Miami has a new live music and community hangout at The Backyard
The Backyard is now open at The Doral Yard in Downtown Doral! The Doral Yard, a community gathering concept created by Della Heiman Goldkind of Yard Hospitality and Joseph Furst, founder of Place Projects, welcomes locals and visitors alike to this outdoor addition to The Doral Yard’s existing indoor food hall and events space, which opened in October 2020.
Housing a large live outdoor music stage with covered turf, an ample bar and self-serve seating, The Backyard offers Miamians a new live music venue with weekly events the entire family can enjoy. Catch live performances by local talent playing everything from Cuban son montuno and bolero son to jazz, soul and R&B, every weekend from Thursday through Saturday evenings and DJs on Sundays.
Upcoming music events include Jazz at The Yard with Nikki Kidd on Thurs. 8/26, Cortadito playing traditional Cuban tunes on Fri., 8/27 at 8 p.m. and singer songwriter, Yoli Mayor on Sat., 8/28 at 8 p.m., to name a few. Sundays are often reserved for DJs spinning beats to wind down the weekend. Visit www.thedoralyard.com/events for a full line up of events.
The Backyard also offers semi-private event spaces, a garden by Little River Cooperative and is also home to existing The Doral Yard sweets culinary vendor, Santo Dulce! Churros. A large screen for showing movies and sporting events as well as a private event space is coming soon, too.
And this is just the beginning–three more amazing food offerings will join the Backyard in October: The final stage of The Backyard, opening this fall, brings Barbakoa by Finka, the full service restaurant by Chef Eileen Andrade of Finka Table & Tap, featuring a fusion menu revolving around coal-fired fresh ingredients, along with Pokekai, creators of customizable Hawaiian poké bowls. Paletas Morelia will also set up a bigger, better kiosk in The Backyard.

-Plant-based and globally-inspired della bowls
-Authentic Venezuelan comfort food like ‘pollo en brasa’ or rotisserie chicken from un pollo
-Dim sum made from scratch daily by Yip
-The Bar at The Yard, a full-service bar serving cocktails, beer, wine, coffee, juices and more
