Unique Venues In South Florida

Funky Buddha Brewery

The Funky Buddha Brewery is located in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and is only 10 minutes from the beach. With a gorgeous ceremony area, the rustic barrel room is a flexible space that’s perfect for couples who want a boutique brewery look and feel. If you are looking for a dark, moody, rustic touch, the hundreds of spirits barrels full of aging beer provide the perfect backdrop for your ceremony. 

If you’re looking for a more easy-going reception that still has elegance, Funky Buddha may be for you. Their full hall option has a game room for endless entertainment for your guests throughout the evening. Challenge your guests to cornhole or even giant Jenga.

The decor in the space compliments the uniqueness of the Funky Buddha brand. You also can’t forget the amazing original beer selection that they’ll have for you to enjoy throughout the night! Note that there are food and beverage minimums, room rental, and service fees, but you’ll love how Funky Buddha transforms your celebration into something unforgettable.

Old Davie School House

Located on Griffin Road, Old Davie School House is one of the oldest buildings in the area. It was first constructed in 1918 and is one of the oldest schools in Broward County. The place holds more than 100 years of heritage and represents American history. Old Davie School House features a recently constructed outdoor amphitheater that can house almost 175 people at a time. Apart from the amphitheater, it also has open-air, roofed venues which can be a great consideration for outdoor events as well. The extensive landscape found here is optimal for larger weddings.

The total land area covered by Old Davie School House is around 10 acres so you would find plenty of locations for your wedding photographs. You can even use the old classroom to take couple and group pictures. If you decide to book Old Davie School House, make sure that you call in your reservation as soon as possible as it experiences a peak season during the winter and spring months.
