One of Brickell’s oldest and most popular bars, Blackbird is a hell of a late-night spot, offering drinks and dancing till 5am every night. A bar with a soul is a rarity in this city, but Blackbird is bursting with character. Inside the dim bar, you’ll find tasty cocktails. Outside, under the shadow of the Metromover, expect a DJ or an occasional live band.
In this bougie bayfront financial center, bankers and business types, international students, tourists and recent transplants all come together for a common purpose: to drink. Whether the vibe is after-work cocktails or a late-night turn-up, Brickell’s towering rooftop bars (Miami's best, truly), sleek lounges and friendly neighborhood taverns always serve up a solid scene. Mixed in with some of the best shopping in Miami, you’ll also find cozy karaoke joints and buzzy club restaurants. As an added bonus—and unlike other neighborhoods in Miami—many of the best bars in Brickell are within walking distance, making Miami’s glittering urban core feel truly metropolitan.
