Dylan’s Candy Bar Opens in Miami Beach
Famed New York Candy Emporium Launches with Café and Full-Service Bar
MIAMI BEACH, FL (January 2013) – Dylan’s Candy Bar announces the opening of its Miami Beach store. Located on bustling Lincoln Road, the new South Beach retail outpost presents a selection of more than 7,000 candies, a café with outdoor seating, full service bar and personal candy shoppers for the most customized experience. Originally introduced in New York in 2001 by industry pioneer Dylan Lauren, Dylan’s Candy Bar adds a new dimension to Miami Beach’s shopping and culinary scene.
“We opened our first store 10 years ago in New York, fulfilling a childhood dream of mine to create the largest, most magical candy store,” said Dylan Lauren, Founder and CEO of Dylan’s Candy Bar. “Today, our stores attract so many fans of all ages and nationalities. It has truly exceeded all of my expectations. Now I’m thrilled to bring my love of color, design and the joy of candy to Miami.”
Set inside the former Ghirardelli storefront, a 3,500 square-foot Dylan’s Candy Bar offers shop-goers a worldly blend of candies, including novelty, nostalgic, holiday themed, international imports and a Color Your World bulk candy display. An exclusive Miami gummy mix with alligators, sunglasses and palm trees compliment fan favorite brands such as M&M Mars, Hershey’s and Jelly Belly.
The Dylan’s Candy Bar café, located on the main level of the store, features an indulgent menu with an assortment of sweet and savory dishes. Delectable ice cream sundaes, gourmet chocolate pizzas and white, milk and dark chocolate fondues are also offered to satisfy any sweet tooth. Mini pizzas and sandwiches will play to the diner who craves a more salty flavor. A full-service bar transforms Dylan’s into a day or night destination with both traditional drinks and candy-inspired cocktails such as Chocolate martinis and Pop Rocks® Explosion being served. Seating for up to 80 guests is available outside with table service open for late night munchies.
Dylan’s Candy Bar welcomes guests into what feels like a museum of curated candy, fitting perfectly into Miami’s budding art scene. A sexy, chic design blends with the store’s overall fun and whimsical mood. An oversized Dale Chihuly-inspired lollipop tree sits as the centerpiece; candy cane columns evoke childhood memories for adult shoppers and awe younger generations; a state-of-the-art backlit staircase playfully leads shoppers to the store’s second level. Candy inspired art, accessories and apparel fuse into the selection of edible offerings.
Loved by Hollywood A-listers like Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Alex Rodriguez, Serena Williams, Nacho and Delfina Figueras, and Tori Spelling, Dylan’s Candy Bar offers a customizable experience with its personal shopping program.
