Wynwood Bars | Best Bars in Wynwood Miami

There is no lack of fun bars in Miami but the Wynwood district is where it is all happening. Wynwood is the world – famous for its colorful murals, the best street artists, fabulous craft breweries in converted warehouses, funky art galleries, quirky clothes boutiques and, of course, hip and trendy Wynwood bars.

If you are hanging out in Wynwood and feasting your eyes and your soul on so much art, you will eventually get thirsty and hungry. Here are some of the most popular Wynwood bars, bistros and lounges where the hip crowd hangs out.

A large orange box promisingair conditioning, cold beer and cocktails” does not inspire confidence if you are out for some good fun in Wynwood. And Wynwood invented good fun. Have faith. Gramps is the king of the Wynwood bar scene and has earned a reputation as one of the best outdoor music venues in Miami.

Gramps has three distinct areas: The main room with a long bar, cozy booths, and vintage arcade games. Smaller, intimate Shirley’s is the venue for smaller shows. A spacious patio, with a covered dance floor, one more bar, and a pizza stand is where they have big shows. And big shows they have, with a nightly roster of great musicians.

Music is not all that is happening at Gramps. They have trivia, bingo, movie nights, comedy acts, alligator wrestling and who knows what will they come up with next.

If all that is not enough, come on Thursday. They call it Double Stubble, the bar’s big dance party and drag show.

To call the atmosphere quirky would be an understatement. Mismatched furniture, a bunch of vintage but very popular video games, and an outrageous outdoor tiki bar are the backgrounds to what you came for: great live music and plenty to drink. And they have whatever your heart desires.

There is just about anything to drink you can imagine: PBR by the can, local beers from Cigar City Brewing and Funky Buddha by the pint, sparkly wines, sake on tap, and funky creative cocktails.

You will not starve at Gramps. Pizza Tropical, located in the main room, offers Brooklyn-style pizzas, considered among the best in town.

The Sylvester

The regulars say that if you have to be stuck somewhere during a hurricane, The Sylvester is probably your best bet. This popular bar is not ashamed of its Florida vibe – pink flamingoes wallpaper is in your eye. But the place is cozy, the seating is very comfortable and the table lamps create the atmosphere of a posh club.

If you are not into shots, skip this hot Wynwood nightspot. Because shots are their world. All sorts of shots and tomorrow they will come up with the new ones.

Shots Miami is considered a hot, trendy bar for more than its shots. It is lively, colorful and hopping on most nights. There is indoor and outdoor space with an open dance floor and fun décor such as colorful umbrellas hanging from the ceiling. A lot of seating places but you have  to grab them in time. Murals everywhere make sure you do not forget you are in a Wynwood bar.

Music varies from day to day. On weekdays and Sundays the beat is Latin. On the weekends it is Latin in the inside bar and diverse outside. Thursdays and Sundays expect a Caribbean party.

The multiple bars both indoors and outdoors make sure you can get your shots without having to wait too long.

Wynwood Smoke and Lounge

Not everyone considers dancing a sufficient requirement for a fun night out. Wynwood Smoke and Lounge offers that something extra. This popular hookah bar and lounge is located in the heart of Wynwood. It offers a pleasant, relaxing space indoor and outdoor to hook yourself to some hookah or grab a good cigar.

You get your beer, wine and cheese, pay for them at the counter and find yourself a cozy spot to enjoy the music. Choose a comfortable vintage sofa or grab one of the mismatched chairs and park it on the lawn under the stars. Twinkling lights make the atmosphere magical.

They have 150 kinds of bottled wine in their cooler. Expect to find some wonders. There are wines from everywhere, including France and Spain.

To go with the wine, try their Italian cured meat and cheese platters, they are fabulous.

Wynwood Bars Outdoor

No. 3 Social

One of the most popular rooftop bars in Miami, No. 3 is as wonderful spot for brunch with their unlimited mimosas, just as it is at night under the starry sky.  Lush tropical plants and very elegant and comfortable furniture make it a great place to invite friends or even mother-in-law for brunch.

The imaginative cocktails are memorable – try their famous “Fly Me to Tulum.” Food is worth mentioning too, with Chef Ari Taymor treating his guests with delights like pork bao buns, sliders and other shareable bites.

No.3 Social was voted BEST outdoor music venue by Time Out. Live music and superb DJs will get you dancing all night long to the tunes of Global Disco, Spinning House, Old School and Afro tech sounds. Add to that magical twinkling lights, the view of the Wynwood spread below you and the open sky full of stars, it is the recipe for a perfect night out.

Wynwood Bars Open Late


If you are discovering the Wynwood bar scene for the first time, start with Rácket.  This upscale bar, lounge and nightlife entertainment spot is elegant, enormous and fun.

The roster of live music groups makes it a hotspot for the weekend crowd. Here you can meet just about anyone: tourists, office workers having a few cocktails after work, town fashionistas and of course the local art crowd.

Racket has three distinct rooms with a very different ambiance. As you enter, you will first see a covered atrium with a rum and tequila bar. As you venture further in you will get to the main room with a central sky-lit and steel island bar where you should sample

Racket has a range of seasonal imaginative craft cocktails and a good selection of local beers. The cocktail list starts with your regular Moscow Mules and Whiskey Sours, but does not end there. There are about 20 house cocktails you can explore all night.

Further in, a staircase will take you to another bar with yet another different vibe.

The food is not your average bar grub. They are too fancy for that. Try their ahi tuna rolls, truffle salt chips, and wagyu sliders.

The bar and lounge, the main room, has a pool table, a few arcade games, a jukebox and projectors showing music videos, NFL and MLB games, and your other favorite sports.

The DJs play hip-hop and open-format music, but there is a rich program of live music performances. You have to check their website or Facebook page to see what is coming.

Racket is hopping until 3 am from Wednesday to Sunday.
