Bodega Taqueria y Tequila is one of the most popular late-night dining options in all of Miami. After all, there’s few things better than killer cocktails and tacos + an exclusive speakeasy lounge in the back. It houses a hip taco bodega out front boasting some of the best Mexican bites in the city, as well a speakeasy where you enter through a secret bathroom door near the opposite side of the entrance. As you finish your night, make sure to grab more tacos for the road or stop by its sister bar, Ricky’s (which houses the NY transplant Artichoke’s Pizza), next door, which is also a great place to end your night with a full stomach. Recently, the brand also opened up its second location in the form of a hip food truck in the heart of Wynwood, also open for late-night Mexican snacks.
