Awards for Employees Only Miami

BEST COCKTAIL IN MIAMI

2018 TIME OUT MIAMI AWARDS

Ready Fire Aim at Employees Only Miami, New York—there’s practically a direct line connecting both cities. Something else that binds us? Employees Only. We’re among the lucky handful of cities to claim an outpost of the West Village bar and its signature mescal cocktail: Ready Fire Aim. It’s the essential drink for anyone fond of the smoky spirit, in part because few bartenders in this city are as serious about mixing it in a cocktail as the uniformed folks at EO. Judges’ take: “The Ready Fire Aim is a good one: mescal, pineapple, habanero. We have a joke behind the bar when people come up to order mescal, they look both ways first and then sort of whisper, Do you have…mescal? Mescal is one of those things that's still sort of new.”

2018 MIAMI NEW TIMES BEST BARTENDER

2018 MIAMI NEW TIMES BEST BARTENDER

Best Bartender: Courtney Lane. Her given name may be Courtney, but like many badasses — Madonna, Cher, Beyoncé — this 26-year-old bartender is simply known as Lane. Starting out, as most drink slingers do, Lane did her share of working at dance clubs and socials in Gainesville, where she opened cans of Bud Light and poured rum and Cokes made with cheap well liquor. The petite blonde decided there's more to life behind the stick, and from there it's been accolade after accolade. In 2015, Lane got her big break working the artist and media bar at III Points. From there, it's been an uphill trajectory, with Lane working at what are arguably Miami Beach's finest cocktail bars — Employees Only and Broken Shaker. At the bar, she's a whirling dervish of shaking, mixing, and pouring. Recently, she and her Employees Only partner won top prize at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival's Art of Tiki competition for a drink they created. Lane is someone whom young girls should strive to be and everyone wants to know — a talented, driven woman who will fix you the best cocktail of your life.
