The Lincoln Eatery Food Hall Pays Tribute to Miami Beach’s Infamous Past with Miami's Vice Canteen


The Lincoln Eatery, Miami Beach's first modern food hall, announces the opening of Miami’s Vice Canteen. The bar is a new mixology concept that pays homage to Miami Beach in the 1970s and 1980s, offering a price point that takes bargoers back in time.


The concept pays tribute to memories of Miami Beach’s past, immersing guests into pop culture during the late 20th century with decor and memorabilia from popular television programs filmed in Miami Beach during the 70s and 80s. As bargoers relax on the tropical-inspired bar stools and lounge seating, they go on an iconic journey to the pre-MTV Spring Break version of South Beach as they sip reasonably-priced cocktails starting at $7.


In the late 70s and early 80s, Magic City was referred as the “sun and fun capital of the world” and Miami’s Vice celebrates this era with photography of Ocean Drive and the area’s trademark candy-colored Art Deco architecture, posters of Tony Montana, Lincoln Road and of course, the show that inspired the bar’s name - Miami Vice.


Miami’s Vice was created by Miami Beach locals and hospitality veterans at Knock Out Hospitality Group, including Maximiliano Melé, Benjamin Collins, Roberto Fernandez and Andre Chirinos. Miami’s Vice serves a curated menu of classic and contemporary libations with a touch of Miami Beach flair as well as wine, beer and specialty cocktails.


“For Miami Beach locals who have lived here for generations, Lincoln Road holds a special place in our hearts,” said Maximiliano Melé, managing partner of Knock Out Hospitality Group. “Enjoying a cocktail at Miami’s Vice will bring guests back to the days where South Beach was home to artists and creatives, there was music in the streets and you could buy a drink at a reasonable price.”


Menu highlights include the bar’s classic Miami Vice Cocktail ($9), a mixture of traditional strawberry daiquiri and pina colada, The Classic Mojito ($7), comprised of fresh mint, white rum, sugar cane and lime juice, El Perucho ($11), a mixture of Pisco Quebranta, fresh kiwi, white grapes, citrus syrup and lime juice, and The Java Punch ($11), a flavorful combination of green apple-infused vodka, cilantro ginger citrus syrup, chlorophyll, lime juice and fresh apple slices. The bar will also offer an interactive Highball menu, which will allow the guest to pick their own spirits and mixer. The bar also offers a selection of refreshing caipirinhas.


Additionally, Miami’s Vice will serve a selection of fresh seafood at the venue’s raw bar, offering oysters ($1), Key West pink shrimp ($2) and Florida stone crabs ($4). All produce and seafood are locally sourced and based on seasonal availability along with vibrant exotic fruits and housemade infusions. The menu, which will rotate seasonally, is curated by a team of expert mixologists, who have experience at some of Miami Beach’s best bars and restaurants.


A perfect addition to the after-work scene, Miami’s Vice hosts daily happy hours from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. offering special prices on bites and drinks. The combination of unlimited food options and great prices make the new concept a top choice for casual work meetings, date nights and friendly get-togethers.


Miami’s Vice is open Wednesday through Sunday from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m. Starting at 6 p.m Thursday through Sunday, the bar will have live performances by an esteemed group of local DJs and musicians. For more information visit thelincolneatery.com.
