Puerto Sagua: Midnight Snacks


You and your friends have been exploring the South Beach club scene since early evening, bouncing from dance floor to dance floor in one of the undisputed party capitals of the world. Now it’s after midnight and you’ve got some serious hunger pangs to contend with. Don’t make an ill-advised junk food run to a convenience store. Instead, drop by Puerto Sagua, one of the best spots in Miami for late-night bites that are both delicious and satisfying. Locals flock to this South Beach institution during the day for its casual atmosphere–lighthearted Cuban folk art adorns the walls–and menu of classic Spanish and Cuban dishes, but it’s a particular favorite among club hoppers since it’s open until 2:00 am. So when you’re craving a nice Cuban sandwich or an order of ropa vieja (literally “old clothes”) at the end of a night out, grab your friends and find your way to Collins Avenue and Seventh Street. Once you’re inside, sidle up to the counter bar near the antique cash register and order a little bit of everything with the understanding that it will all be shared. Within moments, you’ll be digging into favorites like sweet fried plantains, avocado salad, fish soup, empanadas, and more. Everything’s affordable, so if you want more of anything, it’s not a problem. That also means don’t skip dessert, because a decadent slice of cuatro leches cake is definitely called for. As you look around at the satisfied smiles on your friends’ faces, you’ll know you’ve found the sweetest ending to an amazing night on the town.
