The last place anyone expects to find anything remotely hip is Ocean Drive. But the renovated Betsy Hotel has done just that with its speakeasy space, B Bar. Described as a "jewel box," the lounge transports you to something akin to an obscure New York hot spot. Even if you stay at the Betsy, chances are you won't easily find the lounge. To arrive at the entrance, you must descend a small set of stairs, walk through what looks like a service hallway, and knock on a nondescript door. Once you are permitted to enter (not everyone is so lucky), you'll find the most gorgeously decorated space in all of the Magic City — a stark contrast to the safe design of the rest of the hotel. Let your eyes adjust to the dim lighting, and take in the dark hues, softly lit bar, and cozy yet elegant space. The real shocker here, though, is the low ceiling covered in reflective vinyl that can feel disorienting — particularly when a DJ turns up the bass and it vibrates.

If you like this place you should checkout some of the other places the B Bar's designer has done. Check our his bar and nightclub design. Really amazing work.

my friend Albert from the betsy told me about this place. I went with a few of my girl friends on a saturday and had a really good time. the space is classy, upscale but simple at the same time. I recommend it to anyone seeking a relaxed atmosphere with good music and great drinks. Ps. the black pearl is soo good.
