The Elbo Room was established in 1938 and has been a Ft. Lauderdale landmark for sixty years.
The only thing separating the bar and the Atlantic Ocean is a two lane one way road. Due to its friendly atmosphere and desirable location, there is no secret to why this cozy watering hole has been extremely popular. It all began with the WW2 sailors in the 1940's, then the Spring Breakers from the fifties to the late eighties, and presently to anyone still reveling from the good ol' days to the Generation X crowd looking for a place where everyone knows their name.

The height of popularity for the Elbo Room was definitely launched by the filming of the movie " Where the Boys Are ", with Connie Frances and George Hamilton. College students from all over were flocking to bask in the sun and meet the girl or guy of their dreams. The phenomenon of Spring Break continued in Ft. Lauderdale through the eighties and was documented with a re-make of " Where the Boys Are" , starring Tom Cruise and Shelly Long...

With the success of our original website, which only allowed users to view the inside of the bar and a nice ocean view, we launched the world's first fully interactive entertainment network. Now, www.ElboRoom.com offers its subscribers an array of live, full motion cameras with sound. The cameras now include a live beach camera which allows users to view the weather for the day - not to mention the many scantily clad beachgoers! Our new live bar chat is becoming very popular and allows people around the world using the internet to see and chat with people enjoying themselves at the bar. If you are stuck at work and can't make happy hour in person, you can join our live happy hour show via the net. The show will interview people in the bar and on the beach. Not a bad way to spend your last hour of work. If that's not enough, join our online dating, view our live band camera and bikini pages, enroll in online bartending school, or shop at the online Elbo store. Through wars, Spring Breaks, good times and bad, you can count on the Elbo Room to be a place where happy memories are made.

My old geocities surfcams1 page has carried your link for 8 years now, I think yours was one of the first surfcam sites I found. Now my surfcams page carries about 200 surfcam links, many of them in Australia. A lot of the U.S. east and gulf coast cams were wiped out by hurricanes. At the time I added your link I believe you also had audio and all three cams were in operation in smaller windows, probably 320x240 , a 4x3 ratio. A video stream with high definition and high frame refresh rate is a lot more interesting than a large out of focus pixelated dirty window, and for some reason an artificially expanded window always focuses on the dirt. I think that surfcams are the greatest marketing tool ever invented as it gives potential visitors a chance to become familiar with an area before they commit to stopping for a visit. It's like coming back home for a visit every few years. You learn the area, where you can park, restaurant and lodging availability, marinas with boats for charter and fishing guides. A few hours spent online studying an area you consider visiting will save a day or two of your vacation.
My favorite cams are the Pan-Tilt-Zoom cams that allow the viewer to remotely control the cam for two minute or more segments. My library includes many recorded hours of ships, aircraft, board surfers and wind surfers. My least favorite cams are the ones that are pre-programmed to pan tilt zoom, over and over all day and night the exact same view. Those cameras are the most expensive of the lot but return the least revenue for investment. There are links to about a hundred of those in Australia on my page and I seldom open them as there is never any way for the viewer to track any action of interest or look up and down the beach or at passing ships, whales, and aircraft, wind surfers etc.. Seawater looks the same all over the world. There's no point in streaming a PTZ cam if the viewer can't control the cam. Viewers resent PTZ cam owners who don't allow viewers to control the cam and the mechanical controls wear out much faster with 24 hour panning. Lambadafan
