Green Room Is Now Called Stache, Offers a "Better Experience for Everybody"

The rumors of Green Room closing have been flying around for months now. News of a mysterious new Fort Lauderdale spot Stache have been surfacing for almost as long. But no one knew what was really up until very recently. We spoke with owner of Green Room, and the whole Revolution complex, Jeff John on what is actually happening at the venue. Turns out, Green Room is getting something akin to a nightlife sex change and rebranding as Stache, a 1920s speakeasy with cocktails of the fancy, artisanal sort.

"We are not trying to lose anything that Green Room stood for, in terms of art, music, shows, and talent," John assures, "All of that is going to be incorporated into Stache." They're throwing cash at the space to make it a prettier place to party. There may be changes in decor, the addition of mixology, happy hours, and an early tapas menu, but the artistic and indie vibe of Green Room will remain. It seems like John and his partner in this venture Mykel Stevens -- formerly of the fantastic long-running Miami Beach-to-Miami fete Back Door Bambi -- are trying to bring a bit of the Broken Shaker energy North to Fort Lauderdale.

"If New York City, Miami, Chicago, a lot of these other big cities are doing it, it's only a matter of time before the small cities start incorporating these things." John says of the changes. "I'm trying to be on the forefront while staying true to what we are."

The problem I have with Stache is when I'm across the tracks I can hit Yolo, Vide, and O Lounge with one valet stop. When I cross the train tracks I'd have to deal with Scarlett's strippers, Euro strippers (lol), and all of the drunks and d-bags from rest of Las Olas.

I'd also like to avoid the Rev Live crowd if I'm doing bottle service.

#justsayin... You had a good thing going, when I want to bust out the AMEX I'll probably keep on going across the tracks.

Green room has betrayed a hugely loyal customer base by doing away with our nights and then basically calling us trashy. The local musician, artist, crafter, club kid scene has supported this venue for two solid years. Your money grubbing will be your undoing, enjoy your failure. No one wants your dumb chipped ice and pretension. We all hope you choke.

"We are not trying to lose anything that Green Room stood for, in terms of art, music, shows, and talent," Well then maybe you shouldn't have given a big middle finger to your usuals, you know, the artists, musicians and performers who made your club a profitable Friday/Sat. night in a sea of Fist pumpers and hipster trash.

For one, that's not an official picture. Two, you expect us to believe after "throwing money at the venue" and "hiring a professional mixologist" that the drinks are still going to be cheap? Sounds to me like your trying to beat Off the Hookah, Lazerwolf,  and a number of other "hipster targeting" bars at their own game? Good luck with that man, cause we're not going to pay ridiculous prices and covers for a bar that was free to us, regardless of the facade you put on it. Major Fail.

Wow, is that an official photo of what the drinking den will look like? Looks like it will be a pretty hip and swinging place. I hope people go and have a good experience there. Hopefully it will be mainly rich people with money to spend. This is a groundbreaking idea.
