5. Grille 401 401 E Las Olas Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301

The fun at Grille 401 at Las Olas is derived from three places: its two bars and its varied menu. Curate a feast from the selection of sushi, flatbreads, bar bites, soups, salads, meats and fish -- Grille 401 is made for celebratory meals with its spacious, wood-laden interiors punctuated by plush leather booths and illuminated by large, modern lanterns that make the ceilings feel even higher. The Asian Sea Bass is one of the menu’s gems, soaked in sherry soy broth and paired with cilantro-mint sticky rice, fresh spinach, and seared veggies, as are the pork chops stuffed with bacon, blue cheese, and apples, and topped with tequila-lime cream sauce. Rinse your palate with a house-made cocktail; the Acai Mojito is “antioxidant-rich” and comes highly recommended.

Located inside the luxurious Mandarin Oriental, this bar-cum-lounge boasts gorgeous, panoramic beach views from an expansive floor to ceiling glass facade enveloping the entirety of the bar. The cocktails are equally impressive. Try killer spirits like their Ramos Gin Fizz or a Lemongrass Gin and Tonic. And take the opportunity to enjoy one of these carefully-crafted beverages before, or after, soaking up the sun.
