2 places where the rhythm is gonna get you in Miami
1) Ball & Chain
Hugely popular on Calle Ocho, especially on weekends, this historic bar was established in 1935 as a saloon, then as a nightclub featuring live jazz. Today it’s a mainstay that books acts ranging from Grammy-nominated headliners to salsa bands to DJs. Always colorful, always representative of Miami culture. No cover but often a wait; 21+.
2) The Cabaret South Beach
Don’t be surprised at this piano bar when your bartender or server takes the mic. Nearly every server here sings while delivering drinks called such whimsical names as ‘The Talking Melon’ and ‘The Bourbon Thief’. A full dinner menu and light bites are available. Live music Thursday to Sunday; no cover.
