A Different Kind of Happy Hour

MISO Symphony performing as part of the Palm Court Performance Series in the Miami Design District

 

On Friday at  5:30 Palm Court, the principal outdoor courtyard in the Design District, was standing room only. People of all ages, and a local and international crowd, were seated around a stage with the full complement of The Miami Symphony Orchestra that abutted the iconic Fly’s Eye dome by Buckminster Fuller. Others looked over from the two story balcony through sea green glass, beside shops from the biggest names in luxury.And still others were just listening to the music from the café that’s part of the new Estefan restaurant. Everyone was loving it, this different Miami happy hour. And The Palm Court Performance Series is free. Plus, thanks to the new restaurant and to bars strategically placed around the courtyard, you can enjoy a mojito, glass of wine, or other beverage while listening to the musical sounds.

Saffron Supper Club

The garden at Mina’s Mediterraneo

 

Lifestyle experiences in travel, food, drinking – you name it, are a major trend. Dining experiences have been around for around five years, some “underground”, such as Cobaya where the venue is a surprise, others that revolve around visiting “name” chefs, and still others with a theme like “Diner en Blanc” where guests dress in white, the décor is white, and you bring a picnic. The latest one on the scene in the category of Miami supper clubs is the Saffron Supper Club with several novel twists – it explores the food and culture of Persia and the Middle East and there’s a cultural component such as poetry, music, performance or storytelling. There are two dinners coming up in April, so you can give the club a try soon. Read Full Post & Comments »
