9 Classy Miami Happy Hours That Aren’t Crawling with College Bros

We love a reasonably priced cocktail, but we also prefer to enjoy our post-work hours sans rowdy college kids. Here are nine classy Miami happy hours for the grown woman you are—because being a grown-up means drinking $6 frosé, right?

‘Top Chef’ Power Couple Janine Booth and Jeff McInnis’s Favorite Things to Cook at Home

800° Woodfired Kitchen

1. 800° Woodfired Kitchen

You know 800° Woodfired Kitchen as the Dwyane Wade– and Udonis Haslem–owned spot with killer pizza and roasted cauliflower. But did you know this restaurant also hosts Aventura’s best happy hour? Whether you work or live in the City of Excellence, take a short detour after you clock out for discounted prime rib French dip and $6 wines by the glass.

2956 NE 199th St., Aventura; 305-902-4363 or

Le Jardinier

2. Le Jardinier

You’re not in the mood for a sit-down dinner, but you’re looking for a step up from the usual happy hour. That’s where the swanky Le Jardinier in the Design District comes in. Sip $9 wines paired with spicy carrot hummus and Maine lobster rolls.

151 NE 41st st., Miami; 305-402-9060 or

Bulla Gastrobar

3. Bulla Gastrobar

Looking for a happy hour spot in Doral? Bulla Gastrobar fits the bill with its $6 cocktails and half-priced wine, sangria and beer—every day from 5 to 7 p.m. If you’re close to Coral Gables, there’s a location there too.

Various locations;
