    Paladium Night Club

  • Critic Reviews

    • For frequent visitors, it's no secret that Union Planters Plaza (the shopping center that houses Whole Foods Market and d.b.a./Cafe on Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale) has been undergoing a major face-lift for the past year or so. New shops and yoga studios have set up shop. And the former walkway has been turned into a patio with outdoor tables and grass. One of the center's longest inhabitants, Laurent Tasic, chef/owner of Sage French Cafe, is taking advantage of the changes; he's currently working on two new concepts. See Also: Ten...

    • Rob Elba and Brian Franklin have gathered a large and notable cast of local musicians turned actors to perform their rock show Hearing Damage: The Rat Opera.

They played with big, childlike smiles on their faces. The room was filled with song and laughter, more than a dozen old friends creating together and consuming a decent amount of beer, orzo salad, and sushi... More on Cinema Paradiso »
