Tavern In the Grove

3416 Main Highway Coconut Grove, FL 33133 | Coconut Grove |

Location Description:

There's pleasant bumping and grinding as you inch your way to the bar and your next frosty one. There are darts, a pool table, and a couple of videogames, but the entertainment is mostly supplied by a jukebox laden with hard rock. They occasionally slip in a little hip-hop. That's what they're listening to at the University of Miami these days, and the Tavern is a home away from home for underclassmen. Pitchers are preferred to bottles; after all, college kids are looking to get the most bang from Mommy and Daddy's buck. To paraphrase Matthew McConaughey in Dazed and Confused: "That's what I love about these [college] girls. I get older, and they stay the same age." Yes, they do.
