A Night Out on the Town in Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood

By: Kara Franker


The Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood area has something for everyone, whether you're hitting the arts and entertainment district on Hollywood Beach, or strolling Fort Lauderdale's Downtown Riverwalk or dining at a hot spot on Las Olas Boulevard.

Experience the miles of golden soft sands and and gorgeous blue waterways during the day, then spend a night out on the town with friends. 

My night out began with a glass of wine at a new blow dry bar and ended with a spectacular charity gala on Hollywood Beach. Are you familiar with this concept of a blow dry bar? If you haven't tried it yet, you must!

JustAir is the perfect place to start your night because you can breeze in to get your hair done (in under an hour) and sip champagne or a cappuccino while you're getting ready. I worked all day and didn't have time to go home and do my hair before the charity gala that evening, so I kicked back with a glass of wine and let Grace Welte, my stylist, give me a complete blow out. It saved me a ton of time and it's a fun way to get ready with friends. 

Fort Lauderdale socialites Brooke Gettler and Nicole Carner opened JustAir because they were fed up with high-maintenance salon visits and wanted to give women the opportunity to start their night out being pampered and ready to look fabulous without all the fuss. 

I asked the two of them for recommendations on where to go for a fun night out. Some of their favorite hot spots include grabbing a glass of champagne at O-Lounge, dinner at Yolo and then heading down to American Social on Las Olas Boulevard for after-dinner drinks. 

With so much to do in Fort Lauderdale, check out the official site of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitor's Bureau.
