Every Thursday evening, the upscale mega-yacht marina, restaurant and waterfront lounge at Island Gardens transforms into a swanky oasis where South Florida’s elite can let loose and enjoy fine cuisine alongside delightful entertainment.
This weekly event, cleverly titled “Forget Me Not,” is carefully curated to outperform the typical Ladies’ Night. It frequently involves decked-out dancers, a soundtrack performed by resident DJ Vincent Daubas and sparklers to light the night. The rosé is endless and the bar remains open throughout the evening. As the lights of Miami dim, guests can settle into a cabana and appreciate the location’s endless views of Biscayne Bay and the megayachts that occupy it.
Guests are welcome to enter the party by land or by sea and are encouraged to stay late for the full Miami experience.
Alongside the weekly festivity, The Deck at Island Gardens offers a unique menu created by Executive Chef Alfio Longo. Signature menu items range from small bites to creative concoctions like the Seafood Tower, with chef’s selection of freshly sourced oysters, whole lobster, jumbo prawns, King Crab legs, tuna tartare and ceviche sreved with lemon, shallots mignonette and horseradish. The Deck also serves a selection of salads, brick oven pizzas, table-side large plates like hand-tossed arugula in a Parmigiano Reggiano cheese wheel and more.
The Deck at Island Gardens is open on weekend evenings (Thursday to Sunday) from 6 p.m. to midnight. This complete destination also offers weekly Sunday Brunch from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m., Sundays #OnDeck starting at 4 p.m. and daily Sunset Sparkling Happy Hours.
The party begins at 8 p.m., following the location’s 6 p.m. Happy Hour
