Kalahari Bar

4446 NE 20th Ave.
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308

Tucked away in Fort Lauderdale is a prized piece of South Africa, or as the owners of the Kalahari Bar like to call it, "a home away from home." Quaint in size but large in personality and décor, there is no corner left untouched. Sports memorabilia hangs throughout, and authentic tribal accouterments adorn the walls. Televisions project the latest hometown sports happenings, and a pool table helps patrons occupy the time. The welcoming nature and ambiance of the place really draws you in, and you may even walk out having learned a few new catch phrases. In addition to the basic drink selections, the bar offers African cocktails and delights like the Lions Breath and specially imported wine and beer. Although it's located in Fort Lauderdale, beyond the Kalahari doors, you'll feel as though you hopped on a plane.
