Vinyl & Kai on the Happy Hour Hunt

Vinyl & Kai
1131 Washington Ave
Miami Beach

The Deal: Monday-Friday, 4 p.m.-7 p.m., half off drinks and appetizers. A second In the Biz happy hour kicks off at 2 a.m. - 4 a.m. with a pay stub or business card.

Drink specials include domestic beers for $2, imports for $2.50, and cocktails, margaritas, frozen drinks, shots, & wine by the glass for $4-$7. If you are looking for a V&K signature, go for the Dammit Janet, a shot of Jameson chased by pickle juice ($3.50 during happy hour). Yup, pickle juice. (Someone call Snooki!) Hold the sour face and just try it. Appetizer options range from $2.50-$3 and include the addicting Kumara Fries (sweet potato fries with cilantro sour cream), Lamb Ribs (with a sweet chili sauce), and BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders. For the after hour party people, V&K also serves breakfast all day.

Get a feel for the vibe after the jump.

Welcome to South Beach's new neighborhood bar. Located on Washington Avenue between 11th & 12th, Vinyl & Kai offers a casually hip but energetic environment for the happy hour hunter. Vinyl covers from bands like The Killers and Dashboard Confessional hang from the red and black walls, while four massive projector screens serve as a sports fan's dream. Guests can play pool by the bar, relax outside, or hang out post-happy hour for karaoke, poker, or live music (depending on the night). The music is loud, the people are fun, and the service is great. Stay long enough and one may catch themselves singing the actual Rocky Horror Picture Show tune or just yelling "Dammit Janet!" because they've had one too many of them.
