After being in business for what seems to be several decades, the Poorhouse has established itself as the go-to bar for downtown Fort Lauderdale's barstool regulars, tattooed crowd, and music scene supporters. Although it was once covered in trash and nostalgia from days of yesteryear, the bar has since cleaned up its act. It even serves mouthwatering bar snacks and bites to complement any beer-filled stomach. The interior is simple: two wooden bars, a cozy stage in the back that is rarely empty, and a few high-top tables up-front. Movies play on the various TVs, but you can bet nobody really notices. However, outside is where all the action happens, and a patio seat is rarely available. The bartenders know just about all the patrons by name with cocktail preference, so it's safe to say the glasses are never empty. The people-watching is never dull, the music is always blaring, and the Poorhouse always makes for an interesting night out.
