This is the watering hole for bon vivants with a vision.
The venue offers a cool, relaxing, intoxicating space where you can escape with friends and get lost in a moment. It is comprised of three rooms with distinct personality - A cocktail bar, turning out masterfully executed libations, a terrace, for sun-drenched revelry, and a scintillating great room, hosting near-nightly parties for a sophisticated collection of clientele.

The atmosphere at the WILDER is playful, but elevated, intoxicating, but familiar, tropical, enticing, and a place to, well, get WILD, that feels more like a secluded, storybook escape than a bar or lounge. Guests are at ease, and the staff is polished, friendly, and faultless.

The menu changes often. Sometimes the food is amazing. Sometimes it’s ok. Drinks are all really good. The later you go the louder the music gets and the more crowded. So I like to go early. Overall this is one of may favorite spots in South Florida.

Great atmosphere, music and service. Wish the cocktails paired with the small plates a little better. But overall great find in south Florida!

Love the live entertainment and have been here several times but this past Friday night we went and there was a Dj and the music was really loud but apart from that we love the food and never wait too long for our drinks and food. We LOVE the ambiance as well

The burlesque performance was fantastic. I didn't order any food, but the drinks were great and not watered down.

i'm originally from Philly so i missed cocktail bars so much ,was super excited to try this place out.
made reservations for the burlesque night.
place is very nice form inside and out.
walked in straight to the bar , had to walk around for 5 minutes to find someone to sit us,but i guess we walked in from different a door.
was hoping the server will give me some tips on the drinks after i told her what i like but she just kept saying i will come back until i had to give her a list of ingredients i want and still ended up with just watered down drink not special , defiantly had higher expectations but maybe i should had stick to the cocktail menu.
kitchen close at 9:45 , we didn't know that and we were 10 minutes late but they were kind enough to let us order the fries and shrimp . fries were great and shrimp over cooked but whatever.
the show was great and very entertaining so is the host.
all in all it's a solid 3 start place.
maybe on a weekday night ,outside, ordering from the cocktail menu i will give it 5.

I would recommend The Wilder to a friend but advise them to sit outside, despite the muggy humidity. It is nearly impossible to order because the music is out of control loud, much less facilitate any conversation inside. However, the drinks were good and reasonably priced.

Love the place. The decor, the music and the drinks were great! They were short on staff and were training someone, so it was kind of slow

Food was bad. Service was slow. Couches were dirty.

Really upsetting since I had a party of 12 for my friend’s birthday. The manager attempted to make up for it with a free bottle of champagne to toast to the birthday girl , when I told her how disappointed I was , which I appreciated . But unfortunately, the service aspect didn’t change. Drinks took forever and so did the food. It took 25 minutes for me to be notified that they did not have my order, but from my understanding it’s because their food comes from another venue .This is pretty bad for a Wednesday night .

The couch that was reserved for Our party was visibly very dirty with crumbs and papers which was disappointing since they had it reserved and knew we were coming. It was still daylight so the sun was shining on the couch. I had to ask for my tables to be cleaned throughout the evening and had to ask for a detailed check to see what we were charged.

Nice place but could use work.

I can not explain how much I loved the environment this place gives from the moment you walk in. Everybody was so chilled and with great vibes! The music is back in the early 2000s and I LOVED it ! This will for sure be my next regular place to come to.

Bar newyorkino en Fort Lauderdale.
Hermoso lugar, buenos tragos y muy buena atención.
Recomiendo no comer allí; de los 4 platitos que pedí, ninguno fue rico.

The manager, Ruby, did her best to rectify the situations that arose during my dinner. However, the image that they are trying to portray on social media doesn't reflect an accurate representation of their spot. It's a cocktail bar, serving food out of the restaurant next door, called "Foxy Brown" (I only found this out after everything went downhill with the food order and lack of silverware). Their food quality is sub par. The drinks needed some work. The service was OK. Ambiance was amazing, but I didn't see the point in making a reservation through open table as it was fairly quiet and each attempt at ordering food resulted in "We're out of that." or "The kitchen closes in 5 minutes". I'd like to give them another try in the future when they get their own kitchen going, as this place has a lot of potential. But for now, I'm writing this review to simply save everyone the trip.

The consummate drinking den! This is a true original. The decor is absolutely stunning and lends itself to another era. It is the perfect spot for a group gathering. The small plates are delicious and the cocktails are inventive and well done. They also have a nice menu of wines, beers and liquor. We attended on the Friday evening that they began their burlesque review. It started to get crowded around 9, however it wasn’t uncomfortable at all. The space is wide with plentiful seating and has great accommodations on the terrace. The terrace runs the length of the building and has wrap around lounge seating. Great perch to people watch. It’s simply gorgeous. I only have one unfavorable observation, the ladies room. Two stalls in a tiny closet. There was a line each time I went to the restroom. Not unusual for a bar establishment but with so much thought given to every detail of this beautiful place, this is where they missed the opportunity to set themselves as far as restrooms go. A beautifully appointed, perhaps boudoir inspired wash room would have put this place over the top. Lastly, to their credit they have parking! (Free parking!) and lots of it behind the building. We will definitely return.

Loved the outdoor area. The drinks were also unique and high quality. Small menu but we had the shrimp and sliders and both great.
