Walking into The Broken Shaker at the Freehand feels like you’re entering a secret oasis that you didn’t know existed, assuming that your oasis includes a wide range of cocktails. The small bar and accompanying Middle Eastern-inspired 27 Restaurant open up to a large, tree-lined patio, garden, and pool, all of which will almost make you forget that you’re next to South Beach. Unlike most of the clubby bars in the area, The Broken Shaker feels a little more grown up, like somewhere that both college spring breakers and a group in their thirties could enjoy. Yes, there will probably be a bouncer and club-goers present, but this spot has great drinks and it’s one of the better options in the area.
