WHO/WHAT: Kush Hospitality Group's (KHG) expanding empire is traveling across the causeway to Miami Beach at the world-famous Clevelander South Beach hotel. There, the celebrated group will helm the food and beverage program and today, Thursday, September 1, unveils its newest attraction: a sleek sports bar-styled eatery located behind the hotel’s famous pool: Kush at the Clevelander. KHG has been wowing diners and imbibers for over a decade, with a varied portfolio of lively, fun, and whimsical concepts. Just like every other concept, Kush at the Clevelander stays true to the KHG brand, celebrating Miami with a dazzling decor of a 305 fever dream, sports memorabilia, iconic art, pop culture references, and more.

In true sports bar fashion, the restaurant features a bevy of televisions for game day watching as well as a special private viewing room, perfect for a bespoke, private experience for sports superfans. Don't expect your generic framed Dan Marino jersey but, in typical Kush fashion, the restaurant’s entirety will highlight the authentic local sports vibe throughout the displayed art and cocktails. This will be a sports bar 100% “Kush style” so diners and drinkers can expect lots of surprises and even more fun!

The restaurant is open Monday through Thursday, 4PM to 2AM; Friday and Saturday,  11AM to 4AM and Sunday, 11AM to 2AM.

WHEN/WHERE: Kush at the Clevelander is officially open to the public today, Thursday, September 1, 2022. 1020 Ocean Drive on Miami Beach adjacent to the pool area. The main entrance is off Ocean Drive on 10th Street. For more information, please visit or

Founded in 2011, Kush Hospitality Group (KHG) began with the mission to create and operate cutting-edge, one-of-a-kind concepts inspired by South Florida’s rich and diverse community. Every element of each KHG concept is hyper-curated by owner Matt Kuscher, from the menu design and art to merchandise and music. Each restaurant offers menus featuring locally sourced ingredients as well as interiors thoughtfully designed using primarily upcycled and environmentally friendly materials. In fact, KHG has become known as a local leader in eco-friendly practices, having received multiple awards acknowledging their conscious efforts. Kuscher’s goal is to provide the ultimate guest experience with stellar service, made-from-scratch food, and works by local artists carefully chosen so that each concept reflects its specific location and unique perspective on Miami life. KHG’s first concept, LoKal, pronounced [lo-ka’l], opened its doors in December 2011 in Coconut Grove with the intention of featuring ingredients and beers primarily from Florida. LoKal is the first restaurant in Miami-Dade County to use 100% clean, renewable energy sourced from wind and solar power. Other restaurants followed: Kush Wynwood, located in Miami’s Wynwood arts district, and its sister store next door, Botanica – both of which have become known for their expansive craft beer selection; Kush Coconut Grove, which offers sustainable seafood paired with eclectic cocktails, ciders and meads; and Vicky's House Milkshake Bar + Beer Store, a replica of Kuscher’s childhood home in 1986 located next door to LoKal and named after Kuscher’s mother. In the Spring of 2019, after close to two years of development and historically-minded redesign, KHG opened Kush Hialeah, a carefully-refurbished incarnation of the legendary Stephen’s Deli, which first opened in 1954. Accessible through Stephen’s as well as through its own entrance – in a space that was Stephen’s former kitchen – is La Cocina Cocteleria, Hialeah’s first cocktail bar. Tobacco by Road by Kush, a tribute to the historic Miami’s bar and live music venue is located in Brickell and launched in 2021.
