Smith & Wollensky

At the southern tip of Miami Beach, South Pointe Park offers some of the best views in South Florida. Smith & Wollensky's outdoor bar gives you direct views of Government Cut, where you can watch the giant container ships navigate their way through the small channel on their way to Port Everglades. Pre-pandemic, it was the ideal place to grab a drink late on a Saturday afternoon to watch the cruise ships go out (and it will be again once cruises resume out of the port). The bar gets quite busy, but it's worth the wait to find a seat. Order a smart drink — a martini, say, or Champagne. Back it up with oysters or an order of confit bacon. Go ahead and dress up in your finery — Smith & Wollensky makes day drinking classy.
