Bar Lab is at it again, this time planning to open Miami Beach's first cocktail pop-up bar.
The Broken Shaker is set to open in about three weeks at the Indian Creek Hotel on Collins Avenue at 28th Street -- for only six months. We spoke with Bar Lab's Gabriel Orta, who didn't want to let the entire cat out of the bag about the Broken Shaker just yet.
What he did say, though, was quite intriguing -- especially because he and partner Elad Zvi are notorious for making innovative and delicious cocktails.
Orta says the Broken Shaker will feature farm-fresh cocktails using locally sourced ingredients. The popup will also make its own
ice in various forms, depending on what your cocktail demands,
such as cubed, crushed, or shaved.
We're especially looking forward to the Tiki Bar brunch every Saturday
and Sunday. "Well, it's actually a sunset lunch, since it's going to
start about 4," Orta says.
The vibe? "Very laid-back," he says while describing a space with multiple spots to lounge with your crafted cocktail.
Though he's not ready to reveal specific drinks on the menu, Orta does say he's looking forward to letting his creative flag fly at the
Broken Shaker. He had us at "sunset tiki brunch."
