Once inside, guests find themselves on an outdoor porch with a tropical garden that creates an intimate atmosphere, La Otra’s signature disco balls and lush plants all hanging from the ceiling. Plush mix and match chesterfield sofas surround the outdoor space. A focal indoor/outdoor, 360 degree, bar anchors the space and provides ample access to guests. The outdoor space gives guests a front-row seat to check out the iconic Miami skyline, the famous graffiti walls of Wynwood and from time to time a passing train.

La Otra is open only Friday and Saturday, but there are plans to operate more nights in the near future. Friday nights, patrons can enjoy an extended happy hour from 5 to 11 p.m. during the bar's Friday I’m in Love party, which will offer “great deals on drinks and quality music,” according to Odio. The extravagant and ostentatious shows with which La Otra hopes to distinguish itself will be the main feature of Saturday evenings.“At the end of the day, we just want people to enjoy themselves, whether that’s by dancing on the bar or dancing on the furniture," Odio says. "We want to show them a good time and give them some good-quality entertainment and service, all in a beautiful setting. That’s the backbone of the business we’re in.” (Source: www.miaminewtimes.com)
