Stache 1920's Drinking Den

Lake Worth's indie-music hot spot, Propaganda has the monopoly on good local, original music most nights of the week. If a local band hasn't played the spot, it won't be long.
B.B. King's Restaurant & Blues Club

B.B. King's Restaurant & Blues Club

Catch live blues, rock, reggae, funk, and other acts at this CityPlace venue, where the menu is as soulful as the music. Prices are moderate, though for a few acts, there's a cover charge and limited seating, especially when B.B. and Lucille show up.

  • 4:30 Boardroom Bar

  • The Ambry German & American Restaurant

    The Ambry German & American Restaurant

    3016 E. Commercial Blvd. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33318
    954-771-7342 Despite its diminutive appearance, the Ambry has a maze of tables and booths and a healthy-sized bar from which to consume the thickest, frothiest brews in town. Beer steins adorn shelves, shadow boxes contain trinkets, and numerous woodwind instruments dangle from the ceiling. The crowded bar boasts a row of topped-off steins, and soccer team flags and fake flowers decorate the little alcohol-vending alcove. Dark and packed with more tchotchkes than your grandma's apartment, the Ambry looks every bit of its 30 year pedigree. From the outside, it looks like a medieval castle with German and American flags on the ramparts. Inside, the dark, winding corridors reveal private rooms anchored by warm hearths. Up front is a bar that's covered with so much German soccer memorabilia you'd half expect to find World Cup hero Bastian Schweinsteiger chilling there with a pint of Tucher Hefeweizen in hand. Instead you'll find plenty of regulars hoisting decorative steins, eating ruby-hued prime rib specials, and noshing on supple, house-made sausages with rustic mustard sauce. A great place to drink, and good for a bite, too. Read more about The Ambry German & American Restaurant >>

  • America

    America's Backyard

    100 SW Third Ave. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312
    954-449-1025 Downtown Fort Lauderdale’s America's Backyard, it turns out, is nothing short of a huge pool party where the pool is swimming with bartenders and the deep end overflows with sparkling alcohol. The pool, AKA the main bar, is a tiled fortress of smiles and cocktails, the centerpiece of this open-air shindig. Thursday is College Night, so fill up on $1 drinks and $1 drafts all night, plus $10 unlimited beer pong. That's when alcohol mixes with dance music, rendering otherwise respectable young professionals helpless and desperate to dance on the bar. Read more about America's Backyard >>

  • American Social Bar & Restaurant

    American Social Bar & Restaurant

    721 E. Las Olas Blvd. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
    954-764-7005 American Social (or AmSo, as it’s been affectionately nicknamed) has proven itself a formidable addition to the nightlife scene for young professionals in Fort Lauderdale, especially in the heart of the tenuous Las Olas strip. By day a trendy lunch spot for the working crowd, at night this craft-beer-centric spot transforms into a full-blown bar, often so packed with good-looking 20- to 30-somethings that it’s hard to make your way back to the restrooms, let alone order a drink. Luckily, with a number of the plush booths sporting their own taps, plus a wall lined with pour-your-own stations, patrons can at least feel as if they have some options other than elbowing their way past all the buff bros and stiletto-sporting blonds crowding the bar. Live acoustic music or a DJ provide the entertainment on most nights, plus the flat-screen-lined bar playing all the best games or fights, has kept this haunt busy week after week. Reminiscent of a social club of yesteryear, with comfy and kitschy Americana-inspired décor, AmSo feels like the type of place the boys would go to see a boxing match and the ladies interested in meeting a Navy man on leave would hang out.

  • Art Bar

    Art Bar

    300 SW First Ave. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
    954-525-0044 It can sometimes seem like Art Bar has more girls in booty shorts working out on the sidewalks of Riverfront than it does patrons enjoying themselves inside the club. Although free entry and free drinks for ladies before 1 a.m. is a pretty good incentive to get both guys and girls through the door, it's a tougher sell to get them to stay there. The interior -- with two levels, draped curtains, and dark mood lighting -- has the look of a smaller-scale South Beach club, though perhaps one that's seen better, less grimy days. The main room has three full-liquor bars with scantily clad bartenders serving some of the most shoddily prepared drinks we've seen, especially the free drinks for the girls. The ratio of alcohol to sugar water is likely to cause diabetes before an actual buzz. Still, the dance floor usually fills out on weekend nights, hosting a crowd of budget-conscious young people booty-shaking to a DJ who plays a mix of Top 40s, dance, and hip-hop. A second, smaller room in the back does offer another dimension to Art Bar, and one could even imagine it being kind of cool in there -- maybe even somewhat “artsy” -- if only the place had the courage to do something slightly out of the box. A Riverfront staple through and through, Art Bar should probably stop living in the past and start catering to the more eclectic, slightly higher-brow demographic of young people that's steadily growing in Fort Lauderdale.

  • Bahia Cabana Beach Resort

    Bahia Cabana Beach Resort

    3001 Harbor Drive Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316
    954-524-1555 South of the commotion at Beach Place, Bahia Cabana is an oasis of local Fort Lauderdale culture. Tucked away between docks, the Bahia Cabana resort/hotel the bar boasts strong drinks and a ceiling littered with knickknacks, such as street signs and Florida license plates. With the beach across the street, locals and tourists alike drink and eat at the bar, in the attached restaurant area, or out on the dock overlooking yachts. For those arriving via water, dock space is free for bar and restaurant patrons. Tourists, to remember you're in the tropics, order specialty drinks like the "World's Best Frozen Pina Colada" or the "Frozen Pink Lemonade," both $7. Standard domestics cost $4.50, premiums $5. The wine list is extensive and fairly cheap, with no glasses more than $7.50. Throw one back with an order of conch fritters before you walk over for a day in the sun across A1A.

  • Beach Bar at Tropic Cay

    Beach Bar at Tropic Cay

    529 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304

    This open-air bar is what you'd expect from a sports bar on the beach: casual vibes and casual people watching a game barefoot while drinking a piña colada. At first, the bar looks tiny. But the indoor/outdoor space offers picnic benches, poolside seating, barstools, couches, and loads of standing space. The rustic wooden bar looks beaten by the salty air, and the rest of the bar is bare-bones beach-bar minimalism. Instead of high heels, you'll see flip-flops. Instead of three-piece suits, think bikinis. And instead of a DJ (though they have a jukebox), ask to see the bartender's iPod. Read more about Beach Bar at Tropic Cay >>

  • Big City Tavern

    Big City Tavern

    609 E. Las Olas Blvd. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
    954-727-0307 This classy bar and restaurant is one of Las Olas' key pickup scenes. Dinner is served in over-sized, circular booths, from which the diners can eye the folks at the bar and vice versa. Big City Tavern is reminiscent of the classic, traditional taverns of New York City, Chicago, and Boston. With a dozen international brews on tap and two dozen in bottles, Big City Tavern's selection might seem short when compared to those sports bars that pride themselves on 99 bottles of beer on the wall. But as the saying goes, it's not the quantity, it's the quality. And beer snobs all over South Florida slobber over the pints of Warsteiner (Germany), Guinness Stout (Ireland), and J.W Dundee's Original Honey Brown Lager (New York). The bar turns up the power with the Grolsch 16-ounce megabeers from Holland and domestic microbrews like the Abita Turbo Dog from crawfish country, Louisiana. Best of all, the Tavern stocks four Samuel Smith imports from England, ranging from the brewery's lager to its imperial stout. You'll pay more for any one of these last few than you will for a glass of merlot, but hey, Sam Smith's Nut Brown Ale has twice the bouquet of any vino out there. Read more about Big City Tavern >>

  • Bill

    Bill's Filling Station

    2209 Wilton Drive Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304
    954-567-5978 It's easy to imagine the male gay bar scene to be covered in glitter with half-naked boys running around in neon and grinding to house music. Well, Bill's Filling Station is just the opposite. Low-key and laid-back, it's more of a neighborhood, no-frills kind of joint. After entering and walking through a narrow dimly lit hallway, it's revealed that the bar is a lot bigger than you would expect. There are flat-screen TVs broadcasting the latest sports events and a pool table in the back, and most of the crowd is mid-30s and up, all dressed casually. A large portion of the patrons are sipping on beers; there isn't a Tartini or pink cocktail in sight. A well-sized dance floor is opposite the brightly lit stage, and another bar is near the back.

  • Bimini Bay Bar

    Bimini Bay Bar

    412 SE 32 St. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316
    954-768-0960 Hidden in a dark parking lot within earshot of airplanes landing at FLL is Bimini Bay Bar -- the czar of all dive bars, the sultan of all things skanky. The underground watering hole relishes the fact that it is a bit obscure and unknown to the general public. Heck, the banner outside the building proudly reads "located somewhere in Ft. Lauderdale." This is probably because it serves more than just beer. Once patrons enter the smoke-filled, cash-only establishment, they're greeted with undergarments stapled to the ceiling and adult films playing on the television above the bar. The young lady performing fellatio in the porno is likely to look very familiar to you, and after ordering a Miller Lite, you'll realize why. Yep, the bartender and the porn star are the same person; everyone just got an eyeful of her mouth wrapped around something similar to the neck of your beer bottle just a few moments prior. It's no wonder the risqué haunt opted not to have windows. Read more about Bimini Bay Bar >>

  • Bimini Boatyard

    Bimini Boatyard

    1555 SE 17th St. Causeway Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316
    954-525-7400 In 2008, Fort Lauderdale's Bimini Boatyard was sold. Chef Michael Bennet - a decorated veteran of Fort Lauderdale's Left Bank - was brought in to overhaul the menu, and the musty carpeting and worn dining room was ripped out and replaced with smooth hardwood floors and bright-blue seating. But does it matter what the dining room looks like or how many awards the chef has won? When I go to Bimini, it's not for ceviche (pre-made and terrible) or mango "coulis-grette" (watery) or however many tobacco onions you top your dishes with (they're soggy anyway). It's to sit on the docks and eat a fresh piece of grilled, Florida fish - snapper, grouper, mahi, or swordfish - which are still on the menu and still under $20 at lunch. As long as they leave that part intact, we're OK. Read more about Bimini Boatyard >>

  • Black Pearl Tavern

    2948 E Commercial Blvd. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308

  • Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale

    Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale

    2432 E. Sunrise Blvd. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304
    954-653-2583 Part of a chain with outposts around the state and in Vegas, Blue Martini is known as a pickup joint for the middle-age set. Gold-diggers and diggees are lovingly tended to by beautiful Barbie-doll waitresses in blue corsets and flat-ironed hair. Adding to the vapid factor is the fact that this high-end martini bar with valet parking makes its home … in the Galleria shopping mall! Relatively soulless, even by South Florida standards, Blue Martini has drinks called "The Skinny Bitch" and "The Palm Beacher." But still, it packs a crowd (even when they charge a cover!); it gets loud and busy, especially on weekends. Big cigar-chomping spenders love this place (Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein was a regular) and it shows. The menu is slim but fancy (lobster tacos, anyone?)

  • Boardwalk


    1721 N. Andrews Ave. Lauderdale Lakes, FL 33311
    954-463-6969 Boardwalk male dance club's four platforms feature men in skintight briefs and boots or sneakers undulating to club versions of Top 40 mixes. The dancers range from svelte boyish men who can do dead-on "Single Ladies" impersonations to beefy dudes who can hold the room's attention just by marching and flexing. Despite the sexual energy floating around, the club's vibe is that of a light-spirited Wilton Manors hangout. Drag queen MC Krystal K is a stunning female form. She hosts the night with humor and performs occasional lip-synch numbers to great applause. The stylish outside restaurant and bar, Beefcake's Grill, serves burgers, wings, chicken wraps, and other bar fare as well as saucily named frozen drinks like the Peppermint Pecker and the Screaming Orgasm for $10 a pop -- two-for-one with entrée purchase. Look out for Wednesday night's "New Meat" amateur night and occasional visits from porn stars. Read more about Boardwalk >>

  • Bokamper

    Bokamper's Sports Bar & Grill

    1280 S. Pine Island Road Plantation, FL 33324
    954-533-7152 Dolphins vet (and Plantation resident) Kim "Kimbo" Bokamper started this neighborhood hang to indulge his sports fetish, and it shows. Fifty plasma TVs enough for ya? If you know what most places with that sort of cathodic bling are like in terms of atmosphere, you probably have a good idea what to expect from the food. A few entrees, like the blackened swordfish sandwich and Bo's burger (with a fried egg poised atop) stand out on the menu, but beers, wings, and football: That trusty trifecta is always going strong at Bokamper's.

  • Briny Irish Club

    Briny Irish Club

    280 SW Second St. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301

    Like owner Mike Brennan's other Broward County pubs (Dicey Riley's and the Briny Irish Pubs at Riverfront and in Pompano Beach), Briny Irish Club's design is eclectic. From wall to wall and all across the ceiling, the entire venue is covered with guitars, surfboards, hobby planes, and photos of rock and pop stars from Jerry Garcia to Billy Corgan and Eminem. You could spend an entire night trying to break down the meaning behind this seemingly excessive ornamentation, but it's much more fun to let it fade into the background and have a drink. Besides, the long, broad, dark-wood bartop, where the drinking action happens, has its own allure. The bar's vibe crosses the unbridled energy of downtown Fort Lauderdale's Himmarshee party scene with the propriety of a neighborhood pub. Live bands play on Friday nights, and a VJ plays dance music that's synchronized with all of the bar's flat-screen televisions on Saturday nights. Various drink specials, such as $2 Miller and Bud Light drafts, are on all the time. Read more about Briny Irish Club >>

  • Briny Riverfront Bar and Restaurant

    Briny Riverfront Bar and Restaurant

    305 S. Andrews Ave. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
    954-376-4742 Along the New River downtown, Briny Riverfront offers customers two worlds. Outside, a nautical theme dominates with canoes, buoys strung along the ceiling like Christmas lights, and tables supported by barrels allegedly holding your favorite booze: Guinness and Bailey's, among others. You can watch million-dollar yachts cruise through the neighborhood or sit watching one of the many TVs broadcasting news or sports. Move inside and suddenly the bar's heart pumps green blood instead of pirate's grog. Lots of wood and Irish knickknacks hark back to the motherland. Inside or out, Briny provides a comfortable break from the disco fever that pervades the rest of Himmarshee. Read more about Briny Riverfront Bar and Restaurant >>

    541 NW 1st Ave. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
    954-357-3934 Located in a 4,000-square-foot warehouse space in Fort Lauderdale's up-and-coming FAT Village Arts District, C&I Studios is a multipurpose media company and events space with the mission of developing and cultivating an arts scene in South Florida.

  • Capone's

    310 SW 2nd St. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312

  • Capone


    310 SW Second Ave. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
    954-524-1969 Capone's on Himmarshee Street in Fort Lauderdale embodies the sort of one-track-mind nightclub that either keeps you coming back for its consistency or sends you running for some place with at least a shred of personality. Things you can count on from Capone's: DJs playing a stream of Top 40s and in-your-face dance hits and well-endowed dancers in fishnets seriously twerking on top of the bars. Things you'll see at Capone's that should probably make you question life a little: old dudes in fedoras standing on top of VIP tables throwing promotional items into the crowd, wobbling drunks leering with predatory eyes at young women, and wads of cash raining over the asses of the girls in fishnets seriously twerking on top of the bars. No, Capone's is not a strip club, but it does sink to a similarly low moral standard. Either way, it's worth stopping in once in a while along your usual bar-hopping route of downtown Fort Lauderdale; the doorman will let you pour your outside drink into a plastic cup rather than throw it out, and the go-go dancers and laser lights will entertain you for at least a few minutes. There's also usually no bathroom line, which comes in handy after a stop at Fat Cat's next door. Read more about Capone's >>

  • Casablanca Cafe

    Casablanca Cafe

    3049 Alhambra St. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304
    954-764-3500 A classy respite from the noise and hubbub at Beach Place, Casablanca Cafe sits on A1A across from Fort Lauderdale Beach in a quasi Mediterranean-style structure. You'll know you've arrived because there is no other establishment as packed for at least half a mile north or south. Sure, there may be a wait, but enjoying the beach and Florida sun is hardly an imposition. The cafe sits on two floors, and though it is mainly a restaurant, a fully stocked, comfortable, nonsmoky bar sits in the back. If you don't feel like sitting at the bar, grab a table outside (seating is available in or out of the sun). The views of the beach and passers-by make the outside an excellent location to throw back some cocktails. Try the berry mojito (the strawberries are big, plump, and fresh), sangria, or any number of specialty drinks. The food and drinks are a bit pricey, but that's what you pay for Moroccan-inspired ambiance and mingling with beach-chic patrons. Read more about Casablanca Cafe >>
