There are not a lot of casual bars in Brickell. But Better Days is a good one to have on your radar in case you find yourself in Miami's financial district and aren't wearing pants or don't feel like spending $25 on a cocktail. Or both of those things. Either way, Better Days is going to be a good option. The cozy bar isn't a fancy cocktail spot. It feels more like hanging out in a friend's basement than a Brickell bar. It can still get a little cramped and crowded on the weekend, but, if you're in Brickell, we assume you've already accepted that reality.
