About Kork Wine & Cheese:
Reminiscent of a modern speakeasy with wood floors, over-sized leather couches and iron chandeliers, Kork Wine & Cheese joined the burgeoning Downtown Miami restaurant and nightlife scene in fall 2011. Conceptualized by Will Edwards, award-winning music producer and owner of long-time Brickell favorite Transit Lounge, Kork is a 3,000 square-foot, dual-level wine bar, cheese shop and underground cellar. Patrons can select from over 3,000 bottles of wine, available both by the bottle and glass, with bottles available for retail purchase. The hidden gem of Kork is its underground wine cellar, formerly a bomb shelter during the Cuban Missile Crisis in the 1940s. The downstairs retail and tasting cavern, with a special "Rare Room" that offers a broad selection of rare and limited vintages, now houses a long wooden communal tasting table, over 3,000 bottles of wine and live jazz Thursday through Sunday. Kork Wine & Cheese is located at 2 South Miami Ave in Miami, Florida.
