These new offerings paired with the opening of MO Bar + Lounge will allow us to remain at the forefront of Miami’s dynamic culinary industry.”

The hotel has tapped expert mixologist, Angelo Vieira, formerly of The Florida Room and Sunset Lounge, to create cocktails with rare spirits and with homemade infusions and fresh fruit liquors  from timeless classics with a fresh twist, such as the French Martini with vodka, crème de framboise, fresh pineapple, fresh lime and raspberry  to the more intriguing variety, such as the New York Sour with whiskey, lemon, simple syrup, egg white, and red wine float.
