Located on the lower level of the Gale Hotel, the Regent Cocktail Club has a great vibe. Classy decor, subdued lighting and posh seating areas coupled to the live music and excellent service make for a wonderful evening. We will definitely be back the next time we are in South Beach.

Cool little cocktail bar tucked away behind lobby of Gale Hotel. I had a Rum Old Fashioned, which was really good. Another friend had a dirty martini which she said was good. Cocktail list wasn't extensive but what they did make was solid. A singer set up around 11 pm and did interesting, jazzy takes on modern songs. Overall, nice spot to chill with friends if you don't want to hit the crowded clubs of south beach.

My wife and I love this place. It’s a dark and kind of small lounge inside the Gale hotel in Miami Beach.

Speakeasy atmosphere, far from the blasted party craziness of other Miami Beach areas, it has a Chicago feel to me, which is a good thing in my book.

We went a few times and found some live music acts that were very good, I remember two young brothers playing guitars….amazing.

The drinks are done with professionalism here, bartenders know what they are doing. Prices? In the Miami Beach range, you know what I mean, but definitely I’d rather pay $ 15 for a nice cocktail here, sit on a leather sofa with some nice music, live or background than pay the same for some raucous SoBe place for a watered down cocktail.

Regent Lounge is a place where my wife and I really relax when we go, it’s just like the way a lounge should be; most of lounges down here become clubs, with loud music and overpriced “imitation” cocktails. Regent is cool, warm at the same time, and yes, if you are on a first time, this is a great place to end your evening (okay, I know, you don’t really want to end it here, but you know what I mean…).

We go there when in Miami Beach, it’s become one of our favorite places, and it’s perfect for an after dinner relaxation if you just ate at nearby Quality Meats restaurant.

We had planned on visiting the Regent Cocktail Club a few months ago when we were in town for a friends wedding, with a small group of people. We had time to kill before the wedding, but in the end decided to wait, which I'm glad we did, because I would have hated to have raved about the reviews we read regarding this location, only to be disappointed. So fast forward a few months and here we are having a bit of a staycation for the Labor Day Weekend. We did some touring around and when the Regent Cocktail Bar opened at 7pm, we found ourselves a seat the at the bar at about 7:15pm. There was no one else there. The bartender gave us the list of the night's specials, while he continued to set up the bar. I have always been a believer that when a place opens, they should be open to doing business immediately and customers should not have to wait while they are still setting up. In this case, he and his helper were still setting up at 7pm. Another couple walked in a few minutes later and they also had to wait.

We ordered drinks, every night there is a different special. The drinks are $14 each, plus a gratuity automatically added on top. The liquor is measured out exactly, there is no pouring as a professional bartender would do. I ordered a green chartreuse cocktail and while it was good, it was very small, in a very small martini-like glass. My honey ordered his drink and it ended up being slightly over 1/2 a cocktail glass with a giant ice cube. (We love the big ice cubes, in fact, we have the molds in our freezer to use ourselves). But 1/2 a glass? Again, not worth the $$. And, they don't serve any bar bites at all, so we were drinking on an empty stomach.

The atmosphere is nice, it looks like an old time speakeasy, with big comfy couches, they put some music on which was really nice. Apparently they have live music at 10pm, which we did not partake of, so I can't speak for it.

The bar setup is very pretty and they have fresh fruit sitting on the bar, I assume for drinks, since they said that it was not for consumption.

I can't say I'd return here, the bartenders were not friendly, they didn't even attempt to engage their customers and we left with such disappointment and feeling like it was totally not worth the money spent. And spending money for quality food, drinks and service is not something we have any problem with.

I would return to the area, but not to this bar again

It's our anniversary and we walked to the Regent from our B&B. It was Friday night about 8:00. Worst experience ever. There were exactly 4 people in the lounge and 4 bartenders. Pretty good odds, right? We arrived and were not acknowledged. Sat for 20 minutes and not one of the bartenders asked for our order. Two of the bartenders even walked past us. Unbelievable. We finally approached the bar and asked why they didn't ask for our order and they said they didn't see us and besides they don't offer table service. We complained to the manager and he said he was sorry but too busy to do anything about it. Seriously, there are better cocktail lounges in Miami. Don't bother with this one.

I have been to The Regent two years ago already. It is one of a few top classic cocktails bars in Miami. Two years ago drinks where awesome. This days nothing changed. top drinks - good atmosphere. But, this year amhad some extra twist. I really rarely habe meet some so freindly and attentice bartender than Bettina Barnoczki ... her service was so unbeliebeable perfect, she made us come back 3 nights in row. if there was a 5+ - the + would go out to Bettina ! 👍

Walking into Regent Cocktail Club while live music is on going, along with three experienced bartenders ready to take on any crow size is totally an experience! Havana Nights on Wednesdays for instance is among the best days in which you could come by, ask for either Joel, Alberto or Melissa and ask for an Old Fashion done their way!

Probably one of the best places to take your loved one and listen to some great music while having one of the best cocktails. The bartenders Joel , Alberto, and Melisa are the absolute best. You can pick from one of their amazing cocktails or have a fully customized beverage of your liking. Literally nothing like this place. Fridays is where it’s at ! Madd jazz what a band

Joel, Melissa, and Alberto are the 3 musketeers. They literally make me whatever I want and it’s better than peanut butter and jelly. They are my fav cocktail bar! Also Madd Jazz has the best music on Fridays! 🕺🏻
