If you want to head into your weekend with a little cha-cha-cha and then wrap it up right with an amazing Sunday Brunch — head over to the best local bar in town, Pub 52 Gastro + Kitchen.
Located in the heart of South Miami, folks are coming in from all over to check out the full range of events and amazing food at this high energy venue, especially on Thursdays.
Latin Night Thursday is getting to be a big draw, not just for the South Miami Hispanic community but for Cubans, Venezuelans and Puerto Ricans from such neighboring communities as Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Pinecrest, and even as far as Kendall.
And it’s no wonder, with the likes of two regularly scheduled performers — Lisett Morales and Catabella — heating up the stage on alternating Thursdays.
With a strong, distinguishable voice, Cuban-born Lisett Morales has become an icon in the Latin music community. She has performed all over the world in such venues as LA Cubafest, Cumbre Tajin Mexico, Lincoln Center, and Adriane Arsht Center. She even performed for President George W. Bush in 2004.
With a style that invokes the legendary Cuban artist Celia Cruz, Lisett made her Off-Broadway debut as an actress with Celia (The Life and Music of Celia Cruz). She is a bonafide showstopper with her sexy, yet dynamic performances. Lisett Morales performs every other Thursday night.
And if that’s not enough, enjoy Catabella on the alternating Thursdays. Born in Bogota and raised in Miami, Catabella and the Latin Group is currently one of the hottest Miami bands. Specializing in tropical music, Catabella is recognized widely for her talent, especially in the Hispanic community.
Catabella says she likes to stick with the oldies, the kind of songs that used to make everyone get up and dance at every party — and still does to this day.
The Pub 52 team just wants to be sure they are taking care of the wants and needs of the community — and Latin Night is definitely striking a chord here. And it’s no wonder with the great atmosphere that Pub 52 serves — along with Latin Night Mojitos for just $5 and a menu that’s loaded with great late night eats and other traditional favorites. Performances and drink special at Latin Night Thursdays start at 8 p.m.
On the other end of the weekend is the hottest brunch in town, Pub 52’s ever-popular Sunday Brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sundays and Pub 52 go together like bacon and eggs — and a whole lot more. Here guests enjoy bottomless mimosas and house sangria that are always flowing, along with great yacht rock mixed tunes.
The menu features a wide selection of quality breakfast items, from the traditional French toast and buttermilk pancakes to an omelet station and four delectable eggs benedict selections: the old school benedict, southern chicken benedict, short rib benedict, and the carnivore benedict with poached eggs, steak, bacon, sautéed onion and, of course hollandaise.
Pub 52 is a great local hangout for happy hour drinks, watching sports on 30 big screens, playing a game of pool, or grabbing a bite with friends and family.
There’s something for everyone on the menu, which features handmade burgers from premium Black Angus Beef, steaks, jumbo-style wings with 15 house sauces to choose from, flatbreads and a raw bar with fresh local seafood and fish specialties.
With the longest bar in all of South Miami — coming in at 70 feet — Pub 52 serves up an extensive craft beer selection supplied from local brewers, a bourbon whiskey section, and cocktail classics. Pub 52 also can accommodate social and corporate events.
