March 2020: In honor of our most recent print magazine (which you can read online here), we’ve overhauled this guy to include the absolute best bars in the city right now. We’ve kept our favorite standbys (think Sweet Liberty and Gramps), added a few newbies, like tiki temples Swizzle and Esotico, and threw in some high-low options, like Mac’s and Le Sirenuse. There’s something on this list for every type of drinker. Cheers, folks!
Remember when the only cocktail anyone thought to order in Miami was a mojito? Those dark days are long gone. Over the past decade, star bartenders have emerged to introduce true mixology to the Magic City. One drink at a time, we went from enjoying well-and-soda mixes at our neighborhood spot to having the option of 10-ingredient tipples at a Miami speakeasy. While we still have our beloved dive bars and offbeat trailblazers, we’ve added new up-market rooftops and low-key spaces that are continuing the tradition of spirit-filled innovation. Thirsty yet? Here’s where to find the best bars in Miami, from Wynwood to South Beach to Little Havana.
