Nestled amongst the towering high-rises in downtown Miami’s bustling Financial District, Pawn Broker sits perched inconspicuously atop the historic Langford Hotel. To describe this stylish Prohibition Era-esque cocktail bar in a nutshell… imagine if Boardwalk Empire and SoHo House had a baby, Pawn Broker would be the prodigious result. The brainchild of James Beard nominated chef and Pubbelly Group (Pubbelly Station, Pubbelly Sushi, Pubbelly Noodle Bar) founder Jose Mendin, Pawn Broker offers that ever-awesome mix of imaginative cocktails, delectable bar bites, and thoughtfully curated music vibes.
First and foremost, Pawn Broker’s cocktail menu is beyond reproach. Reimagined old school classics, served in vintage styled glassware, Pawn Broker’s whimsical cocktails transport you to a bygone era. Their signature creation, Giggle Water is a gin cocktail served in a miniature Victorian style bathtub topped with lavender foam perfectly embodies what makes Pawn Broker unique. The menu, inspired by chef Jose’s “Puerto-Miami” heritage and countless food travels, features small plates seething with rich, bold flavors. Plates like their Grilled Lamb Ribs with black pepper honey & harrisa yogurt, or their Yellowtail Taquitos with ginger-sesame soy & miso caramel are prime examples of chef Jose’s flavor forward menu offerings.
On Sundays, Pawn Broker serves up a mad delicious Boozy Bar Brunch, offering a succulent assortment of Bloody Mary cocktails, fresh Raw Bar, brunch eats, and Rose wine specials. In addition, Tea Time, the latest inspired concept at Pawn Broker, features three punch concoctions paired with your choice of liquor: Pawn Commix (Passion Fruit, Mango Puree, Grapefruit, Sage), Grown Up Tea (Chai Tea, Ginger, Tarragon) and Smoked Up (Smoked Pineapple, Xocolate Bitters, Habanero Agave) all exclusively served up 5PM - 8PM & 11PM - close, Sunday thru Thursday.
