The Luminary Hotel & Co. officially opened the doors today to Beacon Social Drinkery, its showcase rooftop bar which crowns the new boutique hotel in downtown Fort Myers.
Perched atop the 12-story hotel, Beacon offers a wide variety of wines, craft cocktails and beers to complement a sophisticated tapas-style menu, all served with breathtaking views from high above the Caloosahatchee River. Beacon Social Drinkery is open Sunday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday through Saturday 4 p.m. to midnight. Capacity will be managed on a first-come, first-served basis.
“We are thrilled to open Beacon as a sophisticated nightspot for our guests and local residents alike,” said Bob Megazzini, general manager for Luminary Hotel & Co. “The views are spectacular, and the setting truly one-of-a-kind for this market.”
While taking in the nearly 360-degree views of the riverfront and downtown area, guests at Beacon can explore an impressive menu of specialty drinks, local craft beers, wines and “bubbles.” The rooftop bar menu of tantalizing small plates features Pan Asian and Latin-inspired selections such as Tuna Tataki, Snapper Ceviche, Spicy Chicken “Mole” Empanadas, Lemongrass Shrimp Sliders and more.
The unique 1,600-square-feet space will also provide a new option for private social or corporate gatherings. Beacon Social Drinkery can comfortably accommodate up to 120 guests, with seating for 105.
Luminary Hotel & Co. features 243 guest rooms and suites; The Silver King Ocean Brasserie (scheduled to open in November); The Lobby Bar; Ella Mae’s Diner; Dean Street Coffee Roastery & Retail; The Workshop culinary theater; an indoor and outdoor fitness facility; and a spacious pool area on the fourth floor featuring an event deck overlooking the Caloosahatchee River.
