For tourist this may be great but they treat the locals like crap. They tend to forget once the tourist are gone the locals are the ones who support local business. On 2 occasions I've had terrible experience. Winter Music Fest they forgot to post that happy does not exist during that week in fact the drinks cost more with terrible service and gratuity included. Last week we went to watch Heat vs 76rs game only to be greeted by a waitress that said please read the signs "$100 minimum per hour" it was placed all over the tables. After the tourist are gone the locals are the ones who support these businesses. I'm over Cleavelander food is worst than before anyway. I rather go to any of the surrounding hotels/restaurants.
Best Value on Ocean Drive Miami 2010 - Happy hour at the Clevelander Hotel
1020 Ocean Drive
Miami Beach, FL 33139
Value — like good looks, wealth, and the quality of Will Ferrell movies — is all relative. A good hotel value along the Champs-Élysées, for instance, won't much resemble a value motel along North Biscayne Boulevard. So, what exactly is the meaning of value on Ocean Drive, the beating heart of South Beach's triple-priced, sidewalk-model-hawking tourist-trap racket? In our book, it's a halfway decent-priced beer or rum-and-Coke poolside, cooled by a soft ocean breeze and surrounded by hundreds of tight-bodied partiers dancing the night away. That's exactly what you'll get during happy hour at the newly refurbished Clevelander Hotel, a posh, over-the-top, über-South Beach party zone in the heart of Ocean Drive. From 4 to 7 p.m. every Monday through Friday, every one of six draft beers, 11 bottled beers, all well liquor, and all house wines are half-price. Did we mention there are nine bars inside, all wrapped around a huge pool right on Ocean Drive? Sounds like value to us.
