This place is one of the more amazing phenomena of the Sweetwater neighborhood in Miami, the first being the fact that a bunch of Nicaraguans can operate a business without running it into the ground.

How do they do it? An anecdotal example illustrates the point. I can't remember the name of it, but during the summer of '04 there was a hurricane coming not too far off the Atlantic coast. It was almost a foregone conclusion that it would be just barely missing us to the north. This did not mean we were completely out of the woods--we still got tons of rain and a lot of wind. No one left their homes that night.

Except me and my friend, Pipo. We were on our way to South Beach, but we wanted to drink and there was nothing open. Even all the gas stations were closed. We thought, "hmm, maybe Tivoli?"

We took a left from 8th street onto 107th, and sure enough drenched in big bright lights were dozens of Nicaraguans eating at some Sweetwater cafeteria and WAITING IN LINE for Tivoli.

This was excellent news, and we have always been grateful. As much as we all hate them, I suppose they are good for something, right?

This is a great liquor store with a wide selection of liquors and especially wines. The owner is often there. He will give great advice when asked, but the everyday staff is also knowledgeable. The best part of all is that Tivoli South Liquors is open late, I believe they close at 2am.
