Best cheap drinks in South Florida 2017: Artie's Sportsmen Lounge


Artie’s Sportsmen Lounge

2218 N. Federal Highway, Hollywood; 954-927-7176;

If you are smoke-averse, do not enter. But if you are tired of $20 craft cocktails and $10 pints in trendy spots, this dive bar is for you. The draft beer costs $2, bottled beer costs $3 and cocktails run $4 to $5.25. The drinks flow from 7 a.m. until the wee hours. Smoking is allowed, and the food, including steak and frog legs, is surprisingly good. “Where else can you get a drink, breakfast and escargot at 8 a.m.?” a Facebook fan gushes. Only at Artie’s.
