Want to know about the newest HOT SPOT in our Downtown West Palm Beach? We now have a very cool wine bar, The Blind Monk!
I keep telling you how living in Downtown West Palm Beach just keeps getting better and better, well it does!! This charming, yet quaint place on the ground floor of one of the new high rises is called the Blind Monk and it is located at the Whitney Condominium on 410 Evernia Street, between Dixie & Quadrille in Downtown West Palm Beach. And for those who need to drive, there is plenty of parking along the street. How cool it is for us local folks to just walk to another condo for a glass of wine and order a cheese board? What makes this place even better is that it is owned by Ben Lubin, a Marine Corps veteran and our very own Mayor’s son.
Wait till you see this place. Honest, it is so cool! There is this HUGE frame on the wall with black and white films being played, bistro tables, a sofa and a bar. There are plenty of seats outside too for those like me that enjoy the evening with our dogs or just loving our downtown WPB weather.
Ben says that he has 90 wines to be poured by the glass and there are more than 300 full bottles available on a list from around the world. Prices start at $6 a glass or $24 per bottle. I have been there several times and can recommend my ‘FAV’ is the J Lohr Chardonnay. It’s a great glass of wine! Okay… I order 2 each time I go, but I love this wine that they have!! Try a glass and if you love it too then meet me there one night and we will have Ben open us our own bottle! The Blind Monk also has 13 microbrews, a coffee bar with espresso and cappuccino, and sparkling juices.
Now back to those Yummy cheese boards that are going to cost me more treadmill time. There will be weekly choices of cold cuts, cold seafood, fresh fruits, crackers and dark chocolates. It is really fun because you pick
and choose what you want. Make note of the cheeses you love and order them the next time like we do!
The Blind Monk is open daily from 5 pm. to 1 am and their phone number is (561) 833-3605. Check out their website at www.TheBlindMonk.com. The Blind Monk is the perfect place to go after a night of Ginger’s Dance
Party or anything else you may be doing. See you there!
Until next time!
Ginger……. Shaken not stirred
