The key’s hidden beach bar
You may not have heard, but recently a little beach bar opened on Key Biscayne. It’s not technically on the beach, but you can see the ocean and even hear it (between the reggae songs). And it’s not technically public, but it’s not too hard to get in.
The place is Las Olas, at Key Colony, and it’s the only beach bar on the key where you can get a cold beer for three bucks. They’ve got all sorts of stuff to eat also, from empanadas and paninis to ceviche and paella. The little down-low watering hole actually opened two weeks ago, and is run by my friend and key rat Lawrence Kelly. It has a great little vibe and is worth checking out Friday afternoons for happy hour. Hours of operation are whenever there’s sun out, so don’t bother going on a rainy day.
