Sharkeys Pub And Grill

Key Largo, FL 33037
Once you’ve had a successful day fishing off the Florida Keys, this beachfront pub and grill offers to “cook your catch.” Sit back and relax in a beach casual atmosphere while dining on the “freshest local caught fish available” and watching the boats go by. Shoot pool and throw darts to live music, or select a tune from the jukebox. With a link to the Internet, patrons can play just about any song they like. A little hard to find, Sharkeys is located on the canal side of Key Largo Harbor just past Marina Del Mar.
McSorley’s Beach Pub
837 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd.
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304
This Irish pub has the best rooftop lounge overlooking the beach in Fort Lauderdale. McSorley’s invites guests to “get crazy and let loose with a bunch of friends.” In addition to enjoying the beautiful view, you can play beer pong in your swimsuit and dance the night away to your favorite music on the jukebox. Tunes range all the way from the ’50s up to current hits. While there, you also might want to savor a pint of their world-class Guinness or McSorley’s Pale Ale.
826 E. Elkcam Circle
Marco Island, FL 34145
The liberal sprinklings of sand on the floor make entering the Sand Bar feel like you’ve never left the beach. While there, you can sample menu items such as the famous Fingers and Toes (aka fish and chips). Then watch the sporting event of your choice on one of forty TVs, including three 80″ LED HDTVs. The tables have convenient portable speakers. Or select a wide range of songs from the jukebox, which can also be played on your phone using an app.

1903 Hollywood Blvd.
Hollywood, FL 33020
Named “Best Bar in Broward” three years running, Whiskey Tango sticks to a timeless old-fashioned model for classic American bars and grills. Its popularity could be due to Rock Star Karaoke (where patrons get to sing with a live band), or thirty-two big screen TV’s to ensure you don’t miss a second of the big games. Add to that poker, pool tables, a stage for live music and free WiFi. Last but not least, select just about any song you want from the Touch Tunes jukebox. All these activities take place in the largest outdoor venue in historic Downtown Hollywood.
The Le Tub Saloon
1100 N. Ocean Drive
Hollywood, FL 33019
As the name implies, bathtubs are the decorating theme at this lounge that began as a gas station. In 2006, GQ Magazine named its burger #1 in the nation. The management is grateful for the people who appreciate the food and atmosphere which took four years and a lot hard of work to establish. But Le Tub also considers the computerized jukebox and pool tables just as important as the burgers. With no overt advertising, for the past thirty-two years, locals have found Le Tub while boating past on the Intercostals Waterway or heard about it through word-of-mouth.
