 Located in the heart of the City of South Miami, Bougainvillea`s is a hot spot on the South Florida live music circuit. The place is best known as a laid-back live music venue. They have the hottest live music acts Tuesday through Saturday and featuring a variety of styles including Jazz, R & B, Latin Funk, Reggae and Rock. It`s one of the few neighbourhood bars to feature five nights a week of live music in a variety of genres without a cover charge.  
 Environment / Look & Style / Location:  
 Hidden away across the street from the Shops at Sunset Place, in the heart of South Miami, Bougainvillea`s is an amazingly cozy bar.  
 It has a homey, laid-back, cozy environment with a nice, casual, friendly, crowd.  
 The front patio, is typically ablaze with flowing fuchsia bougainvillea, has a tropical feel and is surrounded by lush palms and tropical plants. It`s a great place to sip a few drinks with friends and lovers or relax and listen to live music.  
 The place has an indescribable addictive quality. It`s like a second home. Once you·ve experience Bougainvillea`s you don`t want to leave and you keep coming back. The almost daily live music bands add to its unique character.  
 At Bougainvillea`s you can expect to find something different every night of the week. The crowd can be quite an eclectic crowd and you`ll see anything from "club chicks" to bar flies.  
 It features three separate sitting areas;  
 Front Patio - Bistro style mosaic top candlelit tables on Chicago brick. The back patio, an expansive and informal space, is open Wednesday through Saturday. Inside the tavern, the bar is the centerpiece of the action, and yields the "best seats in the house". During the re-design, all the old wood was saved to make bar. Bougainvillea`s bears a warm, wood interior muted by balmy red lights, all of which exudes an old-fashioned appeal, like the kind of watering hole you might fall into on a trip to Key West. A shelf near the ceiling holds several wine and liquor bottles, boxing gloves, boat models, a ceramic bulldog, plus various other knickknacks, and an archaic, 50-cents-a-gallon gas pump stands on the floor below.  
 Serves  
 A full bar featuring premium spirits, a wide variety of beers (domestic and imported)  
 History  
 Bougainvillea`s is built inside a 1929-era 1,500-square-foot cottage and has been open about five years. The cottage has been used as a retail gift shop, a tearoom and most recently a doctor`s office before it was converted into Bougainvillea`s Old Florida Tavern. The cottage is constructed of Dade County pine and has wood siding painted brick red.
