4. Blackbird Ordinary. 729 SW First Ave., Miami. This Brickell boozing establishment is a novelty among the area's dive bars and hoity-toity cocktail lounges. But remember, it's Brickell, so don't expect cheap sauce. Still, that $12 Blue Long Island is liquid candy. And the seamless blend of eclectic dance music (the DJs play a steady mix of hip-hop, '80s, classic rock, and indie gems), Connect Four/Jenga hub, and schmooze deck forge a very faddish allure. Oh, and about that "edible wall": The verdant slab isn't just a garnish; it's pure farm-to-cocktail goodness. Plus, Blackbird makes its own simple syrups from homegrown mint leaves and basil. Now that's progressive.

3. The Electric Pickle. 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Don't mess with the Pickle. Along with several other Wynwood bars this year, the Electric Pickle was subjected to a vexing police crackdown, causing the neighborhood music emporium to close temporarily. And in previous years, the venue endured brief closures due to "fire code violations." But "we can't be stopped... we won't be stopped," the staff said in an open letter to the Pickle people. The self-proclaimed "liquor-fueled love machine" continues to bestow the Miami electronic dance music scene with underground techno and house in a 3,500-square-foot, multi-area sanctum. And though signature cocktails cost $13, the Moore County Muddle and the Storm Chaser pack a punch. Oh, don't worry, cheapo — there are bargain brews too. Nothing fazes the Pickle, and that's what makes this place rad.

2. The Garret. 697 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Yes, it's the hideaway above the pulsing party at Grand Central. But something grimier is unfolding upstairs. The house-, trap-, and moobah-ridden Slow Roast Thursdays (the second Thursday of every month) and the eclectic Latin funk of Sabrosura (the third Thursday of every month) warm up the Garret for your girl's favorite party: the lionized Peach Fuzz, a Friday hoopla for the trillest hip-hop and club heads. Ladies sip complimentary vodka cocktails (from 11 p.m. to midnight) as resident DJ DZA spins everything from Uncle Luke to Ricky Rozay. The venue also hosts eclectic monthly acts — synthpop cutie Charli XCX and soul-jazz virtuoso Kevin Sandbloom recently graced its intimate stage — and has ignited His & Hers Saturdays, an indie-dance classics shindig. Hipsters like every kind of cool, and this spot has it all.

The Broken Shaker, where the refined hipsters hang.

The Broken Shaker, where the refined hipsters hang.

1. The Broken Shaker. 2727 Indian Creek Dr., Miami Beach. If elixirs and bitters are part of your boozing lexicon, you are what we call a refined hipster. And you belong at the Broken Shaker. Classic Prohibition-era cocktails are aplenty at this vintage-chic canteen in the Freehand Miami hostel (a retro revival of the historic Indian Creek Hotel), but the drinks are served with a nonpareil twist. The bar's eager mixologists concoct rare libations made with herbs from their own garden. A Mexican chocolate old-fashioned (Old Forester bourbon infused with bitter chocolate, ancho chili syrup, and bitters) and the Fruta de Agave (Florida grapefruit, Cocchi Americano, local honey, and El Jimador tequila) are just a sneak peek of the extensive, ever-evolving drink menu. Share a custom punch bowl with friends on the patio by the sparkling pool. Or channel your Mad Men alter ego with a smoke and a pisco sour on a groovy floral chaise longue. The drink prices are steep. But hey, you're a hipster in Miami. The world is at your feet.

My Voice Nation Help

Ive revealed an extraordinary small bar- - the Grove Spot. The foremost thing that emerged to me is the way affable and expert the staff are here. This is the first occasion when that I've been to Jamba Juice (regularly I might have somebody pick it up for me) however the administration alone will get me to return! The staff are continually ready to offer recommendations, as well.

The extent that the sustenance and smoothies go, I'm generally 100% fulfilled with what I get. The cereal is dependably incredible for breakfast. The berry pecan is off the menu yet that is the best approach to go! You have dried berries, cherries, pecan and tan sugar. Sweet yet not excessively sweet!

The smoothies are marvelous and there are a great deal of standard decisions, and in addition remarkable characters. My top choice (as such) are Pomegranate Power-Up and Razz Ma Tazz.

Likewise attempt them, visit their web http://grovespot.com or directly visit them at 3324 Virginia St  Coconut Grove, FL 33133, United States. See you there!
