Every area in Miami has bars and lounges that stand out in their own right. You won’t have to look very hard to find a nice place for a happy hour or late night cocktail. If you’re staying in a hotel, there’s probably a watering hole right in your lobby. If there’s not, ask the concierge for recommendations on places to try. Let them know what you’re looking for—live music, haute-mixology or a sports bar to watch the game. Miami Beach caters to an international crowd ready to mix and mingle on vacation. Wander into the Art Deco boutique hotels and swanky luxury high rises where stunning hotel bars run the gamut from historic glitz to poolside tiki. Try the Rose Bar inside the Delano’s dramatic lobby or the romantic indoor/outdoor Sunset Lounge at the Mondrian South Beach. Raise a glass to your vacation at the Lapidus Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton South Beach. At The Play Bar & Lounge at Circa39 boutique hotel you can play a game of chess while taking advantage of their daily happy hour. Keep your health in mind at Carillon Lounge, the bar at Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa, where mixers are made in-house and drinks are served alongside healthful snacks. If you like a setting that is refined yet approachable, stop by 1826 Restaurant & Lounge, offering a seasonal menu, located in the heart of South Beach. It’s not all tourist hot spots on the Beaches. Dives like Mac’s Club Deuce, Abbey Brewing Company, Purdy Lounge, and Abraxis cater to a laid-back locals crowd. Head off the beach and explore the mainland’s favorite drinking spots. Coconut Grove, a village by the bay, is a college hangout where University of Miami students take advantage of specials at the laid-back dives that line the streets. Coral Gables, Downtown and Brickell have active happy hour scenes. These business-heavy areas are full of professionals loosening their ties after a long workday. Bar 50 at Hyatt Regency in Coral Gables is popular amongst business professionals visiting the area for their 2 for 1 happy hour. Other popular after work bars in Coral Gables include The Bar, The Local, Tarpon Bend, The Globe and Fritz & Franz Bierhaus. In Downtown, check out Tobacco Road and Blackbird Ordinary for local’s favorite spots. For incredible views with your drink, Area 31 overlooks Biscayne Bay from the 16th floor of the Epic Hotel. Later in the night, head over to The Stage, a live music venue in the Design District with both indoor and outdoor bars that host a wide range of musical styles nightly.
