Brickell is home to some of the best bars in the city, offering a range of unique experiences for anyone looking for a good night out. From speakeasy-inspired pop-up bars to local favorites that double as nightclubs, there is something for everyone. In our roundup, we listed five of our favorite bars in Brickell, each with its own unique atmosphere, cocktail menu, and entertainment options.
All about great cocktails and live jams, Baby Jane is a tucked-away venue with a sexy spirit and unmistakable pizzazz. The post-disco playhouse wields only a small drink menu with just a few master-level cocktails to indulge in-house or take away (how dope is that?). We like their Chopsticks and Stones — a mix of Hendrix gin and sake, dill, cucumber, and charcoal ice. Surprisingly, they carry an even bigger food menu touched by the influence of East Asian cuisine. Stop by on a Friday night with the gang, grab some fine drinks and grub, jump on the old-school arcade machine, and dance the night away!
Baby Jane is located at 500 Brickell Ave #105e, Miami, FL 33131. For more information, visit their official website.
It’s like the kind of place you’ll want to film a movie the moment you walk in—centralized pool table, large rugs with floral patterns, a throwback television for two in the southwest corner… Better Days has atmosphere locked in. It’s Brickell’s first pop-up bar, with a devotion to those old-timey, speakeasy sensibilities, and as with all old-timey lads, hospitality takes priority. We recommend you stop by during happy hour to try, say, the Cumin All Over with mango, cumin, firewater, and Tromba Reposada tequila at nearly half the price! And one last thing—free popcorn.
Better Days is located at 75 SE 6th St, Miami, FL 33131. For more information, visit their official website.
Every Day, 3 p.m. to 5 a.m. If you came for the bar, beware of the turnup!… and vice versa. Blackbird Ordinary is a local bar that doubles as a dance and nightclub. They have all the drinks you’d ever dream of, from cocktails to rum on the rocks, and the party goes on and on. It’s really a perfect enclave to rest between the two worlds, as the abutting lounge area lets you enjoy the drinks and music, without having to shake a tail feather. There are even board games and jenga to play with friends while you soak up all the vibes. Grab their signature Blackbird Cocktail for the low low and leave the rest to history.
Blackbird Ordinary is located at 729 SW 1st Ave, Miami, FL 33130. For more information, visit their Instagram.
If you’re looking for a cocktail bar with a sensitive antenna for the human urge toward novelty, look no further than Dom’s. We celebrate their creativity and innovative approach to drinks – like with their spicy The Pop w/ Altos Blanco, orange juice, blueberries, and Angostura bitters — truly a cocktail experience here. The drinks are conscientiously prepared and the flavors are scalable. There is wine and beer and other drinks too, so you never run out of options. The vibe is always lively, and the karaoke microphone makes for even more ecstaticism, unifying strangers and friends alike. The next time you’re in Brickell, make a stop at Dom’s.
Dom’s is located at 1010 Brickell Ave #200A, Miami, FL 33131. For more information, visit their official website.
Tobacco Road by Kush
This vintage poster boy has been around the block and is still a beloved favorite by the block too. The aura here is like aged umber bourbon, which is ironic since the Kush gang at Tobacco Road has one of the best scotch and bourbon selections we’ve seen. No wonder they’re proud of it. Their unforgettable cocktails are also still on deck (IYKYK). As for food, you’ve got quite a few options of appetizers, burgers, salads, and of course, wings. Once Miami’s oldest bar & cabaret before their brief closure, the rebirth of Tobacco is just as good as ever — and only getting better!
Tobacco Road by Kush is located at 650 S Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33130. For more information, visit their official website.
