The E11even bar will give guests the best views of downtown. This is a bar and lounge, but later on at night it becomes a full on Miami nightclub located right at the top of the building. DJ’s, dancing, and drinks guarantee that you’ll party your face off. E11even is a pretty popular place, so much so that you might even see a celebrity or two.

High on top of the East Hotel is one the city’s best rooftop bars offering views far out across Biscayne Bay to the east and north to downtown.

A lush garden serves as a nice barrier between the building and lounge, so although you’ll be atop a tall building, you’ll feel like you’ve stumbled into a secret getaway.

On top of the Langford Hotel is the Pawn Broker, rated one of Miami’s best new bars. At this spectacular location, you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the city from right in the middle of downtown. It’s a mix of upscale cocktail lounge and hipster foodie experience. Many of their drinks come in cool containers with interesting flavor combinations that you may not have experienced before. An example would be the “Giggle Water,” a gin based drink that’s foamed up and served in a tiny bathtub. Yep, you read that correctly.
