A New Speakeasy Set To Open In Downtown Fort Lauderdale

Speakeasies are making a comeback. The Hideaway is the newest to hit Fort Lauderdale, and will be unveiled on Dec. 13.

Located in the classic Bryan Building, which is listed in the National Historic Registry, The Hideaway will serve artisanal cocktails, 30 varieties of craft beers, a large whiskey selection and a rotating counter-style menu.

The cocktails are made from fresh fruits and artisan-crafted syrups, such as blueberry basil and honey pineapple. Signature drinks include The Hideaway, made from Bulleit Bourbon, strawberry and blueberry basil syrup and lemon juice; The Shepherd, mixed with Grey Goose, St. Germain, blueberry basil syrup and lemon juice; and the McCrory, which includes Knob Creek 100, Angostura bitters, filthy cherry and an orange twist. Food will be served at the bar starting in January.

The Hideaway features an authentic lounge, refurbished and reclaimed decor, stamped tin ceilings and custom period furniture. 

National Historic Registry

The Bryan Building was built in 1913 for Thomas Bryan, a member of one of Fort Lauderdale’s most notable pioneer families. It was also one of the first hotels in Fort Lauderdale’s original downtown district, and one of the initial commercial buildings constructed after the famous 1912 fire. 

The Hideaway will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 5 p.m. to 4 a.m.
