There’s something especially magical about enjoying drinks on a plush tropical rooftop — especially one with South Beach views. It’s easy to lose track of time between sips of delicious cocktails, such as the Rubio—mezcal, hibiscus rosemary, and lime—at this sophisticated spot perched atop The Moxy hotel. Pair your cocktail with a coastal Mexican fare, featuring a variety of ceviches, guacamole, and tacos and you’ve got a solid evening—or day-drinking—haven.

Tucked into a residential neighborhood, you’ll find this pink and teal tropical paradise. This spot is a nod to old Miami: it is, afterall, where the first licensed hotel in the city once stood. Interiors feature vintage accents and decor, including an old-school bus that doubles as a cozy seating area. The cocktails, such as the Canoe Club, made with mezcal, ginger serrano syrup, clarified lime, blackberry liqueur, and bitters are tropical and flavorful. If your group is large—and thirsty—opt for the massive Flamingo Rum Punch, fit for 20, perfumed with hibiscus and rose tea syrup.

For those searching for a glamorous lair, head to Brickell’s LPM.

Brewery
Wynwood

213 reviews

While this spot, which opened in 2021, might be one of the newer breweries in Miami, it’s actually known for being the oldest in Cuba. Founded there in 1888, it was all the rage until it was shut down by Fidel Castro’s government, circa 1960. After years of research, a manager’s relative brought the brewery back to life in one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods. Here, you can opt for one of the many renowned brews along with a full list of cocktails, Caribbean-inspired bites, live music, and a gorgeous garden. The large stage outside often hosts local bands and singers, making this a spot where you meet for drinks, stay for dinner, then linger through the night.
