Plan to start one evening of your week at the University of Miami’s┬áRosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. The Wetlab, with short but very sweet hours of operation (Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5:00-9:00 and Fridays from 4:30-11:00) is praised as being not only a great, mellow place to sit outside and enjoy a drink with friends, but also as being one of the few social hotspots “that still put nature’s beauty on display.”

The Wetlab is strictly a bar, so don’t go there expecting to eat, but you can look forward to a full bar, cheap drinks, a great view of Bicayne Bay, and no pressure! Important: The Wetlab’s bar is cash only!
