    OMG where do I start! LOVE this chill and casual but nothing is random. cocktails start at 6pm food at 7pm. Ceviche is best I've had. Great staff. My fave Miami spot

    Ambience is amazing! Not your typical Miami bar. Place has great character with a retro vintage vibe and beautiful courtyard with pool . Love this place, a must visit.Drinks are superb w/unique mixes

    One of the best pop-up bars around town that will not be forgotten! Home to one of the best bartenders, Gabriel Orta! Plus brewed delicious home-made ginger beer! Will be truly missed!

    I've been coming here for years and love it every time. Jimmy is one of the staff members and is the BEST! He always makes sure that my group of friends are enjoying themselves to the fullest.

    What a place. First things first, grab a (likely fantastic) cocktail in the room to your left as you enter. Next, find a place outside to sit back and enjoy life with the rest of the vibrant crowd! 🌴

    Once a pop-up, now a nightlife legend in South Beach. Arguably some of the best libations in all of Miami, this place is a Bourbon fueled Speakeasy where all drinks are a solid choice.

    Best cocktails in Miami. Hands down. An an atmosphere to match. Huge selection of spirits, bitters and syrups. Menu changes every week or choose a spirit and allow the bartenders to freestyle

    Great cocktails and very nice atmosphere. It can be so crowded that first you have to wait in a line for 15 minutes just to get in and then to basically fight with other people to have a seat.

    A bar for people who don't like 'bars'. Tell waitress what you like and she'll do the rest. Great setting and cocktails. Pork tacos were excellent

    Surprisingly great bar in back of a hostel - seasonal crafted cocktails, string lights, swimming pool, plenty of tables and chairs for intimate conversation or a round of Jenga with friends.

    This is a kind of bar I always imagined Cuban bars to be like. Everything smells like mint, rosemary, incense and cigars. The daily punch bowl is a great choice to start.

    Nice hideout terrace/hotel pool bar well located and still FAR from the show-off pretentious crowd you usually see in South Beach nightlife spots... More locals, less tourists. Great place

    Cocktails are great - check. What one needs to take into account is that The Broken Shaker is NOT a "posh" bar or club. Interior is average, very little space, and the bar itself is a part of hostel

    Ambience is amazing! Not your typical Miami bar. Place has great character and beautiful courtyard with pool . Love this place, a must visit will only be open for 6 months. Drinks are superb.

    Classic Prohibition-era cocktails are aplenty at the vintage-chic canteen in the Freehand Miami hostel (a retro revival of the historic Miami Beach Indian Creek Hotel).

    Reserve a table if you are planning to get late (after10:30pm). Reservations are available for parties of 8 minimum. This place and Wood are the nicest places in Miami

    Love this place very chill vibe. Cocktails are put together by some top mixologists in the world. Feels like your sitting in a friends backyard , very nice for a date.

    Nothing broken about this James Beard-nominated bar. Talia Baiocchi says, “It's one of those craft cocktail bars that is the modern imagination of what Miami must've been like in the deco days.” Read more

    Tucked away in the Freehand Miami Hostel you'll find this gem headed up by the Bar Lab peeps. Homemade jerky and other bites accompany their creative cocktails nicely.

    Very nice place to come to for a small gathering or reunion with friends. The drinks do not disappoint and the vibe is very chill. It's definitely for a younger crowd.

    Great cocktails with a slightly bohemian vibe. Tell the bartender a drink you like and let him improvise around that.

    There is no better place in Miami to order by Dealer's Choice. Give them a hint of what you like and let them surprise you. I guarantee that you won't be disappointed.

    Didn't even realize this is one of the top bars in the country. Stayed at the Freehand last summer and this place was literally right outside my window. Had some good times with good people here.

    Great place with great food and drinks like no place on earth. Horrible customer service from Owner/Bartender Gabriel Orta. Every other server/bartender was extremely nice and helpful.

    Try the Agave Fairy cocktail - tequila mixed with homemade pineapple vinegar, fresh lime juice, and a fermented star-fruit mash cut with honey.

    Good for pre-drinks, and an intimate/cozy night with friends. Perfect vibes and amazing music. You'll feel like you're at a really large house party.

    Broken Shaker often farms up its caipirinha—think pineapple, lime, and kale. Nutritious? Nah. But you do get a healthy buzz. Read more
