SECRET SAUCE: Bar Stache Drinking Den Opens in Downtown Lauderdale

The Rockin’ Coast

Packed tightly in the club, worshippers to the rock gods anxiously await the melodies they know by heart: The deep drone of the bass, screeching riffs emanating from electric guitar, the pounding on the snare drum, and, finally, the singer screaming the first notes into the microphone. It’s not a scene from New York, Los Angeles or Austin, but rather a nightly tribute to music in sunny South Florida.
