A hidden urban oasis, La Otra is the newest upscale bar and lounge with ample choice for spending the night
La Otra, Miami’s upscale bar and lounge, has moved from its old Brickell location to a new indoor / outdoor space in the booming Wynwood neighborhood. Tucked away behind a black iron gate, La Otra sits through a back entrance at the end of NE 24 Street, off N Miami Ave. Known for its oversized disco balls, great music and energetic atmosphere, the popular venue is ready to welcome back locals and international guests.
“What is so unique about La Otra is the variety of experiences you can have here,” says Marcelo Medina, partner of La Otra. “One day you can come to La Otra, have a few drinks on the deck and be home by midnight, another night you could be on the dance floor until the early hours of the morning. The opportunities are endless.
“Eventually our location in Brickell gained in popularity to the point of becoming too large for the space,” adds Jason odio, partner of La Otra. “During the pandemic, we took the time to research and seek new homes for our customers. With Wynwood continuing to transform into a global destination, we figured La Otra would be home to the neighborhood. We are delighted to be back.
Through the black iron gate at the end of NE 24 street is the entrance to La Otra. Once inside, guests find themselves on an outdoor porch with a tropical garden that creates an intimate atmosphere, La Otra’s iconic disco balls, and lush plants hanging from the ceiling. Plush and matching chesterfield sofas surround the outdoor area. A 360-degree indoor / outdoor central bar anchors the space and offers wide access to guests. The outdoor space offers guests a front row seat to admire Miami’s iconic skyline, Wynwood’s famous graffiti walls, and every now and then a passing train.
The interior of La Otra is an urban oasis with great greenery, custom green velvet sofas, and disco balls that surround the bar and dance floor. The walls are adorned with subtle tropical-themed wallpapers, stucco, and Art Deco-style architecture that send guests back to the heyday of Miami.
Partners Jason and Marcelo each bring important pieces to the masterpiece that is La Otra. Their goal was not only to create an amazing living room, but to provide a gathering place for the Latin community. At La Otra, you’re just as likely to meet old friends as you are to make new ones. The sense of community they established in Brickell is now reflected in the new location in Wynwood.
The drink program at La Otra offers a wide selection of choices with a particular emphasis on scotch, tequila and mezcal. Specialty cocktails have playful names such as “Lucia” which is a cocktail of tequila, lime, and grapefruit soda; and the “Marina” which is a blend of Sacrvm Mezcal, panela syrup, grapefruit juice, pineapple juice and prosecco.
La Otra is located at 55 NE 24th St, Miami, FL 33137 and is open Thursday through Saturday from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. and Sunday from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. For more information visit www.laotramiami.com, call (305) 908-9368 or check them out on Instagram at @laotramiami.
