Socialista Miami’s colorful interior draws upon a mix of colonial influences combined with Chinese accents and 20th-century modernism. French antiques and plantation-style rattan furniture covered in rich velvets and brocades offer guests a warm and relaxed space. The colors are reminiscent of the 1950’s interiors, with peacock greens and art deco blue blended with natural earth tones and lush tropical elements that create a sense of glamour. The garden-style terrace, dimmed with amber backlight and overlooking the water, enjoys the views of Miami’s world-famous scenery. Socialista’s concept and menu focus on quality and simplicity and include authentic rums, Caribbean inspired dishes available throughout the night, a wide selection of hand-rolled cigars, and a combination of live talent and resident DJ’s.
