|The Corner in Downtown Miami|
When my friend, MPR, who just moved back to Miami from San Francisco asked me where to go for a real cocktail, luckily I knew just the place. First, I knew exactly what she meant when she said “real” cocktail. We’re not talking your watered-down, well drinks people. You know the kind… the one where you think to yourself, is this really Kettle One or did they jip me?
I’m talking about real mixology (the art and science of cocktails) where mixologists (think bartenders with science degrees) take their time in building their drinks menu and you find ingredients like fresh ginger, basil and raspberries. That’s what you’ll find at The Corner, one of my favorite new bars.
Sure, the neighborhood is major sketch (did I mention its next door to Space and Gold Rush) but it makes for great people watching and who doesn’t love to reminisce of the crazier club days? Anyhow, thanks to my girl Milhead, who celebrated her Dirty 30 here, I now have a new favorite spot.
Must try the Plantation and Cham-WOW. Stay away from the Death in the Afternoon and don’t say I didn’t warn you.
PS. They serve food too!
