Archive Diver - South Side Bar & Grill Late Night Ad from 1988

Archive Diver found this ad for the South Side Bar & Grill (8099 S. Dixie Highway) in a 1988 issue of the Miami New Times.

According to ad copy they were open from 10 p.m. - 6 a.m. every night and they wanted you to "Make us your late night place."

This joint sounds cool, but we can't find out anything about it except that there are places with the same name in Allentown, PA; Defiance, OH; and that Lipstik strip club seems to currently be located where South Side Bar & Grill Miami used to be.

The tag line on the ad says "When the bands cook, so does our kitchen!"

Food and drink and music. Fuckin' awesome. Here's the full ad, leave us a comment if you've got anything to say about it.....
