This week, you can visit Scarlett’s Cabaret, Hallandale Beach’s adult nightclub, for a chance to ogle a different kind of eye candy.
On Wednesday, May 4, RCI Holdings — the company that owns more than three dozen strip clubs and sports bars across the country, including Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami — will open a one-of-a-kind steakhouse inside Scarlett.
Rick’s Steakhouse and Lounge will offer customers a chance for an upscale late-night dining experience, whether they’re partying at the club or just going out for a meal, says RCI Management Chairman Ed Anakar .
The 3,000-square-foot facility inside Scarlett’s is inspired by RCI’s Rick’s Cabaret in New York, which also includes an on-site steakhouse.
“We always felt there was something missing in Scarlett. We imagined a space where you could really relax, where the music wasn’t as loud and where you could enjoy a good meal or a cigar,” says Anakar. new times. “After seeing the success we had with Rick’s Cabaret, we decided to bring that same experience to Miami.”
Separate from the main club – though located in the same building in a space previously used for private events – Rick’s offers guests an authentic restaurant and upscale lounge vibe.
Shawn Barnes, managing director of Scarlett’s, designed decor reminiscent of an upscale speakeasy, adorning the dimly lit space with black and gold leather sofas and banquettes, marble tables streaked with black and gold, a black felt pool table and gold chandeliers.
But can you participate in both varieties of meaty offerings – Rick’s and Scarlett’s – simultaneously?
Not exactly. While Rick’s will offer patrons a chance to experience a different side of Scarlett’s, the live action will remain at the nearby club, Anakar said, adding that table reservations are required for dinner or bottle service unless the guest is already at Scarlett’s.
“We wanted it to have that Miami feel – think a more luxurious lounge and vibe,” says Anakar. “Now you can spend an evening at the club and go next door to have a really good meal or just relax. It’s the best of both worlds.
Rick’s menu and kitchen are led by Executive Chef Bryan Doell, who previously held the position at The Palms Grille steakhouse inside Fort Lauderdale’s now closed Solid Gold.
While you can always order a burger, sandwich or flatbread from the regular menu served at Scarlett’s, at Rick’s you can find a menu that emphasizes premium meats, seafood and classic steakhouse sides.
“We focused on developing a number of high quality, standout dishes,” says Doell. “And although the steak is the star of the show, we wanted to make sure there was something for everyone.”
Menu options are priced from $29 to $72, including a ten-ounce Angus filet mignon, an 18-ounce Angus rib eye; and a 16-ounce Prime New York Classic Band; Seafood options include a nine-ounce Faroese salmon, colossal crabmeat cocktail, and Key West-style crab cakes served with lime aioli. Sides, priced at $6 to $8, include roasted mushrooms, truffle fries, grilled asparagus and Hasselback potatoes.
Another aspect that sets Rick’s apart: the hours. Open from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., the venue will be one of the only steakhouses in South Florida where you can dine well after midnight; The kitchen closes at 4am
“Trying to find a place where you can order a steak, have a high-quality experience, or sit down for dinner after 11 p.m. — your options are always limited,” says Anakar. “We had huge success in New York with these hours and we think it will work here too.”
Anakar notes that in addition to its menu and selection of premium spirits, wines and cigars, the new establishment will be one of the few restaurants in South Florida to accept Bitcoin.
“I think Rick’s will be a very special addition to Broward County. There is nothing like it here,” sums up Anakar.
