The Walking

The City of West Palm Beach has so many live music, dining and entertainment options packed into a half mile radius, it’s really hard to know where to start.  The best tpart is, if you want to enjoy more than one in a single evening, you can easily walk right next door and catch an entirely different act and experience a completely different scene.  From the Delta Blues at B.B. Kings to an authentic Irish pub at O’Shea’s, there’s a scene and a sound for everyone.

The City of West Palm Beach is known as a very walkable city and rates an 95 from walkscore.com.  There is live music everywhere you turn.

Most of the live music happens either on Rosemary or Clematis streets but there are also some small gems scattered in between, like The Blind Monk on Evernia or some large treasures right off Flagler like the Norton Museum and their Art After Dark music/art series.  Regardless, every live music venue mentioned in this article is within walking distance of one another or accessible via free downtown trollies.

A walk to more formal evening concert at the Kravis Center could include a show by Greg Allman, Steve Miller, Buddy Guy or The Moody Blues.  A casual stroll to the outdoor patio of the Backyard Bar for an informal night gives you the finest local musicians (and an occasional national artist sitting in) playing under the stars.  You can head over to B.B. Kings for some of the best in rock and blues or walk down Clematis Street for some country music at Grease Burger Bar.

Whatever your appetite or musical preference, it can be found with just a short walk from one block to another.  It’s all about people getting out of their cars, enjoying the weather,  walking around and having a good time.  That’s what sets this city apart from the rest and when you add the unbelievable number of outdoor concerts, it’s in a league all by itself.  Every city has bars and clubs and West Palm Beach definitely shines in that category (more on that later) but it’s the numerous outdoor venues that set this city apart from the rest, and that all begins on the waterfront.
