American Social Opens in Brickell: Self-Serve Craft Beer, Burgers, and Sports

Every guy dreams of having a man cave, the kind of place equipped with self-serve craft beer, 25 TVs to properly watch sports games simultaneously without having to lift a finger to change the channel, comfortable seating with plush American flag pillows, and burgers. Lots of them. Sounds like the American dream, huh? It's close, and it's all happening at American Social.

After what seems like ages of anticipation, Fort Lauderdale's popular American comfort gastropub/bar/weekend lounge has opened on the ground floor of the Neo Vertika building (where Waxy's used to be). You know the space -- all 10,000 square feet of it. And now you'll become even more familiar because AmSo (that's what American Social likes to be called) is the kind of place you never want to leave. Not when you've got a gargantuan booth with built-in taps that fits eight people. It's like your home away from home.
