The Wharf is an outdoor bar on the Miami River that's just about always crowded. It feels closer to a day club than a chill happy hour spot, but it can be a good option if you're with a big, lively group who wants to drink. There are also food trucks here and stone crab claws from Garcia's during season. The Wharf does have a waterfront view, though it's certainly not the prettiest waterfront view in the city.
