Located at 450 NW 37 Ave., on the second floor mezzanine of the Magic City Casino, home to Miami’s first slot machines, this intimate new bar and lounge overlooks a new open-air concert stage that will feature live performances and themed events.
The venue is in tune with the acclaimed singer-songwriter’s affinity for music and the entertainment arts, and his passion for Miami. In fact, Secada and Friends, with special guest appearances by Olivia Newton-John, as well as Lisette and Willy Chirino, is the first concert scheduled for the upcoming series at the new state-ofthe- art Magic City Amphitheatre, launching in tandem with the opening of Secada’s on Thursday, Nov. 4, at 8 p.m.
Seating 160 guests, Secada’s will offer an ideal setting for meeting friends for cocktails and innovative bar bites, while enjoying great entertainment, ranging from dance-offs, Carnaval nights, and live deejay music.
Secada’s also will bring back the intimacy of a live music venue to Miami, where guests will enjoy impromptu evenings hosted by Secada as well as performances by local musicians and emerging acts. Guests also will have the opportunity to buy Secada’s new signature merchandise, including cotton tees, camis, and hats.
This lively second floor lounge, enhanced with Secada’s personal memorabilia, will offer guests a laidback atmosphere with great classic and innovative cocktails and a menu, created by the talented Heidi Ladell of Connoisseur Cuisine, featuring an array of gourmet Latin foods such as delicious croquettes, empanadas, homemade dips and salsas, tortilla española, and refreshing salads, priced from $6 to $10.
On concert days, Secada’s will offer specialty dishes, including grilled churrasco, ropa vieja, and paella. Just steps away, inside the casino, will be a new VIP, highrollers suite, where guests can hobnob with Secada and his friends, sip champagne and sample delectable buffet-style dishes, also created by Ladell.
For this exciting new venture, Secada, who was born in Cuba, grew up in Miami, and graduated from the University of Miami with a bachelor’s degree in music and a master’s degree in jazz vocal performance, has partnered with producermanager- musician Frank Fiore and veteran entertainment attorney/producer Allen Jacobi.
“Its great fun being involved with Miami’s favorite son, to develop a project happening in the heart of our hometown,” Jacobi said.
