Downtown Fort Lauderdale’s newest –and best rooftop cocktail destination, Sparrow Lounge and Patio, is located on the 25th floor of The Dalmar, an urban resort style. The décor of the gorgeous and colorful patio evokes America modernism of the 1950s and 1960s, and boasts a motorized retractable roof, spectacular wall mural and stunning skyline views.
The separate patio bar is accessed through the main bar lounge, which has its own unique style and cocktail menu. Both bars were created in partnership with Proprietors LLC, the lauded hospitality company, and team behind cocktail institution, Death & Co.
