Restaurant Lounge Coming to Miami Beach Parking Lot at 1111 Lincoln Road
Perhaps Miami Beach’s most iconic parking lot, 1111 Lincoln Road, will soon welcome another clublike restaurant.
A5 Hospitality filed for permits to open a 146-seat establishment inside the famed concrete structure designed by Herzog and de Meuron, a Swiss firm that won the coveted Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2001.
The Montreal-based hospitality group inked a 4,500-square-foot deal early last year to lease a former restaurant space on the fourth floor of the nine-story property, owned by German investment fund Bayerische Versorgungskammer, according to Colliers’ Jonathan Carter, who represented the landlord.
“The concept is to have the best local cultural atmosphere with a tasty tapas-style menu … with live entertainment — most often provided by DJs,” the permit application states. The venue will feature a 49-seat outdoor patio.
A5 Hospitality’s website lists all its establishments in the Montreal and Toronto areas, so the concept appears to be the group’s first foray into the United States. A representative for the company did not respond to a request for comment.
1111 Lincoln Road, at the western end of the pedestrian shopping street, features about 52,000 square feet of retail space, 94,500 square feet for offices, and a 300-space parking garage that’s sometimes converted into an event venue.
Juvia, a restaurant and lounge, will remain on the top floor. Fast-food joint Shake Shack, coffee-table book seller Taschen as well as fashion brands Ted Baker and Osklen are based on the ground floor of the property.
