The Grand Opening will feature complimentary hors d’oeuvres and cocktails from 9:00-11:00.
From the skilled tradesmen behind Dining Room and OLA comes The Blacksmith Saloon, a cocktail bar and live music venue open only on Fridays starting September 28. Once a week, The Blacksmith will take over The Well, bringing in their own staff, dÃ©cor and no-frills attitude to the Miami Beach night scene.
The Blacksmith is the answer to what many Miami locals have long been waiting for: a venue that features great cocktails, live music and quality bites without the typical South Beach fuss. The 4000 square foot, 2-room venue features dark wood, dim lighting, and comfortable living room seating. The Tiffany Room is lit by a larger than life stained glass ceiling and rounded out by a stage designed for live music. The White Elephant Room will feature the first of its kind DIY American Whiskey Bar where guests are invited to order one of three classic whiskey cocktails and design it themselves by selecting the components with the help of a professional barman.
Donâ€™t feel like going to the bar? No problem â€“ the bar will come to you. In addition to the whiskey bar, The Blacksmith will have tableside cocktail cart service. For a minimum spend of $50 per person, table seating is available whereby attendees can order their drinks directly from the mobile bar traveling around the room. Think table-side guacamole, but instead of avocado there will be liquor and in place of a busboy with a mustache, a professional bartender with a mustache will be at your service.
If one prefers the old-fashioned way of ordering a cocktail, a saloon-inspired cocktail menu will present some of the most innovate cocktails in Miami. Adding to his growing list of successful cocktail programs, Miamiâ€™s favorite bartender Chris Hudnall has once again raised the bar with the creation of The Blacksmithâ€™s drinks menu. Cocktails include Cactus Cooler: Michters Rye, Cactus Wine, Maple Honey, Lemon, Orange â€“ Rocks ($12); Oh Earl: Martin Millers Gin (Earl Grey Tea Infused), Cocci, Honey, Lime, Herbs â€“ Rocks ($12); and Blacksmith Flip: Gran Sierpe Pisco, Mandarine NapolÃ©on, Champagne, Cream, Sugar, Nutmeg â€“ Flute ($12).
For live music, local musician Buffalo Brown has customized The Blacksmithâ€™s house band to complement the space. The 6-piece group will play jazzy rock covers in the Tiffany Room equipped with female singers, an upright bass player and a horn section. As the nights go on as will the tunes. Every other week, The Blacksmith will invite up-and-coming local music acts to grace the stage.
To enliven the palate, a small plates menu ($12/item), created by Food and Wine Magazines Best New Chef in the Gulf Region Chef Horacio Rivadero (The Dining Room, OLA), will be available. Dishes include Filet Mignon Skewers with red beet chimichuri; Florida Gulf Shrimp Ceviche with pink grapefruit, black peppercorns, and pink sea salt; and a Chorizo Corndog with fresh ground mustard. Guests may also select from various vegetarian options.
