Lilt Lounge: Downtown Miami’s Hidden Gem

Tucked away inside Downtown Miami’s Kimpton EPIC Hotel, there’s a lounge that’s home to one of the most passionate bartenders you’ll ever meet. At Lilt Lounge, Spencer Taliaferro takes his craft seriously, and after hearing him talk about it, don’t be surprised if you feel just as passionate.

During a recent tasting at Lilt, that’s exactly what happened. Wowed by his knowledge and drinks, we left Lilt with a greater appreciation of cocktails and rediscovered a bar that we hadn’t really visited since its grand opening. Shame on us for taking so long to come back.

Pubbelly Burger Week Pays a Visit to Downtown Miami

Last summer, we had a chance to take part in Pubbelly’s popular PB Burger series with fellow food writers and influencers. Each of us worked with Pubbelly’s Jose Mendin to create a custom burger that would sit on the menu alongside the restaurant’s signature items.

If you missed out on the series last time, you’re in luck: It’s Pubbelly Burger Week at Downtown Miami’s Pubbelly Station. An extension of the two-month summer series, Pubbelly Burger Week features 10 different burgers for the taking. This time, though, Chef Mendin worked with Chefs Guillermo Concha and Craig Wolsk on the burgers — and they’re only here for one week.

La Feria by Mercado de San Miguel Returns to Downtown

La Feria - Bar

In fall 2015, La Feria by Mercado de San Miguel set up shop in Downtown to bring a taste of Spain to the 305. Based on a similar Spanish food market in Madrid, the popup stayed put for a few months before going on tour and expanding the experience to others. This past October, La Feria 2.0 made its return to Miami, bringing back much of the same delicious food plus several fun additions.
