[ 0 ] July 14, 2011 | SunPost

 

TOP TEN BARS

Mac’s Club Deuce: 222 14th Street Miami Beach (305) 531-6200

They don’t make ‘em like Mac anymore. They can’t. Because that kinda old world moxie just isn’t done. Consequently there will never be another like his Club Deuce. Refuge to outlaws and drag queens, gadflies and go-go girls, The Deuce is Miami Beach’s true melting pot. And like all of our town’s melting pots, it’s brimmed with spirits and best sipped in the wee small hours of the morning.

Tobacco Road: 626 South Miami Avenue Miami (305) 374-1198

TOP TEN POOL BARS

Arkadia: The Fontainebleau 4441 Collins Ave (305) 674-4690

The regally refurbished Fontainebleau may have more distractions than any adult can fathom, but it’s latest threatens to drive all of ‘em to drink long tall cocktails until the looking glass is empty. Frolic is a large part of the distraction’s attraction, as is a setting that’s straight from a hedonist’s storybook. Whatever it is, this pool bar may leave you soaked, yet you’ll never feel all wet.

Plunge The Gansevoort 2377 Collins Ave Miami Beach (305) 604-1000

TOP TEN BEER BARS

Zeke’s Road House 625 Lincoln Rd Miami Beach (305) 672-3118

That Zeke’s keeps things both abundant and cheap is a wonder in itself. That it does so smack in the center of Lincoln Road, makes it positively wonderful. Known since day one as the locals’ favorite, it remains just that, despite the pesky tourists who glide right on by. So long as those visitors keep on gliding, Zeke’s will continue to be our place to be who we are.

TOP TEN LOUNGES

Gemma Lounge 529 Lincoln Rd Miami Beach (305) 534-3662

The only lounge with a view of Lincoln Road, and known to the many few who still prefer South Beach on their own terms, Gemma continues to exist in a cosmos of its singular creation. Now that it’s added a Road-side setup, we can mix it up front and center too. But it’s the hovering above it all that will remain Gemma’s claim to fame, no matter how down and dirty things get below.

TOP TEN PLACES FOR LIVE MUSIC

The Fillmore Gleason 1700 Washington Ave Miami Beach (305) 673-7300

To say that the house that Jackie built is a temple, is kinda like saying Gleason was a star. True, yes, but unnecessary. Of course staging everyone from Black Keys to Caetano Veloso helps enshrine the joint. So do the devout who keep it so smoothly running. For a place to worship what the world has to aurally offer, there is none better.
