This Week’s Miami Happenings: The Flat, The Cypress Room, & Cafeina’s Mezzanine Open

SUNDAY: A Grown-Up Lounge Opens In SoFi
Wondering if the art of a conversation with posing hotties in a posh setting is the ultimate in oxymoron? Cedric Adegnika, the owner of The Flat, a new, Euro-themed cocktail lounge in SoFi, is banking on proving that allegory false. The spot is for those who intend to bookend their evening plans with a pre-dinner martini and nightcap in an environment where hushed conversations abound. As with all other Adegnika’ endeavors/sought-after VIP experiences, an outing at The Flat should be anything but deflated.

The Flat (500 S. Pointe Dr., South Beach) is open now. For details, check out the listing in BlackBook Guides.

NOW: The Cypress Room Raises The Bar
Michael Schwartz, the wizard who put the Design District on the culinary map, has opened his latest eatery The Cypress Room that pays homage to the good ol’ American eats, classic cocktails, roaring ‘20s, and taxidermy. Schwartz’ restaurantserves up Roel Alcudias understated dinner creations and Hedy Goldsmith’s sweets, with plans to unveil the lunch menu in the near future.

The Cypress Room (3620 NE Second Ave., Design District) is open now. Check out the listing in BlackBook Guides.

THURSDAY: Caffeinated Birthday
Wynwood’s beloved Cafeina is three years old. To celebrate this momentous occasion, the hyphenate spot (bar-gallery-restaurant) is debuting Mezzanine, the new upstairs lounge area, where burlesque performances and free cocktails will help you get into the celebratory mood.
