Copper Blues Rock Pub opens Latin-inspired kitchen in Doral

Copper Blues Rock Pub & Kitchen

8300 NW 36th St., Doral, 305-842-2250, CopperBluesLive.com

This 18-year-old mini chain based in Phoenix has introduced its second South Florida location on the second level of CityPlace Doral, joining its West Palm Beach sibling.

A stage hosts musicians, and garage doors bridge the patio to the industrial interior with brick walls, two semicircular copper bars, and video and board games.

“The design is a combination of the other locations and was envisioned to have the most detail. Knowing Miami expects more, we wanted to make sure we delivered,” partner Robbie Day says. “It features many local artists doing wall murals, digital wraps and stenciled images. We’ve sourced roughly 145 vintage pieces from Central Florida to project an authentic, rustic look, from old pumps and vintage fruit baskets to old railroad loading carts.”

The elevated pub fare features Latin-inspired items exclusive to this location, such as blistered shishito peppers and roasted cauliflower with poblano cream sauce ($11.50), tacos with chili-glazed pork belly and chicharron-pepita crunch ($12), torta de pollo with crispy chicken and chipotle crema ($15) and the Doral Burger with Spanish ham, fried cheese, shoestring potatoes and corn aioli ($16).

Dessert features mango tres leches ($7.50) or shakes ($7.50), such as strawberry shortcake, which can be spiked for an extra $4.

Cocktails include the Café Old Fashioned with coffee-infused bourbon ($13) and the Pina y Peppar with mescal and blistered pineapple ($14).

Dinner is served nighty and lunch on the weekends, with weekend brunch to come.
