Consider this: a frozen, cool daiquiri with a pink umbrella, sunglasses, the scent of suntan lotion in the air, and everyone around you is having a good time. This isn’t a dream; it’s reality. All you have to do is visit Miami and see for yourself.
Drinking specialty cocktails and soaking up the rays on Miami Beach, we believe, go hand in hand. It’s always reassuring to know that if you get tired and need to eat and drink, Miami has some of the best beach bars in the country, places that stimulate the senses with delicious food and cocktails, music and atmosphere. After a long day, both tourists and locals may benefit from a few hours at a beach bar.
The Broken Shaker
The Broken Shaker, located inside the Freehand Hotel on Miami Beach, is famous for their handcrafted cocktails, which are composed of elixirs, syrups, and infusions made from ingredients hand-picked from their in-house garden. The Broken Shaker is well-known as one of Miami’s best bars, and it has received recognition for its creativity, design, and opulent ambiance. The tropical courtyard, with strings of globe lights draped over citrus trees and a garden full of mint, rosemary, and lavender, is the focal point of the space.
Nikki Beach Miami
Nikki Beach Miami is a sprawling oceanfront complex with a signature beach club, an award-winning restaurant and cabana bar, a second-floor nightclub, and a lifestyle boutique. It is located in Southpointe on Miami Beach and is unquestionably a landmark for tourists, celebrities, and native Miami Beach residents. Nikki Beach Miami has established itself as a quintessential Miami Beach bar since its inception in 19998. If you want to party all day and all night, this beachside bar stays open after hours, and the nightclub offers a unique taste of the Miami Beach lifestyle.
Looking for a place to go for happy hour drinks on South Beach? Look no further than Monty’s Sunset Bar for reasonably priced drinks and a festive atmosphere. Monty’s Sunset, located poolside and waterfront on the docks of the picturesque Miami Beach Marina, is one of South Beach’s best casual dining establishments. Monty’s unique appeal is enhanced by the stiff drinks, excellent service, and fresh-caught local seafood, raw bar, and live music.
The Rum Line
This outdoor terrace bar and lounge, located in the heart of South Beach, is incredibly inviting, and why wouldn’t it be? This bar is an islander’s dream, with over 100 different types of rum available. After being closed for renovations this summer, The Rum Line is ready to reopen, and you can bet the clientele has been waiting for the new opening date with bated breath. The bar’s name is a nod to the days of Prohibition, when ships smuggled contraband Caribbean rum to the Florida coast. It’s encouraging to see that, nearly a century after Prohibition, Miami residents are still enjoying the time-honored tradition of drinking mojitos on the beach!
This waterfront outpost of South Florida’s favorite sports bar offers two-for-one specials all day, every day, as well as a sprawling pool deck, more flat screens than you can possibly watch, and, you guessed it, a live DJ. Even the most ardent sports fans in Miami need to hear some live music, and they feel more at ease knowing that there is a club upstairs where they can escape after an evening of burgers, drinks, sports, and waterfront views.
MO Bar & Lounge
This bar is technically above the water, not in it. But, rather than getting bogged down in the details, keep in mind that MO Bar was named one of the 11 best bars to open in 2014 and shows no signs of relinquishing such a prestigious ranking. This bar, located on the second floor of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, is the only one where you can get up close and personal with the Brickell skyline while sipping craft cocktails in a five-star hotel.
