After months of anticipation, The Backyard at The Doral Yard in Downtown Doral is now open to guests.
The community gathering concept created by Della Heiman Goldkind of Yard Hospitality and Joseph Furst, founder of Place Projects, is an outdoor addition to The Doral Yard’s existing indoor food hall and events space, which opened in October 2020.
The Backyard features a large live outdoor music stage with covered turf, bar and self-serve seating, as it looks to recreate some of the magic guests grew accustomed to at The Wynwood Yard. 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.
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.
The Backyard will continue to iterate post-open, with the final stage opening this fall, that 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.
Existing vendors at The Doral Yard include:
- 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
