Rhythm & Vine | Fort Lauderdale
“Not too many places quite like Rhythm and Vine! The lively outdoor section where you can mix and mingle and get some great service from both the drink side and the food trucks or even just play some of the group games are things you can’t pass up. Then you have the inside where you can relax on those comfortable couches and sofas or just bust a move on the dance floor to the DJ, it’s all an experience you have to try for yourself!” – Google Review
Three x Social | Miami
“Delicious. The food, wow! The atmosphere, wow! The experience, wow. Great rooftop view. This is a must if you are in Wynwood. Be mindful and make a reservation. They offer brunch, happy hour, dinner and happiest hour. Each menu is unique. I went for brunch and will definitely go back. Three & No. 3 Social is a place you brag about. Enjoy.” – Google Review
McSorley’s Beach Pub | Fort Lauderdale
c. 1949 | Tampa
“This is one of the best bars in Tampa. They really live up to the “Florida Beer Garden” part of their name: it is super rare to see a non-Florida beer on their draft list. It’s always a chill vibe and hanging out on the patio is great, especially when the weather is nice. The bartenders are very knowledgeable of the craft beer scene across Tampa Bay and Florida and can answer any questions you may have about the beer. The do special music events regularly and there is also always a food truck of some kind. And if you’re not a fan of craft beer? They’ve got some stuff like Bud light in the bottle. It’s really just the perfect spot to grab a drink.” – Google Review
