It’s surprising the Deuce has even got a phone. The place is charmingly out of character for the area—a mere block from the ocean—and "eclectic" doesn’t begin to describe the mix of South Beach denizens who gather here nightly. From transsexual hookers and down-and-out locals to nightclub glitterati and slumming celebs, the Deuce attracts the motliest, coolest, scariest crowd of any bar in Miami. (Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain has often touted his love of this place.) We’ve been beaten here at pool by a go-go-ing blonde, shared cigarettes with a real-life cowboy and traded shots of JD with a writer of erotic fiction. For anyone who ever fancied a bit part in a Charles Bukowski story, this dive bar would be the right place to audition.

I went to this bar to have a drink.As I walked in I saw the Bartender yelling at a couple and though they must be drunk tourists that got out of hand.I live in Miami and usually avoid expensive bars that charge $6 dollars for a beer when I can get a 6 pack for that price.

I went in and ordered a beer for $6 and gave the bartender a 2 dollar tip for a total of 8 dollars for a single beer.  The bully bartender told me it was happy hour and it was 2 for the price of 1.  When I ordered my 2nd beer he said that will be $6.  I told him that it was my second beer and since it is happy hour it was supposed to be free.  At this point he yells at me “The beer is 6 dollars if you don’t pay for the beer I opened I will call the cops for leaving the bar without paying for the beer”.

I was surprised by his yelling at me and his bully altitude.  I believe that karma takes care of bad people. I paid and left.  I can’t believe that this bartender rips off customers and intimidates them by yelling at them and rips them off by threatening them.

I would avoid this bar and definitely not take a date unless you want to be humiliated in fount of them.
