The earthy venue holds approximately 150 people and boasts an open floor plan outfitted with palm trees, winding paths, rocks for chillin’, a complete JBL sound system and DJ booth. The space is adjacent to the Dania Beach Bar & Grill.
“We’re working to bring music and arts to the city of Dania Beach,” said Garrett Fatone, co-owner of Oasis and the hospitality company Khulcher, alongside his business partner, Anthony Mejia. “Between all the attention in Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood, Dania Beach is still kinda untouched in the midst of all that. It’s a perfect spot.”
According to Fatone, the first events at Oasis will include electronic tunes, local vendors selling merch and crafts, live painting experiences, grub and booze. Slated for the grand opening affair are sets by Shiro Tiger, Antonio Estrada, LA Dirtbags, Complex Situation, Yeshayahu, and JBZ.
Oasis’ full menu includes “American cuisine with a Southern flair,” with burgers, ahi tuna, gator bites and more. The venue also has a partnership with Funky Buddha and will serve up the latest and greatest from the Oakland Park Brewery.
“It’s an extension of the [Dania Beach Bar & Grill] and we’re expanding on all that it has to offer,” said Fatone, who collaborated with Kellen Barth of Dania Beach Bar & Grill on the expansion.
Where the grill space has live acts booked throughout the week as well as on Fridays and Saturdays, Oasis is shooting to attract folks on Sundays.
And, yes, there will be mimosa and sangria specials too, so you can keep your brunch buzz going strong.
The Oasis Grand Opening. 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 8, at the Oasis (adjacent to Dania Beach Bar & Grill), 65 N. Beach Road, Dania Beach; eventbrite.com. Admission is free.
