Atop The Langford Hotel, you'll hear the sound of people having a good time in this penthouse bar as soon as you exit the elevator. Although, weekends you may have to await you're turn in the lobby to join the fun crowd above.
Once inside you'll find a central bar with a well-worn zinc counter backing onto a large roof terrace. The overall look is urban industrial meets country cottage. The young clientele are young and here for a good time, fueled by some of the best cocktails in Miami.
The menu is brilliantly presented with two-tone photos come sketches accompanying each of the 14 cocktails. We particularly enjoyed the Lady Lindy (Vida mezcal, lavender syrup and bitters, lemon, Luxardo Maraschino and crème Yvette) and the namesake Pawnbroker (bourbon, apples, cinnamon, angostura and Cardamaro).
