In addition to the food and drink menus, the tavern entices patrons with special events throughout the week, including live entertainment on Friday and pub trivia on Wednesday.
The humor ambassadors of the Fort Lauderdale Comedy Club stock their Oakland Park stage with snickers and snorts as audiences savor the jokes of headlining local and national comedians. Shirking the detached feel of stuffy theaters, smoky halls, and abandoned wells, Fort Lauderdale Comedy Club grants audiences an intimate standup comedy experience as fans catch every punch line and smell every punch breath. The ever-changing calendar features a solid crew of human antidepressants, such as funnyman and Comedy Central Laugh Riots semifinalist Danny Johnson (January 27–28), who cooks up buffets of hee-haws with his observational humor and everyman appeal. Funny bones flee their ligaments as Shawn Banks (February 10–11) deposits hefty loads of family-fun humor and impressions into his engaging live-wire act. Groups of two or four can chase down meaty laughs with wine and beer or a refreshing, alcohol-free soda. Dress codes are comfortable and casual, and all hecklers will be shunned and turned into chum.
The chefs at The Manor, a trendy nightclub fused with an upscale restaurant, craft a menu of surf-and-turf and elegant fusion cuisine.

Grilled Korean-style short ribs backstroke in a citrus-soy-chili marinade before basking on plates ($11.95), and the raspberry seared scallops partner with mixed greens that add to pulchritudinous stomach-wall gardens ($11.95).

There's a lot to see at Piano Hollywood: rows and rows of wine glasses glinting above the bar, classic Rat Pack photos stretched along the wall, and a bar floor built to resemble piano keys. But the attention
generally drifts to the back of the room, where a stage hosts a rotating lineup of jazz, blues, rock, and spoken-word performances. Music programmer Brendan O'Hara often plays here, and when he's not, he's inviting top-notch musicians he met while spending more than a decade touring throughout the U.S. and the Caribbean.
But if you listen closely, underneath the blare of a trumpet or the beat of a snare drum you'll hear the rhythmic, metallic rattle of cocktails being shaken behind the bar. There, bartenders blend classic old fashioneds and capahrinhas with the exacting nature of a piano player keying an intricate jazz solo. They also prepare locally sourced seasonal drinks?such as a brown-sugar daiquiri with 7-year-aged rum?which are ferried to candlelit tables surrounded by chic white-leather chairs.
The Jumbotron has long been a fixture at stadiums and ballparks. So why not at sports bars?

During the boisterous shows at Sopranos Dueling Piano bar, pianists take the stage and play popular tunes as audience members clap, dance, and sing along. Meanwhile, bartenders dole out 24 varieties of beer and an array of colorful cocktails—including the frozen margarita lauded by reporters from South Florida Sun-Sentinel for providing "the perfect amount of pucker." Servers bustle about the tabletops in the dimly lit space, balancing trays of wings, burgers, and coconut shrimp with sweet-chili dipping sauce.
At Kavasutra, guests chat with friends over cups of kava, a traditional root extract from the South Pacific celebrated for its soothing, sedative effects.

Surrounded by cozy couches and Polynesian-inspired decor, visitors can lounge in an oasis of calm as they make new friends.
Hookahs and hula hoop dancers are common sights at Kaos Ultra Lounge.
