Bougainvillea's Old Florida Tavern

The best neighborhood bar is the one closest to home, and Bougainvillea's, a snug, self-described old Florida tavern near the Shops at Sunset Place, is exactly that for those who live in the Greater Coral Gables/Pinecrest/Kendall triangle. Built inside a '40s-era cottage, it's a fine place to sip wine and contemplate humanity or to down beers with friends. The default light level is dim, there's a fireplace, and some tables are set up outside. The affectionately nicknamed Bougie's is one of the few neighborhood bars to offer live music on a regular basis.
