#Libation: Beach Bar and Grille, Pier House Resort - Stephen A. Smith standing next to a bottle of wine - Liquor

The Beach Bar and Grille at the Pier House Resort is like a tropical paradise in one of those Corona beer commercials. Enjoy a cocktail while soaking up sun on a lounger propped in the sand. Try the Pier House Rum Punch to enhance the island feel — Cruzan Orange, banana liqueur, Malibu, pineapple and orange juice with a floater of Myer’s Rum.

They also have other cocktails like Pomegranate Passion with real pomegranate and pineapple juice or the Honey Dew Ball made with Patron, melon Liqueur and pineapple juice. There is also strawberry, banana, mango raspberry and passion fruit daiquiris, coladas and margaritas for something ice cold and fruity. The outside tiki hut has a surprisingly deep selection of wine (eight whites, five reds) and beer (15 varieties).

The island atmosphere is perfect for locals and visitors. Patrons are friendly and the mix of people can make for good times.

The Beach Bar and Grille also has excellent food. Hogfish tacos, lobster BLT sliders, grilled mahi and Cubano sliders are all popular choices. For snacks, we recommend a starter such as the peel-and-eat shrimp, Cayo Hueso calamari, lobster mac and cheese or lump crab cakes.

The Pier House is located at 0 Duval Street.
