Mon-Tue: 7:30am-12am, Wed-Sat: 8am-6am & Sun: 8am-1am.
La Moon is a quaint late-night Colombian hangout for Brickell barflies in need of some sustenance. Ending a night out at La Moon is pure bliss. Empanadas, salchipapas, chicken burgers, or perros Colombianos are our go-to post-club grub. What’s more to love? Their sauces are killer — try the green sauce for a creamy, garlic-cilantro kick on your perro.
157 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 3313
Mon-Wed: 8am-12am, Thur: 8am – 2am Fri- Sat: 8am- 5am Sunday: 8am- 12am.
Big Pink is one of Miami Beach’s original late-night drunchie spots. Situated on Collins Ave between 1st and 2nd Streets, Big Pink is the place to go after a sloppy night at Story or Radio Bar. The gigantic menu has a ton of options, and the diner-like ambiance makes you feel right at home. I usually go for a gigantic, juicy burger at Big Pink. Grease counteracts booze, right?
7232 Biscayne Blvd Miami, Fl 33138
Lunch 12pm – 4 pm, Dinner 4pm – 11pm, Late Night 12am – 5am.
Moshi Moshi is perfect for a late-night sushi craving. They have great service, a more sophisticated vibe, and fresh seafood. We love the spicy octopus ceviche, but the citrus-ginger yellowtail gets rave reviews.
29 NE 11th St, Miami, FL 33130.
Open 24 Hours.
We’ve all had one of ‘those’ nights at E11even. But if you’re brave enough, the food is actually as good as the entertainment! *side-eye emoji* The chicken tenders are on point and totally hit the spot when you’re hungry but not ready to go home yet.
34 SW 8th St, Miami, FL 33130.
Daily 9am – 5am, Thu – Sat 9am – 6am.
If you’re in Brickell or South Beach and want to munch out on something semi-healthy, La Sandwicherie is for you. They have tasty sandwiches, salads, and croissants for under $10, not to mention their signature Croque Monsieur, which is not healthy but is totally delicious drunchie fare.
2437 SW 17th Ave, Miami, FL 33145
Open til 2am Mon-Fri and 5am Fri-Sat.
Everyone loves a giant slice of pizza (especially when you’ve had a few). Plus, who can resist Casola’s free samples? Those little pieces of cheesy deliciousness are the best things ever after a night out on the town. We like to keep it traditional and stick to Casola’s giant pizza slices ($5) when we go, but their wings and steak subs are also pretty mouthwatering. Remember it’s cash only, so save a few bucks while you’re at the bar.
1401 SW 22nd St, Miami, FL 33145
Daily 12pm – 3am, Fri-Sat 12pm – 6am.
Los Perros is perfect for a late-night fix after a night out. Better come with an appetite though, this Colombian joint will definitely curb that hangover. They have locations in Miami Beach, Kendall, Coral Way, and Flagler. Their selection of sauces are absolutely delicious, and for my money, the red sauce is the best. We recommend the empanadas or the super perro. If you want to go all out, try maicito with chicken and cheese. Never before has a bowl of corn made you this happy, I promise.
3470 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33127
Tue-Thur 12pm – 3am, Fri + Sat 12pm – 5am, Mon + Sun 12pm – 2am.
Gigi is the best late night spot when you didn’t have a proper dinner before going out, but unlike most of the spots on this list it’s not super cheap. Located in Midtown right next to Bardot. Gigi is the place for noodles and buns. The whole menu is great, but be adventurous and try one of their daily specials.
Ms.Cheezious Food Truck
Food Trucks: Around 3am.
7418 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL 33138
Ms.Cheezious is goooooood, and they know it! With the recent opening of their Biscayne Boulevard location, plus two food trucks, it’s safe to say this grilled cheese whiz has become a Miami staple. Although the restaurant is only open till 11 p.m., you can usually catch their food truck late nights at Gramps in Wynwood. I love the Grilled Harvest with apples and Havarti, but the barbeque pulled-pork melt on Texas Toast is a beer drinker’s best friend.
Flanigan’s Coconut Grove
2721 Bird Ave, Coconut Grove, FL 33133
Daily til 4:30 am.
Flanny’s in the Grove was a staple of many Miami childhoods, so it gets extra points for staying power. These days, Flanigan’s makes the perfect late night drunchie spot. Dig into the rib rolls, tumbleweed onions, wings, baby back ribs … are you seeing a theme here? Barbecue, man, it goes great with a buzz.
1220 16th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139
Open Sun-Wed til 2am and Thur-Sat til 5am.
Bodega is fairly new to the South Beach scene, but it is awesome. When you get tired of dancing in the lounge and are ready for some authentic tacos, make your way to the silver taco truck inside. The tortas and tacos de la casa are some of our front-runners, and the Al Pastor is a personal fave. Bodega has a cool late-night vibe too, with good music and Mexican-inspired drinks that will keep your spirits high well into the wee hours.
Mary’s Coin Laundry
Open 24 hours.
2542 SW 27 Avenue, Miami, FL 33156
Mary’s Coin Laundry is on fleek for drunchies. It’s hands-down one of Miami’s best late-night Cuban spots. If your drunk cravings are whispering, “empanadas” and “croquetas,” make your way to Mary’s. The pan con bistec and batido de mamey are pretty awesome too.
