One of the best parts of Miami Beach is that it’s outdoor-weather every month of the year. This comes in handy especially around happy hour. Ocean breezes, sunny skies, and a city famous for its party culture make this an excellent city for outdoor fun. Here are the best spots to enjoy an outdoor drink in Miami Beach.
The Front Porch Cafe
This stylish outdoor patio-cafe on Ocean Drive is a short walk away from the Winter Haven Hotel, and one of the best places to drink outdoors in Miami Beach. Located on the city’s most iconic street, The Front Porch Cafe is a popular stop-off for locals and discerning travelers. Daily happy hours from 4-7pm offer 1/2 price drink specials for your favorite cocktails.
Order up a mint mojito and step back into the flashy and exciting world of 1950’s Cuba at this favorite local restaurant. Havana 1957 has a few locations around the city, but one of our favorites is here on Ocean Drive, where sidewalk seating under palm trees and neon lights create a lively atmosphere to drink outdoors in Miami Beach. The long rum-list is a good place to start when visiting Havana 1957 for drinks.
The front patio at Naked Taco feels like a dining room at a hip, contemporary Mexican restaurant, despite being totally outside. Cozy seating, a large roof held up by pillars, and a bustling Collins Avenue alongside all make eating and drinking outdoors here a special experience. For those looking to loosen up, the Naked Taco serves frosty margaritas all day long, as well as signature sangrias and a variety of original cocktails.
Naked Taco. 1111 Collins Ave. (305) 534-8455
Local House Miami
Sidewalk seating with stylish wooden tables, cozy wide-set chairs, and some of the best New American food in all of Miami Beach, Local House is quite the destination. For enjoying cocktails at this peaceful and stylish getaway, the options are plentiful. We recommend stopping by for the Local House’s famous brunch, where you can indulge in an Italian Bloody Mary, or pitchers of mimosas and bellinis.
Winter Haven Hotel
Grab a cocktail at our lobby bar and head up to the Winter Haven Hotel’s private rooftop for some drinks in the sunshine. Views of Ocean Avenue and the Atlantic Ocean make this one of the most spectacular spots to enjoy an outdoor drink in Miami Beach. Additionally, you can also enjoy some wine, beer, or cocktails at our onsite restaurant Il Bolognese, with outdoor seating right on Ocean Avenue.
