  • Description: The Elbo Room was established in 1938 and has been a Ft. Lauderdale landmark for sixty years. The only thing separating the bar and the Atlantic Ocean is a two lane one way road. Due to its friendly atmosphere and desirable location, there is no secret to why this cozy watering hole has been extremely popular. It all began with the WW2 sailors in the 1940′s, then the Spring Breakers from the fifties to the late eighties, and presently to anyone still reveling from the good ol’ days to the Generation X crowd looking for a place where everyone knows their name.
    The height of popularity for the Elbo Room was definitely launched by the filming of the movie ” Where the Boys Are “, with Connie Frances and George Hamilton. College students from all over were flocking to bask in the sun and meet the girl or guy of their dreams. The phenomenon of Spring Break continued in Ft. Lauderdale through the eighties and was documented with a re-make of ” Where the Boys Are” , starring Tom Cruise and Shelly Long.
