Looking toward the New Year, one of the projects we’re most curious to see completed is CIM Group’s massive Miami Worldcenter. What Now reported Thursday on a new restaurant tenant signed to the project, Canadian chain Earls Kitchen + Bar. Some restaurant and retail locations in the development have opened already, including Sephora and Brasserie Laurel, the Cuban-inspired French brasserie from South Florida Chef and James Beard Nominee Michael Beltran’s Ariete Hospitality Group.

But this reminds us: AHG has another concept coming to Miami Worldcenter. El Vecino, a “high-end, first-class cigar bar” is slated to open on the ground floor of Miami Worldcenter’s Caoba apartment tower, situated at the corner of the Seventh Street promenade and Northeast First Avenue.

El Vecino will open in a space of about 1,600 square feet, including both indoor and outdoor space. Along with cigars, it will offer a full bar, plus light eats, including head cheese croquetas, charcuterie, and like.

It’s still not quite clear when El Venico will open its doors. What Now reached out to AHG Chief Development Officer Michael Falsetto on Friday. Falsetto declined to comment on an opening timeline for the cigar bar concept.
