"Tuesdays at Monterey Club" should not be kept a secret. South Floridians, it would be hard to stumble upon another joint that offers such great tunes every week. Location: The Monterey Club is deserted in the middle of nowhere -- AKA South Federal Highway on the way to the Fort Lauderdale Airport. You'll know it by the hot rods kept outside, the roller rink to its left, or the fact that it's attached to a tattoo shop. Vibe: The rockabilly/retro-themed bar has animal-print rugs and cushy coaches that line the walls. Buzz: No liquor, but the prime selection of 35-plus beers, as well as cider and wine, will please.
This evening, as detailed by DJ Sensitive Side:
"Crazy shit tonight @ Monterey - Otto Von Schirach DJ Set, BLEUBIRD, La Mano Fria art expo & live screen printing featuring exclusive, available for one night only shirt designs from Otto, Bird and La Mano. Plus me and KEMS holding it down as always. NO COVER. Joint starts @ 9PM. Radio-Active Records in the building, go... there today and spend some money and bring your receipt to the Monterey Club for a free drank."
Tuesdays in general: Your resident DJs will be DJ Sensitive Side and KEMS. But Mr. Sensitive Side makes sure each week has a unique style, so expect guest DJs and live performances from local artists. It could be a night dedicated to 45s called "Love and a 45" or a night of music focused on SoFla's instrumental musicians called "Beat Garage." Nights could include album-release parties and/or beat boxing. The music played? Funk, reggae, soul, '50s and '60s R&R, and instrumental. It's from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. each Tuesday, there's no cover, and the Monterey Club (2608 S. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale) offers free wi-fi and pool.
