Ball & Chain

1513 SW Eighth St., Miami

You've downed plenty of drinks and indulged in a filling dinner, so what's next for your girls' night out in Miami? Of course it's dancing. Because of its genuinely unpretentious vibe, Ball & Chain on Calle Ocho is one of the best nightspots in town. While enjoying free well drinks from 8 to 10 p.m., dance your Wednesday night away, or get your karaoke on in front of an audience on the iconic Pineapple Stage. For a break from dancing and singing, people-watch from the indoor or outdoor bar. Arrive early to avoid the long line to get inside.
