I was there on a Saturday afternoon in January with some friends. The bartender was really friendly and personably, the drinks were relatively well priced, especially compared to the rest of the area. Its a perfect little open air spot right across from the beach. I heard that they had pretty below par bathrooms but, talking to the bartender, we found out that right before we were there they upgraded them, which really showed.
Overall I had a great time here and was very comfortable the whole time. The crowd here was very diverse- all ages, tourists, locals, bikers, couples, big groups, regulars... this bar seemed to have, and welcome everyone.
I will definitely make sure I go back every time i visit Fort Lauderdale.

The Elbo Room has been around since back when Ft. Lauderdale Beach was cool. It's one of the last great dive bars with the nastiest men's room ever, but that is part of the mystique. On the corner of A1A and Los Olas Blvd. this is the heart of Ft. L beach. Come have your favorite beverage and watch the world go by. Fair warning, my wife won't go here with me (although she should because there are many very aggressive "cougars" here looking for a friend). I recommend going on a Friday or Saturday from 5:00 - 8:00 because then you get the beach people and also the parade of automobiles from classics, to low riers to the latest Ferraris and Lamborghinis. After 8pm it can get a little freaky and fights start about 10. Check out their web cams: http://www.elboroom.com/page/roof-cam

They only take cash which is kind of a bummer but otherwise it was fine for stopping in for a beer. They had live music but it was pretty late by the time we got there so the place was just about cleared out and the music was over.
