Whiskey Blue in the W Fort Lauderdale Hotel is arguably the most stunning lounge in Broward County. Supermodel Cindy Crawford’s husband and nightlife impresario, Rande Gerber, is behind the chic concept, and the high standards for ambiance, service and fun really show. The spacious yet cozy design of the lounge makes it one of those places where it is hard not to meet new people – meet and greets just happen.

Segafredo L’Originale is literally the first Segafredo to come to Florida. The original really holds strong with a packed house indoors and outdoors on nearly any night – even in Miami’s summer off season. This is always a hot spot for singles and Valentine’s Day is no exception. On paper, it reads to be a cafe with light fare and an extensive cocktail list. The dress code bar is set high to South Beach chic and it has a lounge atmosphere with great local DJs at the turntables every night.
