With the launch of an exciting new bar experience at Bourbon Steak, locals now have a hot spot to call home for live music and happy hour during the workweek.
Every Wednesday from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m., the famed Michael Mina restaurant invites a local blues band to entertain the crowd for Bourbon & Blues. In fact, South Florida’s celebrated performers Albert Castiglia, who was once the lead guitarist/vocalist for legend Junior Wells, and Graham Drout have been dominating the “stage” since the start. There’s no cover charge and while music envelops the dining room, guests can enjoy the wildly-popular chicken & waffles that’s only available on Wednesdays or order off the new interactive Bar Burgers menu featuring five signature burgers, the option to build your own burger with up to six toppings, and three “adult” milkshakes.
For bourbon and American whiskey fans, Bourbon & Blues is a true drink enthusiast’s delight. Throughout the evening, the restaurant gives a 25% discount on its extensive selection (over 30 to choose from including Knob Creek, Woodford Reserve, Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 23 Year and A.H. Hirsch Reserve 16 year) and guests have the option of savoring their favorite spirit four different ways – neat, on the rocks, as a Manhattan, or sour.
Come early and allow Bourbon Steak to Raise Your Spirits. This laid-back social hour is offered at the chic bar Monday through Fridays from 6 to 8 p.m. (and all evening during Bourbon & Blues) and features half-priced signature cocktails ($3.50 to $9.50) like the Bramble with Plymouth, fresh lemon, Crème de Mure and crushed ice, and reduced-priced appetizers and entrees. Complimentary butter-truffle popcorn provides a savory start to the night.
What's more, locals are also welcome to join Sommelier Matthew Turner for wine tastings every Tuesday through Friday, starting at 6 p.m. for $20 per person. Wines are chosen from the restaurant’s extensive menu of over 880 selections based on guest preferences.
The Bar Burgers menu is also available on Saturday, too. Bourbon Steak, a Michael Mina restaurant, is located off the main lobby of the legendary Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort & Club at 19999 West Country Club Drive in Aventura. It’s open daily for dinner Monday-Thursday from 6 to 10 p.m. and Friday–Saturday from 6 to 11 p.m., closed Sunday. All major credit cards are accepted.
