“We envisioned the food and beverage program at Arlo Wynwood to be as dynamic as the neighborhood itself and representative of the best that Miami has to offer,” he said Oleg Pavlov, Founder and CEO of Quadrum Global and Founder of Arlo Hotels. “By partnering with James Beard finalist Executive Chef Bradley Kilgore, who oversees the hotel’s culinary program, and Bar Lab to develop the concepts for each of the hotel’s dining venues, we bring two of the most iconic names in the industry together and go all out bringing them together under one roof to create the city’s most anticipated travel destination.”

Known for catapulting Miami’s cocktail scene to national fame in 2009 with the opening of James Beard finalist and three-time Top 50 Bars in the World award winner Broken Shaker, Bar Lab has since redefined the hospitality industry by offering unique, eclectic Food and beverage programs for their own venues and companies worldwide.

In 2015, Kilgore redefined the Miami dining scene when he opened Alter in Wynwood, a progressive American restaurant that gained international acclaim for carefully crafted dishes using exotic ingredients.
