within minutes of I-95, Davie Boulevard and U.S. 1, the property is in close proximity to 3,500 residences recently built or currently under construction in the Tarpon River neighborhood.

Long considered a local dive, Grady’s was one of the oldest bars in Fort Lauderdale. Grady Copeland, a Georgia native who hitchhiked to Fort Lauderdale on a vegetable truck in 1933, purchased the bar for $1,200 and opened its doors on New Year’s Eve in 1940. Two weeks later, he married Irene Davis Copeland, who helped managed the bar during World War II and the 1950s.


“After Grady’s long and colorful history, the second and third-generation owners were ready to retire from the bar business,” said Hyatt. “The new owner plans to redevelop the infill site into a mixed-use property for retail and residential uses.”
