The Balcony, a Sophisticated New Orleans-Inspired Restaurant is an upscale two-story restaurant which features an open-air rooftop and balcony on Fort Lauderdale’s trendy Las Olas Boulevard.
The restaurant will incorporate the dynamic tastes of New Orleans, which blends French, Spanish, West African, Amerindian, German, Italian, Irish and Vietnamese influences and ingredients. This 2 story favorite Las Olas destination features New Orleans-style cuisine, including tapas-style small plates, craft cocktails and live music.
The beverage menus include specialty New Orleans-inspired cocktails such as Milk Punch, The Balcony Sazerac and French 75 Cristo, in addition to craft beers and an extensive wine list. As a special start to the evening, every table is greeted with a complimentary Gruet sparkling wine toast upon being seated. Wine aficionados will love the restaurant’s comprehensive wine selection, which is on display in a wine gallery. For the true VIP experience, a limited quantity of private wine lockers are available for purchase.
A few of The Balcony’s additional features include an all-you-can-eat Saturday crawfish boil for $35 per person, and a Sunday Jazz Brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., with live music and mimosas and Bloody Mary’s for $5 each.
Reminiscent of a scene from a New Orleans street car, the restaurant leaves no detail overlooked in both its interior and exterior spaces, right down to the stylish staff uniforms. Decorative tiles, showpiece chandeliers, red booths and a hammered tin ceiling are all carefully selected pieces that effortlessly work together to create an elegant yet inviting atmosphere. A large dining room on the ground floor incudes a stage for live music and a full bar with TVs, accessorized by brick barrel vaults where branded wine barrels are on display.
On the second floor, an airy rooftop bar is designed to entertain guests all year long with a weather-sensing shuttered roof to protect from rain and sun. A large central bar serves The Balcony’s signature libations, which can be enjoyed at surrounding booths. At the front of the restaurant a wrought iron balcony overlooks Las Olas Blvd. offering guests the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail.
