Miami Beach isn’t just America’s nightclub capital. People actually work 9-to-5s here, too. And those people need happy hours.
Even those on a more nocturnal schedule can take advantage of late night happy hours. No matter if you’re the easy-to-please $2 beer type or the half-off-everything-behind-the-bar type, you’ll find plenty of budget-friendly sips on this list.
Night owl favorite Foxhole has revamped its happy hour. Now, in addition to taking 50 percent off everything behind the bar, you can also order $2 domestic and imported beer while munching on free popcorn. It all goes down from 5-9 p.m. daily.
Foxhole, 1218 14th Ct., Miami Beach
