Get Off Here

The VIP culture of modern day clubs has come full circle — new digs opening up in Broward still have that South Beach influence, to be sure, but these joints are also sporting a dose of down-to-Earth reality. For example: Exit 66, the newly-opened nightclub from the creators of Crobar that tempers a bit of chic with a helpin’ of down-home Americana.

The club’s creators call its design “American kitsch”: picture mud-flap pinups, hukilau-style tiki bars, vintage Easy Rider-themed VIP rooms, and a 16-foot truck tire that doubles as a DJ booth. On Monday, the club will invite country boys and gals in for an all-American Memorial Day Pool Party, pulling double duty as an in-the-biz hoe-down. Everyone gets in for free, while hospitality industry workers with a pay stub pay just $25 for all-you-can-swallow draft beer and grilled hot dogs for the duration of their stay. You could also party like a blue collar playboy and order up the VIP “bottle service”: 30 Pabst Blue Ribbons crammed into a champagne bucket. Ah, now that’s fine living.

The party starts at noon at 219 S. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd. in — you guessed it - Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-357-9981, or visit
