    Greeaaaat place! Love the interior, great live music. Prefer going earlier in the day when it is less crowded. Weekend nights you will find a line out the door. $8 valet parking so worth it!

    Calle ocho old fashioned is strong! the tobacco flavor and aroma great. The mojito is one of the best you'll have in Miami. The bananita daiquiri is like a boozy smoothie, it was sweet, i loved it 😍

    This place is great! YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG WITH THE JAM SESSION! I think a good pairing would be the Passion Fountain and the Cuban Spring Roll.

    With history dating back to 1935, Ball & Chain is the anchor of Little Havana’s Calle Ocho. Check the calendar, hit it when there’s live music on the Pineapple Stage. Read more

    Go when it's busy to get a good Cuban atmosphere and make sure there is not a private event so you can see the back area

    Been here 10+ times
    Count Basie played here, as well as Billie Holliday, Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington and others. The 24 hour liquor license made for some wild and crazy parties here.

    It's funny that this place is called Ball & Chain because it's off the chain. Fire!!!! Please get the Elena Ruz, sooooooo delicious.
