South Florida may not be the city that never sleeps, but the general consensus of the area is to get to sleep as late as possible. Luckily, night owls can also save money on drinks and appetizers just as the after-work guests enjoy with late-night happy hour specials. The locations stretch from Fort Lauderdale to Downtown Miami and every bar also serves food. Happy hour specials include discount-priced drinks, two-for-one specials, discounted bar menu items and more.
