OPEN-AIR ROOFTOP RESTAURANT AND BAR IN MIAMI'S SOUTH BEACH
Channeling Oaxaca's Rooftops
Ascend the staircase to Serena, our rooftop bar and restaurant that channels the enchanting, alfresco patio dining of Oaxaca and Mexico City. Here on our vibrant, lushly planted terrace, take in the laid-back yet sophisticated vibe like no other place in South Beach. Known for shareable dishes and a mod take on Latin and Mexican cuisine, Serena welcomes buzzy brunches with live music, tasty nibbles at sunset and the infamous Miami after-party.
Inspired by the brightly hued works of the great Modernist architect Luis Barragán, Serena's garden-like outdoor dining area is a vibrant mosaic of pink, orange, coral, and blue, limewashed for added depth and warmth and offset by terracotta and white stone floors in an ombré pattern. Diners can choose among the fun and eclectic arrangements of plush sofas, overstuffed banquettes, swinging barstools, cushioned wrought-iron chairs, and ceramic-tile tabletops — all surrounded by native Mexican flowering plants set under a domed cast iron canopy that's strung with twinkling lights and fragrant bougainvillea. Reminiscent of the traditional markets of Michoacán, Tepoztlán, and other Mexican locales, the space includes an outdoor kitchen where freshly ground cornmeal is cooked to order on a comal.
The greenhouse-like bar has glass garage doors that open to the warm beach breezes. Inside, the lounge has blue-painted beam ceilings and mosaic tiles reminiscent of an antique fountain. Chilled-out tunes emanate from the semicircular DJ booth composed of breezeway blocks, stationed beneath a purple-toned wall with a neon sign reading "LA ULTIMA Y NOS VAMOS" ("Last one and we're leaving").
