Affectionately referred to as Bougie’s, Bougainvillea's Old Florida Tavern is the bar equivalent of Old Faithful. Because, as both locals and thirsty UM kids know, it’s always a safe bet for a good, boozy time. This unpretentious yet cozy dive bar sits just south of the sometimes pretentious neighborhood of Coral Gables. On the weekend, things can get a bit rowdy but never quite as hectic as South Beach. You can pop in any day of the week for reasonably priced beer and well drinks, and stay long enough to enjoy the entertainment, which ranges from karaoke to live music from local bands.
