Tarpon Bend in Coral Gables Happy Hour

Tarpon Bend is a pretty classy, lively place to meet people in the heart of Coral Gables. During happy hour, their prices are 2 for 1 well drinks, beer, and house wines.


The event starts at 5PM. I've made reservations for our own area so ask the host or hostess where the Miami Matchmaker is and he/she will guide you to where our table is at. You can also use the comment system below for guidance from the rest of the group in case you are lost or confused.

Tarpon Bend gets ridiculously crowded after 6PM so if you can make it on time, I highly recommend it so you find easy parking.


Speaking of parking, it is sometimes extremely hard to find parking in Coral Gables. I spoke to Chris, the manager, and he says you can Valet park for 7 bucks plus tip or you can self-park in their parking lot for $1 an hour. The parking lot is located on Galiano St just behind the tavern. 


Thank you all for the responsiveness when I asked for feedback. You are making my job a lot easier and I hope you meet some amazing people this coming Single's Party. Invite your friends!

    Thank you all who attended. I had a fantastic time with you all. I'll be setting up the next event soon. Josette has offered to help me organize more events so we can have them more than once a month.

    Dear Dan, I live on Las Olas , Fort Lauderdale. If you ever decide to set your events in Broward county, I would be glad to provide my help in organization of those events. I know all our great and upscale spots here on Las Olas that members of our group would like and enjoy. Please use my help as well if needed. I would love to help.

      Thank you, but I have asked around about throwing Ft. Lauderdale events and it's not a popular idea. You are welcome to suggest an event here for Ft. Lauderdale and set an event up yourself!

    Hi Dan, I am sorry I wasn't able to make it:( I am a Realtor so sometimes I do not belong to myself; I belong to my clients. I was very excited to attend this event and getting ready. But at the last moment I had to change the dress for a business suit and go in the opposite direction. I am looking forward to meet you and all your great members next time. Sorry I missed it.

    Thanks. I was really looking forward, especially that area. I am attending a workshop and one date was rescheduled to that date. If it changes again, I will be sure to update my RSVP.

    March 18

  • Jeanette

    I do apologize, I have a class that evening. I look forward to meting you all another time; hopefully in the Gables again. That's the element I'm looking for.
    Have fun!

    March 18

    • Dan S.

      It's all good, Jeanette. It's hard throwing events that EVERYONE can make it to. I'll be sure to throw another party shortly after that.

    Dear Dan, thank you for accepting me to your group. I just joined. Thursday sounds great. Better to be in the place that is not as packed as it might be on Friday or Sat. I am looking forward to meet you all there. Thanks.

  • Angela

    I can't make it on Thursday. Try to catch you all next time.

    March 15

  • Brad S.

    Thursday won't work for me either. But should be a good time

    March 15

  • grace

    I can't make it Thursday... Will try to make the next event

    March 15

  • Dan S.

    The date has been changed to Thursday March 27th.

    1 · March 15

  • Mario E.

    Thursday is OK with me.

    March 14

  • Dan S.

    To all who RSVPed to this event, would you be opposed to changing the date to Thursday 3/27 at 5PM? I was warned that it's exceptionally crowded and packed on Friday and it would be best to not throw it on a busy day. If you aren't cool with Thursday, then please suggest another day besides Friday and Saturday.

    March 14

    • Angela

      It's always crowded no matter what day of week. If you have reservations it shouldn't matter. I prefer Friday or Saturday.

      March 14

  • Dan S.

    Thanks for your feedback everybody! The majority has recommended Friday's happy hour so I scheduled it for then. Sorry Mary and Patricia, I hope you can attend on Friday. It's over two weeks advanced notice so I hope you can schedule it in. it'd be great to meet you.

    March 12

    • Brad S.

      Honestly it's crazy no matter what day. I'm fine with the original plan. It's just a busy bar .

      March 14

    • Karla

      I would recommend change it to Thursday.

      March 14

  • Mariely S.

    Wish I could make it but I'll be flying back from Puerto Rico that day. Will have to catch the next one. Have fun everyone!

    March 13

  • Angela

    Friday or Saturday. but if Friday I wouldn't get there until 7.

    March 12

  • Angelica

    I can attend any day from Thu the 27th to Sat the 29th. See you all there!

    Hello Dan. This sounds GREAT! Friday night or Saturday is always good for me. The other nights, I just have to play it by ear due to the nature of my business which is ever-changing.
    Thank you.
    I am really looking forward to meeting you and everyone. Sorry I missed you on the Art Walk, I am in the midst of a workshop and we had gathered that evening. So, I was there, just with another group. I saw that you all kept in touch with each other so that's really good. It's very easy to get disengaged at Art Walk.
    See you soon.
