The Golden Lyon Vin­tage Pub

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - South Broward - - BARS & CLUBS -

Just in­side the River­side Ho­tel is The Golden Lyon Vin­tage Pub, an in­ti­mate bar for an older crowd. By 6 p.m. there are no seats left at the u-shaped bar, and crowds of peo­ple hover around. It gets loud, es­pe­cially Thurs­day through Satur­day when there’s live mu­sic by singers and bands. From 3-7 p.m. Mon­day through Satur­day, the Golden Lyon’s happy hour of­fers half-off al­most all drinks, ex­cept for top-shelf liquor. Spe­cialty cock­tails in­clude an an­tiox­i­dant mar­tini (with Stoli Blue­beri, fresh blue­ber­ries, pome­gran­ate liquor and cran­berry juice), the huck­le­berry lemon­ade and a straw­berry mar­garita, which are all $6 dur­ing happy hour. Clas­sic cock­tails like the Rossini or the peach Bourbon Sour are only $5 dur­ing this time. The Golden Lyon’s kitchen is con­nected to the ho­tel’s Indigo Restau­rant, which of­fers seafood, steaks, sal­ads and piz­zas with a lit­tle piz­zazz. They’ve come up with some cre­ative fla­vor com­bi­na­tions such as The Crus­tacean, a lob­ster and shrimp pizza with roasted cherry toma­toes, fen­nel béchamel, moz­zarella and arugula. This pizza is more than enough for a few peo­ple. There’s also munchies like Asian chicken wings ($6) and smoked fish dip ($6). Th­ese bar bites are half-off dur­ing happy hour. Happy hour: 3-7 p.m. Mon­day through Satur­day Rec­om­mended drink: Straw­berry Mar­garita ($6) – el Ji­mador tequila with fresh-squeezed lime juice, mud­dled straw­ber­ries, agave nec­tar and Coin­treau Rec­om­mended bite: The Crus­tacean pizza ($9) Con­tact: 620 E.
