From low-key dive bars to upscale craft cocktail dens, Coral Gables‘ party scene is nothing if not diverse. Here are our favorite spots to get your booze on.
1. The Mighty
Located on Coral Way, The Mighty is a low-key spot for locals that like innovative cocktails and craft beer. It’s got the vibe of a grungy neighborhood pub, but the food of an innovative gastro bar. Try the bacon Brussels sprouts.
Come for the Asian-fusion cuisine, stay for the belly dancers and hookahs. Offering outdoor patio seating in a lush courtyard garden at the Village of Merrick Park, it also makes for a great brunch spot.
3. John Martin’s Irish Pub & Restaurant
John Martin’s is probably Miami’s most authentic Irish pub. Featuring live music some nights, grabbing a pint here is a Miami right of passage.
4. Cibo Wine Bar
A floor-to-ceiling wine vault. To-die-for charcuterie boards. Copious amounts of pasta. This spot is for serious winos and hearty eaters.
5. Tap 42
Tap 42 serves great food every day of the week, but come during the weekend to take advantage of the bottomless brunch and watch Miami day drink.
6. Uvaggio Wine Bar
Here’s another hotspot for winos. Visit for curated tastings, talks by sommeliers, great happy hour deals, jazz nights and even a blind tasting contest.
7. Fritz & Franz Bierhaus
Welcome to Bavaria — in Coral Gables. Here you’ll find German beers aplenty, plus screens for watching the game and a stage for live music.
