Vibrant spots, late hangouts and bar hopping all take place in Brickell, an area which locals call home to the Yuppies. Begin your fun journey at NOBRI, where you will experience a different kind of ambiance surrounded by an international influence that make this part of the city unique. If you are in the mood for Vallenato or Latin pop, stop by BARU a Colombian owned bar and grill featuring some traditional Colombian plates and a late menu coupled with outdoor seating that makes it a great hang out spot in the middle of Mary Brickell Village, especially on the week-ends. Across from Baru is Dolores but you can call me Lolita known for its Spanish menu and their incredible upstairs bar and outside dinning. Formerly known as the firehouse which still preserves the original fire staircase pole in the middle of the building but sorry, pole dancing is not permitted. Down the street from Dolores is Red Bar, a casual neighborhood bar with an artsy touch, where you will see plenty of art on the walls blending behind an enormous red wall. Chill out during happy hour drink specials or grab a seat outside and enjoy one of the best happy hours around. For great live music and awesome spirits, there is no place like Blue Martini known for their Cosmopolitan and Apple Martinis yet offering endless choices. Get there early for ladies night happening Wednesdays and hospitality night on Mondays. Just up the road from Blue Martini you will find Tobacco Road, the oldest bar in Miami! They obtained their liquor license in 1923. Local musicians perform every night to the enjoyment tourists and the local crowd that attribute this place for the best burger in town. They serve up a mean t-bone steaks available until late night. Follow your instincts to Blackbird Ordinary, a real local hangout. Live music makes this place a true hidden gem to many Miami locals as well. For a night of dancing step into the Viceroy Hotel to Club 50 located on the same floor and with incredible views of the city. The skyline experience is an “A La Dubai” one of a kind with the spectacular light displays coming from many of the top structures in downtown. This place is where you can enjoy a musicologist at its best or just chill to the different sounds of a typical “Miamian” night.
