An old-school daytime barbershop (offering hot shaves, cuts, and trims and drinks) in the front room morph into a lively back-room cocktail bar at night. Miami Beach is the fourth city to host the speakeasy-meets-barbershop with outposts in Los Angeles and Chicago and the flagship in (of course) New York.
In the evening, enter through the hybrid shop's back door and discover a hidden and dimly lit lounge all suitably attired and well groomed - think plush pink and green seating, copper walls and terrazzo tables. Signature cocktails are paried with a selection of grilled cheese sandwiches - such as pepper Jack, smoked Gouda, habanero, and Thai chilies, and Spanish chorizo with Parmesan, smoked Gouda, and quince paste.
