Examiner: It’s always 5 o’clock at Margaritaville in South Florida
The much-anticipated Margaritaville Beach Resort finally opened its doors in Hollywood, Florida on Saturday, November 14. The tropical paradise resort celebrated its grand opening with the world’s most famous land shark, Jimmy Buffet, performing live on the boardwalk before resort guests with local beach-goers catching the show on the big screen behind the resort.
The 17-story destination resort boasts 349 rooms and has breathed new life into the Hollywood Boardwalk, drawing crowds from around the world to chill out in true “5 o’clock somewhere” style. Even the famous Hollywood Bandshell has come to life, featuring live music most nights of the week.
Guests and visitors can leave the sports coats and fancy shoes at home, this resort is a Key West themed escape, complete with a three pools, poolside cabanas, eight bars and restaurants, an 11,000 square-foot spa, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a flow rider surf simulator right on the boardwalk. Buffet’s style is showcased on every floor from song lyrics cleverly lining the halls and chandeliers made from margarita glasses dripping from the high ceilings. Throughout the property brightly colored works of art from local artists hang on the walls, but the signature piece is the more than 10- foot flip-flop complete with beer opener that greets visitors and guest immediately upon entry into lobby. The giant shimmering blue shoe was actually a gift from one of Buffet’s dear friends, an artist who chose to remain anonymous.
The dining at the resort is open to resort guests and the public. At It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar & Grill resort diners can enjoy meals overlooking one of the resort’s sparkling pools. Land Shark Bar is nestled high over the boardwalk, making it the best spot for capping off a day at the beach. Both restaurants feature a varied menu of and an array of vacation-worthy cocktails. JWB, the resort’s steakhouse, is favored to be the crème de la crème of the property and opens soon.
