Imbibe in Vibe  or Good Vibe-rations
By: Lisa Quinn

Put your dancin’ shoes back on, people. Vibe- the newest music lounge on Las Olas Boulevard has opened and wow, has it ever! Fort Lauderdale's first and only Ultra Lounge dedicated to all things music, made its debut last weekend. Tim Petrillo, Co-President of The Restaurant People, has done his homework well. Petrillo oversees Tarpon Bend, YoLo, O-Lounge, and now Vibe- his most cutting-edge creation. A much needed venue, Vibe has kick started the revival of downtown Ft. Lauderdale.
With a capacity for about 90 inside and 200 out, Vibe is most welcomed for its no cover charge policy but simultaneously, offering its guests highly chic ambience. With a state of the art lighting and sound system, the technologically advanced era has not escaped this spot. Petrillo has even mentioned that a future app may be in the works for VIP’s to text when they are coming and what they want before they even arrive.
The décor is provocatively provoking; the walls are decked in lush female curves and are illuminated in a luminous lighting system that has the same effect as candles do on a person.  
Live lounge bands, DJ’s and hip, unique performances are all lined up for the sexy space. Flat screens are in abundance, as well as a lovely waitstaff all decked in white that seemed to be the models for those lush female curves on the walls.
Bottle service and VIP seating are available for those who want to take it up a notch. Vibe is also available for private parties; I can surely see some fun holiday soirees in the making here!
I was recently there for the Halloween Pet Set event and I heard comments from all around about the new kid on the block; ALL positive; stating how “there was finally a great place to dance on this side of the tracks”, now. 
Most importantly, besides the music and décor, the drinks are a big draw. Vibe’s mixologists are using only fresh ingredients to make the spirits just as important as the aura. Enjoy your drinks out in the open courtyard since Vibe takes full advantage of the ability to combine the indoors with the outdoors; and be sure not to miss the fire pit.  Open from 4 pm daily til’ 3 am on weekends and 2 am on weekdays, Vibe is a much needed adrenaline rush with a touch of class, fun and sexiness. Don’t miss it.
