Purdy Lounge

1811 Purdy Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33139 | South Beach | 305-531-4622

Location Description:

This off-the-beaten-path (as in off Washington) bar has the beer-hall vibe of a street corner hook-up joint with a touch of South Beach strut. An eclectic mix of music and people sway through what's usually an elbow-room-only lounge.
