Cafeina Celebrates Third Anniversary With Grand Opening of 1920s-Inspired Mezzanine
|Keeping it classy with Cafeina's new Mezzanine.|
So when a Wynwood hangout celebrates three years of beats and booze, it's a serious accomplishment. Especially when the fete consists of the grand opening of a new upstairs lounge.
That's exactly what will be happening at Cafeina this Thursday when the bar celebrates its third anniversary with the official debut of the 1920s-inspired Mezzanine.

At a time when Wynwood was beginning to make its mark on Miami's culture, Cafeina was the first full liquor bar in the area.
"I saw it more as a coffee shop actually," says Ivette Naranjo, who owns the bar on NW 23rd Street between NW Second and Third avenues. "I heard what was going on in the neighborhood and wanted to add on to it."
Three years later and you've got what many would consider a Wynwood staple.
"The key has been to stay true to the vision, which is a lounge," Naranjo insists.
"[You need to] keep your vision from the beginning and follow through the end. We stay true to Cafeina. It's always been the same."
Yet staying true to your vision doesn't mean you can't reshape the original idea.
