Red Phone Booth, a franchised experiential outlet that features a 1920s-style cigar lounge, bar, and eatery, has opened in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood, its first Florida establishment.
With the original location in downtown Atlanta, Red Phone Booth also has locations in Atlanta, Nashville, and Dallas, with Tampa next on the list.
Red Phone Booth Hospitality was founded by Stephen de Haan. The Brickell location is the first franchise location to open.
The new Florida location occupies nearly 6,000 square feet and features reclaimed brick walls from a textile mill, a honey onyx bar, Italian leather couches, and hand-painted ceiling and fine art throughout the venue. On the second level, the Mafia Room is available to rent for private events and has its own bar, pool table, poker table, and flat-screen TVs.
Red Phone Booth serves up a wide choice of curated cocktails, made-to-order food, and a full humidor.
While the lounge is open to the public, part of the unique prohibition experience is that guests will need a secret phone number from a member or local hotel concierge to dial into the restored London antique red phone booth to gain entry. Memberships are reciprocal at all locations and are expected to sell out quickly. Membership starts at $400 (individual) to $7,500 (corporate) with packages in between. The Red Phone Booth Brickell location is currently accepting applications for membership.
