Looking for a great bar in Miami to celebrate
My step dad is turning 50 and I have been tasked with finding a great bar to hold a happy hour for friends and co workers to celebrate. I'm trying to find a place that will accommodate everyone's tastes, but still meet my step dads standards. He and I are very much into the food scene, so sub par simply will not do. I have so many different places running through my head that picking a single place has become exhausting. This is why I'm reaching out to the Chow universe.
Comfortably accommodate 15 - 20 people.
Within Dade county and only on the mainland. Unfortunately, Miami Beach isn't an option.
The happy hour will be on a Friday.
Great bar food would be a plus
I was looking at db Bistro Moderne, Area 31, and Bourbon Steak as some possible choices, but I welcome any input.
re: Blind Mind
Bourbon Steak is my #1 choice by far, but I need the rest of the family to agree since this actually going to be a surprise and I know distance may be an issue.
Edge and Local are both good options that I'm heavily considering. Local is great, but like BM, I have not eaten there in a while. And I honestly wasn't that impressed with Edge;however, the bar was fantastic and the outdoor lounge area was really nice.
I really appreciate the input and welcome any further suggestions.
What about Eos, Zuma or Il Gabianno? I know Eos has a beautiful outdoor lounge area, as does Il Gabianno. I can't recall what Zuma's layout is like, but I believe it has a nice lounge with a nice view?
