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.
