Going to Miami for Spring Break

Hi everyone,

I am going to Miami for spring break with a few friends. We are college kids very much into the restaurant scene and appreciate good restaurants and bars. We would like to keep spending down but are willing to splurge if the food is worth it. Any recommendations for restaurants, bars, clubs etc... any help is greatly appreciated.

      Hop on free or the SoBe local bus for 25 cents to get to the west side of town and Burger/Beer and the Purdy Lounge.

      TP -

      On your advice we tried Keeses and had a great lunch of lamb kebab sandwiches and Greek salads! Thanks so much for the tip. Noticed that Cerveceria 100 Montaditos is opening right next door to 5 Guys - smart move!

      Can't wait for $1 beers on South Beach...


      Purdy Lounge
      1811 Purdy Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139

    2. just got back from south beach

      i would defintley hit up Tap Tap in south beach for some great mojito's they have a good happy hour price - after that $1 beers will go down very smooth :)
