As the veritable playground for billionaire types, Miami might not seem like the cheapest place for entertainment, but beyond the glitter and glam of VIP rooms and velvet ropes there are lots of events in Magic City that are absolutely free. Just bring your own snacks, a blanket and drink of choice for a cheap but fun night (or day) out.
15. Blackbird Ordinary
Blackbird Ordinary is a laid-back bar in downtown Miami and a favorite watering hole for locals who live or work in the neighborhood. People come for the chill atmosphere and cocktails with fresh muddled herbs straight from the giant wall gardens on the terrace. The outdoor area is a great place to relax with friends over some after work drinks or to get your dance groove on with DJs spinning electronica. They don’t have big acts, but they do frequently host FREE concerts featuring indie bands like Rob Riggs, Pase Rock, and Gerry Co. Concerts typically start at 10 pm, making it the perfect pre-clubbing spot before heading to the downtown clubs like Steam or E11even.
