The holiday cheer has officially started and taken over the lobby with holiday-inspired gifts, decorations, festive cocktails, and weekly events for everyone!

Phuc Yea, Miami’s premier destination for Vietnamese-Cajun cuisine by Cesar Zapata and Aniece Meinhold prepares to turn their sophisticated setting and lush lobby lounge into a PHRESHASPHUC Winter Wonderland spectacular! Starting December 2nd, Santa will greet everyone with a mask on and Lysol spray in hand as guests step into the restaurant. From their speakeasy-esque dining room with private and semi-private dining zones to their Lantern Garden, guests can expect to see the entire restaurant converted into a merry-ephing Xmas activation.

With Santa adhering to Covid19 regulations and welcoming everyone safely to the festive lobby, guests can expect to be instantly transported into a magical Christmas experience! Every day at Phuc Yea will bring jolly with weekly promos that’ll have people listening to “All I Want for Christmas” on replay, Sundays will not include holiday music but Xmas movies, guests may even catch a special appearance from the real-life Grinch!
Getting over the midweek hump day will be wacky but oh’ so much fun, with “Wacky Onesie Wednesday” where everyone is encouraged to come in their onesies and chill. Care to get extra wacky with your onesie? It will pay off as Phuc Yea will be giving away a one-year worth of free oysters, the winner will claim 12 free oysters and a complimentary cocktail once a month, now that person will for sure make it on the Phuc Yea “Nice List”. The holidays are all about family and giving back, Phuc Yea customers are invited to add an ornament to the Phuc Yea tree to become part of the family, bring an ornament and get one free shot.

The fun doesn’t stop there! Get ready to check your Christmas checklist off with all the Phuc Yea gifts, shop for your friends, family, or even for yourself; there will be plenty to choose from. Guests can bring the smell of Pho into their home with Phuc Yea’s new signature Pho Spiced candle, the “PHO Twenty”. It smells like steaming spiced smoked with an afternoon toke, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, star anise, and cannabis-inspired scent. For Chef Enthusiasts or foodies, a Recipe Cook Book by forty of the city’s leading chefs and mixologists, featuring Phuc Yea will be available for purchase as well.

In addition to their new candles, there will also be other gifts available for purchase, including their House Phuc Yea T-shirt for those who want to join the fam with some of their gear.
