A hunting lodge in Coconut Grove. That's what the owners of Mr. Moe's wanted to recreate ten years ago, so they imported river rock from Colorado, logs from Nova Scotia, and a whole lot of stuffed animals -- including one big ole bear. The philosophy being if you build a log cabin in the middle of the Grove, they will come.
And they did. For ten years, Mr. Moe's has been one popular bar, serving tourists and families by day, college kids by night. Never to be confused with the trendy lounges and clubs of downtown Miami and South Beach, Mr. Moe's caters to people that want to get their drink on, ride a mechanical bull, watch sports, and listen to live music.
ESPN loved the joint so much, it named it as one of America's best sports bars in 2010. Not too shabby.

This Saturday, November 19th, the iconic bar will celebrate it's
birthday with a party so big it's spilling out onto the street. Starting
at 2 p.m., Mr. Moe's will have continuous entertainment, drink
specials, music, and fun.
The daytime features family fun with a dunk tank, strolling magicians,
and face painters. Ongoing food and drinks specials, raffles and door
prizes make this a good place to take the kids for a late lunch or early
Then comes the adult fun.
From 5 to 7 p.m. enjoy acoustic band Blue Steel, as you tank up on ten cent well drinks and draft beer, along with a free buffet.
The party continues until 3 a.m. with drink specials, liquor brand
promotions, sexy bull riding and wing eating contests, fire jugglers,
swimsuit fashion show, giveaways, a photo booth, and continuous live entertainment,
including the Eric Charles Band from 7 to 11 p.m. DJ Arokk spins from 11
p.m. to 3 a.m.
Mr. Moe's signature drink Moose Juice will be $5
all night. What's in a Moose Juice? According to manager Dayna Lindsay
Levin, "No one knows or wants to know what's in it -- but it's delicious.
Actually it's our version of a rum punch -- strong and sweet".
We can't wait to do shots with the bear.
This is what happens to Santa's bad reindeer.
