Bar Stache, Fort Lauderdale's Newest Venue, Preview (VIDEO)

Bar Stache opened its doors to the public for the first time this weekend for the benefit of Glam-A-THON. The Fort Lauderdale nonprofit promises to kiss breast cancer goodbye, and describes itself as: "a breast cancer charity raising money for women, not research, with style, sass, and fabulous heels." They also brought out pink mustache pins, to complement the theme of the new speakeasy.

And there were plenty of fabulous women in heels at Stache, many of them in full flapper regalia, celebrating the themed night and the bar's new look. The space, formerly Green Room, has been totally transformed, as you will see in our preview video. We spoke with owner of Stache, Revolution, and America's Backyard Jeff John and promoter Mykel Stevens about some of the practical changes, the decor, and the charity. The bar is open weekends until the grand opening in November. Check it out after the jump.
