The archetypal Miami Beach bar, the Clevelander offers a high concentration of tiki stylings, pink neon and booze—it claims to sell more Bud than any other bar in the nation—all served under open skies and illuminated palms. Like many of the models who participate in the body painting and other cheesy contests here, it has recently undergone some costly cosmetic enhancements. But all the best bits remain, including the nightly bands on the back stage that crank up the volume to the max. This is the stuff that spring breaks are made of: expect at least one drunken goon to fall into the shallow pool that fronts the stage (and a few free-spirited ladies to willingly follow suit).
