Best Bars in Downtown Miami

Jordan Hinsch

Downtown Miami is just north of Brickell and is inland from Miami Beach. It's primarily known as a business district with not a whole lot going on. Luckily, there is a selection of pretty good bars which allow you to take a break from the "typical 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 Downtown Miami.

The Wharf

Neighborhood: Downtown

Address: 114 SW North River Drive, Miami, FL 33130


What's unique? They have food trucks and a few places to order drinks.

What's great? It's mostly outdoors and right on the Miami River.

What's not great? Barhopping is difficult. The Wharf has no other bars around.

Tip: Follow their Instagram @wharfmiami for deals and festivals.


Neighborhood: Downtown

Address: 1368 N Miami Avenue, Miami, FL 33130


What's unique? Their location is in a bit of a rough area but it's a hip environment.

What's great? Food and beer selection.

What's not great? The area around is rough.

Tip: Bring a group of friends.

Lost Boy

Neighborhood: Downtown

Address: 157 E Flagler Street, Miami, FL 33131


What's unique? I consider this bar to be "anti Miami". It has no sparkle, no pizzazz, it's just a nice looking bar which closely resembles a New York or Boston style.

What's great? The different styles of seating and the grand piano.

What's not great? There's not much to note here.

Tip: It's the only place I've seen in Miami that has darts!

Mama Tried

Neighborhood: Downtown

Address: 207 NE 1st Street, Miami, FL 33132


What's unique? It has very weird decor, but a fun vibe overall.

What's great? Drinks flowing.

What's not great? It can feel very dark inside.

Tip: Grab a booth, hang with friends, and control the jukebox.

Over Under

Neighborhood: Downtown

Address: 151 E Flagler Street, Miami, FL 33131


What's unique? It's a small storefront which serves primarily as a top-notch eatery.

What's great? Cocktails and craft beer. Seating outdoors.

What's not great? Outdoor seating is on the sidewalk.

Tip: The jackfruit nachos are fire.

The Corner

Neighborhood: Downtown

Address: 1035 N Miami Avenue, Miami, FL 33136


What's unique? It's called The Corner because it's located on a corner.

What's great? Some of the best drinks in Miami.

What's not great? Dark atmosphere.

Tip: It's near E11EVEN, so it naturally receives a lot of overflow traffic. Check before you head there, it has been closed due to Covid-19.
