Between the club scene in South Beach and Miami's growing list of best restaurants, there's no shortage of places to have a drink in this city. But just which bar is deserving of being called the best? We enlisted Miami's top bartenders and industry experts to weigh in and help us decide the city's best drinking spots, from the best wine bar to the best-looking bar. Based on their nominations, these are the finalists of Time Out Miami's 2017 Bar Awards. The winners will be announced at a celebration in downtown Miami on June 19. Congratulations to this year's finalists!
