Sip, swirl and learn a thing or two about top-notch rich reds, oaky whites and more at the best wine bars in Miami

The only place to go for a quality glass of vino is a wine bar. Miami, fortunately, is home to many more designated places than before—charming nooks where oenophiles can uncork new varietals, discover boutique labels and unwind with a rare vintage. More than basic watering holes, these Miami bars, as well as several of Miami’s best restaurants, offer the area’s die-hards plus those just graduating from the boxed stuff places to comfortably swirl and sip all sorts of varietals.
What is it? The Coconut Grove shop/restaurant (with a sister location in West Miami) sells affordable wines (we’re talking $7 for cava) and offers a menu of delicious tapas should you want to stay and taste there.
Why go? The words wine and happy go together like chorizo and rioja do at Happy Wine. Beyond its reds and hard-to-find Spanish labels, the shop is known for it’s crazy specials like it’s daily $5 happy hour (hours vary) and beat-the-clock pricing on champagne Sunday through Thursday.
Vinos in the Grove
What is it? Vinos in the Grove returns to the neighborhood with a new location on McFarlane Road, a larger patio and a fresh selection of wines by the glass and bottle.
Why go? Weekday happy hour runs from 5 to 7pm, featuring $6 glasses of tasty reds and crisp whites. And with more room outdoors, Fido can join you for a post-work drink.
