MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA – Tonight, Tuesday, October 29th, Swizzle Rum Bar & Drinkery at the Stiles Hotels on 1120 Collins Avenue is going all out with a Great Gatsby and roaring 20’s theme party from 11PM until 2AM. The original team from the celebrated Employees Only are back with an alluring pre-Halloween party.
Costumes are strongly encouraged for this night full of 1920’s debauchery, featuring over 150 kinds of rum, and many other unique drinks and cocktails. Former Employees Only bartender, Candice Coy and Redemption Rye Whiskey brand ambassador, Helen Kim, will be in charge of creating cocktail magic.
Jesus Perez, Partner at Swizzle Rum Bar & Drinkery, commented, “Candice Coy came up with the ‘Pecan Daisy’, which consists of Redemption Rye Whiskey and a home-made Pecan Orgeat shaken with Maple, Honey, and Fresh Lemon Juice.”
He continued, “Helen Kim’s creation will be a take on the classic Boulevardier. Gatsby’s Farewell will have redemption Rye Whiskey, stirred with amaro and chocolate.”
As far as the theme, Perez shared, “The Great Gatsby theme certainly ties in with Halloween, I think it made sense with the identity of our bar, as well as the partnership with Pre-Prohibition Rye Revival Redemption Whiskey; flapper dresses, bow ties and whiskey.”
Promoters say the Swizzle Rum Bar at the Stiles Hotels is an intimate and sophisticated bar that recently opened its doors in September with a “New York City meets Miami vibe and drinks that appeal to both the casual consumer and the cocktail connoisseur.”
It has 24 seats in the bar area, plus thirty seats in an adjacent lounge, all with an outdoor patio by the pool with thirty more seats available.
Bar bites are also available to wash down the swanky menu of modern and classic cocktails. Happy Hour is daily from 7PM until 10PM, and the bar opens daily from 7PM until 5AM.
