Opens right beside Novecento, It Espresso Lounge becomes a new exciting addition at Midtown. It Espresso Lounge becomes a delightful discovery of chic Italian lifestyle paired with Latin American flair. Its creative use of 5,000 square feet (both indoor and outdoor) comfortably accommodates 200 guests. The venue’s “convertible concept” is what takes it from artisanal espresso bar by day to mixologist cocktail lounge by night. The playful space features an original 1959 Fiat Cinquecento that has been repurposed as an eye-catching DJ booth/car to be driven by both resident and guest DJ’s seven days a week; Backstage, a VIP area behind the Fiat, offers 10 dedicated tables designed for bottle service or intimate cocktailing and an outdoor Grey Goose bar. Boasting a different design vocabulary that’s “retro-chic” (sexy and feminine yet strong, unapologetically decadent and avant-garde). It Espresso Lounge nods to 1960’s fashion. It Espresso Lounge is Mr. Ferllen’s personal endeavor and something incredible he felt that he could bring to the Midtown area. Ferllen is the driving force behind the entire concept – décor direction, food & drink offerings, music programming and daily nightlife conversion – enlightened by his vast experience as the creative visionary behind Segafredo and its locations in Brickell, Bal Harbour, Espanola Way and South Pointe. Here is more information about It Espresso Lounge :
According to New Times :
“IT Lounge is open every day from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. WiFi is available for those who want to attempt to get work done during the earlier hours of the day, but really this isn’t that kind of espresso bar, although they do have artisanal coffee. They also have a happy hour from 5 to 8 p.m. and a late night menu starting at 10 p.m. During happy hour, drafts are $5, spirits are $8, and punches for five are $25. An outside bar will have 20 beers on tap. Ferllen also plans on starting up brunch service on Sunday’s soon. “It’ll be a party brunch. From noon to 3 a.m. with three different DJs playing all throughout the day.” While the party will go till the wee hours of the next day, he’s not totally sure that brunch fare will.” written by Carla Torres.
According to Eater :
“Novecento, described as an “authentic, cosmopolitan Argentinian steakhouse,” is making its way down to Midtown. Per their reps, the new eatery, which spans 5,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space and can accommodate 200 people, is opening within the next ten days right next door to sister property It Espresso Lounge. ” written by Ana Heretoiu.
