Best choice for Girls Night Out in northwest Broward?

Looking for good drink choices (we have beer drinkers, wine drinkers and frou-frou martini drinkers included!) and good appetizers, we probably won't order meals, so a place with a bar area...a good place to chat, relax and de-stress, that's a littler nicer than the local Ale House. Thanks!

  1. There's a new Bru's room on hillsboro and 441 with a nice outside bar area. There's also JB's on Hillsboro and Lyons but expect to pay a pretty penny for those cocktails.

    1. You should do Big Bear, Pringle! You could make a res for a bigger party or park it in the bar, there's two bigger tables there that will accommodate 8-10. They have the BEST beer, and I really good apps. I don't usually order entrees there because the apps, salads, sandwiches/burgers, and pizzas are all so good.

      If not there, perhaps a Cajun, Greek or Japanese place? On University in Lauderhill there is a place called Rosey Baby's, a cajun restaurant/bar with great, great, great food and a good beer selection/full bar. I love that joint - crawfish boil, alligator tail, escargo, gumbo, chicken wings, po boys, great pasta, jumbalaya and ettufe. Next door is a Japanese place that's decent with Japanese-style rooms where you sit on the floor. The rooms are semi-private, just make a rez.

      Greek - I've never been to Mykonos, but I've heard it's good. My girlfriend usually goes out with her friends to Taverna Opa, and they like it because of the rowdy, plate-smashing atmosphere and good drinks.

        Big Bear is great....we have been there for lunch with co-workers and it is always good. Do they make martinis there?
        Anyway, thanks to both for the suggestions!

          Yep, they have a full bar and do special martinis. Have fun!
