Beloved Downtown Miami hole-in-the-wall speakeasy reopens over one year later

DOWNTOWN MIAMI, Florida. – West of Maurice A. Ferré Park (also known as Bicentennial Park) in Downtown Miami was once a dark and moody pub – a local-only, good food and whiskey loving whisper pub and bar for those looking for a solid happy hour ( or drinks for 5 a.m.) in the heart of downtown.

However, everything changed for this pub in March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit Magic City, forcing bars (especially those with no outdoor seating) to temporarily close their doors – some even for good.

One of those facilities that have been temporarily closed was The Corner, which announced that they will be closed on March 16, 2020 until “further notice”. However, after being closed for over a year, they have reopened their doors for the convenience of their regulars.

Founded in 2011 and known for craft cocktails, fine spirits and hot dogs, the dark night bar opened on Monday the 10th.


When The Corner informed their followers on Instagram about their reopening, the fans were overjoyed. Some commented, “FINALLYYYYYYY” and “ES ABOUT TIMEEEEEE” while one woman simply commented, “I scream”.

Some other comments ranged from “Get me back on the plane” and “I jump for joy!” To “Nature heals. best bar in Miami is back “and” LFG! “

If these aren’t enough reviews to understand that locals missed out on this downtown nightspot, we don’t know what to tell you.

A decade after first opening, the bar has still made prominent lists of Miami’s best bars, including the Miami New Times “Best Bars of 2020” and Infatuation Miami’s “Best Bars in Downtown and Brickell”.


Although some reviews claim that the Whisper Pub is reminiscent of The Big Easy and offers cocktails like New Orleans classics like Vieux Carré and Sazerac, as well as a classic Hurricane, others say: Cornering until 5am and 8am on the weekend doesn’t hurt. “

And it’s true. This hole in the wall is open Sunday through Thursday from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. and Friday and Saturday from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.

Yes, 8 a.m. (Apparently they won’t judge you for an Old Fashioned at 7:30 a.m.)

The Corner is located at 1035 N Miami Ave, Miami, Florida. Please see their website for more information.
