On Across the Bar, we look for the best cocktail spots across the country. Hosted by industry expert and cocktail enthusiast, Paul Barron, this show brings insight into beer, wine, and spirits trends so that you can see first-hand where the bar scene is heading.
On this episode, Paul visits The Anderson in the up and coming MiMo District of Miami. The Anderson opened its doors in the Spring for 2016 by the creators of the popular brand Broken Shaker and was honored with the recent accolade of one of Esquire’s Best Bars in America for 2018. The Broken Shaker team is known for setting trends and the revamp at The Anderson shows how in tune this group is with the current cocktail scene.
Dave Simmons, the bar manager at The Anderson, walks Paul through the new cocktail and food menu that has an interesting twist, 1980s style. The Andersons’ interior design details, food menu, music, and cocktails capture the essence of the '80s– Hey, everything was better in the '80s, right? Well, maybe not the crime rate in Miami.
With cocktails like “Hey You Guys!” and “Ticket to Paradise” us '80s babies feel right at home. Pair that with the new menu which elevates the typical bar/food experience. Guests can experience a variety of plates, including the Fried Rice that comes with coconut basmati, sweet plantains, and crab, pork, chicken or veggies; or those looking for a vegan-friendly option can go with the Choripan, made with Atlas vegan chorizo or Proper chorizo, chimi-aioli and crispy onions served on a baguette; or stay close to your Miami roots with the Cuban Quesadilla with roasted pork, chihuahua cheese, ham, pickles and mustard.
Oh, and don’t forget to check out the back patio which features an authentic Caribbean rum shack!
