Last night my friends and I went to Purdy Lounge. My wealthy best friend bought drinks all night. At the end of the night, the total was over $250, and upon paying the tab, his credit card declined (he just bought a huge TV that day). After his card declined, he needed to walk to the nearest ATM, so we stayed at the bar and waited for him to come back. After a short while, I stepped outside to call him, while my girlfriend was still inside seated at the bar. The bartender followed me outside and tried to pull me back inside, to pay the tab. I asked him not to put his hands on me, so he went inside and brought out five more guys to ""bring"" me back inside. I didn't want to be embarrassed, and unfortunately agreed to pay the bill as long as they didn't touch me. Thank goodness my friend came back (after I paid), and reimbursed me with cash. I still tipped the bartender $10 on a begrudging, high bill that I did not incur, and he actually complained to my friend about the low amount of my monetary gratuity. My friend then politely threw a couple $20s at him. I cannot believe how rude and aggressive people can be and will not ever go back there after that treatment.

This place has strong drinks, great shots and a great place to hang and have fun. What it isn't is South Beach BS or attitude, pick and choose by an obnoxious doorman. You will get in, the sound system is great, their is a DJ most nights and you will have fun.
I work here and the Purdy has been open since 2000 and yeh it is cold early, you have to be cause when it gets packed we want it comfortable. but there is no F'n way somebody got a drink with No VODKA. No Way that dude most be a competitor.

Not a huge fan of this place. Have been dragged there by local friends a few times who love the laid-back feel. I don't know about you, but when I go out in Miami, I want to feel like I'm in the middle of the action, not in a neighborhood hole in the wall. This place is smallish, and if you want laid-back, by all means, but I can't figure out why anyone would pick this place of all places to go. The last two times I've gone in the summer, the A/C has been so cold, I wanted a parka. Not happening.

I went to Purdy lounge bar for a relaxing night with my nephew an niece but I ended in a embarrassing situation.
We ordered a ""cranberry vodka drink"" and maybe for a mistake, the bartender forgot to add vodka.
That's ok, mistakes happen, I just tried to be polite and ask for a new drink right after the first sip but instead to get a new one I got totally mistreated. On top of that I had to pay $8.00 for a glass of a crappy cranberry juice and a lot of ice.

It flies a little under the radar and may not be the most well known street in South Beach but the place is a nice little place to hang. Plenty of couches, the staff is super friendly, and they have always had great music. The drinks are affordable and there is decent room to dance in the two rooms.

I was so tired of paying $12 for a martini and dealing with the overly aggressive men, then finally I discovered the Purdy, thank goodness. Friday nights its my hangout. I usually come with 3 oher girls and we dance away. The staff is really nice to us and most always buy us some shots and make us feel safe.

Everytime I came back home for the holidays, the Purdy Lounge is always a stop I must make. The location warrants the vibe of sobe without being in the midst of it, people are always having a good time, and the bartenders are super sweet. The lounge is a chill decor but the people are hot. This is a must see!
