Hater's Guide to Valentine's Day

Where to eat & drink if you're not celebrating V-Day

Don’t stay home tonight

You never know who’s at the other end of the bar

For some, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to get mushy, wear your heart on your sleeve and shower your loved one(s) with treats, extravagant tasting menus and more. For others, it’s not the most wonderful time of the year. But don’t let it get to you— just milk it! Get out there with your friends, have an A class dinner, strong drinks and wake up with a great little hangover.

Here’s where we recommend you go for some ambiance, music, great food and drinks.

Miami Beach
Cuisine: Cocktails
Looking to sip your calories tonight?  Try Minibar for some craft cocktails and finger food. Menu includes tequeños, spicy buffalo popcorn, grilled cheese and more. Mini bar is located in the South of Fifth area inside the Urbanica The Meridian Hotel.

Purdy Lounge
Neighborhood:
Miami Beach
Cuisine:
Drinks with a side of funk
If we were you we’d stop by Lucali for a slice of pizza and then head over to Purdy Lounge for some dancing. Can’t go wrong and you know it. They’ll be playing funk, hip hop and reggaeton, which sounds like the dream.

Jaguar Sun

Cocktail Bar, Italian
If you want to get out but take it easy at a bar with great food, this is your spot. Maybe you’ve just gone through a break-up and you just want to keep it subtle, have a couple of drinks and share a cacio e pepe with a friend.

If tequila is calling your name, head over to Los Altos. This Mexican inspired cocktail speakeasy is all regal and standouts from anything else you will experience in Little Havana.
