New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

You've exited the jailhouse, and with just a few steps in the throwaway sandals so kindly provided, you've crossed the street — into the Downtowner Saloon's lot. Because that insufferable block of cement has just vanished from view, dine outside and relish the backdrop of downtown's unadulterated skyline. This coveted seat is far removed from the cold metal seats of yesteryear. You might have spent yesterday peering through thin slit windows, but now you have the horizon to contemplate: boats cruising under two cotton-candy-pink bridges. Order a cocktail or glass of wine and some food. It's not your last meal; you can come back tomorrow. There's a special no matter which night of the week you get bailed out of jail.

    A great dive bar with lots of crap hanging from the ceiling. Last time I was there some old man was DJing in an Uncle Sam costume. It was ridiculously entertaining. Aside from that, the food is decent bar food. The drinks are great and well-priced. It's low-key, not fancy and an awesome place to booze by the river. You can sit outside too. Best in day time.

    Go especialy to hear Albert Castiglia. He is the best. Can really play that guitar, sing and just have lots of fun listening to him.
