We invite you to journey through the regions of Oaxaca, Mexico with us in a very special “Passport” Mezcal tasting in honor of National Mezcal Day at Como Como at Moxy South Beach. Mezcal, which is deeply rooted into Oaxacan region culture as well as several neighboring communities, dates back hundreds of years where families throughout the regions work to preserve ancestral techniques for distilling Mezcal. Today, Mezcal is still made from the heart of an agave plant as it was many years ago where the myth said a lightning bolt struck an agave plant releasing its juice and giving it its name “elixir of the gods.”
Join us in celebrating the deeply rooted history in the popular Mexican spirit on National Mezcal Day (Oct 21) from 6-8PM as Como Como at Moxy South Beach is hosting a complimentary passport tasting featuring popular Mezcal brands; Ilegal, Amaras, Gem and Bolt, Del Maguey, and El Tinieblo. Guests can also enjoy a featured specialty cocktail “Sunshine State of Mind” for $10 while sipping their way through the Oaxacan region.

About Moxy South Beach
A stylish and playful celebration of Miami’s cosmopolitan culture, Moxy South Beach marks a new chapter for hospitality in Miami Beach. The first resort-style property for the Moxy brand, the 202-room, eight-story hotel is located steps from the sand on Washington Avenue. It offers the dining, drinking, lounging, and co-working options that modern, design-focused travelers crave — all at an attractive price point. Interiors by Rockwell Group and Saladino Design Studios mix the glamour of midcentury Havana, the artistry of contemporary Mexico City, and a tropical vibrancy that’s unmistakably Miami. Bedrooms, dressed in vivid Miami hues and drenched in Florida sunshine thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, feature rain showers and ingenious, space-maximizing storage solutions. Six new dining and drinking venues, developed by the founders of Miami’s uber-popular Coyo Taco and 1-800-LUCKY, include Como Como, a marisquería and raw bar; Mezcalista, a sexy mezcal lounge; Serena, an open-air rooftop restaurant and bar; Los Buenos, a taco stand/bodega in the lobby, complemented by Bar Moxy, which does double duty as a social hub and check-in area; and The Upside, a rooftop bar on the eighth floor exclusively for hotel guests and private events. Multiple indoor-outdoor spaces include a ground floor courtyard; a 72-foot, cabana-lined pool; an indoor-outdoor fitness center; an outdoor movie screening room on the rooftop; and an exclusive beach club on Miami’s famous South Beach. Moxy South Beach is Lightstone’s first Moxy hotel opening outside of New York City, following the successful launches of Moxy Times Square, Moxy Chelsea, and Moxy East Village.
