The barmeli concept began 2013 as a “hole in the wall” wine & tapas bar on 79th street. Tired of the regular offerings at most local bars, Meli realized it was time in Miami to create a different kind of wine bar! Offering unusual grape varietals & weekly wine tastings, Barmeli quickly became a local hot spot .
Eager to share her passion for Mediterranean wine, Meli sought out small, family owned wine producers that made wine with love, integrity and minimal intervention.
By 2016, due to its overwhelming popularity, a move to a larger location was inevitable . Now known as barmeli69 on 69th Biscayne, the move proved to be a success.
Today, owner Liza Meli with her Greek (opa) influence & executive Chef Christophe Bibard with his French (ooh la la) flair, combine their talents, alongside the Barmeli team, to offer you a unique dining experience. Barmeli69 remains a local favorite & true hidden gem
