Bottled Blonde bar and restaurant to open in Miami, Florida
There are things you need to live a happy life. Among them, pizzas, beer and a tower of mimosa.
You’ll find all of the above, and more, at the new outdoor Bottled Blonde Pizzeria + Beer Garden, opening later this month in Wynwood.
It will be the first Miami location for the Arizona-based concept of the Evening Entertainment Group, which has restaurants in Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth and Scottsdale, Arizona. Two more locations will soon be added in Las Vegas and Nashville.
“We are excited to expand the Bottled Blonde brand into the Miami/Wynwood market,” said Les Corieri, co-founder of Evening Entertainment. “Miami has always been at the top of our list, and we believe our brand aligns perfectly with this beautiful, fun, and fast-paced city.”
Like many Wynwood hotspots, the 9,000-square-foot spot, a hybrid of Italian restaurant and German beer garden, has two personalities. During the day, the 49 TVs and two 24-foot walls of projectors indicate this will be a sports fan‘s dream for college and professional sports as well as UFC bouts.
Eat seafood or salads, pasta or pizza (there is a new pizza specialty every month). Or err on the side of caution and stock up on finger foods like chicken wings, truffle fries and pepperoni pizza rolls. Watch the game. Sip a craft beer. Cool down until your team returns the ball.
At night, however, the vibe kicks into overdrive with high-tech sound and lighting systems, transforming Bottled Blonde into a nightclub with VIP tables and bottle service. Each month, Bottled Blonde will offer a new signature cocktail.
And then there’s this tower of mimosa, 100 ounces of bubbles, juice and pure joy, with three bottles of champagne in each tower for $80. Your choice of juice. They’re half price before 4 p.m. on Sundays, so if you’re there to take advantage of the brunch menu, you might want to order one for the table. This way, even if your team loses, you won’t be sad.
