Like with dating and karaoke songs, sometimes you want options, which is what The Anderson is great for. Between the disco ball, animal print, and ’80s cigarette ads, this place feels like you’re traveling back in time to a Miami from 30 years ago, minus the perms and aerobics videos. There’s also a brightly colored tiki-shack patio outside with palm trees and rum-based cocktails.
