Sunset Happy Hour

Scoop up your sweetie and a couple of chairs at the Bar at The Backyard and enjoy happy-hour priced cocktails like the Spicy Daisy, a delicious combination of El Jimador Silver Tequila, Gem & Bolt Mezcal, spicy agave, Chinola Passion Fruit Liqueur and lime. Also on the happy hour menu are beers and wines for any palate.

Happy Hour at The Yard happens every day of the week from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. just in time to soak in Miami’s magnificent sunsets.

Romantic Dinner for Two at Barbakoa by Finka

Barbakoa by Finka is The Yard’s full service restaurant helmed by Miami Chef Eileen Andrade. Not only is it Miami top ten restaurants to open in 2021 but it’s also a perfect spot to share a romantic and fabulous lunch or dinner for two. Enjoy sharable plates like Korean Chili Wings, Snapper Tiradito, Wagyu Beef Tataki and an assortment of woodstove oven pizzas, to name just a few. Connect over a delicious meal paired with chef-selected wines and cocktails. Reservations are highly recommended!

Fitness Followed by a Feast

For some of us fitness and food together pave the way to our hearts. Find both at The Yard for a perfect date night by day. Get tangled up in yoga together or sweat it out with Zumba and then eat your hearts out at any of The Yard’s culinary vendors.

Dancing and Drinks

Dancing frees the soul and brings you closer to the one you love, so grab them by the hips and hit the dance floor at The Yard. With live music every Thursday through Sunday, you can pick the day and genre that moves you. Grab a refreshing craft cocktail, beer or wine at The Bar at The Yard, too!

Some of our resident performing artists including Leslie Cartaya, Cortadito and MannySwagg are known to ignite dancing vibes. Check out our live music calendar to find out who will be hitting the stage at The Backyard here or keep up to date with our live music line-up on Instagram.
