Taubman Realty Group and Live! Hospitality & Entertainment partnered to create Vivo! Dolphin Mall, which will feature 62,000 square feet of dining and entertainment space with an expansive 30,000-square-foot al fresco plaza set to debut this summer. Vivo! will provide a destination for premium entertainment, food, drinks and first-class hospitality in Miami.
“It’s been incredible working with Taubman Realty Group to bring this world-class dining and entertainment experience to life at Dolphin Mall,” Scott Steenrod says, chief operating officer of Live! Hospitality & Entertainment. “For over two decades, our Live! brand has dramatically changed the entertainment experience all around the country. Vivo! Dolphin Mall will bring even more energy and excitement to an already bustling destination, including best-in-class food and drink, premier live music and entertainment, and first-class hospitality that our Live! brand is known for nationwide. We can’t wait to debut Vivo! this summer, including bringing Sports & Social and PBR Cowboy Bar to Florida for the first time and welcoming Sergio’s authentic Cuban cuisine to the District.”
With multiple food and beverage concepts, Vivo! Dolphin Mall features three signature areas, including its sports center, Sports & Social, a curated dining, entertainment, sports viewing and social concept. The space will feature three bars, live music, weekly entertainment, and nostalgic arcade games in a sports-watching atmosphere. Featuring state-of-the-art audio-visual technology, it will offer a 50-foot LED screen that allows for simultaneous viewing of multiple games and sporting events. Game days will feature an electric environment with emcees, DJs, live fan cams, competitions, and games. From its made-from-scratch kitchen, the 17,000-square-foot domain will offer an elevated menu conceived by James Beard Award Nominee Chef John Suley. Guests can enjoy a full menu for lunch and dinner and an indulgent brunch experience on the weekends. The bar’s beverage program will include creative craft cocktails, specialty drinks, and an extensive line-up of local and national brews on tap.
“Our multi-center partnership with Live! Hospitality & Entertainment comes to life for the first time with Vivo! Dolphin Mall,” William Taubman says, president and chief operating officer of Taubman Realty Group. “We are dedicated to engaging our customers with the absolute best in entertainment and experiences and this project will provide unparalleled enjoyment within this competitive market.”
Anchoring the Vivo! Dolphin Mall complex will be PBR Cowboy Bar. The venue is part of a partnership with PBR (Professional Bull Riders), the world’s leading bull-riding organization. It will feature an authentic Country Western spirit along with entertainment and nightlife. The 10,000-square-foot venue will offer high-energy music, two expansive bars, private VIP tables with bottle service, world-class sound and lighting, and a mechanical bull.
“PBR Cowboy Bar is a thriving concept and an important part of our sport’s expansion off the dirt through an expanding partnership with The Cordish Companies,” Sean Gleason says, Commissioner and CEO of PBR. “As Western culture and our sport surge in popularity, Vivo! Dolphin Mall is an ideal place for the 13th good-time cowboy bar. We can’t wait to welcome South Floridians and visitors alike to come in and ‘Be Cowboy.’”
