Main Stage
Penny Bar


For decades, the first (and only) place where many men could meet other gay people was at a bar, mostly in the shadows – a speakeasy. From the beginning, the speakeasy was relatively small, with little or no entertainment involved. Still, through gradual growth, it popularized and expanded to many different areas with new additions of entertainment and eventually made the speakeasy one of the biggest businesses during Prohibition. Johnsons, in a tucked-away location off the popular Wilton Drive, recreates the era of speakeasies. Men can enjoy conversation at the bar and choose to walk through the velvet curtains where a whole new world of enjoyment awaits.

Our general manager, Matt Colunga, is ready to turn up the heat at Johnsons Fort Lauderdale by bringing years of experience with him. We promise an upscale, state-of-the-art nightclub experience, where men can enjoy the company of other men, and where our bartenders serve up the stiffest cocktails in town.

We have nightly specials tailored for every taste and whimsy. Doors open at 5pm, cover is $5 after 8pm (except Fri & Sat).
