Revel in the return of the vibrant waterfront entertainment vibe to downtown Miami with the upcoming grand opening of Pier 5 at Bayside Marketplace, initiated by Breakwater Hospitality Group and co-owner Erick Passo of Black Market Miami. Marking its official grand opening with a weekend-long celebration starting Thursday, January 11, Pier 5 promises to reignite the energy that The Wharf Miami once brought to the area.
Pier 5, an innovative outdoor entertainment and food venue, emerges as the brainchild of Breakwater Hospitality Group, known for its success with popular South Florida venues such as The Wharf Fort Lauderdale, Regatta Grove in Coconut Grove, and Carousel Club in Hallandale Beach. The concept transcends traditional dining by offering captivating activations, live music, diverse food vendors, and an array of specialty cocktails.
Alex Mantecon, co-founder of Breakwater Hospitality Group, shares, "Pier 5 is a representation of our commitment to celebrating Miami's energetic culture by bringing people together and creating lasting memories." The venue aims to reinvigorate Bayside Marketplace as a dynamic destination for locals and visitors alike, fostering a vibrant atmosphere with creative event programming, enticing drinks, and delectable food on the bayfront.
This open-air entertainment destination ensures a daily dose of inclusive activities for all ages. Families can relish signature deck games and find solace in shaded lounge areas to escape the Miami heat, while the Rum Bar caters to adults with tropical drinks like mojitos and daiquiris. The Tequila and Mezcal Bar, boasting over 150 labels, takes center stage with a specialty margarita selection.
Pier 5 introduces a delectable lineup of food offerings from four popular vendors at Bayside Marketplace. Black Market Miami, renowned for its bar food with a Miami twist, presents a menu ranging from wings to ham croquetas. Pizza enthusiasts can savor New York-style slices from Ben's Pizza, including the classic cheese and pepperoni char cup pizza. La Industria, the famous bakery founded by singer and actor Nicky Jam, offers its specialties, while Skoops provides a refreshing end with authentic gelato and ice cream.
Emi Guerra, co-founder of Breakwater Hospitality Group, expresses, "Pier 5 will add a new and exciting dimension to Bayside Marketplace, infusing the community with a fresh and lively atmosphere." The venue's ambiance, shaped by great music, delicious cocktails, and a welcoming atmosphere, pays homage to the city's fishing culture with a tropical influence, creating a unique experience for both locals and visitors. As Pier 5 welcomes guests during its soft opening, the weekend-long grand opening from January 11 to January 14 promises a complimentary welcome cocktail for RSVPs, inviting all to join in celebrating the revival of this iconic waterfront destination.
