Ball & Chain


1513 SW 8th St, Miami
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

This historic Calle Ocho bar is that rare place that appeals to both born and raised Miamians and sunburnt families piling out of tour buses. Locals go for the great live music, drinks, and the promise of no cover charge, ever. The tourists go to drink mojitos, smoke cigars, and (after three said mojitos) salsa like a newborn giraffe. Both sides somehow manage to peacefully coexist, perhaps thanks to the calming effect of Ball & Chain’s back patio, which is especially nice at sunset. Once night falls, this place turns up with very-hard-to-talk-over music and blasts of confetti - so maybe stick to day drinking here if that’s not your beat.
