Where to Get Nice and Drunk on a Sunday in Miami

Sunday is often seen as a day of rest — the Sabbath — a day where one can find redemption for the sins committed during the prior six days. In some parts of the United States, Sunday is so pure you are not even allowed to purchase liquor.

Fortunately, we live in Miami-Dade County, where Sunday has become the new Saturday, with a slew of monthly and weekly parties to choose from. As we have a few months until football season starts, we figured now would be a good time to highlight some of Miami's best Sunday party spots.

The weekly Sunday Side Up Summer Series is already a couple of weeks strong. It goes from 6 p.m. to midnight, featuring drink specials like $20 buckets of five beers and bottles of sparkling wine for $28. There's always live music spinning in the garden with a recent edition featuring sets by Dude Skywalker, Baez, Patrick Walsh, and Atomyard. In a recent interview with New Times, event promoter and member of Dude Skywalker Fabio Galarce described their weekly mission like this: "What we've done, which is a bit unprecedented, is we are showcasing everyone in Miami from every major underground club."

It's free entry before midnight every Sunday night at this South Beach club as they celebrate Jet Set Sundays. Judging from the hashtag (#JETSETSundays) there's a lot of confetti and plenty of scantily clad people involved in this weekly party sponsored by Dom Perignon. This party is for those looking for less of a lazy Sunday.

Ball & Chain, 1513 SW Eighth St., Miami; 305-643-7820; ballandchainmiami.com.
Every Sunday down at Ball & Chain is "Sunday at the Ocho," a no-cover, all-ages family friendly festivity from 2 to 8 p.m. with live music, drink specials, and food specials like paella or barbecue. But once a month the Little Havana spot sprinkles in a special "Pineapple Sunday" edition, which owner Zack Bush described to us as "a way to showcase Miami's music scene. Instead of just one band playing, we put five bands on the Pineapple stage." The June Pineapple Sunday featured the Politix, Electric Kif, Juke, Magic City Hippies, Lemon City Trio, and DJ Le Spam. The date of Pineapple Sunday is usually announced a week or two in advance, so keep an eye on B&C's social media so you don't miss out. 

Purdy Lounge, 1811 Purdy Ave., Miami Beach; 305-531-4622; purdylounge.com.
Purdy advertises its Chocolate Sundays as "the hottest hip-hop nights on the Beach." They offer $6 Jager/High Life combos — which they dub Happy Meals — and offer prizes for the winner of the weekly drunk'n spelling bee.

The Little Havana establishment prefers to call the first day of the week "Sundaze," with $4 drink specials every Sunday night from 9 to 11 p.m. You can normally count on a hell of a soundtrack, and recent musical guests have included Spinser Tracy, Jun-Ill, and Telescopic Thieves.

The Forge, 432 W. 41st St., Miami Beach; 305-538-8533; theforge.com.
On Sunday nights the Miami Beach steakhouse converts into a soul club for Remastered, an evening celebrating R&B, funk, and '90s hip-hop often featuring live music. Come with an appetite as the night features a special soul food menu for the festivities.

On the last Sunday of each month comes Double Stubble at Gramps, which last year this paper dubbed the numero uno monthly gay party. The upcoming June 26 edition starts promptly at 5 p.m. and features resident DJs Daniel Hottpants Blair, Mystic Bill, and Terence Tabeau, and will be hosted by Robert Strummer, Tommy Ralph Pace, and Kurt Fowl.

Lagniappe House, 3425 NE Second Ave., Miami; 305-576-0108; lagniappehouse.com.
Sunday nights at the wine bar are reserved for live jazz with the KJ Circles Band featuring Kenneth Jimenez on bass, Derek Fairholm on keys, and Rodolfo Zuniga at drums. In Lagniappe's backyard, you can chill hard while you glide into Monday with a belly full of wine and cheese.
