This over-the-top club is located in a multi-story warehouse, and comes complete with live DJs and a rooftop terrace. Thanks to its 24-hours license, lots of lasers, and pretty lights, the after-after-after-hours club is Miami's greatest freak show, and likely the only 10+-year-old club that can lay claim to such subsisting fame.
It may be considered Miami's oldest bar, but TR's laid back yet lively atmosphere's still got it; they're serving up good bar food and drinks & host live music seven nights a week.
Luxurious white chairs and umbrellas define the palm-lined beach at Nikki's Beach club, a "party playground for jet setters, celebrities, VIPs, guests, and visitors alike". Soo fancy, right? Well, you, average non-celebrity-or-VIP, can hit up this spot to nosh, booze, or lounge at the nightclub.
Miami is notorious for housing debaucherous Spring Breaks, which isn’t fair because a lot of places in Miami don’t reflect that parties-gone-wild mentality you’re picturing right now… but a lot of them do. The Clevelander is one of those places that does: it’s reminiscent of everything you think of when anyone utters the words “Spring Break,” mostly because it’s one of the founding fathers of those ubiquitous, raging parties on South Beach. The art-deco hotel’s three poolside bars serve tropical frozen drinks and plenty of American bar favorites (burgers, pizzas, salads, snacks), and the weekday happy hours and weekend brunches are the perfect excuse to see-and-be-seen on one of the busiest patios on South Beach.
This laid back resto's right on the water and host to live music, so you can relax while stuffing your face with seafood and swilling some 'tails.
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.
In the backyard of the Freehand on South Beach, tucked off to the side, there’s a small alcove overflowing with cocktail-consuming hopefuls, waiting patiently to procure a poolside sipper. The Broken Shaker’s locale on the Freehand’s property is beneficial, not just because the grounds serve as a lounge for the tiny bar front’s patrons, but also because the bar menu taps into the property’s garden for ingredients, resulting in creative, substantive cocktails that also happen to be best when drunk by the pool, in the pool, on a hammock, or anywhere else in the hostel’s art deco backyard. Broken Shaker has since spread its craft cocktail success cross country, with locations in both Chicago and Los Angeles.
