It feels like just yesterday that Stache opened its doors to downtown Fort Lauderdale. The 1920s-themed lounge has dazzled patrons with plenty of live bands, DJs, and burlesque shows since. Of course, its variety of craft cocktails help keep people coming back for more too -- seriously, don't leave without trying an authentic old-fashioned. So when Stache turned 1 this weekend, we had to be there to catch it all.

Joel DaSilva & the Midnight Howl warmed up the crowd with an impressive blues-rock set while a fire dancer dazzled patrons upstairs. The flaming hoop skirt paired with the jazzy rock of DaSilva really struck a chord. It was wall-to-wall entertainment, which is really what Stache is all about.

The transition between the well-suited blues rock of the Midnight Howl and the house music that followed wasn't exactly subtle -- but since when is downtown Fort Lauderdale really known for its subtlety? The energetic and bold vibe kept people in the room for the duration of the night, which isn't an easy feat for club promoters, so hats off to Stache on this one.

It was just after 1 a.m. when Dubtribe Sound System took the stage with its wild, live house set, instantly reenergizing any lagging partygoers. The duo, which consists of Sunshine and Moonbeam Jones, has been crafting electronic music since the '90s. With live sampling, layering, and mixing, Dubtribe's set raised the bar for house artists that regularly tour with a Macbook Pro and a premade mix.

If you've been to Stache, you know that it's something downtown Fort Lauderdale desperately needs: an injection of sophistication and culture. Given what Stache was able to accomplish this past year, we can't wait to see what's in store for the future.
