This ‘Real Housewives’ star was a South Beach nightlife king. Now he’s got a new spot

He’s back.

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-star Peter Thomas is opening another restaurant in South Florida.

Bar One Miami, located at 520 West Ave. inside the Bentley Bay Condominiums, already has an Instagram page so you can get a sneak peek.

“Bar One will cater to the roots of Miami with an island coastal vibe. The energy will be soulful and chic overlooking waterfront views with also an exclusive yacht experience!” reads one post, which has pictures of the sleek, tropical waterside venue.

Thomas, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star and model/actress Cynthia Bailey’s ex-husband, is no stranger to SoBe nightlife.

In the mid-’90s, the 58-year-old businessman owned and operated Savannah at 404 Washington Ave. the first black-owned gourmet restaurant in South Beach. He sold it to China Grill, and it is now Lobster Bar Sea Grille.

In 2000, he returned to the Magic City as a consultant for Krave and Static nightclubs. Thomas also went on to run the 5th Street Night Club turned BarCode Restaurant & Lounge, farther up Washington Avenue.

They were widely known as celebrity and athlete magnets and attracted a young, professional crowd.

During his time here, his eponymous entertainment group also founded the How Can I Be Down hip-hop festival.

There was a soft opening for Bar One in January, with fellow “RHOA” cast members Nene and Gregg Leakes. So when can we expect the real thing?

A spokesperson told Miami.com the big day is Sept. 12.

Erika Girardi, better known as Erika Jayne, insists she's friends with other "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" cast members. She admits she's guilty of engaging in high drama tiffs.
