If you're like most people, you probably avoid looking at your bank account after a midweek happy hour or weekend night on the town. No one wants to deal with that negativity after having a fun time, but what if you didn't have to deal with it quite so much? Everyone knows that the cost of living in Miami is high, but we don't think about the cost of going out that often. Expensive drinks are just one of the things people accept as part of the package when living in the Magic City, but we say you shouldn't have to accept it, so we're cluing you in on the best Miami bars with cheap drinks.

Blackbird Ordinary

Brickell is hailed as one of Miami's premier hangout spots, and it's also known as one of the areas with the highest drink prices. That is, unless you pay a visit to Blackbird Ordinary, a dive bar that's an underrated party and live music spot. Thankfully, Blackbird's drink menu aligns closer to its divey inclinations than its party atmosphere, so feel free to grab an extra drink!
