If you are looking for a classy or romantic bar with a view, Juvia is your spot. With mod decor and an elegant yet simplistic French atmosphere, you can enjoy indoor or outdoor seating high above the breathtaking Miami skyline. Upon reaching the penthouse floor you will immediately note the amazing view and the live plant wall. The interior decor is white with hints of pink and is entirely lined with glass floor to ceiling walls. Enjoy an exotic caipirinha and perhaps a Peruvian or French appetizer, but more importantly, enjoy the view.
Because one simply cannot go to Miami without Latin music and tropical drinks, Mangos comes alive with dancers in elaborate costumes who put on world class performances throughout the night. Mangos is located right on Ocean Drive and offers, arguably, the best mojitos on the strip. If mojitos are not your taste, Mangos has an extensive wine list along with an array of handmade tropical drinks. You are truly in South Beach when sipping a mango margarita while a dancer shakes her plumes.
Located in the Freehand Hostel, the Broken Shaker has become well known for its quirks and eccentricities. The backyard setting includes a pool, a ping pong table, bocce ball, and a marvelous array of patio furnishings. Drinks here are taken seriously, and you can’t go wrong with the handcrafted cocktails. There is a garden in back and trees throughout, adding to the relaxed and unique atmosphere. The Broken Shaker always holds a crowd and is probably one of the best spots in South Beach. Order the Kentucky Derby, play some boardgames, and enjoy this little hidden paradise.
