The Best Happy Hour Bars in Miami

The Best Happy Hour Bars in Miami

by Lianamar Dávila Sanabria

Oh, happy hour… one of our favorite hours of the day. Everyday as you anxiously await for the clock to strike 5 p.m., instead of constantly checking TMZ.com or PerezHilton.com for the latest celebrity gossip, just check us out to find out what you have to look forward to after work! To spend your happiest hours at Miami’s top joints check out the following bars which we think are some of the best bars for happy hour in Miami.

Best Happy Hour Bar in Miami:
JB Kitchen & Bar
1250 S Miami Ave
Miami, FL 33130

To the delight of all happy hour hunters, JB’s has recently stepped up their happy hour game. Now their specials include wells for $4, house wines for $6, and draft and bottled beers for $2.50. Food options include fried yuca for $3.50 and artichoke and spinach dip for $5, along with their JB wings for $4, rock shrimp for $4.50, and cracklin' calamari for $5. Pass by after work Monday through Friday from 5 to 8 p.m.

Best Happy Hour Bar in Miami:
Tobacco Road
626 S Miami Ave
Miami, FL 33130

As part of Miami’s undisputed local happy hour king, Brickell is the home of this happy hour establishment, which is also the holder of the oldest liquor license in Miami. Every night of the week they have a different drink special and live music act during their 4 to 7 p.m. happy hour. Some of our favorite deals include 98-cent drinks on Fridays and all you can eat ribs and fries on Wednesday for just $10.99! It's prices like that that make happy hour at Tobacco Road really happy.

Best Happy Hour Bar in Miami:
8 oz. Burger Bar
1080 Alton Rd
Miami Beach, FL 33139

Don’t overlook South Beach as not having any decent after-work spots! Believe it or not, people actually do work there too. Their twofer deal runs Monday-Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. To accompany their signature 8 oz. burger, all 13 of their draft beers are two for one and liquor drinks are only $5. If you're looking for a great happy hour bar in SoBe, 8oz. Burger Bar is a great place to grab a beer and a bite to eat while letting all those workday troubles drift away.

Best Happy Hour Bar in Miami:
Vinyl & Kai
1131 Washington Ave
Miami, FL 33139

This is another SoBe joint making moves and is new to the neighborhood located on Washington Avenue between 11th and 12th. Plastered with old vinyl album covers, as per their name, this is the place you go to once you’ve hit an overload of house music and just want some good old school music and “kai,” which means food, in New Zealand (the owner’s home country). Drinks and apps are half-off on weekdays from 4 to 7 p.m. or flash your licenses to get 20% off every check for local Miamians.

Best Happy Hour Bar in Miami:
The News Lounge
5580 NE 4th Ct
Miami, FL 33137

What can be better than swings, couches, a pool table and ambient lighting? All of these make for an absolutely great chill place to hang out after work on a mellow Tuesday night (or any night) with friends or even on a date. Located right next to Soyka at The 55th Street Station, their charming outdoor area immediately makes you forgive its proximity to a still-growing nearby neighborhood. On the first Sunday of every month they even play a silent movie with a live DJ and musician playing an original soundtrack to the movie around 9 p.m. 

Best Happy Hour Bar in Miami:
Mia at Biscayne
20 Biscayne Blvd
Miami, FL 33132

Taking place Monday through Fridays from 4 to 8 p.m., their “After Work Social” includes half-off drinks and complimentary small bites and sushi tasting from 6 to 7 p.m. This mega-lounge offers an extensive food and drink menu for rather economical prices. We suggest you try their interesting-looking “round” croquetas that still taste just as good as the original ones (if you’re not familiar with this Latin snack, they’re usually a more rectangular shape).
