For many of us Sundays are not Sundays without football.  And if you find yourself in Miami Beach on a Sunday afternoon, you may as well root for the local team right?  These are our favorite spots to watch the Dolphins on the beach.


This quintessential Irish pub is serving up pub food and draft beer right on Ocean Drive.  You may want to make the most of your time in sunny South Florida by spending as much time as possible on the beach.  If this is the case, then just walk straight off the dunes and right into Finnegan’s with sand in your shoes, wet hair, and all.


Truly a hideaway, this refreshing oasis from the glamour and ostentatious displays of wealth of South Beach is a favorite for locals and tourists alike. It’s a place where yachtsmen and bus boys can come together to watch the game and have a drink or two… or six.  Voted best dive bar in Miami Beach in 2014, Ted’s has drink prices that are pretty fair, and for Monday Night Football, they dish out free hot dogs!


For something a little more hip, Radio Bar is definitely the spot to catch the game on NFL Sundays.  Often pumping out old school hip-hop, it’s always a fun time with their complimentary pool, ring toss, Wii sports and Jenga games available.  During football games they have $4 Yuengling and Bud Light Drafts.  Located on 1st. street in the heart of SoFi (south of 5th), this place has 4 big screens for you to see the Dolphins play.


When Floridians think football, Duffy’s immediately comes to mind.  You’ll find more empty seats at the stadium than you will at Duffy’s during a Dolphins game.  It is the epitome of the classic American sports bar: great bar food, an energetic environment, and big screen TVs… everywhere!  And don’t forget Duffy’s claim to fame, two for one drinks, all day, everyday! Located in North Miami Beach, it’s a small drive away but certainly worth it if you appreciate being in a lively local environment.


The Clevelander is so entrenched with Miami football sports culture that ESPN actually as a studio on the second floor where Dan Le Batard, Miami’s most famous and “highly questionable” sports personality does his TV (broadcast on ESPN2 daily) and radio show.  If you are looking for a true South Beach experience, this is definitely the spot.  They have their own halftime shows, deals on beer tubes and buckets, and girls whose jerseys have been painted on.  After getting tired of watching the Dolphins struggle against a mediocre team, you can jump in the pool and mingle with some of the world’s finest super models!
