(MIAMI, FL) JANUARY 2008 – Segafredo Zanetti Espresso Café, loved around the world for its multi-sensory experience reflecting the lifestyle of the Italian café, opens its newest location at 1421 South Miami Avenue in the downtown Miami / Brickell area. Timed with the burgeoning growth of the Brickell area as well as the beginning of a New Year, Segafredo Brickell takes Italian café culture to a whole new level, featuring an impressive 8,500-square-foot indoor and outdoor seating area and a 2,000-square-foot on-premise boutique nightclub, Spazio Nero (Italian for Black Space).
Segafredo Brickell exudes a posh and luxurious atmosphere while at the same time offering guests the warmth and charm of Italian hospitality. As soon as guests arrive, they are enveloped in the chic yet comfy vibe of Segafredo Brickell’s grounds which feature eclectic antique furniture in the outdoor living room lounge areas. The elaborate red and white floral design matches Segafredo Zanetti Espresso Café’s signature colors. Inside the venue, exhibiting the same level of chic-meets-comfort as the exterior, guests will experience a true Italian-style café with a coffee bar with barstools, plush red leather couches and free Internet services. The Segafredo Brickell menu identity is based on its Italian heritage and, in addition to favorite espresso drinks and pastries, will offer a large selection of Italian-style food and café, music and signature cocktails.
Located within the restaurant, Spazio Nero is a lavish boutique night club that will be open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Embodying the nightclub’s name, the décor is outfitted in all things black, from the stylish black leather couches with silver buttons, to the black-tinted mirrors throughout, to the fleur-de-lis textured black-on-black wallpaper. The club features an elevated DJ booth, a one-of-a-kind advanced multi-zoned distribution audio system and a computer controlled lighting program by Infinite Audio Systems.
“Both Segafredo and Spazio Nero alike bring a new lifestyle to Brickell that has been missing until now,” said Segafredo Brickell co-owner Alejandro Ferllen. “We are a stylish café and lounge that’s high-energy and, yet comfortable enough for our guests to enjoy the surroundings; relax amongst friends and have a cup of coffee or a cocktail in a stress-free environment.”
The Brickell area is home to Miami’s most prominent financial entities, luxury high-rise condos and a fast-growing retail corridor – the perfect environment for the establishment’s trendsetting day-to-night concept. Segafredo Brickell offers a place to confer with clients over a cup of coffee, head to lunch breaks with co-workers, or relax and unwind with a cocktail for happy hour and then enjoy your night away at Spazio Nero.
