Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Kingdom, the friendly open air bar/eatery on Biscayne Boulevard is closed.

The place, which offered 20 kinds of beer and normal sports bar type chow, was a favorite on Main Street Miami. You could watch both high rollers and bums commiserate about everything from Dolphins losses to the high price of bean soup.

It won our award for best bar food in 2006. Even the Herald's usually staid Enrique Fernandez called the joint "raucous" and "fun."

I couldn't reach anybody at the place to ask about the closure because the phone is temporarily disconnected, according to the message on the line. But a source confirms the closure. More on this when we reach the owners.
