Feel Good, Be Cool

South Florida is one of the hippest, most cutting-edge party places in the world, and, if you don't consider yourself cool, it can also be one of the loneliest. But all is not lost. The upside of living in a party "town" three counties big is that there's something for everyone, including those who rock out to top 40 hits and long for the '90s. Dr. Feelgood's Rock Bar (219 Clematis St., West Palm Beach) welcomes you with arms wide open. For $20 -- quite reasonable by NYE standards -- you get two rooms of music: Downstairs will be top 40 and dance music and upstairs will be '90s prom. Admission includes complimentary drinks from 8 to 10 p.m., party favors, and the ubiquitous midnight champagne toast. VIP table reservations are also available. Call 561-833-6500, or visit feelgoodswestpalm.com for more info.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
