Heading to the roof isn't a bad remedy, with a cold drink in hand and a calming breeze sweeping from the ocean or bay at your back. Whether it's from the fourth floor of a boutique hotel in South Beach or the 50th floor in Brickell, who doesn't love a view from the top?

Here are the 10 coolest rooftop bars across Miami, organized by location and starting from the south.

If you think we missed one, please mention it in the comments or send us an email because we'll be updating this map every so often.
