The Hollywood Beach Boardwalk
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 drop dead GORGEOUS. The palms are perfect and the water is always my favorite shade of turquoise. 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.
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.
Bonnie + 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.
Little Venice: You may not guess that they would have good breakfast, but they do and its SO CHEAP for a basic big breakfast, only $4.90 for 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, 2 meats and homefries. You cant beat that when you have the gorgeous boardwalk scenery...it's also a great place to people watch which is what I'm doing in the picture 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.
Broadwalk Bar and Grill: Here we go again with the "bRoadwalk" I dont really get it, so I'm going to ignore it and continue to call it the boardwalk lol. This place is SOO YUMMY. Some of the best service + Italian food I have had here in south Florida.
Hollywood Brewing Co.: This place is super chill with some really good apps and local beer. I'm not much of a beer drinker, JT is, but I LOVE the Avocado Egg Rolls! Oh and you can order a whole bottle of Prosecco for $12.
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.
Stay tuned for more hot spots in and around Hollywood Beach, I was just getting started :)
