1. Mac's Club Deuce. Mac's is Miami Beach's iconic dive bar. Here, you might just find Anthony Bourdain having a libation with locals, who come for the cheap drinks and instant time warp. Five-dollar domestic beers and well drinks all the time is a great deal. You can also get two-for-one drinks from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Be sure to carry a few bills, because this smoke-filled institution — yes, you can still smoke inside — is cash only. 222 14th St., Miami Beach; 305-531-6200;

2. The Scape Goat. For some of the cheapest drinks in town, head to the Scape Goat, where domestic bottles and tall-boy cans start at only $5. Patrons working in the service industry get their own selection of even cheaper drinks, such as $3 Jameson shots and $3 beers all day. Whether you're looking for a few brews or tasty cocktails, the Scape Goat offers wallet-friendly alcoholic beverages no matter what time you visit. 100 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 786-275-6488;
