A Hotel Insider on Where to Meet Singles, Get a Cup of Coffee and Get into Trouble in Fort Lauderdale

Looking to make the most of a trip to Fort Lauderdale? This city-by-the-beach has tons to offer, if you know where to search — which is why we asked Philipp Drachenberg, guest experience manager at the gorgeous Four Seasons Fort Lauderdale for all his best recommendations. Just opened in March, the chic new hotel has interiors by Tara Bernerd, whose portfolio suitably emphasizes her experience with yachts — think gleaming wood, soft colors and lots of warm textures. (It’s beautiful.) 

Whether you’re flying in from out of state or Ubering up from Miami, consider this your cheat sheet for a superlative Fort Lauderdale experience. 

InsideHook: Where do singles hang out? 

Philipp Drachenberg: The Wharf Fort Lauderdale is a casual open-air space on the Las Olas Riverfront and a popular spot to mix and mingle all day and all week long. Locals gather for holidays celebrations, happy hour and themed events, with a lively bar, eats, live music and DJs.

How about a restaurant where only locals go?

Sistrunk Market & Brewery is an up-and-coming, hip food hall located in Fort Lauderdale’s art district and a great place to visit with a group for unique food, craft beer, artisan coffee, local art and live music…it’s all you need for a locals hangout.
