Even if you don’t remember exactly how to recite your ABC’s, W XYZ Bar makes you feel like there’s nowhere else you’d rather be. This starts with bartender Victor Corzo who treats every customer like they’re an old friend. The contemporary décor is equally welcoming and highlighted by a wide variety of seating options from pert bar perches where the action is to private wing chairs you won’t want to leave, couches for hanging with friends and loungers by the pool. The fun and festive vibe continues with live music, a pool table, and ice-breakers like Jenga and Game of Thrones Monopoly for loosening things up over business drinks or to get you socializing with fellow bar patrons. Located in the newly opened Aloft Miami Aventura at the much-anticipated Aventura Park Square, it’s the perfect place to visit after power shopping at Aventura Mall or Bal Harbour Shops. Their “Live at Aloft” happy hour, Thurs.-Sun., 4-7 p.m. is a great time to check the place out; ALoftMiamiAventura.com.
