Old Bus Station, Fort Lauderdale

The Old Bus Station is located on a corner site and is a landmark for the area. Built in 1926 in a Spanish eclectic style with Beaux Arts elements, it was originally a three-story building. Following a hurricane less than a year later, the building was cut to one story. Renovated a number of times, the building became a retail center for a time, and is now the venue for the popular Art Bar nightclub.
