At the start of every week, The Weekend Concierge checks out the live music calendar to see who is playing where on Friday and Saturday nights and prepares a list of ten recommended spots to catch live music around town.  The lists consists of some of the favorite local spots for watching cover bands in and around Fort Lauderdale.  Preference is given to venues which offer live music on both Friday AND Saturday nights.  Consistency is extremely important when booking quality entertainment. People should feel confident that the managers who book the bands for these bars and restaurants know how to seek out artists that will entertain their customers.

The list is presented in alphabetical order by city so no preference is given over the first versus last venue listed.  The Weekend Concierge strives to find great venues in the North and South end of Broward and sometimes miscounts so you may find a few extra venues listed now and again.  Since not all venues have their shows listed far enough in advance so this list is a further incentive to venues to ensure that their listings are up to date whenever possible.  In addition to the names of the venues, cities, and bands playing Friday and Saturday, the list also gives you a quick look at which places allow smoking indoors versus those that are smoke-free.

While this list is a great place to start your weekend planning, be sure to follow it up by checking out the complete hour by hour listing of live bands in and around town on the  LIVE MUSIC EVENTS CALENDAR.
