GNO Just Got Better at THE FLAT Miami!

Miami Beach's THE FLAT just cooked up a cocktail menu that will make you cry!

Kinda stuck on what to do on a Girl's Night Out? Well, we've got just the treat for you! The Flat is hosting a ladies night Thursday evenings, starting October 24, where girls get to drink and do live karaoke. From 9-10pm, ladies will be treated to gratis glasses of champagne, and can get $10 champagne flutes or $90 champagne bottles thoughout the evening.

But its not all about the ladies! Everyone could have an awesome time at this trendy dig.

The Flat has concocted a cocktail menu for any one ready to take the night by storm. For a very special occasion, this South Beach lounge offers a great deal on a 3-course drink menu. It starts with an edgy martini that puts the traditional Cosmopolitan to shame-- Suite 180. Then the First Date, a rich mix of gin, honey, and lemon- hearty and smooth. And caps off with the Jesserna, a bourbon based drink that leaves the pallet craving for more which includes raspberries, vanilla, and Averna Italian liqueur.

Think it will be a bit pricey? Well its not. This special is only $33. One thing is for sure, it's just the right amount to have a great time! Not too much, not too little. And if you want any recommendations, just ask our friend Milos. This Serbian hottie will make everything from scratch and with care to ensure that you have the absolute best time.

"The Flat is sexy, plush, and best of all, its exclusive. We have the best lounge in South Beach, there's definitely nothing like it, " says General Manager Dyllan Kay.

And he's right. There isn't many places with the stunning decor this place has. It's chic, slightly reclusive, and far from the Ocean Drive chaos.

Dolce's Apertivo Hour and Sunset Dinner Menu

For just having opened a little more than a month ago, Dolce has been getting quite a lot of attention as one of the tastiest Italian restaurants in Miami Beach (read review here). Of course, it comes as no surprise knowing that the restaurant is the brainchild of LDV Hospitality, the people who brought us Scarpetta. Offering a sexy ambiance within the newly remodeled 1940’s Gale South Beach hotel, Dolce has become one of the best places for classic Italian cocktails and classic Italian fare by Chef Paolo Dorigato. For those who have yet to try it out, Dolce is giving the perfect incentive as it launches its Apertivo Happy Hour and Sunset Prix Fixe dinner menu today.

Pamper Your Tummy at Pampano Botaneria

Latin cuisine is all the rage these days and there's no better place to enjoy it than at Pampano Botaneria. The small downstairs brother to Richard Sandoval's Pampano, this smaller, more casual half of the restaurant is the way to go. This dimly lit, romantic setting makes anyone want to hunker down for a feast. The best part of this place is that all menu items are served tapas-style...which means you don't have to pick and choose what you want, you can try everything!

DAILY BITES
SAIA Social Hour

SAIA, Fort Lauderdale Beach's bastion of chic Asian cuisine paired with perhaps the best cocktails in Broward, kicked off its daily happy hour, dubbed Social Hour, last week with a very affordable selection of sushi, Asian appetizers, and beautifully crafted cocktails. Serious cocktail drinkers with an affinity for all things vintage will gravitate to selections from SAIA's Old's Cool collection, including a unique spin on the Negroni containing Punt e Mes and Aperol in addition to the traditional gin, as well as a silky smooth Sazerac with rye whiskey, cognac, bitters, and an absinthe rinse. Drinks from the Starlet Collection tend to be on the sweeter side, and the libations evoke the personalities and charisma of the heroines for which they are named, like Grace Kelly and Elizabeth Taylor. The aptly named Bettie Page surprises with a slight sting in the back of the throat from fresh jalapeño after the flavors of blueberry, cranberry, and lime have subsided.

Sapore di Sale is 'Magical'

Okay Magic Mike fans - we know there's lots of you out there - Channing Tatum was spotted at the bar at Da Mikele last week during their weeknight aperitivo hour...and we can't blame him.

The best summer party that doesn't take place on the beach is Sapore di Sale, the summer aperitivo at Da Mikele by Luzzo's. Sapore di Sale, meaning a taste of salt, is a classic Italian tune, perfect for a party.

Bar Ploys 101: Trivia Night

The beginning of the week is a proverbial “no man’s land” in terms of revelry. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday typically present rather bleak prospects for the gregarious reveler. Whether it’s due to priority (rationing the wildness ‘till the weekend), financial strains, or an inculcated sanctity for the “early week”—most bars/pubs remain barren dens of hooch and silence during the week. In an effort to combat this desolation, bar owners have been relegated to rifling through their crafty “bag o’ tricks” to create an enticing evening for the potential reveler.
