The owners of Beaker & Gray have signed a lease to open a new bar and lounge called BoomBox at Bardot’s former site in Midtown Miami.
BoomBox will open in a 3,264-square-foot space at 3452 North Miami Avenue late this summer, Marc Sirkin of Engel & Voelkers told The Real Deal.
Sirkin and Asi Cymbal of Cymbal Realty represented the owner of the building, North Miami Avenue LLC, led by Cymbal Development’s Ziva Nitzan. Theresa Maieli of La Palma Real Estate Group represented the tenant.
Bardot, a former nightclub owned by Amir Ben-Zion, shut down last summer.
Brian Nasajon, Tony Nasajon and Ben Potts opened the restaurant Beaker & Gray at 2637 North Miami Avenue in Wynwood in 2015.
Their second venture, Mason in Midtown, will open at the end of May in the former Gigi space next door at 3470 North Miami Avenue in Midtown Miami. That building is also owned by an entity controlled by Cymbal Development’s Nitzan. That deal also was brokered by Cymbal and Sirkin.
Midtown Miami has seen many restaurants come and go in recent years. Skorpios opened earlier this year in Bocce Bar’s former space at 3252 Northeast First Avenue. On the same block, Brasserie Azur, which opened in 2015, has recently closed. And on that corner, Apeiro, which also opened in 2015 and closed in 2016, was replaced by Tap 42, which opened a year ago.
