I didn't expect much knowing this was a Ft. Lauderdale Icon and got less then I expected. It's filthy. Smells like stale beer. The crowd is poor white trash. It's on a great corner at the beach but is teaming with drunks. They spill out so much that they have staff to contain them. It had the usual drunk who... More

This establishment is literally the perfect place to come if you just want to go to the beach and still be close to some live music and adult drinks. It is always busy but service is fast and they have great live music. If you live in Fort Lauderdale and prefer to adhere to the flip flops and board shorts... More

This is not a restaurant, people don't go here to eat, this is a heavy duty Beach Bar with life music, and plenty of beer and even shots on draft. Elbo Room is famous for being the bar on one of the main corners of the center of the Fort Lauderdale party mile. You order something, pay, drink, enjoy the... More

Everyone that comes to Ft. Lauderdale Beach most-likely visits the Elbo Room. When you're at the beach and it starts raining locals and visitors crowd in wearing only their bathing suits. It's a 2-story dive bar, with live music, that's been there since the 60's. They filmed the movie,"Where the Boys Are", with Connie Frances, who still shows up to... More

Throw back to earlier days - the crowd is fun, the music is great - a must visit for anyone heading to Fort Lauderdale...

Right on the corner of US 1, right across from the beach. Almost always live music, or at minimum good background. One of the most popular hangouts at the beach and usually packed with people having a good time. Many locals mixed in with tourists.

This is a popular bar with live rock music almost all day. It was recommended not to eat the food here nor use the bathrooms so be prepared to hold it in. LOL

Visited this bar recently while exploring the beach strip. As others mentioned, been there forever but fun all the same. Music was great, two guys on guitars. Beer was cold!! Very busy. Great for people watching!! Would definitely go back again!!

I liked that this is the bar that was featured in the movie, "Where's the Boys Are" Starring Connie Francais back in the 1960's. With that being said, it looks the same.... no change.. I think some of the original furniture is still there and maybe some of the dirt. It's got cool vibes, a good band was playing but... More
