Wanna test your smarts? Here are 15 of the best trivia nights in Miami

Sometimes, just straight up drinking beer can get boring. Sometimes, you want to feel like you got a little smarter, and sometimes you want to feel like you’re winning.

Enter bar trivia.

In the last few years, Miami’s gone from having a couple bar trivia nights a week to one in pretty much every pocket of the city. We’ve put together a list of the best spots in neighborhoods across the 305 every night of the week, running from north to south.

Check out our list, grab your squad, and any random info you have about ‘90s pop music or U.S. history, and best of luck out there.
