Apothecary 330 Is Fort Lauderdale’s New Secret Cocktail Bar That’s Serving Up More Than 300 Types of Whiskeys
There’s a speakeasy-inspired bar in downtown Fort Lauderdale, but you won’t find much information on it—and they like it that way.
Apothecary 330 is now serving up craft cocktails (and plenty of whiskey) right next door to the newly opened Pizzacraft, the latest concept by Jey Hospitality.
Situated just a short walk from the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Himmarshee Village, the upscale bar boasts long tufted red leather booths, brick walls, glam chandeliers and an impressive selection of whiskey, bourbon, wine, craft beer and more.
But don’t bother looking for a clearly marked entrance. It doesn’t exist. Guests can enter through a side door located within the pizzeria.
Furthermore, private events and tastings will be reserved for patrons who received special gold coins at the venue’s grand opening on Oct. 15. (Don’t worry, though, frequent customers may still be eligible to receive one of the tokens.)
The mystique doesn’t end there. Unlike other Jey concepts, such as Public House and ROK:BRGR, Apothecary 330 doesn’t have a website or social media presence (save for the occasional mention on Pizzacraft’s account).
“It’s on purpose. Think: Speakeasy,” a Jey Hospitality rep said. “They want it to be found via word of mouth and organically.”
Serving up more than 300 types of whiskeys, Apothecary 330's bar chefs are dedicated to whipping up creative concoctions with all kinds of ingredients. Cocktails—such as the Hemingway Daiquiri (Brugal Dry Rum, Luxardo Maraschino, grapefruit, fresh lime) and The French Connection (barrel-aged Del Maguey mezcal, yellow Chartreuse, aperol, fresh lime)—are priced at $13.30.
A final entertainment schedule is still being put in place, but guests can count bands, DJs, open mic nights and jazz among the options.
Apothecary 330 isn’t the only 1920s-themed bar generating buzz in the area as of late.
The Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale is expected to open a Prohibition era-themed restaurant in November. Burlock Coast, named for the burlock bag that bootlegger Bill McCoy used to transport his rum overseas during the Prohibition era, will feature an indoor/outdoor bar, a marketplace offering artisanal goods, and a menu that relies on ingredients from local farmers and fishermen.
