Miami-themed Kush at Clevelander Sports Bar aims to lure locals to iconic Ocean Drive location – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports
The Clevelander is one of South Beach’s most famous hotels, and of course tourists love it too. But a restaurant owner wants to bring locals back with a new sports bar concept that only true Miamians can enjoy. Deco’s Alex Miranda, who enjoys a cold beer at any bar, has the details.
Ray Finkel? Where am I?
Jim Carrey (as Ace Ventura): “I’m in Psychoville and Finkle is the mayor. Where is Dan Marine?
Relax, Ventura. It’s right here – inside Kush in Clevelander, a new sports bar and restaurant at the iconic Ocean Drive hotel!
Bruce Siegel: “Anyone coming to South Florida, wherever, you know, you gotta stop in Clevelander.”
But sorry, tourists. This CRF graduate wants to take over SoBe.
Matt Kuscher: “It’s a Miami-themed sports bar, and if you’re not from Miami, you probably won’t get it.”
Matt Kuscher is the mastermind behind some of the burgers etc. the most popular and award-winning in Miami, Hialeah and now South Beach.
Alexander: “The vibes are there and the food is always on point.”
Like this bang bang shrimp.
Alexander: “I love seafood, and it hit me today.”
And does anyone else fancy their exclusive Kaptain Kush, brewed by Tank in Doral?
Matt Kuscher: “So right now, because it’s so early, you’re probably the only person in the world drinking this beer.”
Uh, thanks for calling me, Matt.
Matt Kuscher: “And then we also have our version of an Aperol spritz called ‘I Still Call It Joe Robbie’.”
And check out this quote “Cocaine Cowboys” director Billy Corben made famous.
Matt Kuscher: “‘Miami is a sunny place for sleazy people.'”
But why would he say that?
Alex Miranda: “Yeah, we’ll be parking soon. See you later! Two more, please!
And brother, it’s like super Miami here, literally.
Matt Kuscher: “Miami has its own language, and most cities don’t, and I feel like a translator of that language for the rest of the world.”
Alexander: “The Kush Cubano, with the fries, the pulled pork. I’m so excited to dig right now.
Alex Miranda: “Yeah, but you’ve already eaten, haven’t you? You’re not that hungry.
Alexandre: “No, I’m really hungry.”
Alex Miranda: “OK, well, I’m hungry, so goodbye.”
But also art.
Matt Kuscher: “I have Kimbo Slice. The Don Shula highway there.
Matt Kuscher: “A unique piece by Dan Marino/David Hasselhoff that you will never see anywhere in the world.”
But not so much… Florida.
Alex Miranda: “I know you’re from Florida.”
Matt Kuscher: “Uh, I’m not.”
Alex Miranda: “You are absolutely from Florida.”
Matt Kuscher: “But I’m from Miami, though.”
Alex Miranda: “Good. Miami, Florida?”
Matt Kuscher: “No. Miami-Dade County.
Alex Miranda: “Florida”.
But, with their 20 TVs and even a Pitbull-worthy VIP room, everyone is welcome, even from Florida.
Matt Kuscher: “Just do good things, and do them well, and it’s going to be fine.”
