    http://www.achemiami.com This place specializes in puro cubanismo such as Saturday-night cabaret shows that hark back to old Havana. The shows feature comedy and choreographed dancing as part of a full night of entertainment that also includes dinner from the relatively large traditional menu. Local DJs host weeknight parties in the cavernous indoor space, which offers plenty of room for dancing. Read more about Ache Supper Club >>

  • Alabama Jack

    Alabama Jack's

    58000 Card Sound Road Key Largo, FL 33037
    305-248-8741

    http://www.alabamajacks.com Alabama Jacks sets the tone for an ideal trip to the Keys. Essentially a giant blue fishing shed surrounded by Harleys, it looks like a place that would bubble with trouble. Sounds include a scrappy classic rock/country band, the clinking of Key West Lager and Sunset Ale bottles, and the rumbling of idling boat engines. Inside, there's a sheltered wooden patio dotted with white plastic tables, Hawaiian button-downs, sunburns, bandannas, eclectics, eccentrics, and Old Florida flair. And there's good food. Try the famous conch fritters that come as an appetizer or as a meal for $8.25 (with two sides; we suggest potato salad and onion rings). They're buttery, sweet, massive, meaty, and much more magical than any others in the Magic City. Mahi-mahi is always blackened just right, and if you want fried pub grub, check out the chicken fingers, jalapeño poppers, fried clam basket (half-pound for $6.25), oyster basket ($9.50), and buffalo shrimp ($9.50). You'll want to twirl around on the dance floor, so plan on staying for at least an hour. Or two. Read more about Alabama Jack's >>

  • Alba

Club music sometimes gives way to rock and Latin, depending on the night. The lounge stages special events, and holds semiprivate parties for birthdays and holidays. It's open 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Thursday through Sunday during the summer, and nightly during the season. Be prepared to dress up. Read more about Alba >>

  • Albion Lounge

    Albion Lounge

    1650 James Ave. Miami Beach, FL 33139
    305-913-1000

    http://www.rubellhotels.com This bar and lounge is located in the Albion Hotel on Lincoln Road, a building designed by Art Deco stalwart Igor Polevitzky. The bar specializes in South Beach-themed drinks such as mojitos and stocks a full selection of liquors. Food is limited to appetizers. The hotel is low key and doesn't cater to 24-hour revelers. As a result, the lounge attracts locals looking for a break from the fast track and gives them the chance to mingle with hotel patrons from around the world. It's only two blocks from the beach, but a state of mind away from the bright lights of Ocean Drive. Read more about Albion Lounge >>

  • America

    America's Backyard

    100 SW Third Ave. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312
    954-449-1025

    http://www.myamericasbackyard.com Downtown Fort Lauderdale’s America's Backyard, it turns out, is nothing short of a huge pool party where the pool is swimming with bartenders and the deep end overflows with sparkling alcohol. The pool, AKA the main bar, is a tiled fortress of smiles and cocktails, the centerpiece of this open-air shindig. Wednesday is ladies' night, which means women drink free after 9 p.m. Thursday is College Night, so fill up on $1 drinks and $1 drafts all night, plus $10 unlimited beer pong. That's when alcohol mixes with dance music, rendering otherwise respectable young professionals helpless and desperate to dance on the bar. Read more about America's Backyard >>

    American Social Bar & Restaurant

    721 E. Las Olas Blvd. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
    954-764-7005

    http://www.americansocialbar.com American Social (or AmSo, as it’s been affectionately nicknamed) has proven itself a formidable addition to the nightlife scene for young professionals in Fort Lauderdale, especially in the heart of the tenuous Las Olas strip. By day a trendy lunch spot for the working crowd, at night this craft-beer-centric spot transforms into a full-blown bar, often so packed with good-looking 20- to 30-somethings that it’s hard to make your way back to the restrooms, let alone order a drink. Luckily, with a number of the plush booths sporting their own taps, plus a wall lined with pour-your-own stations, patrons can at least feel as if they have some options other than elbowing their way past all the buff bros and stiletto-sporting blonds crowding the bar. Live acoustic music or a DJ provide the entertainment on most nights, plus the flat-screen-lined bar playing all the best games or fights, has kept this haunt busy week after week. Reminiscent of a social club of yesteryear, with comfy and kitschy Americana-inspired décor, AmSo feels like the type of place the boys would go to see a boxing match and the ladies interested in meeting a Navy man on leave would hang out.

  • The Oar House

    The Oar House

    200 E. McNab Road Pompano Beach, FL 33060
    954-545-0700

    http://www.facebook.com/OarHousePompanoBeach The Oar House looks like a funky little fishing shack and boasts a relaxed vibe to match. This relic of Pompano’s Old Florida past serves up steaks, seafood, and the kinds of dishes one would expect to see in a waterfront spot of this nature. The outdoor covered deck, and a few picnic tables near the canal, are where the action (and the occasional breeze) is at. Check out the regular specials and events such as karaoke, happy hour, in-the-biz deals, and live music. Read more about The Oar House >>

    Area 7

    3809 Powerline Road Fort Lauderdale, FL 33309-5067
    954-561-9134

    http://www.myspace.com/area7musicandale Dark and moody, Area 7 Music and Ale is an off-the-beaten-path kind of hangout for a locals-only crowd. A platform stage surrounded by mirrors near the front door is often occupied by a local rock band trying to make a name for itself. Busty women in corsets fling around the stripper polls and dance in the cages to the alternative music blaring through the speakers. The large wooden bar in the center of the room is filled with tattooed folks sharing stories about being on the road and days gone by. The walls have all the typical bar trimmings, including neon beer signs and electronic dartboards. There are nightly specials throughout the week, including ladies' night and $20 for all you can drink for the guys. Read more about Area 7 >>

  • Art Bar

    Art Bar

    300 SW First Ave. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
    954-525-0044

    http://www.artbarftlauderdale.com It can sometimes seem like Art Bar has more girls in booty shorts working out on the sidewalks of Riverfront than it does patrons enjoying themselves inside the club. Although free entry and free drinks for ladies before 1 a.m. is a pretty good incentive to get both guys and girls through the door, it's a tougher sell to get them to stay there. The interior -- with two levels, draped curtains, and dark mood lighting -- has the look of a smaller-scale South Beach club, though perhaps one that's seen better, less grimy days. The main room has three full-liquor bars with scantily clad bartenders serving some of the most shoddily prepared drinks we've seen, especially the free drinks for the girls. The ratio of alcohol to sugar water is likely to cause diabetes before an actual buzz. Still, the dance floor usually fills out on weekend nights, hosting a crowd of budget-conscious young people booty-shaking to a DJ who plays a mix of Top 40s, dance, and hip-hop. A second, smaller room in the back does offer another dimension to Art Bar, and one could even imagine it being kind of cool in there -- maybe even somewhat “artsy” -- if only the place had the courage to do something slightly out of the box. A Riverfront staple through and through, Art Bar should probably stop living in the past and start catering to the more eclectic, slightly higher-brow demographic of young people that's steadily growing in Fort Lauderdale.

    http://www.myspace.com/clubboom There's always something going on at Boom, whether you're a boy on the hunt for a fellow guy or a girl who just wants to sing karaoke. Boom has two rooms featuring everything from video poker to music videos that play Cher, Lady Gaga, and all of your favorite icons. Bounce from the more subdued bar area in one room to the robust nightlife scene complete with stage in the larger second room. Bulbous white lanterns hang from the ceiling, alone with a robotic-looking metal light fixture. Come for free pool on Wednesday nights or tea dances on Sundays. Read more about Atomic Boom >>

  • Atrio Restaurant & Wine Room at Conrad Miami

    Atrio Restaurant & Wine Room at Conrad Miami

    1395 Brickell Ave. Miami, FL 33131
    305-503-6529

    http://conradhotels.hilton.com Atrio Restaurant is a bit stuffy and serious, but that's not surprising -- it's nestled in the Conrad Miami, a hotel frequented primarily by business travelers. But situated on the 25th floor of the building, within floor-to-ceiling windows and romantic balconies, Atrio boasts a beautiful view of Brickell. The menu and culinary direction, though, have suffered from some chef-shuffling in the past few years. First it produced "Asian-Latin-influenced progressive American cuisine" under the helm of Michael Gilligan, went through a four-month period with no culinary director, and then transferred hands to Jonathan McCann, who produces mainly American comfort food with few flourishes. While hearty but small portions of Angus filet with béarnaise sauce ($36) and roasted halibut served with a polenta cake, fava beans, and radish slaw ($35) are certainly satisfying, the prices suggest more cutting-edge execution or creative ingredient pairing. Some more interesting choices include an appetizer of smoked duck carpaccio served with celery root salad and truffle vinaigrette ($15) and stuffed rabbit saddle that comprises a braised leg, zucchini ribbons, and olive jus ($28).
