The Tortuga Music Festival is hitting Fort Lauderdale beach this weekend. And with it comes an eclectic mix of performers, from country music stars like Kenny Chesney to modern hippies like Michael Franti & Spearhead and Ben Harper.

So it should come as no surprise that concertgoers will include a mix of environmentalists, rock aficionados, country fans, and a bunch of people looking to get wasted and have a good time.

Not exactly the champagne-sipping crowd of the W.

That being said, we've decided to compile a list of Fort Lauderdale's best places to party after the festival.

10. Original Fat Cat's For anyone looking to get away from other festivalgoers or the ridiculous tourists of the beach, this could just be your option. Live cover bands, great beer selection, dark atmosphere, and local crowd make this spot a prime location postfestival. For those looking to soak up the booze, the spot does not serve food, but there are multiple greasy options in the downtown vicinity.

9. LuLu's Bait Shack One of the ever-so-slightly less-touristy spots to inhabit Beach Place, Lulu's is a great option for those who want to keep on looking at the ocean. The bar features nightly live music and drink specials -- Saturday night, it's offering $17 Camarena margarita fishbowls and $5 Camarena margaritas. And if you're looking to wash down those fishbowls with a bit of food, the spot serves Cajun-style bar delicacies like catfish fingers ($8.95), blackened chicken nachos ($12.95), and alligator bites ($9.95)
