Revolution Live

100 SW 3rd Ave. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312 | Fort Lauderdale | 954-449-1025

Location Description:

Formerly the Chili Pepper and before that the Edge, this spot has hosted some of the best bands to come through South Florida. The three levels (floor, balcony, and upper balcony) allow for ample standing room to watch your favorite bands. The décor is reminiscent of socialist propaganda (viva la Revolution!), but it's a little more subtle than Palm Beach County's indie-rock staple Propaganda. Drinks will cost you, but the atmosphere, standing room, and powerful air conditioning more than make up for it.
