Readers' Choice: Bar
We thought local business impresario Amir Ben-Zion would retreat quietly into Miami nightlife history after he shut down Domo Japones in the Design District. We were wrong. This past October, he opened Bardot, which reminds us of the late Pawn Shop Lounge. Knickknacks and suggestive artwork from Ben-Zion's personal collection are strewn across the space. Though the address says North Miami Avenue, the entrance is located in the back. The only hint of it is a simple red awning. Get there before 11 p.m. and beat the mad rush; capacity is limited due to fire codes. During the high season, the lounge hosts a two-for-one happy hour from 6:30 to 9 p.m. In the summer, though, doors are open only from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m. Well drinks start at $9, but try the specialty cocktails for $12. There's the "honey mule," a mix of Russian Standard vodka, ginger beer, honey syrup, and fresh-pressed ginger. Or go for the namesake cocktail, the Brigitte, which blends Russian Standard vodka, crème de noisette, and Kahlúa.

This place is terrible. With drink prices that insult the average intelligence and the rude bartenders, well, you'd have to be mad to go there. Who picks these "winners"?

Sadly, Alexis, I must agree. I, too, used to be a faithful devotee of Bardot. The allure was so great that I even tolerated & overlooked the rude, spindly barwenches. Until one day I realized: "Hey wait, I don’t have fun here anymore. Let me spend my hard-earned money elsewhere.” If I want to be treated like a filthy Dickensian street urchin, I’ll just go to South Beach.

When you don't feel like driving to south beach, but still want to be surrounded by douche bags. This place was neat when it first opened.... 420 friendly, free pool, pinball machine. now its just a south beach wanna-be.... popped collars, door guy, "Lists", rude & cunty bartenders... oh! Bardouche.... how far you've fallen.
