Pretty Swell is a cocktail bar and restaurant inside the South of Fifth Life House, a chill boutique hotel. This spot is a lot more intimate than most South Beach hotel bars. It’s small, quiet enough to have a conversation, and there’s occasionally a musician strumming a guitar inside. There’s some outdoor seating in a pretty little alley as well as tables and sofas in the lobby where you can relax with a cocktail. This is more of a place to drink than eat, but they do serve lighter dishes like sun-dried tomato hummus, watermelon salad, and more. It closes at midnight, so it’s not much of a late-night spot but it’s a solid drinking option if you’ve got time to kill before a reservation in South Beach.
