I popped in for karaoke while on a business trip and I'm soo glad I did. The bartenders were friendly. The crowd was a lot of fun. The atmosphere was chill. If I ever find myself in miami again I will be here for sure.

This place rocks when Just Gio is DJ/VJ-ing! I love how he hooks up TVs with the music videos, it really sets the vibe! The place itself is really cool, decorated all the way to the ceiling! Drinks are good and priced fairly - shout out to the bartenders!!!

This little bar just off Collins Ave has the best god dam music playing every time we go there. And we go there a couple times every year after ultra music festival and Mismi music week. Sound system is banging. DJ’a off the hook. Drinks are good value. Staff are cool. Crowd here are great.

Entertaining dive bar with interesting decor.The Draft beer selection consisted of one offering which wasn't recommended. Service was friendly and a good selection of well drinks available.

Best low key bar, slightly separated from the main area of Española way. The bar tender Karlos lives up to his reputation, made everyone in our group laugh and knows how to make a great drink. Overall loved the atmosphere of the place and there are plenty of places to sit and stand even for the size of the place. I cannot wait to come back for karaoke night

Cool dive bar next to a sports bar in South Beach. The music wasn’t my vibe but I appreciate that the have local performers. Ladies night on Wednesday so it’s a good excuse to get out.

The place is the best! I loved from the music to the bartenders, but there was a dog clearly suffering for the noise and the place ~ if dog owners are so dumb to bring dogs to those places, managers should bring it to their attention…

What happened to Friday’s Drag Night? This was a great way to start my South Beach weekend, but we walked in and no show and the bar was pretty empty. We had one drink and left, we saw a few others do the same. New owners? 🙁
23:26 04 Mar 23
We had such a great time! They had some great rock bands, and the place was packed. It was such a good vibe. The bartenders were fabulous. The drinks were delicious. They were pricey, but that's the norm on Miami Beach. Parking can be a challenge, but we will definitely be back!

I went to this bar last night. I think it would’ve been better if I didn’t open a tab. After ordering our first round of drinks I asked the bar tender if I could open a tab. He took my credit card. Nothing uncommon. When I went to close the tab he claimed he gave my credit card back to me. Then belittled me and treated me like I was stupid. He said “I’m not the one who has been drinking you are”. He claimed he only had one card with a tab and it wasn’t mine. Once he could see I was coherent and not backing down that he had my card it appeared out of thin air. I just wonder how many people come in and get their card stolen from this guy when they’re intoxicated. The take away from this. If you go here make sure you don’t open a tab.

One of the best karaoke nights I’ve been to. The KJ and the staff are incredibly friendly, the drinks were decently priced. The vibe is a little hole in the wall I’m the best way possible.

Small but FUN! The performers are good, but the decor and the bartender, Carloz, will blow your mind! He is the king/queen of multi-tasking! Sit tight honey, even though he doubles as the show host, you will get your drink fast. It was fun just watching him. His wit cuts like a well sharpened knife. You can't tip him enough, he's worth so much more! Don't miss this FABULOUS bar!

We ended up in this bar by accident and I’m so glad we did! It’s a dive bar but I definitely loved the atmosphere and the music. Karloz, the bartender made us delicious drinks especially his Bloody Mary’s. He was such a vibe that we ended up coming to the bar again the following night.

If you are looking for a bar with a fun, playful, funky vibe. This is everywhere you want to be. A few friends & I stopped in here late during "Happy Hour". They had $3 beers! You really can't beat that. The decor is very eclectic! You will enjoy looking at everything. The band they had in that evening was absolutely great & kept the joint jumping. Definitely recommend a stop here!
