Bougainvillea’s – A Southwest Miami Tavern

Known to us locals as Bougie’s, this laid back tavern inside a quaint Florida house is located in the heart of South Miami and offers live local bands, come as you are attitude and an overall great hangout. Located in a very nice area of South Miami right next to the Sunset Shops Mall, this long time popular bar has a no hassle entry policy along with low priced drinks and concoctions which is a rare for Miami bars and lounges.

This dive bar is surrounded by pretty Bougainvillea plants and benches to sit, chat and drink around the property. After enjoying the bands performing inside, visit the roof covered but open air backyard which has great dance music thrown from the host DJ of the night along with comfy seating areas, oh and giant JENGA games!

So on those evenings that you’re in the mood to enjoy a night out at a popular bar but want to avoid the traditional Miami crowds, lines and traffic, head to this area in Sunset and start at Bougie’s. Or at one of the restaurants and shops that surround it and then finish the night at this historic southwest Miami tavern!

Our Opinion:

Not really anything to warn you about this area, there’s lots of parking surrounding the tavern, both private lots and public street spaces. Bougie’s is free and without a club scene dress code. If you are in the mood to see the bands then do get there early because they don’t play into the late hours of the night.
