One of Miami’s best bars, The Regent Cocktail Club, has relaunched after moving into the larger, former Rec Room space inside the Gale South Beach hotel. The Regent’s cocktail menu was also revamped by the renowned Bar Lab mixologists. Getting to the trendsetting bar and lounge’s new location is a speakeasy-like experience. You now enter through Dolce Italian restaurant’s entrance, then, head downstairs, behind the host stand, and follow the neon signage.
The expansive new, dark and sultry cocktail lounge, inspired by warm Havana nights, retains the original’s sense of intimacy. But now, the Regent serves up a live music lineup through the weekend, featuring local artists and DJs, and a menu of bar bites. Bites include Cheese or Yucca Croquettes with fig jam, Chicken Empanadas and Beef Empanadas, which are delish complements to their classic cocktails made with a new shaken, not stirred approach.
