Pitbull Is Opening a Miami Bar with More Than 50 Mojitos

Pitbull knows how to party, and now Mr. Worldwide is taking the party to the people. This summer, Pitbull is opening a restaurant and nightlife spot called iLov305 in Miami Beach with more than 100 cocktails on the menu—more than 50 of which are Mojitos.

Mr. 305 embodies Miami, and iLov305 will too with its focus on a cocktail that has a strong case as the city’s official drink. To state the obvious, iLov305 is not a place you should feel guilty about ordering the cocktail that’s notoriously annoying to make. There are more ways to make a Mojito than you could possibly imagine: with the mint, without the mint, frozen in a shot or dosed with wine. Hopefully iLov305 will have them all.

“iLov305 says it all,” Pitbull said about the project, according to Food&Wine. “I want everyone to feel, see, share the same passion and love I have for Miami. iLov305 will have the most energy that Ocean Drive has ever seen, dale!”

The waiting room will have cigar rollers greeting guests, with a Havana-inspired Daiquiri bar close by. The restaurant portion will have a mix of seafood, Cuban and comfort food. Then there’s Pitbull’s private bar, the Dale! room, that can only be accessed by the general public when the man himself isn’t there. Despite that restriction, surely people will be able to find entertainment enough in the somewhat excessive Mojito selection.

Dale.
