Seen By Sara: HaVen
There is no denying that the hottest new ultra lounge in South Beach is HaVen. Only open for a short while, this eccentric locals spot has already gained a massive amount of loyal guests who return every week for the eclectic parties that are offered nightly. Already a fan favorite amongst locals is the Double Bubble 80’s Night on Tuesdays which I can say from experience is a blast. What is not to love about cute waitresses dressed straight out of Pretty In Pink and your favorite classic board games like Operation & Connect Four scattered about on the surfaces?
What’s so special about HaVen is the thousands of projector lights that fill up the ENTIRE wall space, virtually creating whatever atmosphere the mood calls for. For the 80’s night it rotated between a live version of the classic Pac-Man game and retro movie clips. On other nights it can be anything from hypnotizing light shows, picture slide shows or simply as it was the other night.. shelves of books! (No kidding). HaVen is not only a ultra sexy lounge but also a pretty impressive restaurant. Small bites offered such as the mouth watering crackle pop roll which is essentially a spicy tuna roll but crisped to perfection on the outside, to the Swedish meatball skewer are all a must try while you’re here. The signature cocktails here live up to the hype, and it’s not uncommon to see smoke rising from the brim of the glasses around the bar [dry ice speciality drinks]. If you like a little spice try the cocktail affectionately titled “fever”. In my opinion this ever changing, turbo charged hot spot is a guaranteed blast no matter what night it’s open. 1237 Lincoln Rd
