Loews Miami Beach Hotel is nodding to the past and serving up locally, handcrafted cocktails with The Bellhop Bar by Loews Hotels, a retrofitted steamer trunk packed with bespoke beverages stored in antique apothecary-style bottles. The Bellhop Bar is on display at Bar Collins – the hotel’s lobby bar and restaurant – from 5-7pm daily. It’s available now through mid-January 2019, allowing guests to choose from local, pre-batched libations, as well as domestically-produced wine, to be poured, mixed and served on demand.
The Bellhop Bar by Loews Hotels was born out of the success of the brand’s unique beverage concept, The Traveller Bar, which ended its two plus year run this past January, and drew inspiration from “the golden age of the cocktail era.” The launch of this promotion continues to signal the traveler past, where travelers would pack their belongings in wardrobe trunks for extended journeys.
Guests are able to walk up to the new The Bellhop Bar and choose from two pre-batched cocktails that use Angel’s Envy Bourbon or Hangar One Vodka. Additionally, a red and sparkling wine are featured, The Count by Buena Vista Winery, which is the oldest winery in the United States and Conundrum, one of the most recognized sparkling wines on the market. Creating a surprise and delight for guests and locals, every night at 5 pm, Loews Miami Beach Hotel will conduct an opening bell ritual to announce the bar is now in service.
“The Bellhop Bar is an homage to the days of Henry Flagler’s Florida East Coast Railway and the adventures of travelers from eras ago,” said Michael Murray, Director of Food & Beverage for Loews Miami Beach Hotel. “Through specially curated cocktails reflecting the luster and Art Deco style of Miami Beach, we’re able to offer guests a locally-handcrafted experience that celebrates the rich heritage of our vibrant city via this one-of-a-kind cocktail promotion.”
Here’s a look at the locally infused Loews Miami Beach Hotel libations created especially for The Bellhop Bar by Loews Hotels:
