4 mins read

We all know those days when emails pile up, deadlines loom, and the only solution seems to be an extra shot of espresso (that somehow still isn’t enough). When your brain feels fried after a long workday, it’s time to swap the cubicle for a culinary escape. Miami’s diverse dining scene offers the perfect remedy to wash away workday woes:


5 Miami Spots to Go After a Rough Day at Work - Cubata, Ironside Pizza, Sha Wynwood, Sweet Liberty, The Sylvester - May 2024

Ditch the spreadsheets and head over to Little Havana for a lively pick-me-up. Settle into Cubata’s charming ambiance, where the rhythmic beat of live music sets the stage for a stress-melting experience.

The first order of business here: ordering a round of classic mojitos. Then, enjoy the restaurant’s signature orange-roasted chicken or opt for fresh, flavorful seafood like tuna tartare, octopus, and oysters. The menu here has something for everyone, so repeat visits are a given. Let the warmth of Cuban hospitality and the fun flavors transport you miles away from work worries.

Ironside Pizza

When the day’s been a real battle, sometimes the simplest comforts are the most effective. Ironside Pizza delivers the goods with their wide selection of exquisite pizzas and an array of inspired toppings. While the pizza is the main draw here, the restaurant also offers items like pastas, salads, and more. Get a glass of wine and stuff your face – you deserve it.


Trade your work inbox for the artistic energy of Wynwood. Sha offers a delightful taste of the Mediterranean, including burrata salad, branzino, and other favorites. If diet be damned, choose one of the eatery’s mouthwatering pizzas or pastas like the wild mushrooms and truffle ravioli. There’s a full bar to help you wash everything down, too. This vibrant place will remind you there’s more to life than deadlines.

Sweet Liberty

Put your project on pause and slip into the buzzing atmosphere of Sweet Liberty. Their expert mixologists have a cure for every kind of workday stress, shaking and stirring up cocktails that perfectly suit your mood.

Pair your expertly crafted drink with a selection of their inventive and satisfying bar snacks, such as cauliflower nachos, Maine lobster “hot pockets,” pickled deviled eggs, and fancy oysters. From the electrifying energy of South Beach to the delectable creations behind the bar, Sweet Liberty is a guaranteed recipe for relaxation. Cheers!

The Sylvester 

When you’re craving a full reset, The Sylvester delivers. This beloved Midtown Miami watering hole offers the perfect break from the corporate grind. Choose from a menu of creative cocktails with equally creative names like On Miami Time, Vaxxed & Waxxed, and Give Em the Bird. You won’t find food here, but some of the area’s best restaurants are just across the street – make a night out of it.
