Best Casual Bars in Miami Beach

South Beach Drinks and Fun Without the Attitude


In South Beach, it is hard to avoid the bright lights and hype of the many expensive Nightclubs and Cocktail Lounges. But there are a number of excellent casual bars here, which are frequented by local regulars, as well as visitors wishing to avoid the usual velvet ropes and attitude. Classier than Dive Bars, these are great spots to have some drinks and mingle without paying a small fortune.
