Nightclub
“FWD is an outdoor day and night club, and a pretty cool place to hang out and dance. There is a pool (extra charge) and cabanas for rent with bottle service. Some weekends they will bring in big name DJs; check their Facebook for events. On Friday and Saturday nights there is a cover and a line usually forms, so get there a bit early. Avoid if it is raining, the venue is entirely outdoors; but if the weather holds you get some beautiful views dancing right on the river. There is a dress code, check the website for details. Open until 7 PM Thurs/Sun and 2:30 AM Fri/Sat.”
