The perfect birthday bar needs a few things: free entry and a decided lack of velvet ropes, music that makes you dance all night, classy drinks and a place to spread out.
In Miami, these bars have everything you need and more.
Recently named No. 22 on the World’s 50 Best Bars list, the Shaker has put Miami on the cocktail map with the city’s best handcrafted libations. In them: house syrups, elixirs and infusions with herbs plucked straight from their garden. Space is plentiful, with comfy couches and poolside lawn chairs. And should anyone get hungry, dive into doughnuts coated in spicy sugar and served with dulce de leche–coffee dipping sauce.
