A nostalgically named Better Days Bar is popping up this Friday, August 8, inside a thrift shop at the 500 Brickell building. Owner Challo Schott, a man who's spent over a decade working various scenes in the hospitality industry, says:
The idea to Better Days was inspired by an image I'd collected about a man in various stages of his life and the happiness he'd shared in those four images with friends and family. Many folks tend to hold on to the past as their best days while also looking to the future for more, when some of our better days are the ones we are living now.As for why he chose Miami for own project, Schott raves, "Miami is at the forefront of culture, arts, music, and cool and there's no better place to try to drive a stake into than the epicenter of it all."
Promising "fine drinks at fair prices," the bar will serve up a revolving menu of craft cocktails and beers, often on special for Brickell residents. Think Monday through Friday happy hour specials with half off wells, calls, drafts and wines; and a weekly industry (for those in the service, salon or retail industry) night when the entire check is half off; as well as nightly industry discounts of up to 30%. Cheap and boozy? Yes, please. Oh, and their grand opening comes with complimentary cocktails and beers, from 9 p.m. to midnight.
