Wildernis Café and Bar will soon add rooftop hotspot to their name with the opening of their latest venture, you guessed it, a rooftop-style space overlooking the ocean and bringing a whole new level of cool to Palm Beach.
A Mediterranean-inspired space with wide windows opening out to reveal the beach below, tons of natural light flooding in from every direction (including the retractable roof) and a secret laneway, Wildernis Bar and Café is the Coast’s new go-to for communal dining and cocktails.
Owners Josh and Andy have completely transformed the once dark, cramped space, installing skylights, Spanish tiled floors and a custom built bar perfect for watching the sun set and soaking up the sea breeze.
Serving up large share plates and signature cocktails, Wildernis Bar & Restaurant is the epitome of the laidback Palm Beach vibe you know and love, with a touch of style thrown in for good measure.
Four signature cocktails will be made fresh daily – think Watermelon Margaritas and Blueberry Amaretto Sours – along with more varieties of Espresso Martinis than you could ever imagine.
To eat, don’t go past the European-style Cured Meat Board, Fresh Oysters Three Ways and Szechuan Peppered Squid. Everything on the menu is made from locally sourced goods, further enhancing the community vibe of the venue.
There’s no doubt Wildernis Bar and Restaurant is set to bring a fresh new feel to the already thriving Palm Beach foodie scene.
See you there for a sunset cocktail.
