On Saturday, Dec. 31st, join Florida’s biggest and brightest burlesque beauties to celebrate the beginning of 2017! From the creator and producer of Key West Burlesque, Tatah DuJour, comes a brand new event in Islamorada. “An Enchanted New Year’s Eve in the Florida Keys” at Amara Cay Resort is a star-studded night of burlesque entertainment. 

The event begins at 8 p.m. with a VIP dinner and fabulous floorshow.

At 9:30 p.m. the doors open to the general admission audience. Gorgeous go-go dancers and stilt walkers will meet and greet arriving guests and provide pre-show entertainment while DJ Giancarlo spins a variety of music. There are two shows scheduled — 10:30 and 11:30 p.m.
