Amidst the glitz and glamour of South Beach, there’s a local gem that stands out for its unapologetically laid-back vibe and authentic Miami spirit. Mac’s Club Deuce Miami has been honored with the 2023 Tasting Alliance Best Dive Bar award, solidifying its status as a beloved institution not only in the city but across the country.

Stepping into Mac’s is like entering a time capsule of Miami’s past. The rustic decor, pool tables, and classic jukebox contribute to the unique ambiance that has made this speakeasy dive bar a landmark in Miami Beach. Its status as the oldest bar in Miami, opening its doors in 1926, predates the trendy craft cocktail scene and frozen blender drinks that now dominate South Beach.

What sets the Deuce apart is its commitment to preserving the essence of a true dive bar. Unadorned drinks served in a low-key setting create an atmosphere where patrons can genuinely connect. In an era where trendy mixology has taken center stage, Mac’s remains a haven for true dive bar connoisseurs who appreciate the charm of an old-school establishment and the opportunity to strike up a conversation with the person sitting next to them.

As the 2023 Tasting Alliance Best Dive Bar award winner, Mac’s Club Deuce Miami continues to be a testament to the enduring allure of authenticity and simplicity. For those seeking a genuine Miami experience, Mac’s is the place where time stands still, and the spirit of the city’s past lives on. Cheers to Mac’s Club Deuce – a true icon in the world of dive bars.
