It was with great sadness that Miamians watched the Broken Shaker, the beloved pop-up bar from Bar Lab’s Gabriel Orta and Elad Zvi, close last June. Now it’s back, and for good this time, with a permanent space in the recently renovated Freehand Miami (previously Indian Creek Hotel). Opening just in time for Art Basel, Broken Shaker has kept its artisanal bar concept, with Orta and Zvi sourcing herbs from the venue’s onsite vegetable garden, created with the help of Farmer Jay Pure Organics. Beyond drinks, Broken Shaker will also offer a full-service restaurant helmed by GastroPod and Pickle People’s Jeremiah Bullfrog, slated to open in early 2013. The menu will feature modern small dishes purposely paired with handcrafted, seasonal cocktails. Other drink highlights include a variety of homemade fresh tonics, vermouth, and ginger craft beers. With these rich boozy offerings, you can celebrate a resurrection that has nothing to do with church. Freehand Miami, 2727 Indian Creek Dr., Miami Beach, 305-531-2727
