1. Churchill's Pub

Copy Link
5501 NE 2nd Ave
Miami, FL 33137
(305) 757-1807
Visit Website

Nestled in Little Haiti, Churchill's is the 30 year-old "pub and grub punk club". There might've been a shooting nearby over a year ago, but that just makes it all the more dive-y, right?

2. Free Spirits

Copy Link
100 21st St
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 532-5399

A random "sports cafe" at the Days Inn on 20 Street, Free Spirits is actually a decent-sized dive with pool tables, darts, a jukebox, and friendly staff that is nothing close to the typical SoBe scene.

3. Kill Your Idol

Copy Link
222 Espanola way
Miami Beach, FL 33139

The smaller counterpart to Lost Weekend on Española Way has a more rock n' roll vibe and plenty of odd decorations to look at. Their Wednesday ladies night where ladies drink free is usually packed.

4. Lost Weekend

Copy Link
218 Espanola Way
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 672-1707

Not a bad place to get lost, the larger bar connected to Kill Your Idol is great for playing pool, putting tunes on the jukebox, ordering cheap drinks, and late night munchies. Their pizza is actually, really good.

5. Mac's Club Deuce

Copy Link
222 14th St
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 531-6200

The Deuce, as it's known to locals, has been around nearly 50 years and remains a SoBe staple. It's even one of Anthony Bourdain's favorites.

6. Purdy Lounge

Copy Link
1811 Purdy Ave.
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 531-4622

Dubbed a lounge for its large space (there's a main room and a back room) and comfy couches, Purdy is called "dirty Purdy" by locals for a reason. Go for reggae on Mondays, a nightcap on any night of the week, or for Chocolate Sundays, one of the best, sweaty, hip-hop parties in Miami.

7. Ted's Hideaway

Copy Link
124 2nd St
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 532-9869
Visit Website

Hidden in SoBe's South of Fifth neighborhood just off Ocean Drive, Ted's is a no-frills bar next to The Big Pink with strong drinks and a pool table.
