There are some occasions when you embrace the Las Vegas feel of Miami Beach and there are others when that sounds like a nightmare. For the latter, there’s Sweet Liberty. It’s packed at night, but when you’re looking to day drink it’s a good spot to hide out from the larger crowds. They have an extensive cocktail list and the food menu includes great snacks, like fried chicken, spicy tots, and cauliflower nachos, along with $0.75 oysters during Happy Hour.
