Up until recently, the only people you’d find in Downtown Miami were those leaving a Heat game or an after-hours club. But now places like Mama Tried are finally overhauling the area. This new bar is equally great for a quiet Happy Hour or a big night out, depending on what time you get there. The wrap-around bars are sleek and completely redone, but they’ve kept the pool table from the previous bar. And with a good selection of beer and wine, and cocktails that are reasonably priced from $11-$13, it’s not surprising that someone suggested you meet up Downtown.
