Fort Lauderdale’s Neat New Spot

Just a few steps from Quarterdeck on 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale, you can find a secluded bar with the elusive feel of a Prohibition-era speakeasy. Whiskey Neat debuted on Fourth of July weekend with little fanfare and an overwhelmingly positive response from patrons quick to call this spot their new go-to. The location is the brainchild of Trent O’Connor and James Flanigan, whose father founded the neighboring Quarterdeck franchise.

Guests can cozy up to the extensive bar to enjoy inventive cocktails, over 200 whiskeys and complimentary tapas. Behind the bar rests a 17-foot shelving unit housing the many bottles of whiskey and backlit by alluring red lights. Bartenders use a rolling ladder to reach each customer’s whiskey of choice.

The cocktail menu includes unique creations like the Jack D. Armstrong made with High West Double Rye, chocolate bitters, brown sugar, Filthy Black Cherry and smoked orange zest poured into a cedar-smoked glass. Ask for something sweet and you’ll get the Pink Lady with Tito’s Vodka, lemon juice, spooned honey, raspberries and a healthy serving of prosecco to top it off.

Those looking for a more lively atmosphere can sip their drinks in the furnished courtyard joining the Quarterdeck and Whiskey Neat locations. On any given night, guests can enjoy live music from local bands or an on-site DJ.
