I’m not sure where they came up with the name “Laser Wolf”, but my theory is that it must have been the name of someone’s EverQuest character back in the day. (For those of you who missed the biggest gaming trend to consume innocent lives in the 90′s/00′s, EverQuest was one of those fantasy, “live vicariously through your character because you don’t have a life of your own” games. If you survived the 90′s and 00′s without falling victim to dating someone who played this game, then I commend you!)
But annnyway, if you’re looking for a new place to hang out and you like beer, Laser Wolf bar in Fort Lauderdale is a pretty neat place. Off the beaten path, this bar serves original micro-brew beers in addition to well-known and not-so-well-known craft beers from around the globe, plus wine and sake, in case beer’s not your thing. Indie art adorns the walls, which can be bought if you fancy something you see. Indoor seating is sparse, but an outdoor patio creates a nice ambiance when weather permits. Get hungry while you’re there?… not to worry, the food trucks park right outside for your munching pleasure.
Laser Wolf attracts a mostly “hipster” crowd, which makes for great people watching. You’ll be certain to see some cool and interesting fashion expression among the patrons. While the male patrons seemed to be dressed in more stereotypical hipster fashion, the females seemed to better embrace the hipster trend for its true meaning: dressing in what one likes for his/her-self, regardless of what’s “trending.” The attire ranged from chic and sleek to beach-y and grunge. But the best part about this bar is that it creates an aura of originality and self-expression, rather than conforming to the pretentious, traditional Ft. Lauderdale nightlife vibe. Plus, last night was a great night for spotting celebrity look-a-likes . . . we saw Kevin from the Backstreet Boys, Frodo from Lord of the Rings, and Amber from Teen Mom, all in one night!
