The central island bar at Yard House is ringed by an impressive array of tap handles, ranging from familiar classics to intriguing selections you've never actually seen in person before. On top of all that, the menu of American fusion cuisine includes street taco plates, steaks, pan-seared ahi tuna, and roasted turkey pot pie.
The Brickell ‘tini stalwart is your place for after work bites and drinks, with a menu full of with stuff like lollipop lamb chops, Thai chicken, and blue crab cakes, and drinks like the Ciroc Peach/ St. Germain/ agave nectar/ fresh lemon "Morning After."
Bread + Butter serves a lot more than, well, bread and butter. Enjoy Cuban fare with a twist and a full bar with some interesting drinks - liquid nitrogen shakes, anyone? - prepared by Mr. Pan con Mantequilla himself, Alberto Cabrera.
With outposts in Cali and London, Cecconi's is known for simple, authentic, Venetian food from Chef Sergio Sigala (see? Authentic!) that's served in a sophisticated dining room and beautiful garden area.
Burlesque performances? Check. Big-name DJs? Yeah. LED screens, a stage with a (cough, cough) pole, plus straight-off-the-carving board eats like pulled pork sliders 24 HOURSA DAY?! Miami's hottest dayclub, E11EVEN, is delivering all of the above, plus bottle service, and scantily clad dancers who are wayyy more likely to hang out if you buy said bottle service and post up in one the leather booths lining the dance floor/balcony.
The Phuc Yea! crew's homey spot on Biscayne is serving comfort food that you can wash down with 15 wines, beers on tap, and cocktails... just not all at once. Their light, fluffy biscuits have been ranked as some of the best in the country and are just a little sweet with a honey apple cider glaze. This modern American tavern serves up lunch, dinner and boozy brunch, and their Bloody Mary, made with Southwestern-style chipotle, cilantro, horseradish and agave wine, is not one to miss.
This South Beach boutique hotel offers state of the art amenities (sustainable bamboo floors, 40" flat screens) plus food and drink options that boast an array of creative craft 'tails.
Because they'd just look like slackers if they only opened four restaurants in two years, the Pubbelly boys have birthed a fifth: Pubbelly Steak, a barn-style meatery in the old Georgia's Union digs (and right down the street from the rest of their empire) serving an extensive lineup of crazy beef cuts with even crazier toppings.
At Perfecto, you can relax on big, comfy couches, drinking their massive selection of Spanish wines and stuffing your face with avocado and crab cannelloni, and tuna tartare topped with two types of caviar, plus plenty of other tapas options.
The second Samba location to hit Miami, SS's slinging Japanese-Brazilian-Peruvian fusion so you can feel all sorts of multi-cultural whilst sipping insane cocktails from a British master mixologist.
