Sip & Socialize
For the first sip of the day, head to Ceremony Coffee Roasters in Harbor Point. Over a warm cup of joe, you can relax or work remotely while overlooking the harbor and iconic Domino Sugar building.

During the Spring and Summer months, one of the most unique outdoor experiences along the waterfront promenade is Ouzo Beach. An extension of Ouzo Bay Mediterranean Kouzina, Ouzo Beach resembles the elegant courtyard of a Mediterranean-style villa with gates, stone, marble, lush greenery, and a large wooden trellis. Feel the breeze coming off the harbor while enjoying wine, cocktails, and light bites.
