America's Backyard

100 SW Third Ave. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312 | Fort Lauderdale | 954-449-1025

Location Description:

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.
