Lucky's Tavern Replaces Coyote Ugly in Downtown Fort Lauderdale

Categories: Nightlife
Less than a month ago, the supercheesy Coyote Ugly announced its closing, but before the dancing bartenders could unlace their combat boots, a new canine shuffled them out the door. Crowned home of the three-legged dog, Lucky's Tavern is the latest addition to the downtown Himmarshee drinking district.

The interior structure wasn't given much of a face-lift  -- not surprising since it opened so quickly -- but it has been cleaned up quite a bit. Monstrous flat-screen TVs replace the lingerie collection, pirate flags are nowhere to be seen, and the bathrooms have been restored to normal conditions. However, the venue's appearance isn't the only thing that's been spruced up. The staff is mostly male, and there isn't a body-shot-serving, fishnet-wearing bartender in sight. It's safe to say Lucky's is the antithesis of Coyote Ugly.

In addition to an enormous selection of liquors, there are 18 beers on tap, including a few craft brews (and they're not too pricey!). Lucky's Tavern doesn't have any gimmicky concept hiding behind its doors; it's just a simple watering hole to visit with a group of friends for a round of pool, catch a game, and listen to live music.

I stopped by there on Sunday night, I noticed the nice pool table in the back. The staff was nice, the place was clean and there was a good beer selection. I will be back.
