- Union Beer Store, Little Havana
What they’re known for: Brews and Natural Wines
Yelpers say: The perfect little craft beer spot for those yeast aficionados who take pride in a good brew. You’ll find the everyday beer alongside some rare bottles. The Miami beer scene has progressively taken a new approach to what beer is, how it’s sold, and most importantly the ambience it attracts. Some might consider it a bar but if you stroll the displays- it’s tough not to leave with a brew or two to add to your collection. – Alexa C.
- Florida Keys Brewing, Islamorada
What they’re known for: Local brews with fruity and unique flavors.
Yelpers Say: If you’re in Islamorada and only have time for 1 brewery .. stop here!! If you’re a beer lover. The beer here and the outside tropical patio are the best of Islamorada. There’s live music every day, and it’s really cool vibes here! For a brewery in the keys, this one has the best beer compared to local competition. – Stephanie S.
- Swizzle Rum Bar & Drinkery, Miami Beach
What they’re known for: A speakeasy vibe in an intimate setting offering up sophisticated craft cocktails and a selection of more than 150 rums.
Yelpers Say: Swizzle was an unexpected delight in South Beach! We wanted a couple cocktails after dinner without bracing the partygoers. Swizzle was a bit tricky to find – ring the bell 5 times and get ready for a great mixology experience!
The service was fantastic. Our bartender really pushed us to trust and try something new, so if you’re not a rum fanatic, fear not! I went from the Japanese highball, which was pleasantly peppery, to the Newburgh Sour and WOW was it fantastic! Best drink I’ve had in awhile, it was so creative with a sprinkle of nutmeg to bring it all together. My boyfriend got the El Presidente even though he’s typically a tequila/mezcal guy and was similarly wowed... – Sam R.
- Vegan & Juice, Doral
What they’re known for: Juices, smoothies and healthy bites.
Yelpers Say: Their juices are amazing, healthy and full of flavor!
What they’re known for: The perfect blend of coffees, teas, and photographs that create a one-of-a-kind vibe.
Yelpers Say: What I love about Miami is all the coffee you can try! And this coffee shop is no different! They have such creative lattes! We tried the banana bread latte and let me tell you it felt like it took a bite out of the real thing. The cafe con leche nitro cold brew and wow it’s something I need in my life. Also the guava and cream cheese bagel is a must! – Melanie O.
