Overall, there's nothing special about this place. If I came in with no expectations, I wouldn't be impressed or disappointed. The fact that I saw nothing inherently bad about this place would be a good thing...except this is Miami and I did come in with a certain level of expectations.
Specifically, I was expecting to come in to see a live jazz band playing. What I found was a DJ playing rap music. I don't have anything against rap, except that when I'm expecting a jazz band, I want to hear jazz. Maybe another visit would redeem this place in my eyes, but I don't think I'll make one.
Oh yeah, everything else about the place? About the same level as a local tavern. So just go there.
Pros: Good parking, Reasonable prices
Cons: , Nothing Special
Sorry but this place sucks. And if you ask me all the other rateings are sent in by people involved with this sorry place or Muscians who play there. First of all Sax on the Beach is located in an ugly back room in a condo. There is no class here. Its not even a nice dive bar with character. And as for the music when I walked in at a normat hour it was dead- I asked the guy at the door what the band was going to play that night and the guy told me "Gecco Jazz" whatever that is. My advise: avoid this place and go to some place with more character.
I'm in my late twenties and I use to club like crazy while I was in college. Back then it was "loud clubs, hard music etc. etc. Now that I'm in my late twenties, I prefer somewhere more relaxing and the "noise" level a bit more calm yet enjoyable! I was introduced to "Sax on the Beach" by my boyfriend; and though they were doing some renovations at the time I was impressed. If you're looking for a nice atmosphere, good music (contermporary jazz, latin jazz etc), wonderful service, food, drinks etc.; this is the place.
Pros: accessible, inexpensive, relaxing
I am new to the Miami area so I tried several nightspots around the town. However , I must say I found a home when I ventured into SAX ON THE BEACH. It truely offers the best in mature unwinding no matter what type of day you had.Sax on the Beach offers a piano player every happy hour and live bands of tantalizing variety every night. Its better than a box of chocolates. It is a melting pot of smooth sounds, refreshing libations, satisfying meals, wonderful people, and most important a SPECTACULAR STAFF. The entire staff works feverously to make every patron feel appreciated. This is a quality that makes SAX ON THE BEACH a priceless commodity that should be added to everyones social calander.
The live bands this club gets to play there are GREAT!! Don't miss out!
Phenomenal atmosphere, great music, great and friendly service, and the owners are great hosts!
Great atmosphere, excellent service, and lots of fun. The music is great!!!!
Wonderful place to unwind and meet up with friends. Fantastic music, great drinks and the friendliest staff around!
The proprietor is as colorful and creative as the
neighborhood and music itself. Sax on the Beach
is a warm, welcome respite from the hustle and
bustle of downtown -- and a great addition to the
local area. Lots of fun and fabulous music!
Everything from the atmosphere, staff, quality of food and beverage, design - especially the owners of Sax on the Beach relates to the "catchy title" above - "Primo"
Congratulations to a job well done and may the future bring you all the luck, happiness, prosperity and recognition that you truly deserve!
Pros: Friendly Staff, Great Atmosphere, Something for Everyon

Great place, music and crowd, just what Miami needed. Very relaxed and friendly great for after work! Thanks
What a GREAT place nothing else like it in Miami.
I'ts really nice to hear live music while enjoying time with friends and sipping a great drink.
Pros: inexpensive, valet or free parking, great live music
My choice for great food and live music! Voted best local neighboor bar and it's only be open for 8 months, so I checked it out and was pleasantly surprised. What a beautiful place, warm and cozy.
Pros: PLENTY OF PARKING, GREAT PRICES, NEVER A COVER CHARGE
Sax is a great place to go drink or eat. They always have great music and good food. It gets my highest vote! :-)
Pros: good parking, yummy food, excellent crowd
It doesn't get any better than that, especially at Sax. We love this place! Finally a place where we relax, sit back and enjoy the great live music. Two thumbs up!
It seems that, for the most part, in order to enjoy local musicians in Miami, you need to go to a "dive" bar...which has its charm...but it's nice to be able to listen to great live music at a nice, clean, decently decorated place. Along with the weekends for jazz and blues, Tuesday nights are pretty decent if you like reggae/alternative.
The nicest thing about the place is that it emulates the old chicago music clubs of the 30s and 40s and does not give the same old look of south beach. Also, it's great to have a club with different music every night reflecting the multi-racial and ethnic community of Miami.
Pros: great value, talented musicians, pleasant staff
