Lou's Beer Garden
Miami Beach, FL 33141
Miami New Times' Description
Hidden inside the New Hotel, Lou's Beer Garden is a hip, inviting place to kick back and relax. No need to dress up; just throw on some flip-flops and head to this North Beach gastropub. Diners looking for a restaurant will be surprised to find only a small bar in the hotel's courtyard. Tables surround the swimming pool, where hotel guests and beer enthusiasts hang out. Order from a selection of about 12 microbrews, including Chimay Triple, Rogue Dead Guy Ale, and Flying Dog Brewery's Raging Bitch. Start with crowd-favorite crispy sardines ($6.50) and then move on to one of proprietor Lou Ramirez's other tasty creations. Angry Shrimp ($8.95) - blackened and served with sweet-and-sour sauce - or squid stuffed with Manchego cheese, chorizo, herbs, and spices are solid accompaniments to the cold brew. Or try Lou's Beach Market Burger ($12.50), served with traditional condiments, lettuce, onions, bacon, and feta and American cheeses. Before you know it, you'll have made a few new friends and consumed one more beer than intended. And if you're there past midnight, you might witness a free spirit hopping into the pool, but that's all good at Lou's. Sit back, kick off the flip-flops, and enjoy good beer and food.
Tips from foursquare
Another Opium Group venture and a great place for late A great place for late night, mid-week romps! Weekends are good as well--just be careful who you talk to because it is pretty dark in there… -Geo
an understated outdoor poolside bar and kitchen in the courtyard of the New Hotel. It's like a Miami version of Cheers: You end up getting sloshed on brews such as Bieres de Chimay Triple.
Billed “a pub with gourmet food,” Lou’s lives up to its name with its tropical poolside location. Bonus, exec chef and owner Lou Ramirez preps signature dishes like Iberico squid and artisan pizza.
Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Relax on the (ridiculously comfortable) couches or take a dip in the pool - just don't forget to order a caipirinha.
The perfect hangover cure? A "Beer Brunch". Hit Lou's for poached eggs on brioche w/ crab meat, Hollandaise, and chorizo washed down with a cold pint of Bell’s Oberon.
