Last Saturday night I went to Ft. Lauderdale Beach, and stumbled upon Rock Bar/Sangrias. It's literally across the street from the sand, the seats are outdoors (with a roof above of course), and inside is a dance floor. They have food, drinks, and even hookah! I ordered their strawberry flavored hookah, and really enjoyed it. Everyone at the table gets their own "straw" to use. I also ordered nachos, some tacos, and a blue sky margarita (pictured below). They have a 2 for $25 deal on the margaritas, so if you can't drink two 45 oz. margaritas, bring a friend so they can drink the other one. If you would like more information or to see their menu, visit their website.
