Downtown Lake Worth: 6 awesome new things you need to check out!

With a quick walk around downtown Lake Worth, you’re bound to find something new and exciting. It’s no surprise that Lake Worth is Palm Beach County’s hub for artists, creative minds and local entrepreneurs. And it seems things are ever changing in this small town.

Here are five new things to check out on your next visit to downtown Lake Worth. 

Rudy’s Pub has a new location

If you liked Rudy’s Pub before, you’ll definitely like the new location, which opened Feb. 14. It’s a larger space, three times larger than their old space to be exact. They’re now in the space below the Bamboo Room that was once an incubator for artists, after-school musical training and a working space for entrepreneurs. 

“It’s a nice big bar, very comfortable. The acoustics are great in this room. It has the same feeling as the old space, but better,” says owner Mary Sisoian.

The new Rudy’s on J Street has live music six days a week and features a big bar with original theater chairs from Bamboo Room. For now, the bar serves only beer, wine and snacks. 

Rudy’s Pub: 21 S J St. Lake Worth; 561-602-5307.

Revelry’s new outdoor patio

It feels like yesterday we were announcing the opening of this beer and wine bar. With the wine-colored palette walls, dimmed lighting and mismatched-furniture, Revelry has become the chill-out lounge many locals needed. 

Now, they’ve expanded their seating area to an outdoor patio in the back. More palettes have been used, but this time to create seating and a coffee table to take the lounge outside. 

If you haven’t been there yet, here are 5 reasons why you should visit Revelry. 

Revelry; 17 South J Street Lake Worth; 954-770-8822; Hours: Open daily from 4:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.

Newest tapas bar also has games

A soulful new tapas spot opened in January on Lake Worth’s up-and-coming Lucerne Avenue. It serves an eclectic menu of small plates, wine and local beers. But Three of Hearts aims to be more than a place for a quick bite or sip. It is also a space for playing board games. In fact, the menu lists 22 games – everything from Rummikub to Jenga to Scrabble to Clue – available for playing.

Three of Hearts: 512 Lucerne Ave., Lake Worth; 561-923-8573; Hours: Open Tuesday through Friday from 3 to 10 p.m., Saturday from 2 to 11 p.m. and Sunday for brunch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Lunch service is expected to start in February.
