Ted's Hideaway is a true "locals"
bar, and one of the few places
in South Beach where you can grab a drink in a chill atmosphere without
pretentiousness that can sometimes abound in Miami.
The graffiti on the wall in the girl's
room states "South Beach - A great place to be a successful failure!" and
after a night at Ted's, you know what that means! This dark and smoky
hangout has the word "dive" written all over it, but the locals aren't
complaining: The jeans and t-shirt crowd packs the place to get plastered on
the low-cost drinks, especially during the twice-daily happy hours, when
prices get slashed to encourage even more debauchery.
Ted's doesn't always
have bouncers on duty, so the hot ladies tending bar have to handle every
problem that arises, whether it be a drunken brawl or
cooking grub. Now that's what we call well-rounded girls!
