The Broken Shaker: First Pop-Up Cocktail Bar in Miami Beach
Best Pop-up Bar 2012: The Broken Shaker
Best Bartender 2012: Gabriel Orta

At Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans, The Broken Shaker's Gabriel Orta and Elad Zvi told us that The Broken Shaker would reopen this fall somewhere in Miami. We now have the details.

The Broken Shaker will reopen in November back at the Indian Creek Hotel,

which is currently undergoing renovations. In addition, Orta and Zvi are taking

over a small 1920s beach house next door to the hotel, which they are turning

into a full-service restaurant, complete with an upstairs lounge.

"We really didn't expect to return to the Indian Creek Hotel. That wasn't our plan at all, but things just fell into place," said Orta about the Broken Shaker's return to the beach.


on their original Broken Shaker pop-up concept, the Bar Lab guys will

feature a full-scale dinner menu designed to be paired with their

hand-crafted cocktails.

Expect drinks using fresh herbs grown

in the restaurant's garden, as well as locally grown produce in the

dishes. Orta and Zvi are not releasing the name of the chef

they've tapped to head the kitchen yet, but expect a familiar face known for

inventive takes on traditional pub grub.

The theme of this new,

improved (and permanent) Broken Shaker? Classic American cocktail

lounge. The kind that might find Bogart and Bacall at the bar, flirting over a


November never sounded so good.
