In their own words: After an unwelcome hiatus, South Beach’s famous Palace Bar has reopened at a new location and will once again be home to glittering queens and drag performances. “It’s about —— time!” performer Tiffany T. Fantasia said. NBC 6 received the exclusive reveal, which was broadcast on their 11pm newscast. The new Palace Bar location is on 11th Street and Ocean Drive – only two blocks away from where it once was. Palace Bar has replaced the Amarillo South Beach bar and grill.
“I love this new spot. It’s bigger. It’s more set-up for the types of shows that we do,” performer Joanna James said. “We’re still going to be out there on the sidewalk gathering in tourists, but we got more space here and, it’s a step up. It’s a little bit more glamorous.” – Drinks, music and food paired with world-renowned drag performances made the popular spot previously on 12th Street and Ocean Drive a staple for South Beach pride.
TripAdvisor Review: “Friends took us here on a Friday night to experience a little Cuban culture. While the restaurant bar scene was amazing, it was the live band outside that made the evening for us. It is obvious that this is a locals place. The music was amazing and the dancing was contagious. Oh yes . . . great drinks too! Lots of fun!!!”
Fort Lauderdale Bachelorette Party Ideas
In their own words: Once in a blue moon the stars align. Something new and epic arrives on the scene and changes everything. When the doors opened at Stache in November of 2013, that special something occurred.
Stache is new and fabulous. It’s where the Taste Makers of Palm Beach, Miami and Fort Lauderdale choose to play. Stache will infuse you with the intimate energy of a 1920’s Speakeasy. The scene is mysterious and relaxed, yet curious and upbeat. It’s a place to escape…a swanky downtown drink haven where the walls are warmed with plush tapestries and the drink menu is ﬂush with high-end portables.
At Stache, you’ll come to appreciate an elegant twist on boutique drinks and whiskeys. We take pride in our beautifully crafted cocktails and our craft bartenders will revive your appreciation for the true art of mixology. In addition to perfectly poured cocktails, we have an impressive selection of quality craft beer and wine. Be sure to take notice of our champagnes, all of which have been expertly selected for discriminating palates.
The real game-changer though is in the music. We rock a crossover format and we do it like nobody else can. We seamlessly blend Classic Rock/Funk/Soul/R&B spanning the last six decades to the newest of Indie & Electronic/Tech House. You can count on us to play the music you like to hear, and we’ll challenge you to keep up with what we know is on the brink.
The Nuts & Bolts: we’re a premier, mid-size 5,000 sq/ft, 2 level-3 bar boutique, entertainment and music venue located in Downtown Ft Lauderdale.

In their own words: The Castle opened on Guavaween in 1992 as a small saloon with a determined goal: create a great place that all of our friends would like to visit.
Adding in the idea of strong drinks, from a diverse selection of single malt scotches, small batch bourbon, aged tequila and a eclectic mix of beers from around the world didn’t hurt either. A killer jukebox supplied the music for a few years, before Dj’s were added to spice up the varied genre’s that the Castle royalty required.
Since then, there has been many changes but the goals are still the same.
Yelp Review: “My first Sip-n-Paint experience was intoxicatingly fun. Ok, excuse the pun …
Of course, the artist attendant was super accommodating, thankfully, my area was already setup. The artist attendant helped me into my apron and I received one drinking ticket which of course, a Mimosa is perfect on a Saturday afternoon. The artist attendant help me catch up, you select your paint colors and dab them on a plate used as your palette. Our art teacher took her time and both made sure to walk the room to provide extra help or tips.
It’s really cool you can “bump up” or customize your piece of wood art too. They’re so helpful and friendly which helps cut the edge for anyone that may feel overwhelmed. Halfway through we get an artist break to replenish our liquids, snack or just to mingle around with your group or meet new people. I was surprised how nice and supportive people you never met before are, perhaps, it’s the atmosphere.
While you paint, they play some cool tunes and with drink in hand.. well, it’s hard not to loosen up and your creative side seeps out onto the wood or canvas. In my case, we selected the class painting “Welcome Home” wreath on wood. It was great to see how each art turned out.
In the class, I met many other people either part of a group of friends, mom & daughter, grandma and grandchild, or just individuals by themselves… well, it was a pretty fun class and Budget friendly too.
Definitely a 5 star first time experience for me.”
In their own words: Kaleisia is a name that combines the words ‘kaleidoscope’ and ‘Asia’. Kaleidoscope represents the infinite varieties of tea around the world. Asia is for tea’s Asiatic origins.
It started with a wild idea — the idea that we could cultivate a community focused around artfully-prepared, loose leaf tea. How could we spread our love for this Eastern ritual, share and spread its natural health properties that have made our own lifestyle more enjoyable and rewarding every day? Where do we begin? We simply had to begin somewhere, and gave our small idea a home in Tampa in April 2005.
Since opening our doors in 2005, we’ve celebrated nine anniversaries, hosted gatherings small and large, organized fundraisers, received press recognition and more. But most importantly, we’ve grown into an oasis for our “CommuniTEA“. We’ve connected with individuals, families, and small businesses who believe in succeeding together. Year after year, we continue to spread our ever-growing love for tea, and what was once a wild idea is now a beloved, daily experience shared by many.
And the best part of our story? We’re all in this together.
In their own words: The Brew Bus fermented in 2011 when our Founder Anthony Derby was a student at The University of Colorado. When he tried to visit 3 breweries in one day he quickly realized the need for a transportation service.

Today, the good times continue to roll with our own independent brewery and tasting room.
