Where to Go for Happy Hour in Miami

These spots around the city are serving up amazing drinks for a budget.

When you want to go out for drinks, few cities have bars that compare to Miami, Florida. In terms of both quantity and quality, this city is unlike any other when you’re in the mood to cut loose and have some fun. 

There are so many bars, taverns, pubs, and nightclubs in Miami that it’s hard to pick which place you want to go sometimes. As a Florida local who spends a lot of time in cities all over the state, I thought I might be able to help with that a bit.

Taking the number one spot on my list of Miami happy hours to check out is a place called Mamey Miami. This restaurant serves Asian Fusion fare but also has a slamming happy hour that you can enjoy every single day from 3PM to 6PM.

The drink deals are great, you get a wide selection of $10 cocktails, $5 beers, $7 wines, and $7 spirits for 3 whole hours. The specials don’t end with drinks, though.

Next up is a charming Japanese restaurant called Uchi. This one is located right in the heart of the Wynwood neighborhood near the famous Wynwood Walls outdoor art exhibit.

The happy hour deals here include all sorts of nigiri, makimono, kori kaki, and even okashi. There is also a small section of the happy hour menu full of tastings which are absolutely incredible. 

Don’t forget the drinks, either. Uchi’s happy hour specials include a couple $4 beers, $6 sakes, $8 cocktails, and half off all sparkling wine as well as champagne. My favorite cocktail was the Uchi Gin & Tonic.

Happy hour at Jaguar sun is every day from 5PM to 7PM and it features a list of $10 classic cocktails that you’re going to love. My favorite is either the Manhattan or the daiquiri. 

They do have a happy hour food special here as well. Jaguar Sun offers $1 oysters with an unbelievably tasty yuzu kosho mignonette for the perfect flavor addition to the oysters.


Sweet Liberty Drinks & Supply Company

Sweet Liberty Drinks & Supply Company is one of my favorite happy hour spots in Miami for many reasons, but the main one is the atmosphere. Although, the drink deals are a close second. 

Happy hour starts at 4PM and goes until 8PM every day. That’s plenty of time to put down a few cocktails and some oysters, if you ask me. Cheap drink deals here include various $9 cocktails, $5 beers, $7 wines, and even $6 mini martinis. 

Check out Sweet Liberty inside Boulan South Beach hotel, right in between the Miami Beach Convention Center and Collins Park.

If you come and visit Miami without making the drive over to Historic Virginia Key Beach Park or Hobie Island Beach Park, then you’re doing something wrong. If you do go and visit those places while you’re here, but you don’t stop at Rusty Pelican on the way, you’re doing something really wrong. 

Rusty Pelican features one of the best happy hours Miami has to offer, hands down. The menu is huge and includes deals on beer, wine, wells, and even half off a long list of food items. Happy hour is Monday through Thursday, from 4PM to 6PM in their lounge area.

7 days a week, from 3PM to 6PM, you can indulge in SUGARCANE’s happy hour specials to go, which is great for those nights when you’d rather just stay in. For dine in, happy hour is still from 3PM to 6PM, but the deals are only available from Monday to Friday.

Happy hour here is Monday through Friday from 3PM to 7PM and it’s packed full of cheap drink specials. If you’re wondering what to drink at EST. 33, I’d go with one of the house-made craft brews. 

My favorite beers that I tried here were the 33 Pale Ale, Legend Lager, and the Brickell Brown. If you’re indecisive, like me, I recommend grabbing a flight of beer to try a few and find one you really like.

The happy hour menu is full of handcrafted cocktails that will refresh you and give you a great buzz, as well. Just don’t forget about the food specials! They offer $8 bites like wings, dip and chips, spring rolls, and many more.

Monty’s Raw Bar is always my go-to spot when I’m in the mood for happy hour drinks and some live music. This place is like the ultimate waterfront tiki bar here in Miami. 

Every day from Monday to Friday, starting at 4PM and ending at 7PM, you can get cheap happy hour drinks and food. They have oysters, peel & eat shrimp, and stone crab claws depending on the time of year. 

The specials here include $6 select cocktails, frozen drinks, and various wines; $5 well drinks and craft beers; $4 imports and $3 domestic drafts. What more could you ask for?


The Sylvester

3456 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33127
Phone: 305-364-5635
Visit Website

The Sylvester is one of my favorite places to get drinks near Miami, mainly due to the convenient location and quirky atmosphere, but also because of the quality of their mixology. 

They call it Rush Hour here at The Sylvester and boy is it the time to stop by. The prices actually fluctuate by the hour here at The Sylvester, which is interesting, but for the most part, happy hour is from 5PM to 8PM with a “power hour” somewhere in there. 

Come here between Wednesday and Sunday to take advantage of all their cheap drink deals and maybe even grab a bite to eat. 


Bar Nancy

Next up, we’re heading to the Little Havana part of Miami to a place called Bar Nancy. They’re located right off of Southwest 8th Street, just west of the Calle Ocho Walk of Fame.

Bar Nancy has live music all the time, so if you need a place to go and get a drink while you jam out to some music, this is it. Happy hour is every day that they’re open, from 4PM to 7PM, plenty of time to tie one on. 

I recommend the Donkey Punch made with Smirnoff, hibiscus, ginger beer, lime, and mint. It’s wonderfully refreshing.
