The Miami International Airport isn’t exactly a haven for good drink selections — especially if you’re not in Terminal D (East or West wings). But there are some good finds out there, thanks to themed bars and Cuban cuisine. There’s always a chance for one more taste of liquid paradise before leaving the beaches of Miami by plane.
Here are the best places to drink at the Miami International Airport.
Beaudevin: Stylish wine bar with wine by the glass, small plates, and Mediterranean food.
Clubhouse One: Casual American food and a full-service bar.
Corona Beach House: Find your beach in the airport, even if it’s breakfast time.
Islander Bar & Grill: Jerk chicken, island-style, with a full bar.
Ku-Va: Classic, authentic Cuban food in a modern setting with a full bar.
Shula’s Bar & Grill: Casual grill with a full bar.
T.G.I. Friday’s: You know the deal here. Just because it’s in the Miami airport doesn’t mean anything changes.
Tradewinds Bar: A straight-up bar that focuses on being a bar (meaning no food service).
Bongos: Not much happening in Terminal J. Bongos has beer and Cuban food, though.
Heineken Bar: A small Heineken-branded bar alongside the wall with beer on tap and liquor as well.
Find your way to another terminal.
Budweiser Brew House: Not much of a place for ambiance, but there’s beer and Margaritas.
Air Margaritaville: Escape to Margaritaville and enjoy yourself as you waste away.
Samuel Adams: Classic bar food and a lineup of Sam Adams beer on tap and in bottle.
