Goodbye Green Room, hello Prohibition-style craft cocktails

The Revolution Live complex provides good entertainment for diverse crowds: the low-key drinkers at America's Backyard, the alternative partiers at the Green Room, and all sorts of music lovers at Revolution.

Starting Sept. 27, a new spot will cater to hipsters. Bar Stache 1920s Drinking Den will take the old Green Room space at 109 SW Second Ave. with its speakeasy ambience.

Bar Stache is all about Prohibition-era cocktails and early 20th-Century decor, but the music will bring in both pookieheads and funk groovers.

Renowned Miami bartender John Lermayer is behind the cocktail program. His hand in creating Stache's drink menu will be the saving grace of Himmarshee bars in the cocktail world. Lermayer has been behind the bar at some of Miami's best drink havens and is a recognized -- but humble -- mixologist.

So expect good drinks in a vintage atmosphere. Forget feeling limited to dives and sleazy hook-up bars. But to attend the soft opening nights on Sept. 27 and 28, you'll have to RSVP to

Grand-opening night is tentatively set during the first week of November, according to Stache co-creator Mykel Stevens. Once that's set, the bar will open every day with craft cocktails, happy hour and tapas menus.

Until then, RSVP every Friday and Saturday through October to get a taste of flapper chic.
