Miami, FL (August 9, 2022) – When Arlo Wynwood, Wynwood Art District’s first hotel property, opens its doors fall 2022, locals and erudite visitors will recognize the all-star roster of local talent helming the property’s multiple food and beverage outlets. Taking charge of the property’s food & drink operations is none other than Bar Lab, the trend-setting culinary and cocktail collective helmed by Gabe Orta and Elad Zvi. Renowned for their work in Magic City and beyond, for the Arlo collaboration, Bar Lab has teamed up with award-winning Miami Chef/Partner Brad Kilgore to develop and operate the signature restaurant at the all-new, nine-story hotel in Miami’s preeminent creative and cultural district. Additional food & beverage outlets will include a cocktail-centric third-floor lounge, as well as a bustling rooftop deck.
“We envisioned the food and beverage program at Arlo Wynwood to be as dynamic as the neighborhood itself, and representative of the best Miami has to offer,” said Oleg Pavlov, founder and CEO of Quadrum Global and founder of Arlo Hotels. “By partnering with James Beard finalist Chef Bradley Kilgore to helm the hotel’s culinary program, and Bar Lab to develop the concepts for each of the hotel’s food & beverage outlets, we are bringing together two of the most celebrated names in the industry, and putting them together under one roof to create the city’s most anticipated destination.”
Known for catapulting Miami’s cocktail scene to national stardom in 2009 with the opening of James beard finalist and three-time “Top 50 Bars in the World” award-winner Broken Shaker, Bar Lab has been redefining the hospitality industry ever since by creating unique, eclectic food and beverage programs for their own venues and companies worldwide. Amongst the stellar lineup of concepts they’ve launched: Broken Shaker (Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York); 27 Restaurant (Miami); Hoja Taqueria (Miami Beach); Margot (Miami); The Exchange (Los Angeles), and the much- anticipated Jolene Sound Room, opening 2022.
A finalist for James Beard “Best Chef: South” and Food & Wine “Best New Chefs in America” alumnus, Kilgore started his career at 3-star Michelin Restaurants Alinea & L20 before moving to Miami where his first stop was Azul at the Mandarin Oriental. The restaurant was awarded the coveted Forbes “5 Star Award” under his guidance. Next, he ran Jean-Georges Grill at the St. Regis Bal Harbor, earning his first of two 4-Star reviews from The Miami Herald. In 2015, Kilgore redefined the Miami dining scene when he opened Alter in Wynwood, a progressive American restaurant which achieved international acclaim for meticulously-crafted dishes with exotic ingredients. At Alter he received another 4-Star review from The Miami Herald, the only chef in the newspaper’s history to achieve this feat. Most recently he Became the Culinary Director of private members-only, The Concours Club with his signature restaurant Verge. All of his restaurants illustrate his passion and skillset for traversing genres, techniques and influences from across the globe. At Arlo Wynwood, Kilgore and the team will deliver a robust, flavorful Floridian-inspired brasserie offering a menu that will undoubtedly have Chef Kilgore’s uniquely personal touch while delivering big, bold, approachable flavors and textures.
Arlo Wynwood will open to the public fall 2022 at 2217 NW Miami Court in Wynwood. Details on food & beverage outlets are forthcoming. For additional information visit www.arlohotels.com.
