The 66 History

The 66 was built on 22 acres adjacent to the port as a dock and marina by Phillips Petroleum (aka Phillips 66), hence the “66” moniker. In 1956, they built a roadside gas station and began planning what they coined as “The Pleasure Paradise”. In 1957, a marina with slips for 142 yachts was built on to the property followed by a 2 story hotel, restaurant and lounge in 1959.

But the site really gained notoriety (and its lasting iconic status) in 1965, when they planned a high rise! Despite a 15 story zoning limit by the city of Fort Lauderdale, the 17-story tower was erected. Containing 250 rooms, its signature touch was the penthouse, a mid-century modern space-age design that contained a rotating cocktail lounge which takes a spin every “66” minutes.
