2. Batch Gastropub 30 SW 12th St, Miami, FL 33130

You know a bar is serious about keeping the party going strong when they have cocktails on tap (because really, ain’t nobody got time to mix drinks when Friday is in full swing). Boasting massive plasma TVs, ample indoor and outdoor seating room, and a solid menu of high-end pub fare, it’s a Brickell destination for boozy brunch (chicken and waffles, anyone?) and sports games alike.

3. Better Days 75 SE 6th St Ste 103, Miami, FL 33131

A classy take on a good ‘ol fashioned dive bar, Better Days offers up specialty cocktails, good beer, a great happy hour and a relaxed vibe at a very reasonable price. This bar feels right at home in it’s kitschy thrift shop interior, and so will you when you play a round or two of pool between fistfuls of delicious, free popcorn. With shabby chic flamingos, palm trees, and unfinished wood accents, Better Days deftly embodies both the hip vibrance of the Miami night life and the comfy couch in your basement.

This Pan-Latin restaurant sits in the lobby of a hotel, but its swank dark wood embellishments and leather booths make it feel like it's its own Miami establishment.

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.

12. Mike's at Venetia 555 NE 15th St, Miami, FL 33132

We’d say Mike’s at Venetia is one of Miami's best kept secrets, but when Billy Corben Tweets about it at least once a week, well, its not hiding from anyone on the ninth floor of this condo tower right before the Venetian Causeway. The outdoor patio probably has the best bar view in the city, and the pizza may well be Miami’s most underrated.
