Bodega is a speakeasy and lounge located on Alton and 16th Street. As soon as you walk in, you’ll see the Taco Food Truck that serves quick and authentic Mexican street food. While you’re enjoying your food, you may notice people waking into a restroom but not coming back out. Explore behind the scenes of Bodega by walking through the restroom and into their secret lounge. Happy Hour is every day from 4PM-6PM.
Right next to Bodega is Ricky’s Bar and Lounge, open until 5AM. Check out their antique arcade games, unique drinks and delicious Artichoke Pizza.
The Miami Beach Botanical Garden is a 2.6-acre urban greenspace in Miami Beach, Florida founded in 1962. It was transformed in 2011 with a $1.2 million landscape renovation designed by South Florida landscape architect Raymond Jungles. The new landscape showcases native Florida plants and trees including bromeliads, palms, cycad, orchids and many others. There is a Japanese garden, native garden and bio-swale, and water gardens including ponds, fountains, and a wetland with mangrove and pond apple trees. The renovation also expanded the Great Lawn area for corporate and social events, established a plant nursery and event plaza, and enhanced the night-time lights, entrance gate, and pathways.
Frost yourself with the “Ice Bar Experience”. Enter their breathtaking, 23-degree winter wonderland constructed from 100,000 pounds of pure glacial ice.

Enjoy your favorite specialty cocktail, served in a hand-crafted glass made entirely from ice surrounded by professionally carved, custom ice sculptures.
