The world’s a different place than it was in 1962, when the Beatles were kings, JFK was president, and the internet sounded like the name of some kind of obscure tennis equipment. However, despite a half-century of changes, at least one thing remains consistent: when they want a darn good burger, people still come to the Keg South. The sound of familiar greetings echoes against the wood-paneled walls of the 50-year-old establishment, mingling with the clatter of billiard balls and clink of frosted mugs. Neon beer signs and flat-screen televisions cast a colorful glow on the regular clientele, who munch thick beef burgers, freshly cut fries, and grilled wings. Throughout the year, the pub staff holds special events out in the parking lot, including a Christmas pig roast that was called out in the Miami Herald.
Red Zone Sports Bar and Grill envelops sports fans in a laid-back atmosphere while servers whisk classic pub fare such as pork sandwiches and flatbread pizzas to tables teeming with pints of Sam Adams, bottles of Guinness, and a cascade of buzz-worthy cocktails. Guests can bask in the glow of flat-screen TVs indoors as their favorite teams duke it out, or venture to the outdoor patio for breeze-kissed dining. Specials such as happy hour and all-you-can-eat wings stretch themselves across the weekly calendar, while college night on Thursdays encourages scholars to debate the merits of sandwiches versus wraps through dissertations written on bar napkins.

The bar looks like a beer-lover's rainbow, a row of draft handles representing more than 30 brews. While bartenders fill pints and 7-ounce flight glasses, flat-screen televisions air major-league sports from around the world, from football to international soccer to pay-per-view UFC bouts. These surroundings make the bar and grill the kind of place where fans can spend an entire day catching games while enjoying drinks and a menu of pub fare. Valet parking lends the sports-focused eatery a luxurious aspect only seen in the sports world when the Marlins wear tuxedos instead of their baseball uniforms. In addition to sports, Hoops attracts guests with special events such as Singles Mingles and karaoke.
