Booze Hound: BYOB at Wynwood Social Club
|Relax! You aren't going to get in trouble.|
Yup. 10 bucks and you can drink $10,000,000,000-worth of booze just so long as you supply it.
Originally, I heard that this fairly large space used to store industrial fans, but in actuality it served as a showroom for a company that sold furniture to hotels and restaurants in South America and the Caribbean. Sure, it's slightly less romantic, but the Wynwood Social Club makes up for it with quixotic, dim, amber lighting. The spot is adorned with tin lunch boxes, kitschy chairs-galore (we're talking schoolhouse desk/chair hybrids and one that looks like it sent via a time-machine from a barber's shop in the '70s) and a small stage that serves as a platform for local bands like last Saturday's Transitional Blues Band or tomorrow's Afro-Cuban amalgam jammers, Oriente.
And do they plan to open the club on nights other than Saturdays?
"We're available for private parties and maybe karaoke on Fridays."
|Can you still call them a bartender if they don't serve you booze?|
Another concern: Are people actually going to pay to get into the Wynwood Social Club on a Saturday gallery night when they can get drinks plus art for the bargain price of $0? I'm not sure, but let's see how these innovative-types "brainstorm together" and combat this particular obstacle.
