Brickellista’s Local Happy Hour Hot Spots

Brickell Miami Local Suggestions for Happy Hour Hot Spots and Cocktails

Whisper Cocktail Lounge

I know, I know this place has a name that sounds more like a strip club than a cool HH spot, but bear with me. Located on the 50th floor of the W Brickell with impeccable views of Miami, Whisper is changing things up for the locals. Bounce Back Thursday’s is the newest happy hour on the block with 80’s and 90’s theme featuring local DJs spinning the best throwback classic hits. Not enough? How about board games and candy treats (think: Ring Pop’s and Fun Dip). $5 Cocktails $6 Beers

Bonding has been one of my favorite neighborhood spots for years and they recently expanded their selections by adding a yummy happy hour. Available nightly from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. Bonding’s happy hour features $5 bites like the Bonding Taco with tempura red snapper, lettuce, and spicy mayo along with $6 signature cocktails and $3 wines.

Tuesday through Saturday you can indulge in Marion’s fabulous happy hour from 5-7pm. This happy hour has an ample offering of bites and tasty cocktails. Julie and I used to frequent this spot and indulge with their $1 Blue Point Oysters, $5 Goat Cheese Croquettes and $12 Black Truffle Pizzeta. Their vinos are priced perfectly at $5 a glass and they offer $4 brewskis.

Pawn Broker

The Downtown scene is taking shape and it’s thanks to spots like Pawn Broker at the Langford Hotel. I used to kill happy hour at this spot last year and recently I came back to give it a whirl once again. Their $7 cocktails, $6 wines, and $5 beers are perfect for post work woes. And their menu selection with Taquitos and Roasted Beet Hummus help keep your belly in tact so you can keep on drinkin’.

Black Market

A few weeks ago I stumbled into Black Market to fall in love with the jams. This 5,500-square-foot space offers everything a sports fan could want –  30 TV screens, a pool table, arcade games, and game-day specials. But more important the music is on fire. I rarely dance at happy hours, but give me a few vinos and I’ll shake it like Beyonce. Black Market is one of the newer joints downtown and has a great happy hour filled with professionals looking to escape work. Check their website for current specials and game day calendars.

SUGAR at the EAST Hotel

My friends don’t call me Queen of the East for no reason! The Tea Room at Sugar has become one of my staple spots in Brickell. And while SUGAR doesn’t offer generous happy hour specials the views make up for the cost. My pick is the $10 Albariño paired with the Lamb Satay.

Brickell Miami Local Suggestions for Happy Hour Hot Spots and Cocktails Bodega Taqueria & Tequila

My friend Jess and I have a serious taco obsession and we both happily make the trek to Miami Beach for the $2 happy hour tacos at Bodega. I love it so much that last summer I met Danielle and Adrienne almost every day at Bodega for happy hour. I should get a medal for loyalty and commitment. So what are the happy hour deets? $2 Tacos, $3 Chips and Guacamole, $5 Tequila Shots, $4 cervesas, and $6 margaritas
