Here is a comprehensive list of the bars and clubs in Broward and Palm Beach counties that will be open on Christmas. Think of it as an early Kwanzaa gift (since that holiday starts on December 26).
2345 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors. Visit themanorcomplex.com.
Bubblegum Friday is hosting its sixth-annual Christmas spectacular. Admission is free before midnight, and the event will feature DJ Miik and DJ JPS playing EDM and the hits.
Boston's on the Beach
40 S. Ocean Blvd., Delray Beach. Visit bostonsonthebeach.com.
This Delray Beach staple will have the live music of Palm Beach four-piece County Line Road, who describe themselves as "a high-energy country band with a rock edge, mixed up with a little hick-hop."
900 Sunrise Lane, Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-990-7578.
Christmas on the beach is a South Florida tradition. Without a cover charge, DJ Xcentric and DJ Bryson will be snapping you out of that Yuletide spirit.
52 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach. Visit facebook.com/DadaHouse.
At 10 p.m., indie-rockers Sweet Bronco will play a covers set of '60s garage psych, '70s art rock, and '80s indie. Among the bands Sweet Bronco promise to interpret are Television, Talking Heads, Guided by Voices, and the Zombies. No word on whether they'll be playing Alvin and the Chipmunks' version of "Christmas Don't Be Late."
214 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale. Visit facebook.com/luckysdowntown.
This Fort Lauderdale bar will be celebrating the night after Noche Buena with DJ Roll-E playing the rock-stopping beats.
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
1 Seminole Way, Hollywood. Visit hardrocklivehollywoodfl.com.
If you're feeling lucky, the casino will be in full functioning form with the poker room, slots, and card tables all in effect. All the restaurants and bars are open with entertainment, including Dale Powers performing at Council Oak Steaks & Seafood and Kemistry playing at the center fountain.
5688 W. Sample Road, Margate. Visit paladiumnightclub.com.
Who says salsa can't go with eggnog? Not us. Well, we suppose the spicy dip wouldn't go well with it, but dancing to the Latin music of
DJ RaulRocDaHouse and DJ Soucio will surely go well with the eggnog and perhaps the chestnuts you roasted on an open fire.
7000 W. Palmetto Park Road, Boca Raton. Visit sakrednightclub.com.
They're billing it as the Big Spotlight reunion party. Sakred is charging $10 to dance all night to DJ Haitian Mike and DJ Manny Mix.
