Florida: Five Points Lounge

Fort Lauderdale to be exact.

We were there for the Hukilau.  We arrived about a week before the event 
so that we could spend some time relaxing and exploring.
On our first night we went to the Five Points Tiki Lounge

 I wore this.

The trousers are Simplicity 4401.  The top is Simplicity 1201.

I know its hard to see in the photo at the top, but I trimmed the neckline in ball fringe.  
BALL FRINGE.  Possibly the greatest fringe the world has ever known.

Five Points Tiki Lounge is a collective of many different and wonderful things under one roof. 
It is a tattoo parlor...

...which is full of lovely tiki artifacts...

...and gorgeous flash... well as many vintage bits and bobs.

It is an art gallery...

...with pieces by local artists.

It is a hair salon.

It is a beer and wine bar...
...with a definite tiki motif.

Such a beautiful place!


They also have live music.  This is the stage where the bands play.

This is definitely the epicenter for cool folks in Fort Lauderdale but everyone is so nice!
Five Points is only open a few days a week so we only were able to go that first night.
We would definitely go back. I'd recommend it to anyone who's looking for a cool non-touristy
night out in Ft. Lauderdale.


  1. Wow, that venue is spectacular - so many different parts to see! Also, you look gorgeous! :)

  2. Thanks Mel! It was a really spectacular place. The photos don't even do it justice.
