Briny Irish Club
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Like owner Mike Brennan's other Broward County pubs (Dicey Riley's and the Briny Irish Pubs at Riverfront and in Pompano Beach), Briny Irish Club's design is eclectic. From wall to wall and all across the ceiling, the entire venue is covered with guitars, surfboards, hobby planes, and photos of rock and pop stars from Jerry Garcia to Billy Corgan and Eminem. You could spend an entire night trying to break down the meaning behind this seemingly excessive ornamentation, but it's much more fun to let it fade into the background and have a drink. Besides, the long, broad, dark-wood bartop, where the drinking action happens, has its own allure. The bar's vibe crosses the unbridled energy of downtown Fort Lauderdale's Himmarshee party scene with the propriety of a neighborhood pub. Live bands play on Friday nights, and a VJ plays dance music that's synchronized with all of the bar's flat-screen televisions on Saturday nights. Various drink specials, such as $2 Miller and Bud Light drafts, are on all the time.
