Good place for small birthday celebration in Ft. Lauderdale???
I am turning 29... no big event, but I am inviting 10 of my closest friends out the weekend of Jan 4th for a fun birthday celebration. I don't want it to be too wild of an atmosphere like a bar, but I do want fun, exciting atmosphere! On the beach, or vibrant atmosphere of a hotel restaurant, or a fun restaurant with music or a small dancing area. Last year I had it at Riverhouse downtown, and that was fun, but this year I am looking for a little more fun. I had a very low key, mellow christmas without my family and I am up for a smile for my birthday!!! Please help!!! You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with comments!!!
Start at the Samba Room for happy hour and have the mojitos (the best I've had in Ft. Lauderdale) then walk across to Timpano's. Their menu is varied with all price points. Definitely have the mussels. Delish! You can make a meal out of a salad and appertizers here. The flat bread is also very good. They have live jazz several nights a week and it's always lively and fun. This is where I go for a girl's night out. Have fun!
