TAPESTRY BAR @ THE BREAKERS RESORT PALM BEACH… “Classic Ambiance With a Taste of St. Tropez!”

Palm Beach is a favorite getaway for us. We love everything Palm Beach and are happy to share our adventures and experiences with others, as they are always undeniably fabulous times. Half for my husband’s business meetings and half for pleasure, we wanted to make a point to share our review of The Breakers Hotel & Spa with our readers. Specifically, the beautiful views of the architectural building that encompasses the delightful customer service and spirit of the property as well as our enjoyable time shared at the Tapestry Bar.

We got to The Breakers Resort on the final evening of our last trip to Palm Beach. The weather really wasn’t in our favor, as it was cloudy and raining off and on. It’s Florida. Rain happens there. But despite that minor setback, we continued on to have cocktails before our dinner back at our hotel.

Housed inside is the original 1920 lobby. A stunning timepiece of the city, The Breakers is reminiscent of strolling through a massive castle from centuries gone by, just with small modernized touched that keeps it in tune with the present. The above outdoor courtyard showcases a beautiful fountain, lush foliage and towering intricately-detailed walls.

The close-up of the fountain above offers a relaxing and calming environment for a stroll before dinner or cocktails.

A year-round vacation spot for travelers and return guests, this palatial resort presents a 140-acre oceanfront expanse. Italian-Renaissance decor will enchant your visual perception of the building. The property boasts over 1,800 staff members and continues to honor it’s family heritage through the tens of millions of dollars it receives each year from the original founder’s descendants. Constant renovation, modification and enhancements are maintained to keep The Breakers looking the way it does today. Now in it’s second century of existence, this incredible institution of the area still stuns, awes and flabbergasts its visitors and regulars alike.

I thought the Bromeliad flower above with its brilliant red was beautiful. I snapped a photo to share with you. I really appreciated the way it just jumped right out at me when I walked past it…the massive foliage in the shot below shows more of the plants and palms that border the courtyard.

We felt like we were in Germany walking into a towering castle as soon as we entered the main building that led to the Tapestry Bar, where we had cocktails that evening…

The intricate ceilings continued as we approached the hallway that led us into the lounge area below…

Named for its original antique tapestries hung on the walls of the ballroom-sized space below, we selected a comfortable mahogany-carved sofa and ordered our beverages…the vintage mahogany bar was constructed from an original turn-of-the-19th-century mantle from Caxton Hall in London!

The candle-lit ambiance was very pleasant. On an elongated table behind us were five decorative glass-mosaic candle flutes that enhances the environment…

We only had a couple of martinis while we were there, because we were meeting another couple at another location. But we both selected the Basil Watermelon Martini with watermelon infused pomegranate vodka and cranberry juice as our libations before departing…fruity but not overly sweet, reasonably priced for the quality and a stunning presentation. The live jazz trio was also a nice touch!

Tapestry bar is definitely on our list to return to on our next visit to Palm Beach. We’ll get more details about their amazing Happy Hour they offer there then as well!

  • ESTABLISHMENT / DECOR: Out of the nine restaurants and five bars inside The Breakers Hotel & Resort, we found ourselves visiting the Tapestry Bar. The old world feel of antique tapestries, history-filled furnishings, and mahogany bar made from a mantle from a great hall in London made it quite a conversation piece.
  • FOOD / DRINK: We’ll try the food on our next visit, but as far as the cocktails are concerned, our Basil Watermelon martinis were phenomenal.
  • LOCATION: One South County Road Palm Beach, Florida 33480 inside the Breakers Hotel & Spa.
  • HOURS: Sundays through Thursdays from 5 PM – 12 midnight, then on Fridays and Saturdays from 5 PM – 1 AM.
  • SERVICE / STAFF: The attention to detail and professionalism of the smiling staff was noticed and appreciated.
  • PRICE / VALUE: Fair prices for the savory high quality ingredients used.
  • CORKAGE FEE: No outside alcohol permitted inside Tapestry Bar.
  • PARKING: Valet parking at the main entrance allows for ease and quicker access into the hotel.
  • TOTAL BILL: Two Basil Watermelon martinis brought the bill to just over $28 (including tax). Would we do it again? Absolutely!
