Traymore by Michael Schwartz Unveils Sling Bar, a Night Market Cocktail Bar at COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach

Ocean Drive’s The List Party presided for official opening festivities last night.

Miami Beach has a new hideaway for a fresh taste of the exotic. Sling Bar, a night market cocktail bar opens tonight at Traymore by Michael Schwartz in the COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach.  Cocktails and bar snacks are inspired by the many flavors of Singapore, highlighting the bold and diverse food cultures of Southeast Asia that converge in the global city’s many festive night markets.  Set within the restaurant’s lush and tropical environment, Sling Bar’s energy is immersive, from its “hot coral” orange neon SLING sign, to an evocative video installation portraying circadian rhythms and the juxtaposition of their experience in nature and urban environments.

“Sling Bar is a great addition to the Traymore by Michael Schwartz experience,” says Schwartz. “Singapore is such a vibrant intersection of food cultures — I was able to experience its energy on a recent trip and was inspired by drinks, dishes and even new ingredients that have influenced the menu and cocktail recipes. We are excited to give guests an opportunity to taste something different on a visit to the property, whether joining us for a quick bite and drink at happy hour or making a night of it to dine at the bar.”

From light and refreshing to spirit forward and festive, Sling Bar’s cocktail program is inspired by night market flavors and highlights classic Asian cocktails with a Miami Beach inspired twist. Described as “culinary cocktails” Sling Bar’s libations are designed to be uncomplicated and perfectly paired with bar bites. In the ultimate homage to its name, the ‘SB Sling’ is Sling Bar’s preeminent cocktail and features Bombay East Gin, Benedictine PF Orange Curaçao, pineapple, lime and cherry cordial. Other cocktail menu highlights include the ‘Curry Colada’ with Havana Club Rum, Velvet Falernum, curry syrup, coconut creme, lime, passion fruit and the ‘Banana Daiquiri’ featuring Havana Club Rum, Craigellachie 13 Scotch, banana, lime and coconut.

Executive Chef Jorge Negron was inspired by traditional Singaporean street food flavors and culture when developing new menu items for the bar, incorporating craveable snacks and plates that speak to the diversity of cuisines from Malaysia and India to China and Indonesia inhabiting its neighborhoods. Presentation is simple and convivial, perfect for sharing and pairing with the cocktail list. Menu highlights include the Chicken Satay with peanut sauce, Steamed Snapper Dumplings with garlic oil, coconut sauce, the Young Coconut Salad – curry chicken, rice crisps and the Singaporean Style Stone Crabs seasoned with parsley green onions.

Sling Bar’s food complements Michael Schwartz’s menu at Traymore and celebrates in-season, local ingredients, in line with COMO’s award-winning restaurants worldwide which embrace sustainable sources and pay homage to the flavors of their different locations.

“I have a soft spot for this kind of food, growing up with it over Jersey Shore summers and from my time working in New York City. There’s nothing like warm, soft rye bread folded over tender, juicy slices of perfect pastrami to stick with you,” reflects Schwartz. “It’s no surprise we’ve been making bagels and brining and smoking our own pastrami for years at Michael’s Genuine® Food & Drink so I thought, why stop there? I think we’ve always had a deli we just didn’t package it that way. Now with our commissary kitchen dialed in over these past few years it’s time to turn it out. And don’t forget the pickle!”

The menu is built around Schwartz’s deli favorites and iconic items, beginning with made-to-order “Overstuffed Sandwiches” served on rye with a ½ sour pickle, and appetizing priced by the pound like the deli’s house-made pastrami. Deli meat sandwiches include Hot Pastrami ($16), Fresh Roasted Turkey with lettuce and tomato ($14) and a Pastrami-Turkey combo ($15). The “Make It Special” adds Russian dressing and coleslaw to any of the above for $3 more. Chicken Salad ($14), Egg Salad ($11) and Tuna Salad ($12) are served as sandwiches with lettuce and tomato, or in a 3 scoop mix or match Salad Platter ($16).

Swiss, American or Munster cheese can be added to any of the above for $3. Sandwiches come with condiments including Gulden’s mustard and mayonnaise. Pastrami, turkey, and all salads are available priced by the pound.

Homemade Bagels are baked fresh daily and come in Plain or Everything ($2) or sliced with cream cheese ($3). “The Works” ($17) is a fan favorite featuring your choice of bagel with smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomato, red onion and capers. Pick your desired mix of 13 bagels in the Baker’s Dozen ($21). Smoked Salmon ($45/pound) and cream cheese ($5/pound) makes a party.

Savor a taste memory in perfectly crumbly, creamy and thick homemade Whole 6” NY Style Cheesecake – it serves 6-8 and is available in plain ($42) and Strawberry ($49).
