Miami Is Getting A New, Boozy Ventanita This Weekend!

“La Ventanita” pop-up will be opening its doors at Brickell City Center this coming Friday!

Atención Miamians, the Magic City is getting a brand new ventanita and this one comes with a side of refreshing cocktails! To celebrate South Florida’s ventanita culture and love for exceptional rum cocktails, Brugal 1888,  a premium rum crafted in the Dominican Republic, is launching a brand new pop-up series that will see its ventanita bring the flair and flavor of the Dominican Republic to four different neighborhoods across Miami.

Brugal’s La Ventanita will be kicking things off this coming Sunday, September 19, at Brickell City Center where it will remain until September 29. Where will it go next? It’s yet to be determined as the coming locations will be kept secret until they open! But don’t worry, we’ll make sure to find out all the chisme for you and let you know about the new locations as soon as we can.

Serving as equal parts coffee shop and swanky evening rum bar, during the day you’ll be able to enjoy freshly brewed cafecito as well as a wonderful selection of treats from Dos Croquetas such as Café Con Leche or Cafecito alongside a pastelito, with flavors including Guava & Cheese topped with a coconut-infused glaze and toasted coconut, or Picadillo & Plantain.

But if you choose to go after 4 p.m., you’ll find La Ventanita transformed into the upbeat Brugal 1888 Rum Bar, a sensory experience teaching guests about the distillery-to-cocktail process behind this unique spirit. Master mixologists will be whipping craft cocktails left and right such as Brugal’s signature “Don Nano’s Favorite” made with Brugal 1888 and a coconut water ice sphere, or the “La Ventanita,” a Brugal 1888 coffee-infused cocktail!


Guests will also be able to enjoy a variety of immersive experiences that will bring the Dominican Republic to life in Miami, including rum tasting classes, guest bartender evenings with top local bartenders, domino tournaments and much more.

As mentioned, Brugal’s La Ventanita will be opening on Sunday, September 19, and will be set on the second floor Garden Deck of Brickell City Center, directly across from ZARA. The coffee shop will be opening from 1 to 3 p.m. and switching into the Brugal 1888 rum bar at 4 until 9 p.m. every night. But if you want to attend don’t forget to make your reservations ahead of time through their website here!
