The Retro Lounge

2608 S. Federal Highway
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316
The new Retro Lounge brings its rockabilly flare and tattoo-enthusiast style to Fort Lauderdale's nightlife scene. Throughout the shared space, rockabilly dudes and ladies with pinup styling mingle with Fort Lauderdale's rock 'n' roll party crowd. Originally a one-room tattoo boutique, the Retro Lounge has expanded to include a cozy backroom, where clients get tattooed and primped beneath pictures of John Dillinger and "The Rat Pack."
