Among the Maseratis and billion-dollar hotels you’ll find up and down South Beach is Mac’s. This is Miami’s best dive bar and has been the most reliable place to escape South Beach in South Beach for well over 50 years. It’s dark, charmingly grimey, has a two-for-one Happy Hour special from 7am-7pm daily, and feels like a place where they’d film an episode of Miami Vice - because they did. The neon sign that still hangs above the bar was installed by the television show’s crew. It really hasn’t changed much since then, and if you listen closely, you can still hear Don Johnson screaming, “Do you know who I am?!”
