Champagne lovers and cocktail connoisseurs flock to Fort Lauderdale for Friday Happy Hour at Bar Stache

We couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw Bar Stache’s, 109 SW 2nd Ave., new Friday line-up: $99 bottles of Krug and half-priced craft cocktails from 5 – 9 p.m. Krug is arguably one of the best Champagnes in the world and generally comes with a price tag of more than $300. In theory, this is an opportunity to unwind with a 3-for-1 night soaked in bubbles. If you’re craving a more potent start to the weekend, half-priced cocktails could help.  

At 9 p.m., DJ C2 spins “electro swing jazz” while a set of burlesque stars perform. 

“Black Friday,” what the venue refers to as the No. 1 counterculture dance party in South Florida, takes over from 1 – 4 a.m. Expect music ranging from Depeche Mode to Bauhaus courtesy of Mike Linder (DJ LinderSmash), Lorenzo Fernandez (DJKaos), and Jonny Veo.
