Fort Lauderdale is already giving hipster Miami a run for its money with its burgeoning artsy FAT Village and Flagler neighborhoods, which have become arguably more cool than tourist-ridden Wynwood. Now, in addition to artisanal coffee shops, microbreweries, street art and craft beer gardens, our kid sibling to the north can add a super-lush and modern rooftop bar from the team behind NYC cocktail institution Death & Co. to its growing roster of sophisticated metropolitan offerings. Perched atop The Dalmar, a new tropical-inspired “lifestyle hotel” situated closer to the downtown core rather than Fort Lauderdale Beach, Sparrow boasts sweeping, 25th-story city and ocean views, a main indoor bar and lounge and an expansive patio bar. Apart from the superb Death & Co.-helmed cocktail program, which features a range of easy-drinking, complex and group-format options, Sparrow totally nails the sleek, midcentury-bohemian design aesthetic that can so easily read as played-out. Taking cues from the open rooftop views and coastal location with a nod to Old Florida, both indoor and outdoor spaces also feature a food menu that complements Sparrow’s cocktails and sensuous atmosphere. Focusing on seasonal ingredients, crisp flavors and shareable plates, the menu includes dishes like sweet corn fritters with avocado remoulade, lobster ceviche and crispy mushroom steamed buns.
