Why not try something new? From dancing with drag queens to drinking North Korea's "official" beer made in Miami, here are five places to drink that are anything but boring. Cheers!

Bar Nancy in Little Havana Gets New Menu. Revolutionary War-themed Bar Nancy opened in Little Havana last April with rustic, nautical-inspired decor and a healthy selection of craft cocktails. Now the laid-back drinking den, which recently changed its name to simply Nancy, has upped its offerings with a full menu of bar bites. Behind the food is Kat Alvarez, a former pastry chef with stints at Swine Southern Table & Bar, Beaker & Gray, and Fireman Derek’s Bakeshop.
