The Regent Cocktail Bar
Riding the wave of enthusiasm for subtlety and elegance, a beautiful, sophisticated cocktail bar slap bang in the middle of SoBe. It took the revamping of the iconic Gale to allow this misfit on the more typically fluorescent strip but just be grateful’s it’s arrived. The Regency has an old world, clubby feel to it with oodles of wood panelling and leather armchairs reinforcing a sense of gentlemen’s club – that’s private members club rather than strippers. Exquisitely crafted old-school cocktails rule here with a very small and discreet menu of all time classics, think more New York Sour and Mai Tai than anything with a fruit kebab hanging out the top.
Take the time to stand at the bar and watch these master craftsmen at work using delightfully old fashioned mixing goblets and an eclectic array of antique glasses.
