Bloom Skybar, at the Langford Hotel

Bloom Skybar is located at the top of the Langford Hotel, in the heart of Downtown Miami. Previously called Pawnbroker, before Langford was taken over by Eurostar Hotels, Bloom Skybar hasn’t actually changed all that much despite the name. Although the Langford is an extensively renovated historic bank building in the beaux arts architectural style, Bloom’s aesthetic is kind of a mashup between steampunk and midcentury modern. Nestled among the towers of Downtown Miami, the indoor-outdoor bar has views of the cityscape in three directions. It’s great for after work cocktails.
