Area 31

Up here on the 16th floor of Miami’s Kimpton EPIC Hotel,

Area 31 has an enviable panoramic view of the glittering waters of the Biscayne Bay and Miami River. Our name is drawn from Fishing Area 31, an international zone designated by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization as a sustainable fishery, a vision that Area 31 embraces and advances. From the kitchen to the bar, we like to source local, so local, in fact, that sometimes we don’t even have to leave the premises! Our on-site herb garden provides fresh ingredients to both the kitchen and the bar and is located on our spectacular outdoor Terrace Lounge, Miami’s favorite elevated hangout. Habitually innovative, often breathtaking and always welcoming, Area 31 is here to make sure you’re never more than an elevator ride from a singular Miami experience.

Passionate about sustainability, Chef Alex Olivier blends his international culinary expertise with products from local farms and ranches to create an experience that’s casual and elegant all at once. “I like to introduce people to exotic flavors, ingredients from my South African upbringing, as well flavors from my travels. Food and travel are my two passions and I want guests to taste this in my food.”

With innovative cocktails crafted to match Chef’s seasonal food, our Brickell bar attracts a bubbly crowd at happy hour and beyond, taking Miami social life to soaring new heights.
