Fort Lauderdale Happy Hour Guide

A Fort Lauderdale happy hour guide, from a local.

Share this post

“It’s always happy hour somewhere,” and the heat is quickly approaching. Nothing says summer szn better than grabbing a bite and a refreshing beverage after a long day. I’m taking you from Las Olas to random strip malls in Wilton Manors, Fort Lauderdale Beach to Flagler Village. You’ll find local eateries and watering holes old and new. To outdoor spaces, wine bars, beer joints, and the perfect date night spot, there is something for everyone.

Here’s a list of favorite happy hours in Fort Lauderdale worth noting about — from a local.


4:30 Boardroom Bar

Local-owned 4:30 Boardroom Bar is a casual indoor/outdoor bar with the friendliest people. The decor features an eclectic taste of surf and skateboards, vintage cars, and Star Wars memorabilia with TV’s up in case you want to catch a game (go sports!) Happy hour includes $1 off everything and $2 off all shots. This spot is great after a long day in the sun with a cold one listening to rockabilly, surf, and reggae music.
When: Happy hour Monday through Friday all day until 8 PM.
Where: 3343 NE 32nd Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308
