When you’re sitting on the second floor patio deck of a CityPlace restaurant and looking down at a live band playing on the CityPlace outdoor stage surrounded by world famous shops and entertainment, you probably wouldn’t believe that 15 years ago, none of it was there.
Downtown West Palm Beach is one of South Florida’s oldest cities, but it is now a place of modern living that still pays homage to its history. Downtown West Palm Beach has gone through an amazing transformation over the last two decades: luxury condominium high-rises, world-class shopping, and phenomenal entertainment all combine to make it one of South Florida’s most desirable cities.
What’s more, is you can walk across it in about 15 minutes!
There are four things that make Downtown West Palm Beach the perfect city to live and work in: West Palm Beach is home to some of the finest living arrangements in the world. There are any number of condominium buildings for all budgets and lifestyles. However, almost all of them offer a basic level of amenities that include a pool, parking garage (which is very important in any city), fitness centers and 24-hour concierge services. Some, like One City Plaza and Two City Plaza offer valet parking services and have rooftop pools with some of the most beautiful panoramic views in the world. Whichever building you choose is always a short walk away from anything you’ll ever need.
CityPlace is an open air shopping and entertainment center that also offers living opportunities for a truly immersive lifestyle. CityPlace is home to familiar shops and restaurants like Macys, Cheesecake Factory, GAP, Banana Republic, Victoria’s Secret, Panera Bread, Starbucks, Brio Tuscan Grille and Blue Martini. Of course, it isn’t all about eating and shopping; there is also entertainment!
CityPlace offers live outdoor concerts, Revolutions (a bowling/arcade/sports bar), and a brand new, world-class movie theater with stadium seating, IMAX and 3D theaters. CityPlace is also the location of several downtown festivals and fairs including some of the best family-friendly events in South Florida.
Clematis Street is exactly what it sounds like: a street, but it is much more than that. Clematis focuses more on dining and entertainment than on shopping. The street stretches all the way to the intracoastal and the intracoastal walkway that bisects the city from North to South. The restaurants are a blend of famous (Rocco’s Tacos, Duffy’s Sports Grill) and local (The Alchemist, Grease Burger Bar), but you will never make a mistake for a delicious meal. Clematis Street is often blocked off for a number of festivals including Moonfest, St. Patrick’s Day Festival and Clematis by Night (every Thursday night) which features live bands and a number of food vendors.
Downtown West Palm Beach is completely self-sufficient and offers enough food, shopping and entertainment for a lifetime, but there is more to the city than that. West Palm Beach is also a cultural center with the Norton Museum of Art and the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. Don’t forget about Sunfest, the annual music festival that stretches across the entire city for 5 days and has had recent bands such as Fallout Boy, Ellie Goulding, Kid Rock and more! And of course, less than a mile away is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world: Palm Beach!
