Downtown Miami Just Got ‘Lucky’ With This Hangout
February 2nd, 2012
The Lucky Clover Irish Pub
The latest addition to Downtown Miami, The Lucky Clover Irish Pub, diverges from the typical lounge-scene of Miami with its distinctive concept and design. Sprawling across 10,000 square feet throughout two levels of the Axis in Brickell, this Dublin-esque pub leaves nothing to be desired when it comes to the exceptional décor and delectable eats.
As I took my seat in one of the welcoming leather booths I couldn’t help being entranced by an eclectic assortment of things to look at. The collection of sights ranging from paintings of the Irish countryside engulfed in ornate gold frames, antique mirrors, vintage advertisements, and hundreds of old period photos creates a vibe that is both elegant and comfortable. The Spanish-based design firm, Retromania, certainly left no detail unnoticed while designing this trendy new pub.
Whether you are coming here for the pub-grub, the weekly happy hour, or the live entertainment, the wonderful atmosphere of this new eatery is undeniable.
On the Menu
With a menu this mouth-watering, it was hard for me to choose from all of the tasty eats. After gazing over the selections, I just couldn’t decide between two of the appetizers- so I didn’t! The “Lucky Sliders” definitely stayed true to their name; they were a perfectly fortunate combination of caramelized onions, brie cheese, and chipotle mayo piled on top of an Angus beef patty. I also couldn’t resist the “Steak Tid Bits” served with Guinness BBQ sauce for dipping and garlic cheesy bread. There was more than enough for my entire table to share!
For my meal, I chose to go with some of the more conventional Irish fair and opted for the corned beef sandwich. Lucky Clover’s standard combination of spicy mustard, sauerkraut, and provolone cheese on rye bread proves that you don’t have to mess with tradition.
Bottom line: If you’re looking for a traditional Irish experience, the Lucky Clover provides a unique and unforgettable time… without the cost of the plane ticket!
