Radio Bar Pop-Up Goes Permanent
April 08, 2013 | by —LIANA LOZADA | Homepage
Menin Hotels has taken the reins at South of Fifth’s Radio Bar, transitioning it from a tucked away pop-up to a permanent neighborhood fixture. The owner of local hotels like Gale South Beach, the Regent Hotel, and Shelborne South Beach, among others, Menin will maintain Radio’s shabby-chic décor and radio tower marquee, while adding new elements such as an upgraded cocktail menu, snack options, happy hour specials, and Menin's own Pizza Bar. New cocktails by James Beard nominee Craig Schoettler, beverage director for Menin Hotels, include shareable punch bowls and house-made syrups. “The new beverage program complements the inviting atmosphere,” says Schoettler. “One would feel just as comfortable in flip flops or a business suit when sipping on a great rum or bourbon.” The newly improved and permanent Radio Bar is open seven days a week from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. 814 1st St., Miami Beach, 305-397-8382
