The Blues Bar at the National Hotel

Map & Directions 1677 Collins Ave.
Miami Beach, FL 33139


Miami New Times' Description

If fly-by-night lounges with flimsy faux furnishings have left you feeling a little disposable, it may be time to plant your derriere at a sturdy oak bar with ambiance rooted in another era. The Blues Bar (formerly D'Lounge) at The National Hotel gives guests a taste of classic 1940s elegance without pretense. A spacious reception area with high ceilings and comfortable, unobtrusive furniture surrounds the bar. Amenable bartenders dressed in unassuming vests and starched shirts pour carefully crafted cocktails, whether throwback Manhattans or refreshing caipirinhas. The bar's diverse international and local patrons seem to agree that the fish tacos with blackened mahi mahi, mango, and pico de gallo are delectable. Also popular are $5 tapas, like the Wakame tuna slider and ceviche with avocado and jalapeno, offered between 4 and 7 p.m. daily.

    Have we entered the Martini Zone? Look at the clock above the bar and you’ll notice that it is stuck on 7:39 aka 24-hour time aka order another round of martinis!

    From 7 PM-11PM, mixologist's Julio Cabrera’s concoctions will be priced at $12 -- not quite a door-buster price, but not bad for South Beach. Expect live music, too.

    This place makes you feel like you walked into an old movie and they absolutely keep it classy with the drinks!! Total throwback vibe!
