The Rum Line To Unveil Mural By Local Artist Nicole Salgar


Caribbean inspired al-fresco bar, The Rum Line, is bringing the industry and community together with the unveiling of a special mural painted by local artist, Nicole Salgar. The project will be officially revealed in a celebration on Sunday, June 21, 2015 from 8PM to 12AM.

Salgar, sister of Miami bartender Louis Salgar who tragically passed away last year, drew inspiration for the mural by the history of the rum line, a time in Florida’s past where rum was bootlegged and shipped through underground channels, as well as her late brother’s passion for the city. “Louis wanted to contribute to the growth of this city positively in the way he knew how – by bartending and bringing joy to people through music – and now I’m doing the same, using my talent as an artist,” says Salgar. The mural will feature vibrant and tropical expressions evoking a sense of vintage Miami.

Attendees can enjoy a complimentary coastal seafood broil to pair with The Rum Line’s menu of award-winning cocktails by Bar Director, Rob Ferrara.  A portion of the night’s proceeds will go to the Louis Salgar Fund, a charity founded by Nicole, which provides scholarships to underprivileged youth who need assistance in getting an education in vocational trades such as music or bartending.

The Rum Line is tucked away on the terrace of the St. Moritz Tower at the iconic Loews Miami Beach Hotel – adjacent to its award-winning hotspot Lure Fishbar at 1601 Collins Ave.  Stop by The Rum Line for a drink and casual conversation Thursdays through Sundays from 6PM to 2AM. For private event inquiries or table reservations for large groups, please call (305) 695-0110.
