WetLab is an unremarkable bar in a remarkable place: it’s slightly hidden inside UM’s Marine and Atmospheric Science campus with a view of Biscayne Bay that’d make the priciest hotels in town jealous. Even though it’s on UM property, it’s completely open to the public Wednesday-Friday and feels like you’re on a scavenger hunt if you’ve never been here before. You will get lost trying to find it - walk past classrooms, smile as you remember your own college days, then cringe as you remember more of them, and then sprint before the memory of that time you went streaking for free Jimmy John’s comes flooding back. You’ll find this place eventually, though, and you will be glad you did - especially if you come here at sunset, which is just spectacular.
