El Patio is unlike anything in Wynwood—which, considering the depth of options in the trendy art district, is high praise. The mostly outdoor bar manages to be intriguing enough for visiting tourists, while maintaining a loyal following of locals. The relatively new spot is Latin— Colombian, specifically—and shows its influence everywhere you turn. Certain furniture was actually shipped over from Colombia, the homeland of co-owner Nicolas Hoyos, which gives the bar a funky abuela vibe, and resident DJ, Mr. Pauer, curates a masterful playlist of old school Latin, reggae, electro, and everything in between to guarantee hips never stop shaking. Add to all that one of Wynwood’s best happy hours (featuring $1 beers and $4 cocktails) and you’ve got a place worth showing up early and staying late.
