Keep the best happy hour guide in Miami handy when looking for the best drink and food deals.

We love a good happy hour especially nowadays because Miami esta carisimo. Also, we love the idea of being in bed early and skipping the next day’s hangover.

The Best Happy Hour Guide in Miami is for those who want to save for that dream casa, yet live a little and stay social. To build this awesome list, we’ve focused on happy hours that we feel are worth your time, offer great cocktails, and have good enough food to keep the buzz under control.

Neighborhood: Wynwood
Address: 252 NW 25th St
Cuisine: Japanese
Happy Hour: Everyday 5 PM – 6:30 PM
Deal: $10 drinks; $3.5 – $12 snacks

From Austin, Texas, Uchi is one of our favorite reasons to stop by Wynwood. This modern and sophisticated Japanese restaurant offers delicate flavors, modern techniques, and innovative dishes. You will be blown away by the simplest of dishes.

Uchi always gets busy and is quite pricey. So we love it for happy hour. Go here last minute with a date or a friend, from 5 PM – 6:30 PM for discounted nigiri, sushi rolls, snacks, and $9 cocktails.

DOWNTOWN

OVER UNDER


Neighborhood: Downtown

CuisineAmerican
Happy Hour: Monday to Saturday 5 PM – 7 PM
Deal: buy 1 get 1 free all wells, wines, beer, and frozen cocktails; $2 snacks

When you want to be surrounded by neon lights, frozen drinks in plastic kiddie cups, and one of the best burgers in Miami, stop by Over Under. 

The cheeseburger from Over Under reminds us of an elevated version of In-N-Out’s burger. It’s a smash burger with Florida grass-fed beef, American cheese, shredded lettuce, onions, pickles, and a house-made 1000-island dressing. 

At Over Under, they serve food until midnight and offer happy hour from Monday through Saturday from 5 PM – 7 PM. Expect $3 off bar snacks, $2 oysters, and BOGO deals on all wells, wines, beers, and frozen cocktails (must be the same frozen drink for the deal to apply).

JAGUAR SUN


Neighborhood: Downtown
Address: 230 NE 4th St
Cuisine: Modern American, pasta
Happy Hour: Everyday 5 PM – 7 PM
Deal: $10 drinks; 1/2 off oysters

It’s undeniable that Jaguar Sun in Downtown is our favorite cocktail bar in Miami and luckily for you, they have happy hour. This is the bar that changed the way we approached cocktails. What do we mean by this? You don’t have to get into these types of conversations with the bartender that start with, “I don’t like sweet drinks”. Why? Because they know what it takes to create something delicious and perfectly balanced. Trust them. They are professionals.

Happy Hour is available from Tuesday – Saturday, 5 PM – 7 PM with $1 oysters and of course $10 classic cocktails. The classics include Tom CollinsAperol SpritzMargarita, and our go-to: the Tiny Tini. Extra dirty.

LOST BOY DRY GOODS


Neighborhood: Downtown
Address157 E Flagler St
CuisineAmerican
Happy Hour: Monday to Friday 4 PM – 7 PM
Deal: $4 – $7 drinks

Lost Boy went from a transformed denim boutique to the home of one of our favorite neighborhood bars in Downtown. The theme of the bar is no theme, however, the bar gives off a Southwestern vibe reminiscing of an English pub. Interesting combo, right? If you’re into board games such as Clue and Monopoly (our personal favorite) they’ve got them. If you get hungry they have a limited menu of bar snacks.

Happy Hour is available from Monday to Friday from 4 PM – 7 PM, enjoy half-off on all cocktails, beer, wine, and spirits. They also offer $4 beer pints, $4.50 – $7 wine by the glass, and $ 7 cocktails.

In the heart of Downtown, next to the new multi-level food hall Julia and Henry’s, The Roystone is a gem hidden in plain sight (so hidden it’s on a fourth floor). Gold accents, velvet, and a dimly illuminated ceiling make this spot elusive, exclusive, and super sexy.

They take cocktails to the next level, offering special collaborations with mixologists from the World’s Top 100 Bars and their own Miami spins on classic drinks like the “Cafecita Martini.” It’s giving NYC speakeasy in the heart of Miami, which we’re into.

Happy Hour is Wednesday-Friday from 5 PM – 7 PM. Sit back while sipping on a Cosmo and munching on a cheese board for $10 each, while listening to some jazz or disco. Thank us later.

COTE


NeighborhoodDesign District
Address: 3900 NE 2nd Ave
CuisineKorean, steakhouse
Happy Hour: Everyday 5 PM – 7 PM
Deal: $8 drinks; $8.88 snacks

COTE, the Michelin-starred Korean Steakhouse, landed in Miami’s Design District in early 2021. While snagging a prime-time reservation is still pretty tough, their happy hour is a must-try, and much easier to get into.

Our tip? Make a dinner reservation at a nearby spot – some of our favorites are Mandolin or Michael’s Genuine – and impress any date with pre-dinner drinks at this snazzy spot (without breaking the bank).

Cote’s Daily Magic Hour menu is offered *daily* from 5 PM -7 PM, and has 8$ drinks (including one of our favorites, the Malibu Club) and 8.88$ bar snacks. Don’t miss out on the lobster fritters with truffle aioli or the rice cake gnocchis with gochujang glaze.

Address: 3930 NE 2nd Ave Suite #100
Cuisine: Mexican
Happy Hour: Monday to Friday 4 PM – 7 PM

It seems like a lot of NYC restaurants are making their way to Miami. Do you love this? Do you hate it? Either way, the Design District needed a place like this. Surrounded by luxury shops and lavish dining, Tacombi is the casual, chill, refreshing spot you look for after a long day. ¿Por qué complicarse? This is a New York addition we’re happy to keep.

Happy Hour is offered on weekdays between 4 PM – 7 PM and offers margaritas, palomas, and mezcal mules for $14 or by the pitcher. They also have beer buckets and Micheladas, which would be delicious with a Baja crispy fish taco or esquites.

Cuisine: Bar

Deal: $10 drinks; $6 beers; $0.95 – $1.95 oysters

Like everything in Miami Beach, Sweet Liberty is enjoyed by tourists… but unlike everything in Miami Beach, Sweet Liberty is loved by locals. Obvio in Miami it’s kind of hard to find that balance, but Sweet Liberty does it well. Great prices, phenomenal cocktails, and super yummy bites, this place is worth the trek near Collins Ave.

Happy Hour is available every day from 4 PM -8 PM, offering $10 cocktails, $6 beer, $8 wine, special shots of the day, and $0.95-$1.95 oysters. If you’re into something sweet, we love the Chocolate & Bananas made with Baileys, creme de cacao, and chocolate bitters. If not, go with the Golden Sunset, with a kick of lemon soda and white vermouth, or the Siesta, made with Campari and grapefruit. Whichever you pick, their happy hour and drinks have won a lot of awards, so you really can’t go wrong.

Inspired by Coconut Grove’s historic Caribbean heritage, Sipsip’s menu highlights a vast rum menu and tropical cocktails like Pina Coladas and Goombay Smashes. For the munchies, they do a very cool and fresh take on classic South Florida bites like fried fish and conch fritters.

MIDTOWN

THE SYLVESTER


Neighborhood: Midtown
Address: 3456 N Miami Ave
CuisineAmerican
Happy Hour: Tuesday to Sunday from open to 8 PM
Deal: $8 cocktails and house spirits

The Sylvester is a nod to the more creative side of our city’s bar scene. The decor is retro Miami themed with lots of dark, cozy corners perfect for a happy hour with friends or a first date. The owners, alums of Beaker & Gray and Blackbird Ordinary, know a thing or two about craft cocktails.

They’ve cleverly named their happy hour ‘Rush Hour’ because if you know Miami, then you know the traffic. And personally, we rather be at The Sylvester than in some bumper-to-bumper situation. Stop by  Tuesday, Wednesday & Sunday from 6 PM to 7 PM for $7 cocktails, from 7 PM to 8 PM for $8 cocktails; or Thursday – Saturday from 5 PM to 6 PM for $6 cocktails, 6 PM to 7 PM for $7 cocktails, and from 7 PM to 8 PM for $8 cocktails.
