1. The Venue: The Broward Center
Pre-Show: Marti’s New River Bistro
The Broward Center’s in-house restaurant is scheduled to reopen this month. It’s got great views overlooking the river, and a three-course prix fixe dinner menu that will get you to the show on time.
The world’s your oyster for post-show drinks in Himmarshee. For the finer things, you can never go wrong checking out the amazing whiskey menu at Stache. Or if you make your evening a bit less fancy, check out the $3 PBR menu at the Poorhouse. (Note: it has one item on it.)
2. The Venue: The Parker
The pizzas are amazing, but if you’re looking for something a little lighter before a show, this is the sort of place that puts together a salad that makes you reconsider what you previously knew about salad.
Post-Show: Roxanne’s Liquor Bar & Kitchen
Across Federal from the Parker, Roxanne’s has one of the best cocktail menus in town.
3. The Venue: Culture Room
Pre-Show: Angelo Elia the Bakery Bar
It’s only open until 7pm, but you’ve got a show to see anyway. This outpost of the Angelo Elia empire will give you a delicious, light sandwich and a pleasant drink before you head around the corner to the Culture Room.
Post-Show: Kelly Brothers Irish Pub
It’s as straightforward as it gets in this longtime neighborhood favorite. Good drinks, good company and a great post-concert vibe.
