When the subject of Miami nightlife comes up, most people think of massive nightclubs with globe-trotting DJ’s, velvet-roped VIP sections, and a long line at the door. There are, however, plenty of great options for those looking for one of the more laid back things to do in Miami. The next time you’re getting your friends together for a night out, head a little off the beaten path for a drink at Purdy Lounge. You’ll be able to tell that this is a local’s spot from the moment you arrive, so settle in for a relaxing–but still very cool–experience. The lights are low (it seems that lava lamps provide the only illumination), the cocktails are both tasty and affordable, and the stylish crowd reflects the eclectic neighborhood. Slide a few bucks into the juke box for some old school tunes, or show up on a weekend to hear some of the most talented local DJ’s spin. Feeling competitive? A friendly wager with your friends over a game of pool will keep things interesting–loser buys the next round. For an extra-mellow experience, drop by on Monday nights, where all the reggae fills the space with a Caribbean vibe.
