Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Lodged between the Parlor and Brick Rock Bar, Manual Fatties is a no-frills watering hole in the Riverfront bar scene. A large, metal bar fills one end of the venue, which sports exposed ceilings. A variety of liquor bottles is lined up behind the bar, where massive television screens project music videos, sports happenings, and computer graphics. Opposite the bar top, a series of stools lines a wall of windows, ideal for a bit of people-watching. The décor is minimal and clean, giving off an industrialized feeling, similar to that of a bar in the meat-packing district. Often packed with college crowds, the party usually spills onto the streets outside the bar and rarely provides for a dull moment.
