Fort Lauderdale Beach's newly renovated Rock Bar looks like how it sounds -- cheesy, lowbrow, and fun. An edgy red and black motif is complemented by record-sleeve-lined walls, bathtub-sized margarita glasses, and the biggest disco ball you'll probably ever see in your life. Ample indoor/outdoor seating; lots of cheap, beachy drink specials; and uncomfortably loud electronic (curiously, not rock) music streaming over the sidewalk make this an ideal location for a 20-something crowd, especially during spring-break season. And even though the oceanfront views are great, what rock-inspired lounge would be complete without a dark and seedy backdoor-accessible counterpart? Inside and behind Rock Bar is Exit 66, an enormous, Americana-themed dance room, complete with its own separate tiki bar and swimming pool out back. The possibilities for debauchery are virtually endless.
