Description

A new bar is bringing life to Fort Lauderdale's Flagler Village arts district while paying tribute to the dead. Images of Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Jean-Michel Basquiat cover the interior of 27 Bar and Lounge. The bar is themed after the so-called 27 Club, a long list of musicians and artists who died at the age of 27, often by drug overdose or suicide.

Owner Tayler Scharg, 25, says he came up with the bar's theme while in college.

"I was doing a concept for a project, " Scharg says, "and it [was] a bar-record store."

A guitar player, Scharg says he loves the music of Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison. Once he realized they both died at 27, he was inspired to design a logo for the then imaginary bar. The Broward County native partnered with high school friend John Chiari and Paulie Scimeme to bring the idea to fruition.

"The art district in Fort Lauderdale, Florida is up-and-coming " Scharg says, "and I thought that was kind of cool. [I thought] it would be an interesting thing, especially with the concept, to do a music-style bar in this area."

27 Bar and Lounge features live music once a month, though a DJ often spins on weekends.

Inside the bar, framed, black-and-white photos of fallen artists hang on a white brick wall. A black-and-white montage of their faces covers the ceiling, while hand-painted murals featuring Brian Jones, Amy Winehouse, Robert Johnson and others cover two walls. Miami artist Ahol Sniffs Glue, known for painting eyes with lines on the lids, added his signature images in black and white to a hallway near the bathroom.

A door adjacent to that hallway leads to the patio, where hundreds of Ahol's eyes cover the exterior wall like a technicolor rainbow. Bright-green AstroTurf adds an additional pop of color to the scene ...
