Fort Lauderdale Watering Hole Closing After 5 Decades



You are looking at one of the final Happy Hours at Maguires Hill 16 three days before its final closing.  The cozy wood and stained glass bar has lasted unusually long for any business in South Florida and the Maguires family felt it was time to move on.  Employees learned of the closing the same day this photo was taken and the decision made.

The successful Restaurant People company has purchased the property and will close it completely without revealing any specific future planned for the spot.

Thus far local residents are keeping their fingers crossed that maybe there will eventually be anoher gathering place in its location.   Fort Lauderdale’s Flagler Village, where Maguires is located, has become a growing area of gentrification as well as it’s trend toward more of an “artsy” area.  Art and technology businesses are competing for space where once few would walk in daylight.
