If Miami had cellars, this place would be like that basement where your coolest friends hang out, where indie music soon to hit the radio plays before anyone else hears it. Founded in 2005 by a DJ and a DJ-turned-criminal-defense-attorney (hey, it’s a dodgy neighborhood), Sweat is also a vegan coffee and treats bar with free Wi-Fi. It also sells magazines, books, and gifts and hosts events and parties. Right next door is Churchill’s Pub, a great indie music venue.
