It's actually called the The Hollywood Beach BRoadwalk, I have no idea why but everyone just calls it the boardwalk.
Anyways, I love the boardwalk for many reasons, the first reason being is it's gorgeous. The palms are perfect and the water is my favorite shade of turquoise. It's a perfect place to shoot content if that's youre thing! Second, there is a band shell next to Margaritaville where they have live music every week Wednesday-Sunday 7-10pm where you can bring your own drinks and just chill. And third, you can walk around with a drink in your hand!!
I could go on and on about how much I love hanging out here but I will just tell you my favorite spots instead.
5 O'clock Somewhere Bar + Grill: Located across the street from the beach on the inter coastal, it's a perfect spot to relax with friends and watch boats pass. They have the cutest set up with sandy fire pits and adirondack chairs as well as high and low top tables. The menu isn't very big but everything is good. The tacos are my favorite. You can also catch the Water Taxi here every Thursday-Sunday 11AM, 1PM, 3PM, 5PM, and 7:30PM if you want to venture up to Fort Lauderdale on the water!
Landshark Bar + Grill: Located right above the resort pool and next to the wave rider, it has the perfect view of the boardwalk, beach and band shell so its a great place to hangout, have dinner and listen to live music.The Caribbean Chicken Salad is my favorite!
Margaritaville is fairly new to Hollywood Beach, and it has definitely brought a lot more attention and traffic to the area. Above you can see Land Shark Bar + Grill and the band shell in the background. Two of my faves.
Bonny + Read's: One of the reasons I love this place, IT'S TURQUOISE. If you don't know, i'm obsessed with the color lol. Besides that, the food is great and the bartenders are waiters are so fun. It was actually featured on Bar Rescue which is pretty cool! See below.
Nick's Bar + Grill: One of my favorite bars in Hollywood Beach because they have live music every night (shout out to my boy Cliff) AND its the only bar that stays open past 10pm on the boardwalk, so keep that in mind if you're heading here for a night out. It's definitely a party scene at night but it's pretty chill during the day. I love that they have a corner bar that serves people outside so you can grab a drink and keep walking if you'd like.
Roccos Pizza: I love their breakfast calzones! Also great spot to get pizza and watch live music Wednesday-Sunday 5-8pm. It can get loud though!
Riptide: Great place to grab drinks and listen to live music. (No liquor)
Broadwalk Bar and Grill: Great place for an Italian dinner with a view. They also have a pizza window so you can grab a slice to go.
I hope that if you ever make your way down to Hollywood Beach you check out some of these spots. Hollywood Beach is a gem and you'll wish you visited sooner. Also, shout out to my brother Brad for introducing me to most of these places, you're the real Hollywood Beach MVP lol.
