“Worth a Try”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Stopped here a few times during our recent visit to Fort Lauderdale. One night it was pretty quiet (on a Thursday) and we hung out for a drink. There was a DJ there but hardly any people.The second time we stopped because we heard it would be busier. There is a second and third floor which were open the second time we stopped. The second floor had an outdoor balcony area and a DJ and dance floor. The bartenders on the 2nd floor were very slow and didn't really care to serve drinks or have any urgency to wait on customers. The third floor is a roof top bar which was pretty fun with more music and the bartenders seemed to be better. Drinks are a little overpriced, but I would say this place is worth a try for a fun night in Fort Lauderdale. I also think it might be fun during the day if the rooftop bar is open because it has a great view of the ocean!

“Nice Beach Bar!”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Drinks are delicious, not too expensive, and staff is friendly!! When we went, there was live music! Also, convenient if you want to bring a few drinks across the street to the beach :)

“Great great bar and staff”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Just left Fort Lauderdale after being there for 3 days. We literally spent most of our time at this bar because it was where we had the most fun on a consistent basis. Me and my girlfriend got engaged while being in Fort Lauderdale and the bartenders Nicole and Sam made us feel like part of their family. We had a friend that was in a wheelchair and they would go out their way to accommodate and make sure she was taking care of in any eay possible. Will be going back everytime im in Fort Lauderdale.

P.S. Thanks Nicole and Sam was great meeting you

“Great place for drinks”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We had drinks on the roof here before going out to eat. You cannot beat the view! They have a great happy hour too; very affordable. The bartenders are friendly and great at giving recommendations for places to see.

“Brought back memories”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I went here for drinks while on vacation and had a blast. We were lucky to get seats at the bar as the place was packed. The music was so fun. Brought back memories of college. We didn't have any food so no comment there. The service was great and bartenders were a lot of fun.
