Pedestrian friendly Española Way is getting three new restaurants when Esmé Miami Beach (1438 Washington Avenue) hotel debuts this spring on the popular South Beach street. Spearheaded by Infinity Hospitality alongside the Lost Boy team, who are also bringing Tropezón to the area, together they’ll debut El Salón, Bar Pintxo, and The Roof at Esmé in March 2021.
All three spots will be housed in the new 145-room Esmé Miami Beach hotel and Esmé Village. El Salón, located in the Esmé Village along the main paseo, will serve a menu of Miami-favorite dishes like arepas, empanadas, chicharron, and in the evenings transform into an upscale cocktail bar which will serve classic cocktails with proprietary liquor blends.
Down the paseo is where Bar Pintxo, a modern interpretation of a Spanish pintxo bar, will be found. Pintxo means “spike” or “skewer” and this bar will offer a rotating array of snacks on sticks like octopus with smoked paprika or an anchovy, pepper, and olive skewer, along with Spanish beers, Txakoli wines, and Basque cider served with its traditional theatrical pouring style. It also plans to feature weekly activations of artists, musicians, and chef take-overs.
The Roof at Esmé will feature a bar and restaurant, a pool, cabanas, and a wellness space. In the daytime, it’ll offer offer a healthy-ish menu of bowls, salads, sandwiches, along with cold-pressed juices and sangrias, while in the evenings it’ll turn into a rooftop bar with large format cocktails dubbed “spirited jugs” and new takes on classic cocktails like the French 75.
All three properties and the hotel are slated to debut in March 2021.
