With its red-lit interior, lounge atmosphere, and American cuisine, nowhere else says old-time Miami quite like Magnum. This classic bar and restaurant is located on the 79th Street Causeway and is known as a hot spot for older gay gentlemen. When Liza Minnelli and Nina Simone aren't blasting over the speakers, a live crooner and pianist re-create Broadway's best in the small stage area at the center of the venue. Surrounding the piano are barstools where patrons swoon to songs by Rodgers & Hammerstein. Magnum is also known for its homestyle fried chicken ($18.50), and people travel far and wide to munch on its crisp goodness. When it's in season, try the avocado with crab appetizer ($15.95). And puttanesca pasta ($15.95) will fill you up before you hit the Shack Bar outside, where you can drink the night away on a dime. The bar is a little Cape Cod and a little Key West, making you feel like you're on vacation without leaving town. There's a TV set, fun music, and a half-off beer-and-booze happy hour that runs daily from 5 to 8. There are also $4 margaritas and bloody marys and $3 roadkill shots so you can stay lu-bricated, as Lionel Richie says, all night long.
