The Night Aquatic

The Night Aquatic is a flagship event and GRAND OPENING OF MIAMI OYSTER WEEK. Join us as we feast on a cornucopia of sustainable & responsible seafood paired with premium wine, champagne, beer & cocktails to recreate what could have been scene cut out of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Consider dressing “in character”. 

To kick of the First Annual Miami Oyster Week we are doing something completely different.  The location of the event will not be revealed before the day of the event and then, only to ticket holders.

The venue will be located within the city of Miami or Miami Beach. We want to curate this event with the interesting and interested, adventurous & epicurious gourmands of Miami who seek an alternative scene that will be the single most impressive oyster and sustainable / responsible seafood experience on Earth, on that night.

Oyster aficionados & the bivalve curious will enjoy unlimited consumption of featured oysters, beer, wine, champagne and cocktails in the spirit of Capt Zissou and Yves Jacques Cousteau, a couple of our heroes.  

The oysters featured for this event are EMPIRE OYSTERS. These are wild oysters, hand caught by scuba divers who forage for them in the near shore waters of Long Island Sound. This is a rare oyster indeed. Learn all about them in this short film:
