Bunbury Wine Bar Opening At Melo Group’s Square Station, Bringing Argentine Flair

Bunbury, a popular Miami wine bar and eatery, is relocating to Square Station in Downtown’s Arts & Entertainment District from Wynwood.

The Argentinian co-owners Paula Costa and Fernanda Orellano are partnering with fellow Argentinian developers the Melo Group, who built Square Station.

“We were looking for a restaurant that would embrace Square Station’s Downtown location, enhance the building’s walkable, outdoor environment, and that all of our residents would enjoy. Bunbury was a perfect fit,” said developer Carlos Melo, a principal with the Melo Group.

Bunbury will occupy 7,500 square feet of prime ground-floor space with ample indoor and outdoor seating at the base of the 34-story towers.

Expanding beyond the wine bar’s romantic dinner ambiance and wall of more than 100 hand selected wines, the new Bunbury introduces a fresh concept with the integration of Fonda Café by Bunbury. Retaining much of the menu, service and spirit that have contributed to the original wine bar’s success, Bunbury serves breakfast and lunch to locals and tourists in the area at Fonda Café. The new bar offers a classic old fashioned mixology serving inventive cocktails and a fully-equipped liquor bar.

Next door, the Melo Group is currently pre-leasing its next luxury rental development, Art Plaza Apartments, which are now finishing up construction and expected to welcome tenants by Summer 2019. Monthly rental rates at Art Plaza will start at $1,600.

Its a bold move especially with the mother of all road projects about to take over that entire area for years but they should do okay with the nearby residents and if they can stay afloat until the highway upgrade is done they’ll be set.

Happy to hear from someone like you who actually live in the area. All the whiners and boo-hooers always relating their complaints about Melo’s projects are really just a waste if time.

$1600/mo to START to live in overtown…..you can get an oceanfront 1 bedroom rental condo in Broward for that. This is why the middle class is leaving Dade. Only some trust fund hipster would find this desirable.

Nice, reasonable prices for lunch, good people, great food. I’ve been dreaming about 4-cheese empanada since I ate it.

Wow! What an ugly building. Look like the old apartment housing in the Bronx that was bulldozed years ago.

You and the Bronx can only wish they had apartment buildings that looked this good.

Just a lil info for you people that hardly ever step foot in the Bronx, a 2 bedroom will cost you about a million at Solaria Riverdale. And yes, it’s in the Bronx.

Obviously you care since you responded. It doesn’t matter if I can afford it or not. I just have to reply to dumb-ass comments. Bye Bye
