L Bar Cocktail and Music Lounge Unveils Innovative New Cocktail Menu
Housed in the lobby of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is L Bar – the resort’s intimate, centerpiece cocktail bar and lounge. Here, guests can enjoy a varied selection of handcrafted cocktails made with seasonal produce and house-made syrups. L Bar recently unveiled a menu with nine new offerings including three Culinary Influenced libations that showcase familiar food combinations in a creative drinkable format.
L Bar’s new menu isn’t just about a rotation of drinks; everything from the categories to flavor profiles have been revamped. Designed to guide guests in the right direction, the menu has been divided into different sections, each with its own personality.
“Now in its third evolution, the newest menu at L Bar is a departure from anything we’ve done in the past,” says Morgan Rhule, Director of Beverage at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. “We’ve expanded our offerings to showcase timeless classics, paying homage to the cocktails that have paved the way for modern mixology, while staying true to our South Florida roots, highlighting the fresh and tropical flavors the region is known for.”
Culinary Influenced cocktails include the Bacon & Eggs featuring bacon-infused Buffalo Trace Bourbon, egg white, fresh lemon, honey and black pepper. For those looking for a pick-me-up, the Coffee & A Doughnut transforms the beloved on-the-go breakfast into an inspired drink. It features Herradura Reposado Double Barrel tequila, cold brew coffee, egg white and cinnamon, topped with a chocolate doughnut. Lastly, the Avocado Toast takes the ubiquitous menu item to a new level. A perfect mix of Don Julio Blanco tequila, Cointreau, fresh lemon and lime, sage, avocado and agave, this cocktail offers a sweet and savory rendition of this menu favorite.
Classics feature drinks that stand the test of time – no matter their history, these drinks continue to inspire both mixologists and guests. New Classics at L Bar include the Dark n’ Stormy – a Bermuda classic, made with Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum instead of the traditional Gosling’s Rum; the Bee’s Knees featuring Hayman’s Old Tom gin, honey, lemon juice and orange juice; the Pisco Sour – Pisco, fresh lime, egg white, bitters and orange oil essence; and the Kentucky Buck. Bucks are a family of drinks consisting of ginger beer, a spirit and a citrus element. Named after the state that birthed bourbon, L Bar’s Kentucky Buck is made with Bulleit Bourbon, lemon juice, strawberry bitters and ginger beer. With a history dating back to the 1920s, the Pegu Club (Tanqueray 10, fresh lime, Cointreau and bitters) originated in Myanmar, Burma when the British set up outposts across Asia.
Not So Classic selections reflect South Florida’s vibrant spirit. They are crisp, refreshing, fruit-based and easy to enjoy. The latest addition to L Bar’s Not So Classic offerings is the Hibiscus Punch made with Flor de Caña Rum, fresh lemon, hibiscus syrup, pineapple and raspberries.
L Bar offers something for everyone from signature cocktails and premium tequilas to unaged, unoaked mezcals, and local craft and imported beer, wine and champagne. Spirit Free creations are also available. Each thirst-quenching alcohol-free beverage is thoughtfully made with fresh ingredients inspired by the season. Creative options include Blood Orange Cooler with agave nectar, blood orange, mint and fresh lime; Grape Rosemary Smash with rosemary, green grapes, and fresh lime, topped with rosemary sprigs; and Watermelon Cilantro Fresca with cilantro, watermelon chunks, fresh lime and agave nectar.
L Bar is located at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at One Seminole Way in Hollywood, Florida. The lobby lounge and cocktail bar is open Sunday – Thursday, noon to midnight; Friday and Saturday, noon to 3 a.m. L Bar is also home to a regular rotating roster of live music entertainment from Thursdays to Saturdays.
