109 SW 2nd Ave
If Dad’s in Himmarshee, he’s got a good option re: professionally made drinks. Stache employs bartenders who approach their craft with the spirit of Parisian artist and the precision of a German automaker. Plus, they call the place a “drinking den” – and if there’s anything dads love, it’s a good den.
Downtown Cigar Bar
631 S Andrews Ave
Cigars and Whiskey are great dad combinations, like weeknights and war documentaries or boats and Guy Harvey shirts. And this cool, comfortable establishment does a great line in both. Check out their Whiskey Society Wednesdays, when they feature a fine whiskey special and hand-rolled cigars from midday to mid-evening.
The Royal Pig
350 E Las Olas Blvd
Part sports bar, part classy bistro, the Pig ticks lots of Dad boxes. The food menu includes creative takes on comfort classics. And the drinks? Plenty to choose from (to put it mildly) – if you’re committed to whiskey, we recommend starting with their creative take on an Old Fashioned.
330 Himmarshee St.
Occasionally, Dad Culture melds perfectly with Actual, Hip Culture. Like, back in the ’90s when it was suddenly okay to wear Hawaiian shirts? Dad heaven. (It happened, kids; look it up.) And now you’ve got the rise of the modern speakeasy – which is basically just a Dad Bar with its comfy chairs, dark colors and of course, selection of beverages. In the case of Apothecary 330, that means more than 300 whiskeys. Suggest Dad make several trips to sample them all.
