Open Mic Night: Every Thursday at 9 p.m.
Having experienced the splendor of this particular venue firsthand, we can assure you, this place is the real deal. Professional grade sound, spacious interior and consistently superior acts. Kilmo, the owner, can also be seen on occasion, performing with his band Kilmo and The Killers.
9118 W State Rd 84, Davie
Open Mic Night: Alternating Tuesdays at 9 p.m.
Stage 84 is not one of the larger venues in town, but its reputation among the locals makes it a definite must on your list of places to play. Just don't be surprised when you hear yourself say "The stage looked a bit bigger on their website." On a side note, the host of the open mic has played with Van Morrison. Just sayin'.
