At the corner of Indian Creek and 28th Street, tucked away behind the Roman & Williams–designed Freehand Hotel (a reimagining of a historic Art Deco building), you’ll find the most charming bar in Miami. There’s a romantic, finished tiki-like space at the entrance, lined with vintage wallpaper and wood paneling. Beyond it, a brick patio sits in the middle of a tropical forest of plants and leaning trees, outfitted with mix-and-match chaise lounges and wicker chairs, strings of white lights crisscrossing overhead. A pool completes the feeling of the Instagram-worthy backyard you want to linger in all day. It’s not all adorable ambience, though—the drinks, which change by month and season, are great. Last time we were in town we had a vodka concoction with ginger, carrot, sage, and citrus (for starters), but the daily punch is a go-to for some regular patrons.
