7 Killer Miami Spots For Late-Night Eats
August 14, 2018admin
The search for a perfect meal is endless. It’s also entirely personal. What constitutes a dish that’ll keep you wishing for more? Is it a mix of atmosphere and flavor? Or even the rush of excitement knowing that you’ve stumbled upon a little-known secret? Either way, we like to reserve the delicious eats, those oozing with comforting goodness for the late nights. You know, those that keep you out and about among Miami’s streets until the wee hours of the morning. When you next find yourself on such an adventure, here are our favorite spots to hit those late night cravings.
An absolute Miami classic. This neighborhood, family-friendly outpost on the cusp of Coconut Grove has been slinging some of the cheesiest slices for years. It’s a post-football game tradition, especially when you’re munching on samples while you wait for your order. Whether you’re heading there for slices the size of your face, or their fresh-grilled wings, it’ll turn into a regular outing instantly.
Open until 2AM Mon – Thurs, 5AM Fri & Sat, 1AM Sun.
Derived from the idea of creating a welcoming space for industry members, Employees Only is a place where even the hardest working night owls can grab a drink or eat a quick bite before getting some much needed shut-eye. The NYC speakeasy has a Miami Beach home inside, well, an actual 1920s house so the atmosphere is perfect for late night adventures.
Open until 5AM 7 days a week.
Okay, we know The Corner is a go-to late night cocktail joint, but did you know it boasts some of the yummiest eats in the city? Their food menu is insanely good. We like blowing people’s minds by bringing them here during the day, but it’s that late night hang that blows us away. Intermingled with existential conversations are grilled cheeses, Mediterranean dips, house-made chips, hotdogs and more.
Open until 5AM Sun-Thurs, 8AM Fri & Sat.
Mary’s Coin Laundry
Going to this ventanita and coin laundry is a right of passage for anyone who calls themselves a Miami local. It’s not just a cafe serving up Cuban classics like pan con bistec or papas rellenas, it’s also the most low-key spot on this list. You’ll find a vibrant mix of people heading here at all hours of the night craving their batidos and sandwiches just as good as anywhere else in the city.
Open 24 hours. Every. Night.
Ah yes. There’s noting like a good late night taco. Or quesadilla. Or nachos. Okay, just late night Mexican food in general. For anyone of us who frequented College Nights in the Grove or Whiskey Wednesdays, you remember this tiny outpost. It’s a no-frills walk-up window sauteeing and mixing up deliciousness deep into the night, especially on the weekends. Head to their Coconut Grove pop-up or the OG home base in Little Havana.
Open 10PM/11PM Sun – Thurs, 3AM/2AM Fri, 12AM/2AM Sun.
Artichoke Basille’s Pizza
This NYC favorite got the whole city in a tizzy when they announced they’d open up a branch down here. Before you roll your eyes at this obvious choice for a guilty meal, there’s a reason why the pizza chain has such a powerful rep. Their slices are consistent at every outpost, no matter where in the country you are. And there’s nowhere in the world where you can get a piece as creamy and delicious as their classic Artichoke slice.
Open until 5AM seven days a week. They deliver until 4:30AM too.
Many of us know this South Beach bar for its stellar cocktails and epic weekend parties, but we’ve already raved about its happy hour steals. It’s a respite from your usual beach bars and clubs, a portal into vintage vibes and all the things we love about this city. We must admit though that we come back for their cauliflower nachos and chicken wings, as well as a well-made drink of course.
Open until 5AM every night.
