One of South Florida’s most appealing characteristics is the sun, so why wait until it goes down to get a buzz on? Take your mind away from nightclubs, happy hours and last call, and move the party, or darty, up a few hours. To offer a little help, here are some of the best spots to day drink in Miami Beach.

Monty’s on South Beach

Located on the southeast coast of the island, Monty’s on South Beach invites patrons to dine and drink right on the scenic Meloy Channel. The patio looks out on a marina offering the perfect atmosphere for a daytime party filled with margaritas and bourbon watermelon lemonade.

Broken Shaker

Considered one of the best cocktail bars in the world, Broken Shaker is an unassuming shack in the hip backyard of a local hostel. Surrounding a pool, the outdoor area has plenty of lounge chairs and inflatable tubes to enjoy libations like the Cranky Panky—Bombay Dry Gin with Dolin Rouge, Amaro Di ANgostura, and Fernet Branca.

On a Boat

The Caribbean Spirit is self-dubbed as the ultimate party boat in Miami. The pontoon-style sailboat takes guests for daylong excursions into Biscayne Bay and the ocean for snorkeling, swimming and with open and cash bar options.

South Beach

The sand and the ocean, beautiful people in their swimwear, and the hustle and bustle of Ocean Drive behind—South Beach is our city’s most popular attraction. So, why not spice it up with a few drinks? If you’re worried about getting in trouble, just check out our guide to hiding your booze in South Beach.
