Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) June 16, 2016
Jon Mroz, who owns Jacksonville’s famed Myth Nightclub, recently announced the opening of Element Bistro & Craft Cocktail Lounge on the same premises. The goal of Element is to source the freshest foods direct from local farmers markets and serve the most original cocktails in town. Its fresh, organic dishes are made by Element’s head chef who studied at Le Cordon Bleu, where he graduated at the top of his class.
“Element came from a love of uniquely designed drinks, combined with a healthier approach to bar food,” said Mroz. “Noticing the healthier lifestyle trends that young business professionals in the downtown Jacksonville area are embracing, I thought it was the right place at the right time to take a leap and open a lifelong dream of mine while filling a market void.”
Element eschews traditional, unhealthy fried bar foods in favor of light and healthy fare. Element Bistro offers an array of salads, wraps, panini and healthy entrees, such as vegan black bean burger, pan-seared scallops, honey-glazed salmon and much more.
In addition to its creative dishes, Element, which is also a bar and lounge, has concocted a unique mix of drinks. It features a wide selection of handcrafted cocktails combined with locally sourced fruits and herbs, and each drink is mixed by some of the city’s top mixologists. Signature cocktails include the Element’s Garden, comprised of tequila, fresh lime juice, agave nectar, 12 cilantro leaves and chile pepper; and Earth Greyhound, which consists of tea-infused vodka, grapefruit juice, grapefruit bitters, St. Germain and orange marmalade shaken and strained. Elements also has a nightly happy hour and live music.
As for Myth, the nightclub is the result of over a decade of world travels. “Being fortunate enough to see, attend and perform at some of the planet’s top musical venues, I paid close attention to their amazing designs, while taking note of the lighting programming, richness of sound, warmth of bass, attention to detail, and their welcoming environments,” said Mroz. “I combined my findings to build a world-class venue that rivals that of the larger markets, such as New York, Miami, and Ibiza, here in Jacksonville.”
Element Bistro & Craft Cocktail Lounge and Myth Nightclub were created to bring something fresh, new and exciting to the Jacksonville area. After patrons indulge their palates at Element Bistro & Craft Cocktail Lounge, they can indulge their senses and dance the night away at Myth Nightclub. Boasting the only LED video ceiling in Jacksonville, Myth Nightclub strives to integrate organic design and technology. With three unique spaces, there is a place for everyone.
