10 Best Bars in Brickell

Updated: Mar 18, 2021

Miami is known for nightlife and the most common area for visitors to flock to is South Beach. What many visitors don't know about is a neighborhood called Brickell. Brickell is a vibrant and social urban environment in Miami.

NOTE: This list does not include venues which are primarily known for being a lounge or a club.

Here is a list of the Best Bars in Brickell.

Baby Jane

Neighborhood: Brickell

Address: 500 Brickell Avenue, Miami, FL 33131


What's unique? They have incredible food and the best Ramen in Miami. Facts.

What's great? The décor and the crafted drinks.

What's not great? It's a small space. They usually have a DJ spinning and it's just too loud.

Tip: Unless you choose Baby Jane as a late-night spot, I recommend heading there for happy hour or staying until about 9 or 10pm.


Neighborhood: Brickell

Address: 1010 Brickell Avenue, Miami, FL 33131


What's unique? For now, it's a hidden gem. Excellent cocktails and it's adjacent to DC Pie Co. Pizzeria.

What's great? The atmosphere, cocktails, beer selection.

What's not great? It can be hard to find (but that's also a good thing)

Tip: It's located right underneath the 10th street metromover station.

Better Days

Neighborhood: Brickell

Address: 75 SE 6th Street, Miami, FL 33131


What's unique? The only true dive bar in Brickell. Free popcorn.

What's great? The local bar atmosphere, the games, and the drinks.

What's not great? It draws a younger crowd and sometimes there are fights.

Tip: If it's too crowded, head somewhere else. You'll know it's crowded if there is a bouncer at the door.

SoCal Cantina

Neighborhood: Brickell

Address: 1000 S Miami Avenue, Miami, FL 33130


What's unique? They have the best tacos in Brickell and great drinks. They play reggae all the time.

What's great? Their selection of margaritas and their expanded seating area on the side.

What's not great? Taco Tuesdays are very busy. Fair warning.

Tip: SoCal is located within a larger restaurant called Dolores Lolita. It used to be more difficult to spot, but people are sometimes still confused. The bar is to the left of the main entrance to Dolores Lolita.

Sweet Caroline

Neighborhood: Brickell

Address: 1111 SW 1st Avenue, Miami, FL 33130


What's unique? It's the only true Karaoke bar in Miami. Karaoke is literally the purpose of it's existence.

What's great? The song selection is on point and the atmosphere is great. Everyone sings along. Oh and the drinks are pretty good.

What's not great? It is a small space and gets crowded quickly.

Tip: Fridays tend to be better than Saturdays, my opinion.


Neighborhood: Brickell

Address: 788 Brickell Plaza, Miami, FL 33131


What's unique? Sugar is the only rooftop bar in Brickell.

What's great? The drinks are worth paying for.

What's not great? It can take a very long time to get a drink, even if you sit at the bar.

Tip: Sugar is located on the roof of a hotel. You'll need to wait in line on the ground level to be ushered up via elevator to the top floor.

American Social

Neighborhood: Brickell

Address: 690 SW 1st Court, Miami, FL 33130


What's unique? It has a great location right on the Miami River.

Batch Gastropub

Neighborhood: Brickell

Address: 30 SW 12th Street, Miami, FL 33130
