offers a semi-private lounge for parties up to 25. The bar & lounge can be accessed through a staircase behind the host stand of Dolce Italian restaurant. The Regent Cocktail Club will be open daily from 6 PM to 2 AM. It is located in the Gale South Beach, 1690 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach. www.regentcocktailclub.com.
