In early 2012, Gabe Orta and Elad Zvi (the boys behind Bar Lab) and Roy Alpert (of Sydell Group), launched a Broken Shaker pop up at what used to be The Indian Creek Hotel. Post renovation in late 2012, the hotel became the Freehand and Broken Shaker became not only a permanent fixture at the hostel, but also one of Miami's most popular hangouts. The Roman & Williams designed spot serves up small plates made using ingredients from their onsite garden or from local purveyors and, of course, tons of handcrafted cocktails, for which they've gained many accolades. Most recently, Bar Manager is Gui Jaroschy was named on Food & Wine's list of Best New Mixologists 2014 and Broken Shaker came it at #22 in The World's 50 Best Bars 2014.
