Cucu's Nest defies expectations by absentmindedly remaining a dive bar while surrounded by a growing city. It's like a beautiful yet incomprehensible time capsule. The couches, the walls, the pool table, the jukebox, the dance floor, the four TV sets — it's all so weird but somehow feels so right. As the northern end of South Beach has become hugely popular, the nightclub types have pinned Cucu's Nest as a place to stop off between more polished venues. And why not? There's a long happy hour seven days a week from 2 to 7 p.m., and each day offers different specials, including Coronas for $5 and whiskey and Coke for $7. It's still a glorious dive of a bar where you can drink away your troubles and remain real. It doesn't seem possible that Cucu's Nest will ever change.
