Miami is filled with culinary delight and cocktail deconstruction. With so much energy, it can be difficult to escape the city madness, even at the beach. But cross a short bridge in the Magic City’s Brickell neighborhood and revival awaits in Brickell Key. Its main resident? The 5-star waterfront Mandarin Oriental. Inside, you’ll find MO Bar & Lounge, where city lights pour in via the floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and where local and traveling sophisticates are offered a combination of both traditional and innovative mixology.
Catch a sneak peek in the video above, where Bar Manager Steve Minor serves up a steaming Smoked Cuban Manhattan (in a pot, no less). And be sure to look out for the full “Across the Bar” episode, coming soon!
