* Disclaimer: Best Bars for Bands in Fort Lauderdale is updated weekly and solely the opinion of The Weekend Concierge based on (1) a history of these venues hiring quality talent on a consistent basis, week after week. (2) Hiring bands for both Friday and Saturday nights and (3) Having a stage that is unobstructed, giving both the band and the spectators the best possible “concert” experience.  This list is provided in alphabetical order by city so there should not be any preference given to the first venue listed over the last.

There are many other places to go for live music than the ten shown, however, we try to give you at least one venue for every part of Broward County.   You will find a complete list of other suggested venues in the Bar & Restaurant directory.  If you have any suggestions, please contact us.
