You live in Brickell, so you obviously are a people person. 

You would not be living in the densest, most populous neighborhood in South Florida unless this was partly true.

Brickell is the corporate center of south Florida so there is a work-hard, play-hard vibe to it all, whereby a necessary, organic outgrowth is the neighborhood hangout. Drinks, happy hours, great food, people watching, music, loud conversations, are some of its necessary components.

I have lived in Brickell for 2 years, right in the center of it all, so if you want to know where your neighbors are socializing, networking, and catching a buzz, here are my 5 favorite local hangouts.

Top 5 Local Hangouts in Brickell


900 S Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33130

If you live in Brickell, you must know Moxie’s. 

You want to feel like you are in the epicenter of Brickell? 

Then Moxie's is it. 

Moxie's has great food, drinks, and the coolest staff, who you will end up being best friends with after a while. 

 Sit outdoors, grab a Fusion Old Fashion, the Kale and Quinoa Salad with Salmon (my favorite ), and watch the neighborhood parade go by. 

Happy Hour - Monday to Friday from 3:00 to 6:00

2) Dolores But You Can Call Me Lolita /SoCal Cantina

1000 S Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33130

A Brickell institution since 2007, Lolita is one of the oldest yet thriving hangouts in Brickell. 

A former Fire Station, they merged their outdoor space with Socal Cantina, to create one of the largest outdoor areas on South Miami Avenue.

 Why is the left side of the venue packed? 

Oh - It’s Taco Tuesdays at SoCal. 

Why is the right side packed today? 

Damn - It's Happy Hour at Lolita.  

An abundance of great energy and fun either way. 

Wine is priced daily at $8.99 a glass and $28.99 a bottle, as well. 

3) Friend’s Market and Bistro

31 SE 6th Street, Miami, FL 33131

Welcome to the equivalent of the neighborhood’s Central Perk. 

Everything from great coffee, breakfast, smoothies, burgers, pizza, wine, beer, and more. 

Kind of like the old school neighborhood diner all to be enjoyed with your neighbors, on a huge outdoor patio.

You can shop for groceries there as well. 

Friend’s is always buzzing from morning to night. 

Say hello to Chandler, Phoebe, and the gang for me, if they happen to be there.

4) Baby Jane

500 Brickell Ave, Miami, FL 33131 

Every time I walk by the outdoor patio at Baby Jane, I either go in or feel bad that I couldn’t go in. 

The music is pumping, the tables are full of life, and the drinks are amazing. 

A Brooklyn ambiance, right here in Brickell, in one of the coolest spots in town.  

Try the Ramen, one of their specialties, from the Asian-themed menu

Daily Happy Hour from 5:00 - 7:00.

5) 8 Street Brickell

88 SW 8th St, Miami, FL 33130 

You’re at one of the above hangouts and you need a place with more of a late-night vibe? 

Then 8 Street Brickell is the place. 

 8 Street is cozy, sexy and fun with great DJ s that spin amazing trance,  house, and hip hop.  

If you are looking for an upscale, chic, party crowd, yet still qualifying as neighborhoody, 8 Street is a great venue to check out.  

Happy Hour, Monday - Friday, from 5:00 - 8:00.
