The Wynwood Arts District is heating up with the Electric Pickle Company’s newest room, the El Bolero Room.
Mark Alan Diaz of MAD Design Group collaborated with Electric Pickle owners William Renuart and Tomas Ceddia to design a room inspired by the post-war semblance of Chicago speakeasies and 1940s officers’ clubs.
Diaz was raised on anecdotes of his grandparents tearing up the dance floor in the 1940s at a club in Miami called El Bolero. This provided the inspiration to design a new, hipper version of the Electric Pickle’s second floor, clad with family heirlooms as decorations.
“The room is full of refurbished materials- wood used from the original building, decorations that came from consignment stores- we wanted to take the green approach, and use materials that were recycled, then revamped to look trendy and cool,” said Inbal Lankry, the marketing director for the Pickle.
The Electric Pickle and the El Bolero Room are open to clubgoers ages 21 and over. The El Bolero Room is open Fridays and Saturdays, as well as three Thursdays of every month. On Friday, the Elecric Pickle Company will be hosting its two-year anniversary with beats spinning in the El Bolero Room from the likes of Carl Craig and Mr. C, both internationally renowned DJs. The Electric Pickle always hosts an array of live music, with past acts including Spam All-Stars and Mount Kimbie, as well as other local independent bands and DJs.
Although El Bolero Room is only available at the end of the week, the first floor of the Electric Pickle is open from Wednesday to Saturday, with drink specials every night.
Put on your dancing shoes, head to Wynwood and you are bound to have a good night.
