From legendary establishments that have been around for decades to some hole-in-the-wall dives, these are 10 of the best ones around town. If you haven't been, they're worth stopping by for some cheap drinks and a no fuss, good ol' time.Read More
Miami Dive Bars For All Your Valentine's Day Needs
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?
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.
Kill Your Idol
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.
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.
Mac's Club Deuce
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.
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.
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.
