Maison Mura Comes to Downtown Miami at 333 SE 3rd Avenue with a Sophisticated Retail Space
Retail space, lounge area and private tasting room to serve the finest wines and spirits
while offering effortless decadence
Miami (May 16, 2022) –Maison Mura, downtown Miami’s upcoming sophisticated venue for wine and spirits, is slated to open Fall 2022 at 333 SE 3rd Avenue. Maison MURA will serve and offer for sale an extensive selection of premium wine and spirits, as well as a refined food menu, all carefully curated by owners and long-time friends Matthieu Yamoum, the former Wine Director of New York’s Baccarat Hotel, and Philippe Vasilescu, the former Brand Ambassador for the prestigious LOUIS XIII Cognac de Remy Martin. Both share extensive and complementary experiences in the fine wine and spirits industry and have been working for over 2 years on this project to bring this bespoke experience to Miami.
“At Maison MURA, we love what we do and are excited to offer our guests in Miami a comprehensive wine list and menu that is thoughtful and provides a tailored and memorable experience whatever the occasion is! We will always strive to offer a truly personalized service and consistently propose the finest expertise available to all of our clients,” says Vasilescu. “Our passion is meant to be shared everyday and the only missing part of all our current ventures was to have our very own place instead of always hosting at different places! From the moment you enter Maison MURA, we want you to feel at home” said Yamoum.
With burgeoning shelves full of a few thousand top wines and spirits, an inviting and comfortable lounge offering all-day delicacies and a 12-person private tasting room available for every occasion, guests can sit back and savor Maison MURA’s fare in casual opulence. Translated from French to English as “house,” Maison MURA offers something for everyone, from the one-time shopper to wine amateur to aficionados and collectors – a new way to discover, learn, acquire and share their wines and spirits with a like-minded community. The new venue will offer catering service as well.
Although open to all, Maison MURA also offers a membership limited to 150 clients who get priority access to exclusive events, tastings with the world’s top winemakers and invitations to special events and experiences—not only in Miami but all over the world. Other perks include early access to pre-sold and “en primeur” wines that are nearly impossible to secure, priority reservations of the private room to host events and priority storage at their upcoming warehouse of any wines and spirits that you will buy through the shop. Membership can only be secured through Matthieu or Philippe.
