- First down to the Dragon Bar at the Blue Parrot Hotel for 2

La Rana Cansada, on 10th St. between 5th and 10th Ave., is
the place where locals go out for drinks. Nice atmosphere.
For the hippest bar in town. hit Fly, at the corner of 5th
Avenue and 12th Street. Go upstairs from Hotel Deseo. Total Miami
Beach experience like a tropical Delano. Outdoor seating overlooking
5th Avenue, a swimming pool, jacuzzi, and pool deck. Great attention
to design and details.
For a perfect people watching drink, try the Tequilaria on
Quinta Avenida. You can do shots from $5 to $300 bottles of tequila.
Cascahuin is the best for the price.
