When Beily Santos
isn’t racing down
Ocean Drive on
things up at The
Clevelander. You might get
to try one of her
you’ll have to
catch her first.

he first thing you’ll notice about Beily is her speed;
she’s a comet eternally in a state of motion. Organizing,
prepping, cleaning, chatting, mixing, pouring. When
bionic arms become a reality, she’ll probably buy them in bulk,
as she’ll surely burn out their motors. “There’s a lot of volume
at The Clevelander, so you have to learn to keep up,” she says.
A continuous stream of guests come clomping in right off the
beach, sunburned, sandy and parched. Beily’s Comet sprints
into action and drops a couple of Miami Vices in front of them.
“I’ve seen that face before…it needs a drink that’s like an air-
conditioner for your mouth,” she laughs.
Beily may look like a belly dancer that got lost on her way
to a Shakira video, but she’s a true guy’s girl. Some March
Madness fans wearing blue & orange jerseys are cheering
maniacally, another set in opposing colors hold up their faces
with their hands. Agreeing to shots isn’t the problem, but
deciding on the liquor is. Beily makes an executive decision:
Baby Guinnesses for all.
The Cleve has many types of parties going on simultaneously
yet somehow it works. Attribute it to the fact that everyone —
from Albania to Zambia — can find something they like here.
“Spin a globe and wherever your finger lands, someone from
there has been here and I’ve served them,” she says.
