Lou's Beer Garden

7337 Harding Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33141 | Mid/North Beach | 305-704-7879

Location Description:

Hidden inside the New Hotel, Lou's Beer Garden is a hip, inviting place to kick back and relax. No need to dress up; just throw on some flip-flops and head to this North Beach gastropub. Diners looking for a restaurant will be surprised to find only a small bar in the hotel's courtyard. Tables surround the swimming pool, where hotel guests and beer enthusiasts hang out. Order from a selection of about 12 microbrews, including Chimay Triple, Rogue Dead Guy Ale, and Flying Dog Brewery's Raging Bitch. Start with crowd-favorite crispy sardines ($6.50) and then move on to one of proprietor Lou Ramirez's other tasty creations. Angry Shrimp ($8.95) - blackened and served with sweet-and-sour sauce - or squid stuffed with Manchego cheese, chorizo, herbs, and spices are solid accompaniments to the cold brew. Or try Lou's Beach Market Burger ($12.50), served with traditional condiments, lettuce, onions, bacon, and feta and American cheeses. Before you know it, you'll have made a few new friends and consumed one more beer than intended. And if you're there past midnight, you might witness a free spirit hopping into the pool, but that's all good at Lou's. Sit back, kick off the flip-flops, and enjoy good beer and food.
