Yelp Miami’s On Fire (Seriously)

What do you do for the Elite who’s been there and done that?
You reserve a room for her at a new SoBe hotspot, fill her full of delicious
food, ply her with signature cocktails, get the party started with thumpin’
music… and add fire. Yes, fire. Sound like fun? Sound like a little too much
fun? Perhaps you need to do as over 150 members of the Yelp Miami Elite Squad
did when Yelp Checks In to Room Service Restaurant Lounge.

Elites were definitely encouraged to rest a bit and stay a
while as they were greeted by sexy bellhops and given a glass of the signature
beverage for the evening: The Three Days, Two Nights. This decadent cocktail
boasted the flavors of St Germain, lemon juice and pineapple juice and was made all the more potent by Absolut
vodka
. For daring guests who ventured away from the signature cocktail, they
were treated to cart-side cocktail craftsmanship by the team from Absolut and
had the opportunity to have their picture taken at the Absolut step &
repeat.

With ‘service’ in the name, being catered to is part of the
experience, no? Yes. The expert staff of RSRL were on hand to make sure that no
guest was without bites made by Chef Emmanuelli. Elites savored Four Cheese Mac Bites with lobster; Coconut Chicken Skewers with sweet and sour sauce; Chicken Meatballs tossed in a pineapple glaze; and Filet Mignon-stuffed empanadas
for the evening’s savory/restaurant portion and then got their sweet teeth
hummin’ with Red Velvet Cake, Italian Wedding Cake and Tiramisu. But what’s dessert without a show?

Led by French Maids sporting bottles of Perrier-Jouët
adorned with sparklers, the lights went down and the heat went up. The DJ took
his place in the booth and transformed restaurant to lounge and the bartenders
stepped up to provide a show for the ages. Standing atop the bar and blasting a
whistle, the bar staff, literally, played with fire. To the delight of the
crowd, these brave men juggled, held and breathed fire giving no doubt to the
question: what’s the hottest lounge in SoBe. Need more? Trusted photog Alex H
snapped all the shots here and dazzled Elites wrote their impressions here.
