Miami’s TOP 5 Happy Hours

Looking for the best place to enjoy the best time of the day - HAPPY HOUR?!?

The Miami New Times broke it down for you!

Here are the top 5 places in Miami for Happy Hour.

1. Beaker & Gray
Five bucks gets you premium booze and food at this lively Wynwood spot, making it the best happy-hour deal in Miami. The happy-hour drink menu, curated by partner/barman Ben Potts, includes a Moscow mule with Stolichnaya gold, a daiquiri with Flor de Caña 4-Year, an Old Forrester old-fashioned, a margarita with Maestro Dobel, and a proper Beefeater Tom Collins. Select wines and beers are also available for $5 each. Five-dollar snacks include croquetas, a mofongo cake, assorted olives, a ham-and-cheese sammy, and a chip 'n' dip plate. The offer is good Monday through Friday from 4  to 7 p.m. Night owls get a bonus round, because happy hour repeats Monday through Thursday from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m.

2. NaiYaRa
If you're bad at math, Chef Bee's NaiYaRa has the easiest way to keep up with happy-hour prices: every item cost $7. From 5 to 7 p.m. every day (including Saturday and Sunday), the bar at NaiYaRa offers a host of food and drink items for $7 each. Cocktails include the Tom Kha-Piña, made with Ilegal mezcal, charred pineapple shrub, lemongrass, and cilantro; the Stone Sour Jerk, made with jerky-infused Redemption rye, ginger-lemon bitters, and lime; and a refreshing Kai-Piroska, with Kai lychee, crème de cassis, and Prosecco. Pinot Noir-based sangria, Sapporo beer, and wines by the glass are also available. Food offerings include whitefish tacos made with fresh catch of the day and topped with mango, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, avocado, and yuzu; Thai guacamole; chicken wings seasoned with lemongrass, kaffir lime, and coriander; grilled shrimp skewers served with a jimtalay sauce for dipping; and pork skewers.

3. Rusty Pelican
We know, we know. You go to the Rusty Pelican for Mother's Day and birthdays, but why, oh why, don't you take advantage of its amazing weekday happy hour? Every Monday through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m., the lounge at the Pelican offers some of the best deals in Miami — with arguably the best view in South Florida. Sip $3 beers, $5 well drinks (including martinis, mojitos, and margaritas), $5 house wines, and $7 specialty drinks (including strawberry mule, Pelican caipirinha, Rusty Spice, and Agave Sunset) and wines as you watch fish frolicking. Eye the boats sailing in Biscayne Bay while you chow down on ahi tacos ($8), Rusty sliders ($6), corvina ceviche ($8), fried calamari with citrus buffalo sauce ($10), and other delectables.

4. Doraku
A Miami Beach standard-bearer of happy-hour specials, Doraku continues to show us the way to happy-hour heaven. Every day at exactly 5 p.m., every seat in the house mysteriously fills as beachgoers, office dwellers, and deal seekers flock for $4 sake and $5 California rolls. And it doesn't stop there. Edamame ($3), lychee martinis ($6), ahi poke ($6), and tuna tataki ($7) are some other deals to be had. Happy hour is served daily from 5 to 7 p.m. (but get there early to snag a seat).

5. Sarsaparilla Club
Monday through Friday, head to Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth's happy hour for dim sum at their new Sarsaparilla Club, inside the Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach. From 5 to 7:30 p.m., play beat the clock as prices increase as the night wears on. For instance, when the restaurant opens at 5 p.m., dim sum items such as carrot and beet tartare, pork dumplings, and drunken deviled eggs are $5. At 6 p.m., the price increases to $6, etc. The same goes for draft beers, wines by the glass, and cocktails made with house-made sarsaparilla soda.
