Miami Beach is in for a New Year's treat. Panther Coffee has opened inside the Betsy Hotel on Ocean Drive in South Beach.

Through a partnership between the Miami-based business and the Betsy, Panther Coffee is now available at the hotel's lounge space called the Conservatory, which prior to Panther offered Latin-inspired bites and cocktails.

Situated inside the Betsy's Art Deco Wing, previously the former lobby of the historic Carlton Hotel, Panther Coffee is open seven days a week from morning till night. Facing Collins Avenue, the space is more like a coffee lounge than Panther's locations in Wynwood, Coconut Grove, Sunset Harbour, and the Upper Eastside.

With a wooden and granite coffee bar at the center, the space is designed with gold, silver, and copper hues, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. As at the former Conservatory, various tables and cozy chairs are scattered about. Customers are welcome to visit the shop for a quick breakfast or afternoon coffee or even use it as a temporary workspace. Wi-Fi is complimentary.

Behind the bar, baristas serve Panther's signature hot, iced, and nitro blends ($3 and up). The Betsy's executive chef, Danny Ganem, is behind a selection of coffee-shop snacks such as sandwiches, pastries, croissants, and sweet monkey bread ($4 to $8).

Also available is a lineup of Jojo Teas; four beers on tap courtesy of Wynwood Brewing Company, Dogfish Head, and Cigar City Brewing; and select wines by the glass ($3 to $18).

Panther Coffee joins other food and drink concepts at the Betsy, including chef Laurent Tourondel's steakhouse — LT Steak & Seafood — and pizzeria and gelateria the Alley.
