Fernandina Beach, Florida: A New Bar at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island

There’s no doubt that many of us are planning our escape from the cold. Snow birds heading down to Amelia Island should be sure to stop by the new Lobby Bar and Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, inspired by classic bourbon and whiskey drinks from throughout history. Cocktails on offer include a Smoked Old Fashioned as well as plenty of drinks featuring small-batch craft spirits. The bar will also have a sushi bar component as well. 4750 Amelia Island Pkwy., Fernandina Beach, Florida; 904-277-1100; ritzcarlton.com.
