Nestled in the basement of the Betsy Hotel, B Bar seems out of place on a strip known for cheesy bars and pushy hostesses selling the catch of the day. B Bar could easily be located in midtown Miami or, even better, Manhattan. It oozes Wynwood and Lower East Side cool, so it's easy to forget the tourist destination lurking outside. But what makes this bar a jewel is a strict door policy that keeps the riffraff out and away from A-listers. If you're able to gain entry, you'll experience a dark, contemporary d├ęcor glowing under ethereal lighting. The Callin Fortis-designed space's true wonder is the vinyl ceiling that mirrors the entire space, causing a bit of disorientation - or is that just the cocktails?
