Generator is a hostel in Mid-Beach with a great restaurant called The Jim and Neesie and a pool bar that’s good for lunch. It won’t be the cheapest - their burger is $16 - but that’s still much better than any of the surrounding hotel restaurants. The food is good and eclectic, with everything from oysters and octopus a la plancha, to a wagyu sandwich and great cocktails - including a bunch of frozen drinks. And if you order lunch, you also get access to the hostel’s pool, which is small but cute, much like the Generator itself.

Broken Shaker

Broken Shaker in Mid-Beach is where to go for drinks on a tree-lined patio by a pool and to get away from the nearby clubs.
