1. American Social 690 Southwest 1st Court, Miami, FL 33130 (Miami Beach)

Embracing the hard-working spirit of America, American Social is the ultimate destination for a post-work drink. Bedecked with red, white, and blue furniture and peppered with issues of LIFE magazine on the walls, American Social is a relaxing spot for dinner and drinks. Start off your meal with shared plates like Peekytoe Crab Toast, with red peppers, shallots, mustard, aioli, cucumber, jalapeno and tarragon on a pumpernickel crouton or rock shrimp tacos. The extensive menu encourages you to nibble on burgers and sandwiches, salads, and pub dishes like cheesy fries with pickled jalapeno, ranch, scallions, and proteins like chicken, rock shrimp and short rib. And last -- but certainly not least -- its spectacular waterfront views are enough to (maybe just maybe) restore your faith in the country.

2. Duffy's Sports Grill 3969 NE 163rd St, Miami Beach , FL 33160 (North Miami Beach)

Because drafting Priest Holmes first overall every year in the same exact place gets soooo boring, Duffy's will let you and your fantasy-hound buddies take over their private room, equipped with seven flatscreens and wifi, while enjoying two-for-one drink specials on everything in the house from 4p on.

3. Garcia's Seafood Grille & Fish 398 NW North River Dr, Miami, FL 33128

It’s amazing how for 50 years this place managed to serve possibly the best, freshest seafood in Miami, cold beers, and a stunning view of the Miami River and never refused service to anyone because they weren’t wearing designer sunglasses. Perhaps the next-door neighbors could take a lesson.

4. The Standard Miami Beach 40 Island Ave , Miami Beach, FL 33139 (Miami Beach)

Tucked just off the Venetian Causeway, and literally dead ending into one of the best panoramic views of Miami, The Standard's relaxing effect is so strong, you'll almost forget about the fact that their activities include Drunk Bingo. Almost.

5. LOL Resto Bar 901 Brickell Bay Dr, Miami, FL 33131 (Brickell)

This Argentine/Italian/American bistro inside Four Ambassadors will get you as close as possible to Biscayne Bay. Stop by for craft beers and wine outside, and munch on eats like flatbreads and sandwiches.

6. MO Bar + Lounge 500 Brickell Key Dr, Miami, FL 33131 (Brickell)

Located inside the luxurious Mandarin Oriental, this bar-cum-lounge boasts gorgeous, panoramic beach views from an expansive floor to ceiling glass facade enveloping the entirety of the bar. The cocktails are equally impressive. Try killer spirits like their Ramos Gin Fizz or a Lemongrass Gin and Tonic. And take the opportunity to enjoy one of these carefully-crafted beverages before, or after, soaking up the sun.

7. Monty's Sunset 300 Alton Rd, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (South Beach)

Something about eating seafood on a dock makes it seem just a little more fresh. And something about eating fresh seafood on a dock next to a pool makes it all the more picturesque. Overlooking the Miami Beach Marina, Monty’s Sunset serves food and drink under poolside tiki huts. Prime sunset views and an institutional happy hour, accompanied by live music and DJs, draws a drinking crowd, while plentiful raw bar options (Florida Keys crab claws, Gulf oysters, and Bahamian conch ceviche) highlight the best of local fish.

8. Monty's Raw Bar 2550 South Bayshore Dr, Miami, FL 33133

Monty's Raw Bar is a bayside seafood house serving tropical cocktails to patrons under tiki huts, because what else would you drink with a heaping raw-bar platter while gazing out over Biscayne Bay? The bi-level space is located in a shopping strip on Dinner Key, where prime sunset views and the ocean's bounty are accompanied by live music and DJs, and dancing on the weekends.

9. The Rathskeller 1330 Miller Dr, Coral Gables, FL 33146 (Coral Gables)

UM's legendary lakeside bar is two stories worth of pool tables, TVs, an indoor and outdoor bar, and a patio where you'll be doing a whole lot of not-studying as you take down any of their classic eats and 20 beers on tap. On game nights, you can even lounge back and watch the Giants on a 10ft screen.

11. Shuckers Bar and Grill 1819 79th St Causeway, Miami, FL

Because it sits right on the JFK causeway, Shuckers is the only bar on this list where you feel like you’re sitting in the middle of Biscayne Bay. Or, if you were unfortunate to be there one night a couple years ago, you actually WERE sitting in the middle of Biscayne Bay. Too soon?

12. Smith & Wollensky Waterfront Patio 1 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (South Beach)

The Waterfront Patio features a solid bar menu (oysters Rockefeller, buffalo chicken flatbread) and a Deco-ish design: the bar's made of textured blue-backlit glass blocks.

13. Whiskey Joe's 3301 Rickenbacker Cswy, Miami, FL 33149 (Key Biscayne)

Whiskey Joe's is an island-themed party bar that invaded the old Rickenbacker Fish Company space on Key Biscayne. They sling cheap eats like jerk wings, crab cakes, and shrimp/sausage quesadillas, plus they'll grill up any fish you caught yourself while you get rip-roaring on their Jack Daniel's Honey-spiked lemonade.
