The Drawing Room: Albert Trummer to Bring "Cocktail Prescriptions" to South Beach

Albert Trummer's Drawing Room Bar & Lounge is scheduled to open at the Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach in October. The lounge, along with Morimoto South Beach, is destined to put the resort on Miami's culinary map.

Trummer, an Austrian-born mixologist, has worked with some of the best chefs, including David Bouley and Geoffrey Zakarian, and opened New York hot spots Apotheke and Theater Bar. The "apotheker" also opened Drogerie, a mad scientist's lab of libations at the Albion Hotel in SoBe last year. Drogerie has closed, with an announcement on its Facebook page that "Trummer's Drogerie Pharmacy Bar MIAMI is moving to a new Beach location this summer!!!"

Drawing Room's concept of "ancient remedy meets modern mixology" sounds similar to his Drogerie concept of elixirs shaken by bartenders in lab coats, but the new space will be grander.
