Things To Do

El Patio opens in Wynwood Friday, January 22

There’s a new hangout spot opening in Wynwood, and it’s poised to become Miami’s first “underground Latina vintrash bar,” according to the team behind it. Vintrash, if you didn’t already know, refers to decor that involves using a hodgepodge of recycled “trash” as decoration, a-la pawnshop.

Helmed by entertainment and gastronomic gurus Nicolas Hoyos, Catalina Monsalve, Beto Perez and Jaquelina Zingalez, El Patio aims to offer guests a one-of-a-kind Latin-inspired experience that combines artistic decor, expertly curated Latin entertainment and unique artisanal cocktail offerings. The 3,500 square foot venue will also sport a soundtrack focused on Latin Beats, Salsa Vintage, Reggaeton, Champeta, Cumbia Funk and Pacific Vibes.

El Patio’s grand opening will take place Friday, January 22 from 8 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. and will feature unlimited cocktails by Don Julio Tequila and Jack Daniels Honey, along with free flowin’ Sam Adams Beer from 8-10 p.m. Guests will also enjoy live performances by #DJQu4tro and Xperimento, a bilingual, multicultural band. The event is open to the public with RSVP via
