Comment on Facebook "No other businesses...

This virus is no longer a danger. The media wants you go think it will kill you but 99% of the time it will not kill a healthy person. Yet they are still pushing this on us as if the death rate were 50%.

Start one here. As of 11:59 pm tmrw, July 2nd, no restaurants can serve food/liquor on premise from 12am-5am

Bars need to b open too.

Maybe use this time to clean that shithole of a bar instead of whining about opening. Even at your "come show your support" rallies you prove you are not responsible enough to open safely.

Yea fuck this if this picture is the example. Stay closed

Prohibition 2020

I think Elbo room should be allowed to open ONLY if they have paid taxes on every cash dollar they have taken in over the last 20 years! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Well that will help !

Pretty sure a bar is a place and not a person. Bar lives? Really? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Elbow Room.. how about you learn nouns? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

It's too bad that the COVID-19 picked up again in Florida, but, it won't be around forever


Is that the pic ? Nobody wearing masks or distancing ? Hmm, that won't help their chances! Morons !

Social distancing is not sustainable!

Countdown started, this group will self-destructed in 2 weeks. 1.2.3...

And not a single person wearing a mask. They could make a difference if they would at least follow the rules lol js

Fucking idiots.

Welcome to Florida!

Comment on Facebook Welcome to Florida!

Pretty much sums it up.

Elbo I am a fan but you put a few beers in me and I’m slow dancing with strangers without a mask ๐Ÿ˜ท. Who loves you baby.

Y'all down in Florida don't wear masks.

South Florida The Zoo !!!!

Look at the bright side. Saving money on violations.

Beaches , restaurants are closed do to new outbreaks ๐Ÿ˜ท

Maybe if you wouldn’t pack people in like sardines then bars wouldn’t be in this situation.

Which porn stores are open?...asking for a friend.

Totally unfair ๐Ÿ˜ข

You forgot "Peaceful Protesters" AKA, Looters & Rioters!!

All about Control .. So you can sit down & order a meal, But Not a drink Yes agree , Lawsuits need to happen

I bet you after November all of this stupid Covid lockdown crap will end within a few weeks.

There are special

This is such false equivalency. The ONLY purpose of a bar is to socialize. All the other businesses have another purpose. If they had kept bars and clubs closed across the state, we would not have the massive increase in cases we are seeing. It sucks for bar staff, and they should get more compensation than just unemployment, but that doesn't mean bars should open and spread covid.

His about Wilton Manors?

This is fucked up

But you’re not...

Such bullshit!!

I don't get why p*** shops are in that equation or salons for that matter, but you got to admit there's a difference between supermarkets and Lowe's and a bar, right?? I mean everyone is complaining about Cuomo up here in New York but all I know is and I'm not a Cuomo backer but we were the epicenter for the country and now it's under control, so something must be happening that's right. I know it's hard to admit something when it affects you or you disagree with it, but this is the problem with society is there are facts right in people's faces and they just stone cold deny those facts because it's not something that they agree with or it affects them negatively.

I really feel for you folks it’s terrible what these lunatics are doing to this country and our businesses. They are now doubling down because cases are going up because of more testing and the concept of herd immunity beginning to take hold imagine the shock! Again these officials are completely crazed there is no use attempting to rationalize with them. Mark my words after November 3 you will never hear about Coronavirus again. It should be about politics but THEY are making it about politics.

This plandemic political stunt won't end until November unfortunately

It’s so stupid open the bars

What measures will Elbo Room take to protect against the spread of the virus if you are allowed to open?

Sorry to be an asshole but I have kept my mouth shut about this since March 16th.... maybe had y’all followed the rules and kept the crowd under 50 people, they would be going a little bit easier on you... but y’all let all those spring breakers in and broke the rules... karma is a bitch

Sorry guys. Cases tripling. Gonna be a long Boooring summer here.

This virus is never going away. Stop living your lives like it will. Open the business and use the tools you have been taught throughout this whole thing.

Post a little more info like when there up for election so the public can be on top it

Done !@

Serve some simple Apps then u are a restaurant

Vote republican next election !!!!! This is absurd what’s going on locally in Ft. Laud.

FL cases skyrocketing! Stay closed....stay home...mask -- ONE that and you will be in the clear

This link provides some statistics that may help your case. Businesses should be able to open provided they follow the guidelines. Patrons have the option to choose where they go.

I have been to at least 10 bars in 2 weeks and most of them don't even serve food! I was just asking a friend if you guys opened yet. This is so sad, Elbo Room is a part of our history as far as I'm concerned. Do you think they are trying to force you out of business so that they can buy up that land?

Love the place but Start renovations to bathrooms etc Now while closed - be ready for when season starts in the fall

Why can't you guys sell 2go beverages ? Agreed the other "restaurants'(bars) by you guys are overly packed with nobody wearing masks or distancing ! What ever they are classified as, They are bars plain and simple !

We have a warning โš ๏ธ all from las olas till sunrise! And a lot of costumers ask for, were I go? Elbo room but nothing happens? That all open everything we can take care us

Start serving food, nothing elaborate just bar snacks etc...

Blame "restaurants" like Piazza Italia that can't follow any rules and not only are going to ruin it for you but everyone else too.

Outsource a wicked hot dog stand inside and open up. Get creative until lifted. #problemsolver (u know the city been wanting that spot for decades)

It’s true I’ve been in a dozen “bar/restaurant “and everybody’s having a good time there’s no reason why you guys shouldn’t be open

We were at Drunken Taco all weekend on vacation not ordering food...

What a joke...and I'm coming down in July too..๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

It's a game, they want that property. Even if you have a 99 yr lease.

Bars are open...Kim's Alley Bar is and they do not serve Food!#

Y'all partner up with a food truck. Bam, you are open.

๐Ÿคฌ it is ๐Ÿ’ฏ ridiculous, unfair, And above all just Stupid already.

I’m in Rehoboth Beach DE and all bars on the beach are open .

Maybe trying to save live. Florida is the hotspot of the country now.

It is sooooooo strange seeing Elbo Room deserted

Can you guys open this weekend ?

I saw a bunch got closed yesterday

Start posting pictures of officials outside businesses.

Open it now ....

Steve Nuckols

Liberal BS!!!

Uber eats delivers alcohol from restaurants, bars, and liquor stores in miami dade. Make it work!!! Where there’s a will there’s a way!!! Good luck! It’s extremely impressive how dedicated this amazing bar is!!!!!

That's not true? People aren't hanging out at bars?!!! Mabye quarterdeck. That's it? But that's completely outside and they serve food

Even made the little ticker on the bottom of Channel 10 news. Give'em hell

Good luck!

I wish I was there to rally with all of you. See you in November my friends.

It's great you are speaking up for not only the Elbo Room, but for everyone and providing a platform for a collective voice to be heard. Thank you!

Over 100,000 people dead and you could not even wear a mask.

Elbo Room is a ICON. It should lead the Way. It is a Leader **


Some of us can't make because we are working, can it be live steamed? Please

Open up and just pay the fine!

It’s not fair. Government overreach !

It's been on NBC news all morning about the rally today

Are you deleting dissenting comments? Seriously ?

Open up! It’s your business

Needs to open

Good luck โ˜˜๏ธ

Several of you would be dead if your workplace never closed. We now have more cases daily than ever. I care about you and your jobs but also get the societal level need to protect people. No hate or agenda here. Just concern. Good luck. Please wear masks and distance. Be safe.

Its been on the channel 6 news this am announcing your rally today.

Good luck be safe

I’ll be there ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ


The Numbers are rising due to idiots out and about spreading this disease and not listening or taking precautions. Do bars really need to be open right now? If you have to drink that bad I’d say there are some other issues there. Lmao ๐Ÿ˜‚

Monica Suchodolski

You guys followed zero safety precautions while trying to protest that you should be allowed to reopen.

Damn* They didn't show the leggy brunette,!

I was in town last weekend. So sad to see the place all closed up.โ˜น๏ธ my liver was happy though๐Ÿ™‚

Very disappointed to see one of my favourite bars in Fort Lauderdale going against vitally important health advice.

Not one mask in your photo OP last week. Y'all should be taking pictures in surgical prep gear, with rags and bleach in your hands. That's the photo you want.


Best of luck โ˜˜๏ธ

Yes come drink and get coronavirus!! AA much? Lmao ๐Ÿ˜‚

Open the ELBO

I’m looking forward to having a drink there with all my friends

Rebecca Courier Geiger

Andrew Baker

R.i.p. elbow room. No masks or safety at all? Trumpers unite there. As a long time patron I'll never go there again. So disappointed.

About 15 years ago I restored a black t-bird for the owner of Sunroof of Florida. In the trunk were newspapers from 1956 & 57 with adds from Porkyโ€™s, the Elbo Room and other barโ€™s from back then. When we were done with it I asked the owner where he got the car from and showed him the newspaperโ€™s. He said he bought the car from Indiana and that the people had bought it brand new for their daughter to attend college in south Florida. Could this be the same car?? I wouldnโ€™t bet against it. ...

Thanks for endangering the doctors and nurses that will be treating you. Have fun on the respirator.

Wow, lot's of memories in that building...or perhaps more accurately, the loss of them!

Continue the fight !! Hope to see you OPEN in September

Keep your mask comments to yourself!!! Guess you’ll be staying home forever!! Hahaha.... I was happy to be there and support good friends and great people!!! Time to reopen!!!

That is a pretty ineffective way of getting things opened. Showing irresponsible patrons who obviously could care less about people that are at high risk when this pandemic is still very much alive is bad idea!

Can Elbo room be classified a concert venue since restaurants have the ability to operate as bars?

No social distancing and no masks. No bueno amigos!

Here's our next spike.

Been returning to The Elbo Room every time I’m in Ft Lauderdale since 1968! Hoping it opens soon and stays open forever!

I’m there in Spirit! May the force be with you !!! โค๏ธ

damn wish I could be there 65 was the last time USN Sun service

Wish I was there. See you all in November

Do a temporary merger with the pizza place next door and serve pizza. Problem solved.

Can you let us out of staters know why you can't open ? I thought I saw some posts about bars in the Clearwater area opening up. Thanks

Open already! Do we have to start selling hot dogs to open ? Breakout the grill! Ready to be at elbo! It's been long enough

I hope the time was used to update those nasty bathrooms...๐Ÿ˜ฒ

No masks, no business.

No masks?! No way

The bars are open in Key West. Might be time to vote all the Politicians in Fort Lauderdale out.

My fav place to go in Lauderdale ๐Ÿ˜Š

Will be there July 19 for a week...

So you are closed again with the ban of alcohol sales. Seems like that original “rally” was all done in vain...

At least its still there. I see they bulldozed the tropic cay a few years back

If I can spend all day Thursday at Universal Studios and Islands of adventure and they can open the Elbo Room. We had no masks in the restaurants at universal studios. We did have to wear them in the park, it was not a problem.

Yes open please!!
