This Brickell hotspot can have a line out the door on weekend nights and Friday happy hour. Brave that line and you’ll be rewarded with 360-views of the city (40 floors up!), pricey (but tasty) cocktails and a swank crowd. Snag a reservation for a guaranteed table, especially if you think you may want to have some food. Sugar is no average night out.
April 2021: The bar scene has changed considerably over the past year, and many of our favorite watering holes have sadly left us. But when the city takes, the city also gives in the form of buzzy rooftop bar options you’ll want to visit for their gorgeous views and boozy beverages. One thing is certain: Miami just looks better from up here.
Finding rooftop bars in Miami has not always been an easy task. We’re not a skyscraper city like New York and many of the rooftop spaces we have are reserved for hotel guests. Thankfully, that has changed. The Brickell and Downtown explosion has given us some tall drinking options and even relatively small neighborhoods like Wynwood and Buena Vista are throwing their hat into the rooftop ring. We ain’t complaining, especially because many of these bars aren’t content with just good views. They’re bringing great cocktails, food and ambiance to the party too, which has landed at least one in our ultimate list of the best bars in Miami. These places are a great way to see Miami from a different perspective. Time your visit with a Miami sunset and prepare to be wowed.
