A chilled out place to beat the stress amidst a crowd that couldn't care less about pretensions. A great example of a typical dive bar, Ted's Hideaway mostly has locals coming here. It has happy hours twice a day and the prices get slashed to an extent where you could end up drinking more than you can contain. With its dark interior, it sure makes a great venue for watching football with your pals.
Club Deuce attracts folks from all stratas of society with its laid-back aura. With the jukebox plays a wide variety of music, the fun quotient of this place increases by the hour; the later, the better. Equipped with a horseshoe bar and pool table, it is surely set with all the elements that make a night out experience at a bar truly amazing. First established in 1926, this old timer still shines through when other establishments have come and gone. Don't forget to carry cash though as this 21-over club doesn't accept credit cards.
In the midst of the South Beach glamor and hype is this very low-key dive bar. Very much a local hangout, Lost Weekend is also a great place for visitors to get a break from the relentless fabulousness that is South Beach. You and a group of your friends can kick back, down shots made with things like Goldschlager and Rumplemintz and play pool or foosball.
The Bar is aptly named since it is "the" bar at Coral Gables. Established in 1946, The Bar is still going strong. There are plenty of beers on tap and lots of fine liquors. The Bar is perfect for just a drink, but they also serve top-notch bar food, such as fish and chips or a grilled steak sandwich. It is darkly lit which creates a mysterious atmosphere, perfect for a date or a night with friends.
Coconut Grove's favorite dive bar, Barracuda is about as far as you can get from South Beach's glitz and glamor. The wood decorating the bar is all salvaged from an old shrimp boat and the bar is full of all kinds of entertainment like pool tables, beer pong tables and televisions for watching the game. The menu features Barracuda's famous fresh grilled snapper sandwich and their grilled mahi sandwich, as well as all kinds of bar food favorites from nachos to wings to even the addictive "crack pie" for dessert. From behind the bar comes a selection of craft beers which are on Happy Hour special every day until 8p.
If you're in the mood to step away from glitzy, sophisticated Miami nightlife and into a true dive bar, look no further. The decor comes with no frills, the bartenders are friendly and the drinks are strong and cheap. Happy's Stork Lounge also has an internet jukebox, a few touch-screen trivia machines and some vintage arcade games like Pac-Man.
