Downtown Miami’s budding social scene is welcoming a new nightlife destination as the Adrienne Arsht Center and Bacardi U.S.A., Inc. introduce the new BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Lounge. The Lounge, which is located at street level in the Adrienne Arsht Center’s iconic Carnival Tower, joins PRELUDE by Barton G. as the second food and beverage destination to debut at the Adrienne Arsht Center in less than a year.

The nation’s first stand-alone venue themed after the top-valued and fastest-growing premium gin brand in the world, the BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Lounge will be open to the general public Tuesday-Sunday starting at 5 pm beginning October 19 during the Broadway in Miami run of DREAMGIRLS. Prior to that day, the Lounge will be operational on performance dates.

“Much more than an amenity for our patrons, the BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Lounge is an important step forward in the Adrienne Arsht Center’s role as both a full-service entertainment destination and a catalyst for economic growth in our neighborhood,” said M. John Richard, President and CEO of the Adrienne Arsht Center. “The Lounge is certain to become a favorite for our patrons and local residents alongside PRELUDE, our widely-acclaimed restaurant. These two properties are signature elements of the Adrienne Arsht Center experience in Miami’s new town square.”

The Adrienne Arsht Center teamed up with Bacardi executives on September 1 to host a ‘sneak preview’ event that showcased the Lounge to members of the media and special guests. The hundreds who turned out enjoyed specialty BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® cocktails and food by Performing Arts Catering. John Richard and Bacardi USA CEO John Esposito delivered brief welcome remarks and led guests in a toast to Miami’s newest hotspot.

Whether plans call for a pre- or post-show drink, an after-work cocktail, or drinks before a night out on the town, the BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Lounge is sure to emerge as a gathering place for Downtown Miami’s growing residential and commercial population, as well as theater patrons. Menu offerings include a selection of specialty cocktails crafted by award-winning BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® master mixologist Milo Rodriguez, plus a selection of light bites by Performing Arts Catering.

The Lounge is located at the corner of 13th Street and Biscayne Blvd., adjacent to the Sanford and Dolores Ziff Ballet Opera House. Visit www.arshtcenter.org for more details.
