The city of Miami sits in the southern part of the state of Florida. It’s one of America’s major cities, with one of the nation’s tallest skylines. Miami is a major hub for international tourists, coming in second just after New York City. So what does Miami have to offer its visitors? Well, there’s a little something for everyone. Are you a culture buff? A stop at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts is a good idea. There you can catch an opera, ballet, or concert. If you like art, head to the Frost Art Museum. And a tour of the city’s culinary options is a must, as it reflects Miami’s diversity. The Versailles Restaurant is located in Little Havana and is a Miami institution—the perfect place to enjoy a Cuban meal. And of course, with its tropical weather and spot on the Atlantic, Miami offers plenty of beaches and water-based activities. And if you’re a music lover, then you’re in luck, because we’ve put together some of the best piano bars that Miami has to offer. So keep on reading to check out the options.

We’ll start our list off with Christy’s Restaurant, a steak house that’s been a staple in Miami for more than 40 years.

We definitely recommend saving room for dessert and indulging in the baked Alaska for two. It’s got excellent reviews, with visitors raving about the food as well as the old school, upscale ambiance. And of course, you’ll want to catch the music coming from the piano bar. Make sure your reservation is for a Friday evening, and you’ll hear jazz music playing while you dine.
