GREAT atmosphere, top notch house beers, and fairly good guest tap list. Negatives: food (but really... its a beer/hookah/coffee/tea bar with light snacks so I'll rate is as a "didn't try" though I did) and pricing. Not so cheap.

One HUGE negative: when a band shows up, they stop serving beer out of glassware and go to plastic cups. Yup. Plastic cups, like what they serve BMC out of at college bars. I guess I can understand that from a safety and liability standpoint, but come on. I didn't drive all the way to Boca Raton because Boca is the place to be. I drove to Boca specially to drink beer at the Funky Buddha; the fact that a band was there was secondary. It really irked me that I couldn't fully enjoy the beer as it was meant to be served. I guess I could have moved to the homebrew side of the house at that point in the evening to really satisfy the beer geek in me, but I like sitting at the bar and chatting with the locals. Fortunately, the beer here packs in so much flavor and aroma, that the plastic cups don't get too much in the way. Still, it's a classless way to serve very classy beer.

If you go here just for the beer on a non-band night, you'll thoroughly enjoy yourself. It's a cool place with great house beers. And if Hookah is your thing, you'll dig it even more. If Hookah is not your thing: fear not. The ventilation in the place is excellent so even if you're immediate neighbor is smoking, you'll not be bothered by the smoke.

Oh, and no more growler fills. Bummer. But they can't keep up with local demand, so it's a good move all around.

The Funky Buddha creates quality craft brews with an awesome laid back atmosphere. I have lived behind the Brewery and Lounge every since it opened when it was just a hookah lounge. Funky Buddha has made a name for themselves and it has clearly made a lasting impression on the beer world. Funky Buddha makes amazing crafts beers that are truly one of a kind. The beers like their Last Snow White Chocolate Coconut Coffee Porter are some of the most unique crafts i have ever come across and they leave you always wanting more. The atmosphere is that of a coffee shop in Amsterdam. If you live in South Florida and are into the craft beer scene then i am sure you are aware of the product Funky Buddha puts out. If you are a lucky enough to be a local then you can become a member of their 18oz Snifter club and enjoy larger pours for the same price. Funky Buddha happy hour is great with discounted Funky Buddha Drafts from 5-7pm or 8pm if you are a Snifter Member.
