Whiskey Joe's Bar & Grill Brings Key West to Key Biscayne
There are actually more beach-themed bars that play Jimmy Buffet and Bob Marley in Manhattan than in Miami. Which is a sincere shame because sometimes you just want to put on your best flip flops, drink a rum punch, and enjoy the warm sun and salt-tinged breezes.
Parrotheads rejoice, because Whiskey Joe's is coming to Key Biscayne July of this year. The Tampa-based bar and grill is opening a Key Biscayne location at Rickenbacker Marina, at the former Rickenbacker Fish Company site.
This beach-shack-on-steroids will feature dockside drinking and dining on an outdoor patio that seats 300, a giant tiki hut, live music, and lots of reggae music.
The menu, which is taken largely from the Tampa location, will feature
mostly seafood and bar snacks. Sliders are available in Angus burger,
BBQ pulled pork, blackened fish, or crabcake ($10.99 for four).
bites ($10.99), beer cheese soup ($4.99 and $6.99), and shrimp and crab
mac 'n cheese ($18.99) all stand out as stuff that goes with a tall rum punch.
In addition, Whiskey
Joe's will feature a raw bar, extensive beer selection, and tropical
drinks served in coconut monkeys. When was the last time you drank out
of a coconut monkey?
We're frankly looking forward to a place
where the dress code consists of Havianas and a tiki shirt. Because
sometimes your lunch should come with a side of SPF 50 and a beer
Whiskey Joe's Tiki Bar in Miami will look similar to their Tampa location (pictured).
