Broken Shaker is another highlight from my trip to Miami! Owned by the ever popular Freehand group, this bar is situated in the middle of one of Miami Beach’s most famous 1930s Art Deco buildings, Indian Creek Hotel.
Although the bar itself is on the small side, outside there’s an abundance of space in their beautiful out-door courtyard: fairy lights, lush trees, mismatched garden furniture dotted around their key feature, an outdoor swimming pool. This is definitely a place where all the beautiful people of Miami hang out every day of the week… as well as all of the drug dealers- so very Miami 😉
When we arrived, we didn’t waste any time. We squeezed our way to the front of the bar, ordered two Cuba Libre’s and proceeded to the pool area where we people watched and attempted to guess who was a drug dealer and who wasn’t.
Broken Shaker’s Cuba Libre consisted of house spiced Bacardi Gold Rum with homemade Cola and Bittercube Jamaica #1 bitters. Although the Cuba Libre was nice and refreshing, it did taste very watered down. Bacardi Gold Rum is pretty flavoursome as is Bittercube Jamaican #1 bitters, so I could only put this watered-down-ness to the homemade cola or my let lag 🙁
Either way, I really enjoyed my time at Broken Shaker. I would go back and I would encourage you all to go there if you ever find yourself in South Beach Miami- just don’t jump in the pool at 2am as you will get kicked out 😀
