We spoke about Twelve Lounge earlier this week, but now for some visual proof this place has scrubbed itself clean of Hed Kandi's douchiness. Black Betty is the lounge's newest Tuesday night party, and with a little help from the Overthrow gang, this might be reason enough to go out on a weeknight. As always, our photographer Lex Hernandez skipped sleeping in order to bring us a glimpse into this new South Beach venue.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
