Somewhere in the middle lies Side Bar in downtown Fort Lauderdale: Its doesnt have the divey feel like Fat Cats and Poor House or the clubby feel like VooDoo Lounge and the Green Room. Its more of a club/bar: No hats or shorts allowed. And, literally, it rests in the middle of downtown too. So the DJ collective Twilight Notes appropriately chose Side Bar to host its new deep-house event, called The Standard, because itll be a comfortable area for both the bar and club types to lounge and dance. Records of the deep, funky, and soulful house nature will spin.
To boot, Wednesday at Side Bar is ladies night, so the female sex
gets two-for-one appetizers, cocktails, select wines, and all beers
but remember, ladies, to present yourself in an unescorted fashion
(the Side Bar flier reads and warns that this is for all unescorted ladies). The resident DJs will be Shade and Adam Foster, and each event could also feature special musical guests. The Standard runs from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. on the first Wednesday of every month at Side Bar (210 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale). No cover.

First Wednesday of every month, 7 p.m., 2010
