An outdoor pop-up event space anchored with live music, cocktails, eats & good times in Las Olas on the banks of the New River.


Situated in the bustling neighborhood of Las Olas, on the banks of the New River, The Wharf is an open-air special event space that aims to further shape the city’s dynamic local culinary & cultural scene.

Boasting a setting unlike any other in South Florida, the over 1 acre open-air pop-up welcomes patrons looking to please their palates with some of the most delectable libations and culinary creations in South Florida.

Patrons quickly become regulars who come in to enjoy a rotation of restaurant-quality fare curated to please the foodie community. The dynamic atmosphere ensures that there is always something exciting going on providing guests with a breath of fresh air, they didn’t even know they needed!


The Wharf’s mission is to provide community organizations, notable brands, corporations and not-for-profit entities an affordable platform to produce, showcase and host memorable events open to the public.

“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. 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

Dev Motwani, CEO of Merrimac Ventures
