Cantina La Veinte

Designed by Mexican architectural firm Niz + Chauvet, the 450-seat indoor/outdoor restaurant and bar pays homage to Mexican art deco while maintaining the distinct decor of a traditional Mexican cantina. Upon entering, guests are greeted by a striking, contemporary black onyx bar with antiqued mirrors and a geometric black-and-gold chandelier. Black-and-white marble flooring separates the bar area from the dining room, while the open exhibition kitchen showcases the talented culinary team’s authentic creations. The restaurant features expansive framed windows and rich black wood-paneled walls as well as a curated selection of sophisticated, award-winning Mexican folk art. A staircase leads guests downstairs to the outdoor waterfront patio, which showcases views of Brickell Key and Biscayne Bay. The covered al fresco dining area makes this restaurant popular for happy hour, dinner under the stars and lunch with an ocean breeze. Overhead, thick frosted glass panels protect diners from the elements and are etched with the Cantina’s symbols of maize and agave. An outdoor cooling system keeps guests comfortable year-round. Cantina La Veinte also has its own upscale mercado adjacent to the outdoor dining area, offering prepared foods, imported Mexican ingredients, charcuterie, fresh-baked bread, caviar, wine and horchata.
