This month, we take a different approach for our nightlife page by providing you with a number of bars that are simply more “chill.” Take in soothing views on some fine rooftop bars, sip a craft cocktail by a fireplace in Brickell, or treat yourself to a drink that will whisk away whatever it is that ails you.
LET’S GO ON A SAFARI
1300 S. Miami Ave., Miami
The newly revamped SAAM Lounge at SLS Brickell is a cozy spot made for late-night cocktails with friends. The chill, chic lounge is decorated with safari-inspired décor like African masks, antique globes, and more, and features both an indoor and outdoor space. It’s decorated with comfortability in mind, invoking a familiar feel as if you’re relaxing in your own home. A soothing fireplace, as well as lovely views of downtown Miami are featured outside, and inside you can grab curated craft cocktails and bites by José Andrés. Try The La Rosa for a fun, fruity drink: belvedere vodka, strawberries, and rose water. Delish!
ALE FOR YOUR AILMENT
Sunset Place, 5701 Sunset Dr., Miami
Popular shopping mall Sunset Place recently got a new food hall, Yumbrella, and it comes with a one-of-a-kind bar, The Tonic. This apothecary-style watering hole aims to take you back to a time when alcohol was medicinal. Their cocktails come mixed with elixirs, herbs, kombucha, fruits, natural juices, and more—giving it a more “healthy” spin than your typical rum and coke, or vodka water lime. They also have craft beer, and a full wine and liquor menu, if that’s more your thing. Another perk? Live entertainment plays at the bar quite often, with a mix of jazz acts, DJs, and bands!
VIEWS AT MUSE
1780 Polk St., Hollywood
Hollywood is up-and-coming with rooftop bars, kava bars, and fine dining restaurants continuing to pop up and embellish the scene. Check out skyline views at The Muse Rooftop Bar and Lounge at the Circ Hotel. Located in the heart of Hollywood by Young Circle, this rooftop bar has it all. Wonderful views, plenty of chairs to lounge in, and of course, libations! Enjoy signature cocktails, brews, and wine, as well as some of their tasty “light bites” like sushi, poke tacos, or tuna tataki. Oh and remember, when you take that perfect selfie with the skyline, make sure to use their hashtag: #MuseViews.
