Miamians never realize how beat down we’ve gotten by drink prices until we go to some far-flung city like Tampa, order a couple beers, and are shocked when the bartender gives us change for a twenty. Because while Miami is one of America’s greatest drinking cities, a bargain it is not. That is, unless you track down a standout Happy Hour, where wallet-wrecking price tags are temporarily slashed and you can once again pick up a round without putting yourself (farther) into debt. Read on for some of the top happy hours in Miami, and ease your sticker shock-weary mind for at least one glorious afternoon.

Eleventh Street Pizza
Eleventh Street Pizza

Downtown
When: Tuesday - Friday, 3 - 5 pm
Cheap beer and even cheaper slices aren’t just for the 12-pack-fueled late night college crowd. Eleventh Street pizza dishes out high quality eats at half price four days a week, which taste even better with all your faculties intact.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating.

Over Under
Over Under

Downtown
When: Daily, 3 - 7 pm
If you find yourself literally steaming as you walk down a hot downtown street around three in the afternoon, stop into this narrow boozer where $5 gets you a frozen drink guaranteed to bring your core temperature down. And if brain freezes aren’t on your afternoon agenda, you can grab a shot and a beer, well drink, or glass of wine for the same exact price.

Downtown
When: Monday - Friday, 4 - 7 pm
Lost Boy’s already alarmingly cheap prices take a serious nosedive during happy hour, when everything on the drink menu runs half off. Sticking around after the promo ends is still your best value play downtown, too, as single-liquor drinks rarely top $10 each.

Wynwood
When: Wednesday - Friday, 4 - 7 pm
Redeem yourself for missing Taco Tuesday at Cuba’s oldest brewery, where the rest of the work week brings $1 tacos from esteemed chef Cindy Hutson. They’re also offering $5 beers, $10 beer cocktails, and $3 Bacalao Fritters.

Mac's Club Deuce
Mac's Club Deuce

South Beach
When: Daily, 8 am - 7 pm
If you’re not happy grabbing two-for-one drinks before most people have even attempted breakfast, well, the Deuce just may not be for you. But if your idea of happiness involves sitting in a dark bar on a sunny day knocking back two-fer cocktails and peeling the labels off of beer bottles, the Deuce is pretty much your Disneyland. The only reservations required here are the ones you have about using the bathroom.

Coconut Grove
When: Monday - Friday, 6 - 7 pm
Michael Beltran is bringing college drink prices back to the Grove, pouring 99¢ gin and vodka martinis for an hour each day. Dangerous, you say? Remember—Chug’s is also a Cuban diner, which means plenty of rice, beans, and lechon to soak it up.

Key Biscayne
When: Daily, 4 - 6 pm
The Island Paradise’s best happy hour comes via this brand new wine and cocktail bar, a collaboration between the BarLab team and the pandemic-era’s wine delivery smash. They’re pouring rare, hard-to-find wines and creative drinks daily for half off every afternoon.

Coconut Grove
When: Monday - Friday, 5 - 7 pm
Though beloved Mr. Moe’s has gone the way of the Orange Bowl and winning Hurricanes football, Moose Juice lives on, just down the street at Kush. During happy hour, you can score some of that sweet, sweet boozy nostalgia—12 hours earlier than you used to—for just $5. And if you’re not in the mood for daylight bad decisions, opt for $5 shot- and beer combos, BOGO beer and wines by the glass, or three-for-$5 oysters.
How to book: Reserve via OpenTable.

Little Havana
When: Thursday - Saturday, 8 - 10 pm
Happy hour pricing is typically reserved for early evening, leaving you to pay full price once prime time rolls around. But that's not the case at this not-so-secret speakeasy atop Taquerias El Mexicano, where they’re firing up half off cocktails and Antojitos just as all the other happy hours are winding down. Walk upstairs to the “candy” shop, and wait for the magic to happen.
