This place is hip. The barmaid (Nicole) was lovely. Bloke place playing the guitar was fun and engaged with the crowd very well. Beer was good value. Very nice to sit outside and people gaze☺️ The beach is across the road.

This is a place where u stop and have a beer- just because. It's one of those places you just have to visit when u are in ft. Lauderdale. Great people watching. Good location. Decent beach prices. The bands or musicians are usually very loud- keep drinking and you won't notice!

The Elbo Room is an old bar on Ft. Lauderdale Beach that has not changed in decades. It is the same cramped party bar as it was way back. It has two floors with rock music on the first floor (tonight a live band) and rap upstairs. A bottled beer is $5.50. Inside tonight on the first floor was packed... More

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...
