Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill: Welcome to the heartbeat of Midtown Miami. This spot-on-the-corner surrounded by a garden border offers a unique hideaway. Sugarcane is a fusion of Caribbean flair (palm leaf ceiling fans), Asian accents (fountains and lanterns), and modern touches (friendly servers in red chucks). It's real charm lies primarily in the indoor/outdoor bar and garden seating area. It seems to be buzzing with people all the time.
Lost Weekend: The book Lost Weekend explored a five-day alcoholic binge and the bar entices one to do the same. No stuffies in this dive joint, just good old fashion fun. Dim lighting, air hockey, pool tables, a juke box, loud music, and a second floor balcony to overlook the shenanigans.
