You never appreciate what you have until its gone. Sorry to report that downtown Miami dive bar/lounge PS14 (28 NE 14th Street) will be graduating from its 14th Street locale after October 31. But it's not because of any financial troubles, the owners have simply decided not to renew the lease on the space.
Co-owner Barbara Basti, of Poplife, explains that it was just time and the place has run its course. "PS14 became the step-kid in comparison to our other projects."
Those other projects include the Poplife at Electric Pickle, Dirty Hairy at LIV and Disco-Net at Shore Club parties, as well as Ecco restaurant and lounge in downtown. Basti also admits that they are working on another project which will hopefully happen "sooner rather than later."

"I've had so much fun [at PS14], I feel pretty nostalgic about it," adds Basti.
