The Rum Line, a Caribbean-inspired bar, opens last Thursday at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. The bar’s offerings will feature drink recipes from the 1930s to the 1960s and a small plate and seafood menu. The Rum Line seats up to 60 people in the hotel’s St. Moritz tower terrace at 1601 Collins Ave. Thursdays through Sundays from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. The rum-soaked cocktail list spotlights updated classics from yesteryear, including nautical-themed drinks and scorpion bowls, plus lobster rolls and crispy oysters.

According to Urban Daddy :
“The Rum Line, a breezy outdoor bungalow that favors classic rum concoctions, crispy oysters and moonlit conversation, opening Thursday in South Beach. This is where you’ll casually while the night away with a few friends over a well-made rum cocktail or two. Make your way to the St. Moritz Tower at the Loews and onto this tropical terrace of twinkling bulbs and teak wood. Grab a seat at the bar or find a plush wicker chair to kick back in. Because soon, you’ll be ordering Rob Ferrara–concocted glasses of Hemingway Daiquiris and Cargo Ships (rum, Batavia arrack, Panther coffee reduction and mole bitters) and pondering the meaning of life…”
According to Eater :
“Acclaimed New York City restaurateurs John McDonald, Joshua Pickard and Josh Capon (the triple Js behind NYC and Miami’s Lure Fishbar) have teamed up with local restaurant operators Seth Alexander and Sol Alvarez aka (the Dynamic Duo) to open a cocktail concept and private event space called The Rum Line. Featuring original and long lost recipes from a much simpler time in Florida’s past, The Rum Line aims to resurrect classic bartending techniques to create unique one-of-a-kind elixirs, writes a press release. Think punches in scorpion bowls, classically concocted daiquiris and a selection of nautical-inspired drinks made with house-made mixers.” written by Ana Heretoiu.
According to New Times :
“The cocktail program, created by Robert Ferrara, is segmented in several categories: Old School, where you’ll find the classics like the mojito, the dark and stormy, the caipirinha, and the mai tai. Under Daiquiri Time Out, you’ll rediscover what a real daiquiri tastes like. New School features well-balanced cocktails with tiki flair. True, most of the libations are rum-based (as evidenced by the bar’s name), but that doesn’t stop Ferrara from working with other spirits like gin in his Singapore Sling, vodka in the Copacabana (made with muddled strawberries), and scotch in the Donkey Kong.” written by Laine Doss.
