Ten Best Bars for Watching Singer/Songwriters in Broward and Palm Beach Counties

Whether in a tiny pub no one knows about with enough smoke to smell up your clothes for a week or a hipster spot working its hardest to deviate from the mainstream, budding singer/songwriters have to get their start somewhere.

And who knows? The musically inclined weekly performer at Dada may be a headlining act one day. As part of the music scene here in South Florida, we actively support these aspiring stars in the best way we know how -- by guzzling booze and yelling "right on" at the stage.

If you'd like to join in on the action and catch a few local musicians who write their own songs before they make it big, here are ten of the best bars or restaurants where you can watch singer/songwriters in Broward and Palm Beach counties.

10. Beat Cup Café

Artsy décor and the fact that it's a café? The Beat Cup screams "songwriter heaven." It may look like a regular coffee establishment, but really, it's so much more. It's a haven for creativity that locals can listen in on.

At the Beat Cup Café, you can get your hair done at Salon Resta next door, gorge on empanadas at the same time you're chugging a capp or frappe while checking out bands like Hollywood's Beach Day and Boca's Pretty Girls.

It's a homey spot for local acts to earn their chops or get a little wild; they've even hosted a "spontaneous" jazz release party at Beat Cup.
