The Wharf, a popular pop-up event destination along the Miami River, has announced plans for a second waterfront location in Fort Lauderdale.

“We have seen the way The Wharf Miami has resonated with both locals and visitors and how it has helped to elevate and drive attention to the area it now calls home,” said founder Emi Guerra. “So we jumped at the chance to create something equally as dynamic in Fort Lauderdale.”

The Wharf Fort Lauderdale will be located along the city’s New River on Las Olas Boulevard and will be opening later this year.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports the new venue will feature six food and drink tenants, according to real-estate developer Dev Motwani.

Like its sister location in Miami, the Wharf Fort Lauderdale will be an open, spacious venue that will offer bites from “some of the most sought-after food trucks and chefs in the area.”

The new lounge will be located at 40 W. Las Olas Blvd between Esplanada Park and Huizenga Plazas.

Adventure Awaits…⚓ Sea You Soon 🌊 Ft. Lauderdale! #KnotWorking @wharfftl _______________________________________ The Wharf, a multi-use, pop-up event space on the historic Miami River, is thrilled to announce plans for a second waterfront location along Fort Lauderdale’s New River on the bustling Las Olas Boulevard opening later this year. Since opening in 2017, The Wharf has solidified its standing as Miami’s premiere venue for creative events. To date, the 30,000-square-foot venue has served more than one million patrons, including locals and visitors to the city, and has served as an open-air gathering space for lovers of food, music and culture. Like the Miami location, The Wharf Fort Lauderdale will be multifaceted and offer plenty of space to kick back and enjoy the waterfront views while enjoying the different bar options and sampling bites from some of the most sought-after food trucks and chefs in the area. The Wharf’s founder, Emi Guerra, has partnered with CEO of Merrimac Ventures, Dev Motwani, and CEO of Barreto Group, Rodney Barreto, to bring the new project to life. “We have seen the way The Wharf Miami has resonated with both locals and visitors and how it has helped to elevate and drive attention to the area it now calls home, so we jumped at the chance to create something equally as dynamic in Fort Lauderdale,” says Guerra. The Wharf Fort Lauderdale will bring the same dynamic scene to Broward County’s waterways, enhancing the area’s reputation even further as a hub for vibrant culture, innovative culinary arts, and creative energy. “We are excited to create a venue that will further activate the Riverwalk and will be a great spot for families, locals and tourists to enjoy and explore the Riverwalk district,” says Dev Motwani, CEO of Merrimac Ventures. “We are confident that this new development will help to further solidify Fort Lauderdale’s place as South Florida’s next big dining, entertainment and arts destination.” The Fort Lauderdale iteration of The Wharf will be located at 20 West Las Olas Blvd. near downtown and will be situated on 1.25 acres of property on the city’s historic Riverfront.
