Not into the big clubs? Hang at these new Miami bars and lounges.

Baru Kendall

Miami just got a bounty of new places for you to lounge from Brickell to Kendall to Miami Beach. 


Anthony Acuna, mixing it up at Nancy, Little Havana’s first craft cocktail bar.

When you take a seat at the bar and get your first glimpse of the cocktail menu at Bar Nancy, it’s easy to forget you’re in Little Havana. They aren’t just slanging mixed drinks at this hole in the wall bar with a nautical theme. With its wood-lined walls, Betsy Ross American flag hanging, and bar graced overhead by a cutout of a ship’s hull wearing the bar’s namesake, Bar Nancy is Miami’s newest artisanal craft cocktail dive – and quite possibly, it’s best yet.

Doheny Room

Opening this month in the Delano is the Doheny Room, the Los Angeles-based celeb hot spot described as “European meets California farmhouse feel.” And if that confuses you, imagine at one booth a Jonas brother and at another Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder. True story and the juxtaposition of old Hollywood and new. As for Miami Beach’s version, who knows, but we’re sure it will be a swank Star Wars bar of sorts when it opens. Read more.

Baru Latin Bar

Baru Kendall

Baru Latin Bar, Kendall’s newest nightlife acquisition, is located at the Palms at Town & Country Mall, which is exactly where you expect a nightclub in Kendall to be. Helmed by Hector Antunez, the Kendall location is across from Blue Martini Kendall, another one of Kendall’s go-to (read: only) party spots. Read more.

Lounge al fresco in the expansive patio or head to the heart of the venue, a sweeping bar, and take your drink to one of the comfy couches and kick back. The best part: You can dine until the joint closes (at 5 a.m.) on legit chow.

Employees Only

The bar at Employees Only.

This place is seriously cool, Miami, and I don’t think we have anything else quite like it: a truly intimate cocktail bar with a touch Old World New York City charm serving an unfussy, yet ambitious bistro menu with admirable precision.
