The Abbey in South Beach Closing for Two Months
|Abbey closing. Pandemonium to ensue.|
Owners of that run down, sorry excuse for a building where the Abbey is located (at 1115 16th Street, Miami Beach, between Alton Road and Lenox Avenue) -- which by the way is part of what makes the bar one of our favorites -- are finally getting around to doing some much needed renovations. Can we expect to see a new improved Abbey when she reopens in mid-September. Hardly. The repairs are structural and air conditioning related. In other words, the Abbey will be exactly the same in the fall as it has been for every single day of its 15 years of existence.
Luckily, there is a some good news with the bad. There will be a grand reopening party when things are finished. And that's just another reason to go to one of our favorite spots for some libation liberation.
