The Keg on Sixth Is on Trend and Off the Beaten Path

Categories: Review

The Keg aims to cater to a wide range of customers, from local beer geeks to workers from nearby Port Everglades to airline and yacht crews. Carmichael and McNerney, both Irish expats, met about 15 years ago while working at 17th Street Causeway's Waxy O'Conners, a favorite hangout among the yachtie set.

The pair parted ways, moving on to different bars in the area. Carmichael spent time at the Dubliner Fort Lauderdale, while McNerney most recently managed American Social.

About nine months ago, the former coworkers randomly bumped into each other at Tap 42; both happened to be trying to find locations to open relaxed bars with good food and craft beers.
"We were discussing similar concepts between each other," says McNerney. "We've both been working in pubs since we were about 15, and we always wanted to do our own bars. We decided to do it together."

After bringing on investors in the form of longtime friends Peter Moran and Nick Lindell, both marine-industry professionals, they set to work. About four months later, they found their location, and a new craft beer eatery off the beaten path was born.

The Keg on Sixth is located at 3218 SE Sixth Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-765-3473, or visit thekegon6th.com.

Servers un-hospitable, prices high for where you are, it's not Lincoln Rd. If that's all they have they better hire some T&A for servers..

......................well poor service is the NUMBER ONE complaint of visitors and guests (TOURISTS) in ZAGATs and on YELP in broward county

trouble is the compensation is LOW and trained knowledgable and educated people are NOT available here in FT LIQUORDALE at the retail BIZ level so this area doesn't ATTRACT the good people unless it's DURING SEASON

so that leaves LOCAL YOKELs who for the most part don't cut it (the places i frequent i know who is serving me and many if not most are long time dedicated people who offer good service through experience with me as a patron)
