Description

New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

American Social (or AmSo, as it’s been affectionately nicknamed) has proven itself a formidable addition to the nightlife scene for young professionals in Fort Lauderdale, especially in the heart of the tenuous Las Olas strip. By day a trendy lunch spot for the working crowd, at night this craft-beer-centric spot transforms into a full-blown bar, often so packed with good-looking 20- to 30-somethings that it’s hard to make your way back to the restrooms, let alone order a drink. Luckily, with a number of the plush booths sporting their own taps, plus a wall lined with pour-your-own stations, patrons can at least feel as if they have some options other than elbowing their way past all the buff bros and stiletto-sporting blonds crowding the bar. Live acoustic music or a DJ provide the entertainment on most nights, plus the flat-screen-lined bar playing all the best games or fights, has kept this haunt busy week after week. Reminiscent of a social club of yesteryear, with comfy and kitschy Americana-inspired décor, AmSo feels like the type of place the boys would go to see a boxing match and the ladies interested in meeting a Navy man on leave would hang out.

    I can't understand why American Social keeps getting great reviews for their food. Everything they serve is either over- or undercooked slop with no thought or care for taste and originality. The appetizers are thawed and microwaved to perfection and the entrees come slapped together with the same two sides of soggy brown rice or mealy vegetables no matter what type of protein....

  • Rick M. on 06/21/12

    Absolutely the coolest Bar/Restaurant I've been to in a while! The atmosphere is 1 of a kind and the food is fantastic! Great selection of draught beer and you can pour it yourself! Count me in!

  • Howard M. on 01/01/13

    The food's good and they have a pretty deep list of beers. Gets pretty crowded at night.

  • Matt P. on 03/31/13

    Amazing staff and the lockers are spectacular.

  • VisitLauderdale on 03/04/13

    Ladies enjoy FREE Champagne and 1/2 off ANYTHING behind the bar on Wednesdays.

  • Burgers are delicious, and they go for just five bucks on a Monday night. And if you're looking for something on the lighter side, they have a wide array of tasty salads and fresh fish entrĂ©es.
