Miami is the area to go to if you like various sporting events and activities. Because there are so many sports pubs in this city, you should have no trouble finding one that supports your preferred sporting organization. The following is a list of the five best sports bars in Miami for 2020.
30 SW 12th St., Miami
Featuring a sports bar, lounge, and restaurant, you can almost always catch an exciting crowd at Batch Gastropub at any time of the day. Far from your average bar food and beer taps, get a taste of delicious Mac Attack Mac & Cheese, BBQ Bison Burger, or truffle fries. Along with an extensive beer menu, enjoy some signature craft cocktails. Finally, don’t miss out on Happy Hour – a hot spot for locals after work.
University of Florida supporters may secure a table to watch the game — most with a keg at the table — at the designated gathering place for the Gator Club of Miami. It’s like going back to college, except better.
The people who invented the foot pedal for the restroom door were miles ahead of the viral-precaution curve. But Batch is about more than just fancy (and clean!) toilets; it’s also been the go-to spot for Brickellites to watch sports and meet other Brickellites during late-night decision-making hours for years. Batch’s durability may be attributed to its best-in-Miami cuisine, including a prime brisket burger, brick oven pizza, one of Miami’s greatest mac-and-cheeses, and a pecan-infused whiskey that can now be purchased by the bottle and taken home.
GRAILS SPORTS BAR
2800 N. Miami Ave., Miami
The first to hit Wynwood, Grails is no ordinary sports bar. With over 60 TV screens to catch any of your favorite teams, the venue sports a sneaker theme and has live music, art, and gourmet foods. The sports bar has seating indoors, under a covered patio, and outside when weather permits.
The sneaker-themed Grails offers everything you need for a fantastic game day, from daily beer deals to live music, delicious comfort food, and more than 60 TV screens. So gather around a television displaying the game of your choice and order a beverage delivered in a ceramic drinking jug shaped like a shoe. (There are enough monitors to display all of them.) There is room for around 70 people inside, 120 people on the covered terrace, and 100 people outdoors. The menu includes everything from pasture-raised chicken wings to black-truffle fries and Buffalo cauliflower.
If you’ve ever dreamed of drinking from a shoe-shaped mug while relaxing under the shadow of a $3,000 sneaker, consider this Valhalla. The self-professed sneakerheads behind the Cocktail Cartel have opened a sports bar in their image. The walls are adorned in collectible Jordans, Yeezys, and Back to the Future limited editions. The ceilings are dripping with big-screen TVs. The incredible back patio lets you enjoy a game in the pleasant South Florida weather while sipping your way through an impressive list of creations highlighted by the Satisfy Your Sole, a vodka, watermelon, and ginger concoction served in, you guessed it, a ceramic shoe.
MIKE’S AT VENETIA
555 NE 15th St. (ninth floor), Miami
If you’re looking for a more low-key, no-frills experience, check out Mike’s tucked away on the Venetian Causeway. Situated on the ninth floor, enjoy Miami’s beautiful breeze and views until 3 a.m. while you catch the games on over 20 TV sets while playing a game of pool.
Mike’s is another excellent place to watch NFL games, and a range of fans can be found here. Its specials are hard to beat and feature a beer selection with more than 18 taps for every taste and mood.
Every community needs a no-frills sports bar that serves high-quality meals at a reasonable price. Mike’s in Downtown Miami has one. This long-running institution has kept its local character for years, tucked in the Venetia condo complex at the foot of the Venetian Causeway. Take the elevator to the ninth level to see what it offers. The pub has more than 20 televisions, pool tables, daily specials, breezy Miami views, and the delight of discovering a true hidden treasure.
SHUCKERS WATERFRONT BAR & GRILL
1819 79THST CSWY. NORTH BAY VILLAGE
For a more traditional sports bar but with quite the view, check out Shuckers. Here you get breathtaking views of Biscayne Bay, with a beautiful outdoor seating patio. While watching your favorite teams play, enjoy raw lobsters, bacon cheeseburger, or their famous wings. Happy Hour features many great deals on beer pitchers and frozen drinks.
When you come inside Shuckers, the first thing you’ll notice is the stunning view of Biscayne Bay. The games that are televised on dozens of flat-screen displays follow. Order a dozen or three of the restaurant’s famed raw oysters, fresh fish fillets, chicken wings, or a bacon cheeseburger cooked with USDA Prime beef as your stomach starts to grumble. Happy Hour runs from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and includes $11 Bud Light pitchers, $6 okay drinks, $3 beers, $4 bottles, and $8 frozen cocktails.
Shuckers will host a varied crowd of football enthusiasts on Sundays, ranging from Cleveland Browns to Tampa Bay Buccaneers. So come at least 30 minutes early to get a TV. The deals change daily, and it doesn’t do the entire drink specials thing, but the waterside vistas are hard to top.
DUFFY’S SPORTS GRILL
3969 NE 163RDST. NORTH MIAMI BEACH
At Duffy’s, a South Florida staple for game day, you can catch any game you’re looking for on any one of the dozens of TVs anywhere you turn. Enjoy bar-food favorites and two-for-one drink specials poolside in a lively atmosphere while you cheer on your team. In addition, you can sometimes catch the resident DJ pumping hits, making it an even more enjoyable experience.
While Duffy’s sports bar empire has fewer empty seats on a Sunday than Sun Life Stadium, the best of the lot is this one on the Intracoastal in North Miami Beach. Duffy’s first Dade County location has a sprawling outdoor patio that you can boat right up to, plus a swimming pool, live DJ, and two-for-one drinks every day.
Being a sports bar in Miami, it’s not enough to have televisions that show the game. The food and drinks have to be as good as a play. So at Duffy’s Sports Grill, visitors flock to the place for its HD televisions while chowing down on the bar’s specialties – including their chicken wings with spicy Death Sauce. Then, they wash them down with one of their famed drinks.
