People who come to town always ask me, Dean what is a really authentic fun local experience in Fort Lauderdale? I seem to go back to the same place over and over again, The Elbo Room Bar on Fort Lauderdale Beach. The Elbo Room is located in a great spot for people watching, at the corner of Las Olas Boulevard and A1A across the street from the beach. Almost every visitor, who I have taken there previously asks to be brought back for another Rock and Roll time at the Elbo. Because that is what the bar is all about – live music. I am into classic rock and love hearing the bands which run from about 11 am until the early morning. And it’s not only rock with bands coming in and out switching sets sometimes you get Country or Alternative to change it up. The place feels like the ultimate dive bar with walls adorned with old license plates, pictures and memorabilia.
