The Best Happy Hour Guide in Miami

Covering the best deals for good food & drinks


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 hangover.

The Best Happy Hour Guide in Miami is for those that still want to save for that dream apartment, yet live a little and stay social. In order 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: $7 – $9 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.

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).

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.

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.
