Designed to compliment the hotel’s celebrated cocktail bar, Broken Shaker, 27 Restaurant and Bar embraces the idea of eclectic Americana, boasting vintage wallpaper and magazines as well as a curated selection of local artwork and custom hand drawn pieces by Roman and Williams principal, Stephen Alesch and his wife, Robin Standefer.
In keeping with Freehand Miami’s authentic and comfortable vibe, Roman and Williams converted an existing cottage on property into an intimate and warm environment for locals and travelers alike to eat, drink and unwind. Inspired by the communal spirit of coastal summer camps of the past, the restaurant is outfitted with an eclectic mix of vintage furniture, while clusters of lounge chairs and couches compliment the more traditional small table seating positioned alongside communal large wooden picnic tables.
Drawing on their experience designing iconic destinations such as Ace Hotel New York, Royalton New York, The Standard High Line and The High Line Hotel, among others, Roman and Williams have embraced the local energy and aesthetic of Miami while infusing a level of sophistication, resulting in an unexpectedly refined yet casual hostel experience.
