The cocktail bar — located in the X Miami building on NE Fourth Street and accessible via a side door appropriately marked with an arrow sign that reads "COCKTAILS" on the breezeway that runs alongside the Metromover — is known for drinks by bartender Will Thompson — including martinis mixed by the pitcher for the table and his take on the jailbreak, made with bourbon, Japanese whisky, coffee rum, and bitters (and no Guinness stout). Chef/owner Carey Hynes also ups the bar-chow game. You won't miss beer nuts when you have Parker House rolls to pair with your drink. But the most genius part of the menu at Jaguar Sun is the pasta selection, each satisfying and soulful. Pasta as bar food? It's so obvious yet such a revelation you'll kick yourself for stuffing your face with onion rings and pub burgers all these years.
