KAIDO is a Japanese-inspired cocktail lounge set to open in Miami’s Design District in November 2018. Guests will enjoy a cozy Tokyo-style drinking den nestled in one of Miami’s most artistically driven areas, featuring innovative cocktails by in-house mixologist Nico de Soto and thoughtfully prepared Asian dishes developed by renowned chef Brad Kilgore.

As night falls, Kaido’s sleek décor—including a custom made 1,000 Butterfly Knife chandelier—and DJ-ready sound system will make this second-floor lounge a leading force in South Florida’s cocktail renaissance and Miami Design District’s entertainment evolution.

Additionally, Kaido will feature small plates, crudos, robatayaki and other dishes focusing on fresh ingredients and bright local and international flavors. Kilgore’s unique style will shine in the form of sharable appetizers, such as the uni Fondue and Wagyu Katsu Sandwich, perfectly complimenting de Soto’s beautiful cocktails and large format drinks for the table, and forging a seamless and adventurous culinary marriage in the heart of the Design District.
