With heavy hearts, we all shared in the loss of Sweet Liberty’s founding Father, John Lermayer, who was taken from us way too soon – just last year. John was the force and spirit behind Sweet Liberty, and an example of selfless and charitable action. A dedicated father, award-winning bartender, mentor, friend and die-hard New York Rangers fan, John was best known for his animated personality, enticing cocktails, his love for people, travel, and his son, Radek. It was John’s tireless work ethic and spirited personality that helped him create Sweet Liberty, a space that his neighbors and friends from all over the world can call home and a place to pursue happiness.
In honor of John, we will be celebrating his every-lasting name, inviting EVERYONE to join us at Sweet Liberty on Thursday, June 20th and Friday, June 21st, as we celebrate the life of John Lermayer and the proclamation declared by the city of Miami Beach. Starting Thursday, June 20th, come party with friends, family and pop-ups at the bar all night long. Beginning at 7pm, Sweet Liberty will play host to a rotation of internationally beloved food and beverage hotspot pop-ups, that are flying down their top bartenders to take over Sweet Liberty’s bar for the evening. Welcoming: Café la Trova (MIAMI), Basik (NYC), Katana Kitten (NYC), Ghost Donkey (NYC), Spare Room (LA) Occidental (DENVER), and special guest DJ who was also a long time and dear friend of John, Chris Bostick. Then on Friday, June 21st, the celebration continues with LIVE performances by Brendan O’ Hara and The Swayzees, followed by late night tunes with Reid Waters. Come pay tribute to John Lermayer’s life and legacy with us this weekend!
