We all know that Miami is well known for its amazing nightlife, with tons of clubs, bars, and resorts to keep you busy until all hours of the night. Of course, if you’re going to stay up late having a good time, you’re bound to get hungry. Fortunately, Miami is also filled with plenty of great restaurants that stay open late to accommodate all of the city’s partygoers. Here are seven great places to eat in Miami next time you work up a hunger late at night.
For a late-night meal that’s simple yet satisfying, head to La Sandwicherie, which has two locations, one on South Beach and one in the heart of downtown Miami. You won’t find anything too fancy on the menu, just good, hearty sandwiches and salads at fair prices. Both locations are open until at least 5 a.m. every night of the week, and both places guarantee you the chance to get a good meal before the sun comes up.
Just south of downtown Miami, you’ll find La Moon, a great Colombian restaurant that offers plenty of dishes that are perfect for filling your stomach late at night. La Moon has several delicious, fried appetizers, but if you’re seeking something more, they have a variety of fish, pasta, chicken, and pork dishes to fill you up. During the week, the restaurant closes at midnight, but on Friday and Saturday nights, La Moon stays open until 6 a.m.
If you want choices, Big Pink is the place to go, as it features over 200 items on its menu. Specialty burgers and wings are two of the things Big Pink does best, but it also serves breakfast all day, so you can get your hands on waffles and pancakes any time you want. It’s also received rave reviews for its large portions, so no matter how hungry you are when you walk in, you’ll leave full and satisfied. Big Pink is located in one of the busiest areas of South Beach, and Thursday through Saturday nights it stays open until 5:30 in the morning.
This place is not located in any of Miami’s hubs known for their nightlife, but if you’re looking for a nightcap and some great food, The Anderson is the place for you. Aside from classy and tasty cocktails, the food offered is high end, including queso, coconut shrimp, a patty melt, a vegetarian burrito, and a Japanese hot dog. If you’re looking for delicious food and one final drink at a place that stays open until 2 a.m. on weekends, you can’t do any better than The Anderson.
Taqueria El Carnal
If you find yourself on the outskirts of downtown Miami and craving tacos, the place to end up is Taqueria El Carnal. It looks like a hole in the wall, but it serves up some of the best tacos in Miami until 3 a.m. most nights and 5 a.m. on the weekends. For truly authentic Mexican food, this is the place to go, and it’s the perfect spot to satisfy a late-night hunger.
Pizza is always a great option for late-night eating, and Pizza Bar is the place to go to grab a quick slice or order a whole pie when you’re on South Beach in the early morning hours. Pizza Bar prides itself in having the largest slices in Miami, and that reputation is absolutely true. The pizza is quite tasty as well, and so are the wings, making Pizza Bar a no-brainer if that’s what you’re craving. Thursday through Saturday nights, Pizza bar is open until 5 a.m. and 2 a.m. every other night of the week.
Noodles are a notoriously great food for eating late at night, and in Miami Momi Ramen is the place to go. Most who have visited praise Momi Ramen for having the best ramen they’ve ever tasted, and it doesn’t hurt that it comes in substantial quantity as well. Seven days a week, Momi Ramen is open until 3 a.m., so no matter what day of the week you like to stay out late, if you like noodles, plan to end your night here.
August in Miami can be an overwhelmingly hot and humid time of year, so much so that it just makes you want to sit by the pool all day. But at the same time, August is part of an exciting summer that’s jam-packed with cool concerts and events that will inspire everyone to get up and do something fun. Here is a look at some of the awesome events happening in Miami over the next month.
Miami Spice, August 1 – September 30

The festival will include workshops where you can learn a variety of dances, including the Cha-Cha-Cha, Mambo, Rumba, and more. You can even learn the art of Bata drumming.

The festival is August 11 to 13 at the Koubek Center, just south of Little Havana.
Monster Jam, August 13-14

Between August 13 and 14, there are three performances at BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida, and ticket prices are as low as $20.
Ricky Martin Concert, August 27
Ricky Martin may not be the pop star he used to be, but he’s still a big deal in the Latino community of Miami, and anytime he performs in South Florida, it’s bound to be a memorable show. This concert is one night only at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, and it’s not a concert you’ll want to miss.
Drake Summer Sixteen Tour, August 30-31
There may be no better way to say goodbye to August than with a concert from one of today’s biggest stars. Drake is coming to Miami’s American Airlines Arena for back-to-back nights at the end of August, and with two shows there will be no excuse for missing him. Your best bet is to buy tickets as soon as you can, giving you something to look forward to all month.
Most people may come to Miami because they want to party on the beach, but the pool party scene on South Beach can be just as popular. Hotels go to great lengths to build the most attractive pools and create an atmosphere of fun and enjoyment. When it comes to partying by the pool, there are tons of great locations on South Beach, but here are seven locales that stand out above the rest.
Mondrian South Beach Hotel
On the west side of South Beach is the Mondrian, which is not only home to one of the best sunset views in Miami, but also has the perfect pool to host a party on the weekends. Saturday afternoons, you’ll enjoy the pool with fantastic house music in the background, while on Sunday you’ll get a combination of reggae and classic hip-hop, so take your pick on which day suits you better. If you’re not a guest, you’ll have to spend at least $50 on food and drink, but that’s a small price to pay for a day at such an exceptional pool with a great party atmosphere.
This upscale hostel gained notoriety on South Beach in large part because of its fun and unique pool parties. The décor and atmosphere is definitely different from what you’ll find at most 5-star Miami hotels, but the cocktails are among the best you’ll find in Miami Beach and the parties are fueled by the best DJs South Florida has to offer.
1 Hotel South Beach
It’s hard to go wrong with a rooftop pool, especially at 1 Hotel, where the pool is complemented by a great view, an outstanding bar, and music provided by some of Miami’s best DJs. The pool party at 1 Hotel may be a little more laid back than some of the others on South Beach, as the location of the hotel allows it to avoid some of the traffic and large crowds that sometimes plague Miami Beach, but that just makes this pool party more exclusive.
Even if you don’t step foot in the water at the Raleigh Hotel, the two-tiered pool is one of the most iconic on South Beach just to look at. The pool itself is shaped like a 1940’s era crest and sits adjacent to a vintage, old school diving board. The pool area is spacious with an array of luscious palm trees around the perimeter, providing shade and places to sit and relax. If you want to go to a pool party in a location that’s breathtakingly beautiful, the Raleigh Hotel is the place to go.
Located at the Dream Hotel on South Beach, Highbar is one of the best hotel pools in Miami. It’s located on the roof of the hotel, meaning there are spectacular views of the ocean and the rest of South Beach. Highbar has also gained a reputation for being a place for some memorable parties over the years, so you never know when you’re going to be part of one. The pool itself is great, and the decorations around it are second to none. The best part is there is no cover charge for the general public, so everyone is free to come check it out.
The Surfcomber Hotel pool may be ground zero for the South Beach pool party scene. There are certain times of year where the parties by the pool just get out of control, but really any day of the week there’s a good chance there’ll be something special happening. Between the cabanas and the ocean-adjacent pool area, the Surfcomber Hotel pool has everything necessary for a memorable pool party.
Located at the SLS Hotel, Hyde Beach offers one of the most unique and innovative pools on South Beach. For starters, there is a 10-foot tall and 700-pound silver duck statue, which is the perfect complement to two pools that are designed to resemble a bathtub. It’s an amazing design, and for some reason it helps create an incredible party atmosphere at Hyde Beach, because there are plenty of people who keep coming back, knowing it’s one of the best party hot spots on South Beach.
Summer is in full swing on South Beach, and if you had fun on the 4th of July, you haven’t seen anything yet. The city of Miami has plenty of fun lined up for the month of July, making South Florida a great place to be. In addition to some of the great activities you can do in Miami on a daily basis, here are five awesome events you have to check out in July.
Miami Spa Month, All July and August
Miami is a great place to go to pamper yourself, so much so that the city’s spa month actually lasts for two full months. Anywhere you go on South Beach, there will be places where you can get all kinds of body scrubs, massages, facials, and more, so during the months of July and August, take advantage of it. There will be special deals and packages available at spas throughout Miami over the next two months, and you’d be foolish not to treat yourself to a day of getting pampered at one of Miami’s world-class spas.
Cirque Eloize Cirkopolis, July 7 – 31
If you enjoy truly unique forms of entertainment, you have to check out Cirque Eloize Cirkopolis, which will be at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts on Biscayne Boulevard for most of July. The show combines elements of dance, theater, and the circus to create a spectacular acrobatic display that will have your jaw on the floor. The reviews of the show have been fantastic, and this is definitely something you won’t want to miss.
Disney’s The Little Mermaid Makes A Splash on Stage, July 8 – August 7

You’ll get to hear all of your favorite songs that will guarantee that you start feeling nostalgic about the movie. Tickets are quite affordable, making it the perfect way to spend an evening with your family, hopefully exposing your kids to the wonder that is The Little Mermaid.
International Mango Festival, July 9 – 10
On the surface, this may not seem like one of the most exciting festivals there is, but if you’ve ever tasted a mango, you know that they’re one of the best tasting fruits in the world, and that’s a good enough reason to check out the International Mango Festival. There are plenty of activities and tastings happening at the festival, involving both mangos and other fruits. There will be plenty of entertainment for kids, so it’s an event the whole family can enjoy. The festival is being held at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Coral Gables, which is one of the largest and most picturesque parks in South Florida, meaning there’s very little downside to checking out the International Mango Festival.
Miami Spice Iron Fork Kick Off Event, July 28
If you consider yourself or foodie, or even if you just find yourself watching the Food Channel on a regular basis, this event is for you.

If that’s not enough, you’ll also be able to sample food from over 70 Miami area restaurants, giving you a good idea of where to eat the next time you go out. It’s a three-hour event and general admission tickets are just $45, and if you get there on time you can fit a lot of food and fun into those three hours.
The 4th of July is always a good excuse to party, and if you’re lucky enough to be spending Independence Day in a party city like Miami, you’re in for a treat. There is no shortage of locations in and around South Beach for you to you to eat, drink, party, and enjoy the fireworks. Here are a few of the great places you can go in Miami to watch the sky light up on the 4th of July.
America’s Birthday Bash at Bayfront Park
Bayfront Park is hosting one of Miami’s biggest Independence Day celebrations. The park opens at 10 a.m. if you want to get an early start, and the music at the amphitheater gets started at 2 p.m. In addition to the music, there’ll be plenty of food and drink available, as well as a Kids Zone for ages 2 to 16 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. The fireworks come your way at 9 p.m., and since the park is located right on the edge of the water, it’s bound to be one of the most spectacular fireworks shows you’ve ever seen.
Picnic and Fireworks at Peacock Park
If you want a more low-key 4th of July, especially if you have kids, Peacock Park may be your best option. There will be face painting, balloon animals, and free ice cream, all things that kids of all ages will enjoy (and perhaps some adults too). Visitors are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets to hold a picnic. Activities don’t start until 6 p.m., and fireworks at the water-adjacent park are scheduled for 9 p.m.
Miami Beach Fire on the Fourth Festival
This is an all-day celebration for the people who get really excited about the 4th of July. It’s free and takes place at North Beach Bandshell on Collins Ave. starting at 9 a.m. It begins, as all days in Miami should start, with yoga on the beach. If that’s not your jam, don’t worry, because the food trucks start showing up at 11 a.m., providing plenty of great culinary options for the special occasion. From noon until 5 p.m. there’ll be a DJ handling the entertainment, turning things over later in the evening to performances by Family Stone and Grand Funk Railroad. Finally, it all comes to a brilliant end with the fireworks show at 9 p.m., which can be seen while overlooking the ocean on North Miami Beach.
Key Biscayne 4th of July Parade and Fireworks
If you like parades, the place you want to be on Independence Day is Key Biscayne. The parade on Crandon Boulevard will feature marching bands, patriotic floats, jets flying overhead, and much more. Afterwards, you’re encouraged to spend the rest of the day exploring all that the island of Key Biscayne has to offer, including Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park and Crandon Park, two of the most picturesque parks in the city of Miami. Not only are those great places to have a picnic or barbeque on the 4th of July, but also if you stick around until 9 p.m., you’ll have great seats for the fireworks show that takes place right over the Atlantic Ocean.
Between the beach, the sound of crashing waves, and the bright lights of skyscrapers reflecting on the water, Miami Beach sure is romantic, especially at night. Fortunately, for young (and old) couples in love, the romance doesn’t end at the beach. South Beach is home to plenty of romantic restaurants that are perfect for you and your significant other to enjoy a special evening. Here is a look at 10 of the most romantic restaurants Miami Beach has to offer.
Red The Steakhouse
This place is the rare example of a steakhouse that can be romantic. The food is high-end, the service is excellent, and there is a great wine selection. Don’t bother going if you’re in a rush, but if you want to take your time and linger between drinks, dinner, and dessert while enjoying the ambiance, then this is the most romantic steakhouse you’ll ever visit.
Located in the Fontainebleau Hotel, this is the perfect spot for a couple that loves Chinese food. This restaurant knows how to create a romantic atmosphere, and the rooftop location ensures a romantic feeling once the sun goes down. The entrees are also among the best Chinese food you’ll find anywhere in Miami.
Also located in the Fontainebleau Hotel is Scarpetta, a great option for couples who love Italian food as much as each other. The dining room is elegant and guests are privy to a view of the ocean, so it’s not difficult to get swept up in romance while eating at Scarpetta. There are also plenty of tasty entrees and a great wine selection.
This restaurant has two dining locations, and both are romantic. Inside, you’ll find a sunken dining room and an aging but elegant chandelier setting the mood. Outside, you’ll have the pool, green plants, and some well orchestrated mood lighting creating the romantic vibe you desire. There’s also a world-class chef in the kitchen, so rest assured your meal will be delicious as well.
This place is the pinnacle of class, complete with a red carpet for guests to walk on upon entering. The dining area is spectacular with its gorgeous furniture and shelves stacked with books creating a cozy yet romantic atmosphere that makes you think you’re sitting in the home of your dreams. If you can’t afford to take your partner to the French Riviera, Villa Azur is the next best thing.
Romance can be difficult to find, and so can romantic restaurants like Casa Tua. If you can find this hidden Miami Beach gem, you’ll be treated to magnificent lighting created with lanterns and candles that will instantly put you in a romantic mood. Between the setting, the top-notch Italian food, and the excellent wine selection, you and your amour will want to stay at Casa Tua for hours.
This is a great place to bring a date no matter how long you’ve been together. The outdoor seating is amazing, as it’s filled with tress and gorgeous plant life, and the restaurant even has a retractable roof just in case you need it. You’ll come for the setting, but you’ll stay for the food, as Cecconi’s offers all of your favorite Italian dishes.
Juvia is a Lincoln Road hotspot and one of the most romantic spots on South Beach. The restaurant is located on the roof of a parking garage, which gives you an extraordinary view, and the ambiance the restaurant creates matches the view perfectly, especially in the evening. With a great menu and drink selection, it’s the perfect location for a couple celebrating a special occasion or just a couple trying to cap off a fun day the right way.
Pied a Terre
If you can get a table at this rather small restaurant, you won’t be disappointed with the intimate and romantic atmosphere. You’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a charming Parisian bistro, and between the food and the ambiance at Pied a Terre, it’s easy to be consumed and overwhelmed with romantic inclinations.
If wine is how you and your partner jumpstart your romance, then you must eat at The Forge and take a tour of their wine cellar. It’s the perfect way to begin a romantic evening, as the cellar is a cozy spot and the wine selection is out of this world. It’ll be hard to find a more delightful location, and the food won’t leave you disappointed either.
The summer heat is here, and that means it’s officially summer concert season. In terms of attracting high-profile musicians, the city of Miami is one of the best in the country. The city has plenty of great venues for live music and offers an enticing environment for top artists to perform. The month of June is loaded with great options for music lovers, and here are five concerts in Miami this month that you have to check out.
Ellie Goulding, June 3
What better way to kickoff a summer of great concerts than a Friday night performance from one of today’s hottest pop stars? Ellie Goulding is stopping off at American Airlines Arena in Miami for one night only as part of her Delirium World Tour. She’s fresh off her first Grammy nomination earlier this year and she has three albums worth of material to perform, including her latest hits: “On My Mind” and “Love Me Like You Do.” You can’t afford to miss out on an opportunity to see this British pop sensation at the height of her popularity.
Selena Gomez & DNCE, June 11
This show is another chance to spend a weekend night attending a great concert at American Airlines Arena, and it’s a double-bill no less. DNCE, the new band from Jonas Brother, Joe, is starting to make waves throughout the music industry, and now is the time to see them in concert. If that’s not enough, then surely you’ll come out to see headliner Selena Gomez. Her second album, Revival, already has three top-10 singles, as she begins her ascent to the top of the music industry. With all the acting that she does, who knows when Gomez is going to tour again, making her one of the marquee singers to see in concert this summer, an opportunity too good to pass up.
Weezer & Panic! At The Disco, June 14
An outdoor concert in Bayfront Park featuring two of the best rock bands of the past decade, it doesn’t get much better than that. Okay, technically, Weezer is one of the best bands of the past two decades, but they’re still going strong and the band’s last two albums have taken them back to their roots and been among the best they’ve produced to date. Weezer has so many hits that you can’t miss out on the chance to see them live, and adding Panic! At The Disco to the equation only sweetens the deal.
The Cure & The Twilight Sad, June 26-27
This show should bring together music fans old and young alike, and with two performances in Bayfront Park, there’s no reason to miss it. The Cure has been going strong for 40 years, an amazing accomplishment, and in concert they roll out hit after hit for your enjoyment. The Twilight Sad don’t quite have that much experience, but they bring plenty to the table, and in a way, they are the perfect musical complement to The Cure, making for a great concert.
Steely Dan & Steve Winwood, June 29
Even if you’re tired from enjoying all the other concerts in Miami this June, you should still make the short trip to West Palm Beach to cap off the month of June with Steely Dan and Steve Winwood. These are two acts that have been around forever and always put on a good show. Just sit back, relax in the open-air amphitheater, and enjoy two of the finest acts the music world has to offer; it’ll be the perfect way to finish off a month of amazing concerts.
May has arrived, and spring is in full swing, although in Miami it’s starting to feel a lot more like summer. With the warm weather here, there’s a lot going on in Miami all month long, with so many shows, events, and concerts that there’s bound to be something for everyone.

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, May 10 – 22
This wonderful musical tells the story of singer-songwriter Carole King, whom you have to thank for writing 118 Billboard Top 100 songs between 1955 and 1999. The show is upbeat, flashy, and includes many of the songs King wrote herself, as well as several other contemporary songs you may recognize. Between May 10 and 22 there will be 16 shows at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale. That’s plenty of opportunities to see it, so there’s no excuse for missing it.
Redland International Orchid Show, May 13 – 15
This is the largest orchid show in the country, so if you’re an orchid enthusiast or simply love seeing beautiful flowers, you have to check it out. For everyone else, it’s just a gorgeous setting to spend a day, taking place at Fruit & Spice Park down the road in Homestead. The park itself is a sight to see any day of the week, but on this particular weekend it will be filled with exotic flowers, expert speakers, and a raffle. If that’s not enough to get you out there, the Redland International Orchid Show will also have an international food court filled delicacies from all over the world. Oh, and tickets are only $10.
Miami Symphony Orchestra: Grand Season Finale, May 15
This will be the final show of the season for the Miami Symphony Orchestra, a musical ensemble you have to check out at least once.

The show is one night only; so don’t miss it! It’s at The Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami.
HAIR: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical, May 20 – 25
Surely everyone is familiar with Hair, and if you’ve ever had the desire to experience or re-live the days of the 1960s, this is the perfect way to do it. The songs will be both infectious and familiar and are guaranteed to take you back to another time, even if it’s just for a couple hours. There will be several performances to attend between May 20 and 25 at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach, just a short drive from Miami. Tickets are $45, and the show will be well worth the trip.
The food choices in Miami are as amazing and diverse as the city itself. But as exotic and intriguing as some of the restaurants in Miami are, sometimes you just want to keep things simple and grab a burger. Of course, in Miami, just wanting to grab a burger opens up a Pandora’s box of options for you. Here are four restaurants in Miami where you can find some of the most incredible burgers you’ve ever tasted.
Frankey’s Sports Bar
Located in Hallandale a little north of Miami, Frankey’s one of South Florida’s newest sports bars, but it’s quickly becoming one of its best. One reason for this is the Adena Burger, which uses beef raised on a family farm in the central Florida city of Ocala. The Adena is a thick and juicy burger with melted cheese, topped with lettuce, tomato, and onion. It sounds a bit simple, but with the quality of beef, the Adena Burger hits the spot.
On the outside, Bulldog BBQ looks like another innocuous restaurant in North Miami, but inside they are grilling up The Hot Mess, a work of art by barbecue great Howie Kleinberg. This burger is cooked with Certified Angus Beef, so you know you’re getting a quality piece of meat. Then it’s topped with bacon candy, roasted mushrooms, blue cheese, caramelized & crisp onions, and horseradish mayonnaise, just in case it needs a little extra kick. This is a burger that’s going to require two hands and your full attention to eat.
Located in Coral Gables, this restaurant has a secret burger, literally. The Local has an off-menu burger called The Secret Burger. It is massive and only meant for those South Florida natives who know where to find it; not that they’ll say no if a tourist comes in and asks for it. Just be warned, this is only for serious burger eaters. It starts with the bun, which is actually two Mc’Discos, which are made in house by pressing pimento cheese spread between a potato roll. The meat is a bacon and brisket blend, and it’s topped with fried onions, a house-made barbecue sauce, and a fried egg. Now you know why they try to keep it a secret.
In the heart of downtown Miami you’ll find a French bistro called db Bistro whose burger will shock you. It doesn’t have a fancy name (The Original db Burger), but many in Miami consider it the best burger in town. This burger doesn’t rely on fancy or elaborate toppings; instead, it’s a burger made of sirloin that’s stuffed with braised short rib, truffle, and foie gras. If you consider yourself a burger lover with a sharp pallet, you may have found the Holy Grail at db Bistro.
If you’re looking for a place in Miami where you can shop, eat, or just hang out for the day, look no further than Lincoln Road Mall. Located in the heart of South Beach, Lincoln Road Mall is an outdoor wall with blocks and blocks of shops, restaurants, bars, and other enjoyable ways to spend your time. You can walk up and down Lincoln Road all day and never run out of fun places to go, but here are places you must check out while at the Lincoln Road Mall.
Located on top of a parking garage, Juvia is a great place to relax after a day of walking up and down Lincoln Road. You’ll come for the view, but you’ll stay for the fine food and drink, as well as the ambiance. The open-air setting makes the vibe there fun and relaxing, just as one would expect on South Beach. The food combines influences from French, Japanese, and Peruvian cuisine, so the dishes and appetizers are much different from what you’ll find at any other place, and with a full bar, you’ll also be treated to some delicious cocktails.
HaVen is undoubtedly one of Miami’s top social hot spots. It’s part restaurant and part lounge, and features some of the best mixologists on South Beach, making it a perfect place to spend happy hour. However, it’s also part nightclub, with neon lights, a video wall, and great music, making it a place where you can hang out long into the night. Whether you want to sip a high-end cocktail, get your groove on dancing, or taste one of their many incredible appetizers, HaVen is a great place to check out, day or night.
The Colony Theater is one of Miami’s amazing Art Deco buildings, and not only is it an historic location that you have to see for yourself, but it’s also a great place to catch a show. The Colony Theater offers musical performances, operas, dance performances, and films, all taking place in a small, intimate venue that brings you up close and personal with some amazing performers and shows. You’ll have to do some planning, as the Colony doesn’t offer shows every day, but if there’s an intriguing show coming up, planning a day at the Lincoln Road Mall around a show at the Colony Theater sounds like a great idea.
If you want to grab a bite on Lincoln Road at a place that’s both casual and unbelievably delicious, you’ll want to stop at Huahua’s Taqueria. It’s located right on the edge of Lincoln Road, so there aren’t large crowds to fight, and you have the choice of eating either inside or outside. The service is usually quick, and whether you get a taco, burrito, or nachos, the food is incredible and will leave you wanting more. If you want lunch, dinner, or some late-night eating while on Lincoln Road, Huahua’s Taqueria is one of the best options available.
