1216 Washington Ave., Miami Beach
Restaurateur Derek Gonzalez, founder of Goat Hospitality Group, has opened Pilo's Beach Club in Miami Beach.

Pilo's Beach Club takes its name from its sister establishments, Pilo's Street Tacos and Pilo's Tequila Garden, paying homage to Gonzalez's Aunt Pilo. For those inclined to a clandestine vibe, the establishment includes "Titi's Champagne Room," a speakeasy named after Gonzalez's son, Santiago.
