A word from barmini by José Andrés
It started over 15 years ago when renowned innovator José Andrés created the Salt Air Margarita at Café Atlántico. Today, José pays homage to the golden era of cocktails at barmini by José Andrés, a hub of chef-driven libations that serves as his cocktail lab for all of his restaurants and projects. A pioneer in avant-garde cooking, José's passion is on display at barmini as guests are taken on a whimsical journey of yesteryear via classic cocktails and ingredients. Barmini operates as a true extension of minibar, a learning center where chefs and bartenders collaborate and where heritage meets innovation.

    Seating is very limited so I believe reservations are required. There are many, many drinks to choose from and you get to watch the bartenders craft their works right in front of you. Lots of interesting ingredients and flavors. The food menu is limited, but you go here for the drinks.

    The drinks at Barmini are the best and so is the service. You must try the avocado toast. The ambiance is really great and the décor is unique, modern and comfortable.

    Loved our experience at barmini. The drinks were so unique, and the food even more so. The foiffle is one of the tastiest ways I've ever experienced foi gras. The service was so welcoming and helpful, with the exception of our assigned server; she always seemed rushed, would clear empty glasses multiple times without asking for new orders, etc. but everyone and everything else seemed to make up for it.
