Top Miami Bars and Nightclubs

Miami's known around the world for our lively nightlife. From the crowded bars on South Beach that draw the "who's who" of the fashion world to award-winning microbreweries, you have plenty of choices if you're looking for a unique place to get a drink. Don't forget that it's important to have a designated driver.

    Tobacco Road

    ••• Crafty Girly
    An old-time favorite, Tobacco Road was established in 1912 and has a somewhat shady history of run-ins with local law enforcement authorities. That said, it's the absolute best place in town to find a huge greasy hamburger and you're liable to hear some of the best live blues music in the country while you're dining.

    ••• Chang'r
    The Clevelander is a South Beach landmark that often appears in print and on television as an iconic landmark representing the South Beach lifestyle. This sexy bar offers a wild party any night of the week. Be sure to stop by the "drink island" while you're there! It's perfectly acceptable to throw on a t-shirt and wander across the street from the beach and grab a quick drink.

    Mango's Tropical Cafe

    ••• Stig Nygaard
    Mango's Tropical Cafe (just down the street from The Clevelander) builds its reputation on a sexy, Latin beat. The music includes a selection of typical nightclub music interspersed with Latin specialties. Don't be surprised if you see the bartenders jump up on top of the bar to interrupt the evening with a sexy dance! Mango's is a must-visit for nightlife lovers.
