1. Sole on the Ocean 17315 Collins Avenue, Sunny Isles, FL 33160 (North Miami)

When you get a hotel room on the beach, you pretty much expect just that; a hotel room where you can actually see the beach. On that count, this boutique hotel checks out. To do you one better, the spot also hosts Alba, a 120-seat Italian seafood, oceanfront restaurant, gnudi bar, and 40 mojitos from a rum bar.

3. Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar 1313 E Las Olas Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301 (Fort Lauderdale)

With 425 varieties of tequila, a house sour mix, and plenty of authentic Mexican eats, Rocco's is pretty hard to beat. The restaurant's famous guacamole is prepared table-side, the corn tortillas are all hand made on a Comal (a standard Mexican tortilla griddle), and the margaritas taste every bit as fresh as they are. In addition to serving tacos, quesadillas and enchiladas, the kitchen serves up a number of creative meat and fish-centric entrees, while guests seat themselves on the paper-lamp-adorned, red-brick patio. The restaurant offers a limited selection of nachos and tacos as late as 3am, and the cocktail menu features 13 different renditions of the margarita (try the strawberry basil), along with a full menu of non-tequila craft cocktails, and, of course, pitchers of sangria.

4. Naked Taco 1111 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (Miami Beach)

With an appearance on Hell's Kitchen, Ralph Pagano opened this eatery as a love letter to Mexico. Nestled inside, you'll find melty, gooey Mexican street foods, two bars (one comes stocked with 125 tequilas, while the other is more coffee-oriented) and a patio perfect for enjoying the Florida-influenced dishes, like lobster burritos.

6. 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.

7. Brother Jimmy's BBQ 900 S Miami Avenue, Suite 135, Miami, FL 33130 (Brickell)

When the Brother Jimmy’s gods tell you to “Put some South in yo’ mouth,” you do not say no. The New York-based one-stop-shop for inexpensive beers and Southern fare splits its food menu equally between saucy barbecue specialities and fried delights. Hush puppies, fried pickles, hot wings anchor the starters, while fried spiced catfish and Dixie hoe cakes stand out among the non-BBQ entrées. Of course, it's a rarity to come here and not order barbecue, and luckily the platters of sliced brisket, Carolina pulled pork, and baby back ribs do not disappoint.
