The History Behind…

A Real Local Landmark

The Historic Downtowner is a True Fort Lauderdale Historic Gem. Dating All the way back to the Roaring 20’s.

The hurricane of 1926 destroyed the Maxwell Arcade’s electric-lit sign and much of the building — but the arcade lived on. Named after its developer, Fred Maxwell, it originally opened in 1925 and was an example of classic Mediterranean Revival architecture. The Downtowner Saloon, which has been open for 22 years, is now located at the site of the old arcade. The Downtowner has Sunday brunch, trivia Tuesdays, and live music on Saturday nights. Next door, the Maxwell Room hosts events such as weddings, receptions and corporate events.
