Fort Lauderdale

iStock International
Wild life in Broward County ranges from the kind you find in the Everglades to an increasingly diverse scene that has moved beyond the screamin'-spring-break vibe to encompass everything from the divey to the debonair. Sure it ain't quite South Beach, but trust us, you'll still have more than a blast here.

Fort Lauderdale Nightlife

Boom

If the urge to dance strikes, skip over to Boom to shake your booty to today’s hottest, dj-spun dance tracks. The dark, two-story disco overlooks a plaza filled with gay-friendly restaurants and shops.

Elbo Room

A beach institution since 1938, the last throwback to the city's raucous spring break days still packs 'em into its two-story space with rockin' cover bands and devil-may-care attitude.

The Poor House

No attitude in sight, just solid live local musicians and plenty of beer – a respite from the trendy Riverwalk-area clubs that surround it.
