It’s a chic Miami spot and now, there is a new summer cocktail list to check out. The black walnut-paneled Matador Bar dominates the entrance of Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Matador Room, in the Edition Hotel Miami Beach. At the solid walnut floating bar at the center of the room, or in the lounge at a banquette covered in soft jewel-toned velvet, enjoy cocktails crafted by the Matador Bar’s tenured barmen with fresh, seasonal and local ingredients.
Here are the Matador Bar’s new summer drinks along with their classic cocktails:
