A Midtown Saloon with Board Games
Drinks: always a good start.
But they’re not everything.
There’s the crowd. The scene. Whether or not they have Scrabble.
You know, the important stuff...
Introducing Ricochet Bar and Lounge, a sprawling saloon of casual cocktailing, board game playing
and art appreciating, slated to open Thursday in Midtown.
Depending on the night, the setup here could go from post-work happy hour spot to indie-rock den. So one
night, you might find yourself sitting at one of the gold
and steel bar stools at the triangular bar (made of purple marble), sipping a coffee-infused cocktail
with colleagues. The next night, you’ll be staking out a table by the stage and biding your time with a
quick game of Pictionary (there’s a separate board game menu).
And then there’s all the art designed to spark conversation between you and your date before or after
you’ve hit Sugarcane for dinner. Your coasters: designed by local artist Daniel Arsham. The video art
displayed on the flat-screens: curated by a Design Miami gallerina. The servers’ uniforms: body-hugging
knits from local designer Krelwear.
It’d be really impolite not to use the coasters.
