It’s not everywhere you can get a drink at one of the best bars in the world — while sitting in your bathing suit at the hotel pool.
But that’s exactly the case at the Broken Shaker in Miami Beach, which was recently named among the World’s 50 Best Bars, in a “Drinks International” poll of more than 400 voters worldwide. The Broken Shaker was ranked No. 14 on a list that includes bar from London to Singapore.
It’s yet another honor for a tiny bar wedged inside the Freehand Miami hostel, which opens up to a pool courtyard filled nightly with revelers, no matter the weather. In the heat, it’s bathing suits optional.
Earlier this summer, the Broken Shaker — which has been nominated for a James Beard Award, the highest honor in dining and spirits — won the title of Best American Hotel Bar at the international Spirited Awards in New Orleans.
