Whiskey Neat Now Open in Plantation
The city of Plantation is welcoming some new whiskey to its world. Whiskey Neat, the urban cocktail lounge with one of South Florida’s largest whiskey selections, is pleased to announce the grand opening of its new Plantation location, marking its second destination in Broward County for whiskey aficionados to indulge in one of the most extensive menus around.
Featuring over 230 rare whiskeys, the expansion of the cocktail lounge brings a unique experience to whiskey enthusiasts in the area. The new establishment is conveniently located across from Sawgrass Mills next to Quarterdeck; both locations are owned by the family-operated Old School Hospitality.
The 2,500-square-foot space provides a welcoming atmosphere with 50 seats for guests to relax and enjoy their favorite whiskeys. Connected to Quarterdeck, Whiskey Neat shares the same concept as its existing location on Southeast 17th Street. The bar showcases a stunning multicolored liquor wall stocked with hundreds of rare and sought-after whiskeys. Whiskey Neat patrons can also indulge in a delectable menu of culinary delights from the adjacent kitchen, including American comfort fare, specialty sushi, custom-blend burgers, build-your-own poke bowls, tacos and more.
Whiskey Neat’s expansion in Plantation marks the first of several remarkable projects planned by Old School Hospitality. In 2024, the group is set to unveil Hula Kai Tiki Bar, a two-story tiki-inspired culinary concept on 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale, further enhancing the area’s dining and entertainment offerings.
“Whiskey Neat’s expansion into Plantation is a significant milestone for us,” said Old School Hospitality CEO James Flanigan. “Thanks to the incredible response from our beloved guests, it was a natural step to bring the exceptional Whiskey Neat experience to this area. We are thrilled to offer whiskey enthusiasts in Plantation and beyond an unforgettable journey through over 230 rare whiskeys. Our prime location just across from the Sawgrass Mills mall provides the perfect backdrop for whiskey lovers to savor their passion in a vibrant and dynamic setting.”
