Barcelona's Two Schmucks takes over Sweet Liberty this weekend

This weekend, you won't need a plane ticket to Barcelona to check out one of the city's best bars.

On Sunday, November 14, from 8 p.m. to midnight, the Spain-based bar that opened in 2017 is coming to Miami. Two Schmucks will be taking over Sweet Liberty, bringing its "Five-Star Dive Bar" concept to the beloved Miami Beach bar.

Known for being among Barcelona’s favorite bars serving up serious cocktails in a relaxed and fun-filled environment, Two Schmucks is well-known for its #26 spot on the "World’s 50 Best Bars" list.

It's quite an honor for a bar initially launched as a pop-up series. Owned by bartenders Moe Aljaf and AJ White, who met in Oslo and moved to Barcelona together, an early series of events was made possible on a shoestring budget. When a proper bar was finally erected, the duo used recycled materials the two fashioned with their own hands. As the concept grew — and outgrew its britches — the pair were forced to rethink operations, offering a more permanent space for imbibers to visit.

Today, that DIY ethos continues to be part of everything Two Schmucks does, including a US popup tour Aljaf and White launched last year in partnership with Fords gin — which, sadly, never made it to Miami.

Now, their team is finally bringing its neighborhood vibe of El Raval, one of Barcelona’s most diverse and multicultural areas, to Miami where they'll offer their flavor-packed drinks to the Magic City.

At Sweet Liberty, the one-day popup will feature cocktails priced at $16 each from the team's unique "Don’t Be a Dick, Be a Schmuck" menu.

Offerings will include cocktails like the Melon, Cheese & Pepper made with Fords gin, Dolin dry vermouth, cantaloupe cordial, Peychaud’s Bitters, and mozzarella cheese foam; Christiane’s Salad made with Fords gin, aquavit, white chocolate, cucumber, dill, greek yoghurt, and whey; the Tartine made with Fords gin, Woodford Reserve bourbon, raspberry, Oloroso sherry, cold brew cordial, and toasted bread; the Schmuck 50/50 Martini made with Fords gin, Dolin blanc and dry vermouths, pear eau de vie, orange bitters, white balsamic; and Butternut Splash made with Woodford Reserve rye, butternut squash, faux lime, saline, smoked butter, and thyme.
