Bar Crawl Fort Lauderdale Style – By Water Taxi

Bar Crawl Fort Lauderdale Style – By Water Taxi

Looking for something different to do in Fort Lauderdale on your day off? The Water Taxi will take you to some of the best spots around for great food and drink. Who would’ve ever thought, the Water Taxi is not just for tourists! If you don’t have access to a boat but want to see the city from a whole different perspective this is perfect for you.

You’ll have a fun filled bar crawl in the sun that will leave you with an unforgettable day. Below we’ll list our recommended route that we’ve perfected (and may have done once or twice when we’re not busy with our customers)…


Stop 1 (Starting Point): Downtowner Saloon




We recommend starting at the Downtowner Saloon, they have great food and drinks on the water overlooking Fort Lauderdale’s beautiful new river. They also have plenty of free parking for patrons where you can leave your vehicle during your adventure. The downtowner offers a variety of menu items including a raw bar, great lunch and dinner options. We recommend the spicy tuna wontons or fried meatballs and an ice cold beer to start things off.

Downtowner Saloon – 10% Off (food only)

10 S New River Dr E, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301

(954) 463-9800


Stop 2: 15th Street Fisheries


15th Street Fisheries


Next stop is 15th Street Fisheries. This is one of Fort Lauderdale’s landmarks with great views of the intracoastal and the Fort Lauderdale Marina. The fresh Mahi Tacos are excellent here with a nice cocktail, and if you want to have some fun buy some bait and feed the tarpon!

Ask Water Taxi crew for coupons.


Stop 3: Bahia Cabana

Ok, try the pina colada…

There is also a pool and beach access here if you want to take a quick swim or catch some sun as a short break from the excursion.

Stop 4: Beach Place


Beach Place


There are numerous bars and restaurants here such as Hooters, Fat Tuesday, Lulus (giant fish bowls) also including all of the restaurants on the strip outside of Beach Place. This is the center point of Fort Lauderdale Beach.

(From here you can continue to Stops 5 & 6 if you’re feeling up to it. They are a bit north and will add at least another two hours round trip to your adventure.)

Stop 6: Bokamper’s Sports Bar and Grill


Bokampers water taxi


Bokamper’s is the northernmost stop the water taxi will make a drop off. If you want to catch a game or just looking to grab an ice cold beer you definitely don’t want to skip this stop.

Bokampers Sports Bar and Grill – Free drink with your meal.


Stop 7: Nanking


Nanking Fort Lauderdale


Stop here for some delicious appetizers and asian inspired cocktails. They also have great sushi!

Nanking – 10% off entire bill


Stop 8 (Final stop): Pirate Republic Bar


Pirate_Republic Night


The final stop of the day will be Pirate Republic. This stop will give you a pleasant end to a fun filled day. With an excellent burger and drinks, great views of the water and downtown you’ll likely be saying Arrr Matey!! when you jump on the water taxi back to the downtowner.

Pirate Republic – 5% Off (food only)


From Pirate Republic we recommend jumping back on the water taxi to get you back to your original starting point which is the Downtowner Saloon. If you have a designated driver you can jump in your car from the downtowner and get home safely! If you don’t, take an uber home and pick your car up in the morning, or take an uber to the starting point in the first place to play it safe!

We hope you enjoy this recommendation from Sterling Teetor Realty Group and we hope you have a memorable time on the water in the Venice of America!
