Visiting Fort Lauderdale is a laid-back fun in the sun type of experience. There is so much to enjoy, with miles of white sand beaches, great food, outdoor activities, and indoor cultural events.
At night, the city comes alive. Nightclubs, bars, live bands, stage shows, adventurous escape venues, and spas are just some of the fun things to do in Fort Lauderdale at night.
Let’s take a look at the top seven ways to have fun at night when you are visiting Fort Lauderdale.
1) Fort Lauderdale Bar Crawl
A bar crawl is an exciting experience whether you are on vacation or just want that vacation feeling, and Ft. Lauderdale has some of the best bars in Florida!
Start your evening of shenanigans at the Bamboo Tiki Bar on the beach with a tropical drink and a casual dinner. From there, it’s a short 15-minute walk to the Blue Jean Blues club to party with some fantastic music.
Next, it’s a little over a mile to the Kelley Brothers Irish Pub, so you may want to take a cab. The Kelley Brothers Pub offers a lively atmosphere with Guinness on tap, craft beers, cocktails, and live music on select nights. Check the online event calendar for poker nights, too.
You’ll need to hop back in a cab to get to your next fun bar. The Park and Ocean Gastropub in Fort Lauderdale’s Birch State Park is just a 10-minute drive south of the Kelley Brothers Irish Pub. The menu here is Caribbean and Southern influenced, plus they offer craft beer from their in-house brewery. Live bands are on tap on Saturdays and Sundays.
2) Escape Room Fort Lauderdale
Downtown Fort Lauderdale has over 15 escape rooms, all within a one-hour drive. If you are looking for something to do that’s a little bit different, a night of fun-filled breakout adventure is one of those fun activities you will talk about for years.
Some of the adventurous escape venues in Fort Lauderdale include:
Boxroom Escape Games Hollywood
Escapology Fort Lauderdale
The Jet Ski Escape
Red Button Escape
The Master Escape
3) Las Olas Boulevard
Exploring the festive and exciting Las Olas Boulevard is one of the top things to do in Fort Lauderdale. Las Olas stretches from east to west between Fort Lauderdale Beach and Andrews Avenue, downtown.
Las Olas plays dual roles as a popular shopping district by day and party central at night. Restaurants run the gamut from flip-flops casual to elegant fine dining.
After dark, the palm trees along the boulevard glow in twinkling lights, and nightclubs come to life. Popular dance clubs include Yolo, Hidden Garden, Secret 1309 Las Olas, and America’s Backyard.
4) Broward Center At Fort Lauderdale
The Broward Center for the Performing Arts offers a night of fantastic quality entertainment in Fort Lauderdale. Concerts, Broadway musicals, plays, comedians, concertos, and dance shows are just some of the performances you can enjoy there.

6) Fort Lauderdale Culture Room

This intimate concert hall holds 650 people in a general admission standing-room-only venue. The stage is elevated to give everyone an outstanding view of the band.
Most guests will be standing on the main floor of this awesome place, although there is also a balcony, bar, and restrooms to the right of the stage. Purchase tickets online and arrive at the door one hour before the door opening time to get your preferred spot.
