Some locals boast that they don’t go out on a Saturday night but instead get up at the crack of dawn on a Sunday and go to the Deuce for the SoBe after-party at 8am, one of the coolest places to drink in Miami.
rnThe Deuce, as they fondly call it, is the authentic Miami dive of old – a relic of the day when cocaine and gunshot wounds were as common as sunburn on South Beach – and it is proud to admit it. The bar is not pretty, nor is the bartender; but that is its charm.
rnAll sorts of people drink at the Deuce. It’s a place where strippers and glamour models play each other at pool for their next shot of whisky. So if you don’t like the high-hooch club scene at Miami, put the olive back in your Martini, head towards the Deuce, order a beer and sit safe in the knowledge that you might end up talking to a transvestite, a Hollywood actor, or a lorry driver from Texas. The possibilities are endless.
