Bill's Filling Station

2209 Wilton Drive Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304 | Fort Lauderdale | 954-567-5978

Location Description:

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.
