Home to The Social Club, a long-time brunch hotspot in Miami, the boutique property’s new upscale dining and entertainment experience further solidifies its established position in the local dining scene 

Located oceanfront in the heart of South Beach’s Art Deco District, the newly renovated Kimpton Surfcomber Hotel is excited to announce its brand-new recurring dining concept, Cabana Nights at Kimpton Surfcomber. Debuting its very first iteration over three nights on December 28-30, 2021, the upscale alfresco affair is masterminded by the brilliant culinary stylings of the hotel’s Executive Chef, Javier Carballo, and enhanced with exciting live entertainment. Poised to become the area’s next to-be-and-be-seen this winter and beyond, the seasonal dining soirée will be held in the property’s posh and picturesque Vines Cabanas.

“Throughout our tenured experience in providing guests and locals with beloved dining experiences at our signature outlets and high-profile culinary events, Kimpton Surfcomber has earned a well-deserved reputation as a bona fide South Beach foodie destination,” said Jason Jones, Kimpton Surfcomber Hotel’s General Manager of Restaurants & Bars. “With our new Cabana Nights concept, we’re offering guests and locals the chance to enjoy a curated selection of top-of-the-line culinary and beverage offerings in a unique and upscale setting, in addition to an array of entertainment — all at a great value. Whether you’re on a romantic double date, celebrating a special birthday, or getting together with family after the holidays, Cabana Nights won’t disappoint.”

The Inspiration

Taking its cues from the sophistication and excellence provided by social clubs in the 1930s and 40s, and lively vibes from traditional dinner shows, Cabana Nights brings a fresh new concept to the Miami dining scene. Designed to encourage guests to linger and connect past their meals, the experience will feature an exclusive menu of Chef Carballo’s inspired culinary delicacies, top-shelf wines, hand-crafted cocktails, and crowd-pleasing live entertainment.

The Location

Cabana Nights will take advantage of Kimpton Surfcomber’s The Vines Ivy Upper Cabanas area, which boast a privileged and private spot, perched on adjacent balconies that overlook the pool deck, enhanced by elegant lighting and gently swaying palm trees. The unique and intimate space allows seating that exclusively accommodates parties of four, at minimum and parties of ten at maximum – making Cabana Nights the perfect setting for groups of friends and families.

The Talent

Cabana Nights’ dinners will provide a showcase for Executive Chef Javier Carballo, who headlines the property’s signature restaurant, The Social Club, as well as High Tide Beach Bar & Grill. With more than a decade of chef experience in the Miami culinary scene, the Uruguayan-native chef pulls inspiration from the cultural influences of his Spanish and Italian grandparents. Each evening of Cabana Nights begins with a welcome cocktail, an amuse bouche, and the chance to meet the chef. From there, guests will enjoy four perfectly prepared courses, all served family style, reflecting the new “grazing” dining trend. The dishes, each served with a curated fine wine pairing, include:

  • Hamachi Tiradito (Raw yellowtail sashimi style with citrus yuzu sauce, avocado mousse, bubu arare)
  • Scallops di Tarragon (Smoked trout caviar, prosciutto di parma, passion fruit mousse)
  • Tuscan Bone-In Porterhouse (Sea salt, white, pink, black, green, tellicherry, Szechuan, allspice peppercorns, cognac-porto sauce, truffle butter, confit smashed creamer potato)
  • Reverse Golden Oreo (Vanilla bean crushed cookies, ganache chocolate mousse, gold flakes)

The Entertainment

Chef Javier’s delicious dishes are just the beginning of the delights that Cabana Nights has in store. The “modern supper club”-style setting will be further elevated by nightly entertainment, including DJs, live bands, a jazz quartet, and roving performers, such as a magician and an electric violinist.

Additional Details:

  • Dates and Time: 12/28, 12/29 and 12/30 at 7:30 PM
  • Starting Dinner Ticket Prices: $135/person (4-person party minimum; 10-person party maximum)

Tickets will be released for sale closer to the event date.
