Outdoor Cycling Class with Define body & mind
Crazy loud music, pumped up instructors, and 37 spin bikes made for an exhilarating October evening in the Courtyard. Hotel Palms teamed up with Define body & mind for Jacksonville’s first-ever outdoor rev (cycling) class. Huge thanks to The Perfect Pear and Atlantic Beach Brewing Company for sponsoring the event.
Surf Shacks Book Release Party
The week following Hurricane Irma, Hotel Palms welcomed Surf Shacks author, Matt Titone, for a release party where surf rock band, The Mother Gooses, played and copious amounts of Lagunitas beer was served. Taco Lu was also on site serving up delicious bites, but the best part of the evening – over $2000 was raised for hurricane relief.
International Yoga Day and Community Yoga
Hotel Palms partnered with Lululemon for International Yoga Day – this class also kicked off our Community Yoga, hosted by Yoga 4 Change the third Saturday of every month. Yoga 4 Change is a local non-profit organization that achieves meaningful change for veterans, incarcerated individuals, vulnerable youth, and those dealing with substance abuse.
To kick off summer, the Hotel Palms Courtyard was transformed into a drive-in movie experience. Nostalgic for adults and fun for kids, the classic ‘Honey I Shrunk the Kids’ was screened as the sun set. Popcorn was popping and local vendors, Show Pigeon Coffee, The Hotdog Party, and Hyppo Gourmet Ice Pops were onsite for guests to enjoy.

Blue Jay Listening Room Presents Whetherman, Pop-Up Show
On a magical night in November, our favorite local listening room, Blue Jay, hosted a pop-up show featuring the incredibly talented Nick Whetherman. Whetherman fans and locals with an appreciation for great storytelling and LIVE music made themselves comfortable in our Courtyard while Nick played an acoustic show and took us on a journey of what inspires him as a fire burned in the background.
Uppers & Downers Surf Film Premiere
Hundreds of people packed into the Hotel Palms courtyard on a chilly December night to watch the premiere of Uppers & Downers, a short film about time spent and adventures had on Vancouver Island by Justin Quintal, Tommy Witt, and Gunner Hughes. The night was punctuated by live music from local bands including The Young Step, Wise River, and Bradford Watters as Los Besos. Abundant amounts of PBR were served and a grand time was had by all.
Hotel Palms is a huge supporter of shopping locally and during the holiday season, we invite select vendors to set up shop in our Courtyard so members of the community can do their holiday shopping. This year, 8 vendors including Sailors Siren, Couture Jems, Really Good Beer Stop, Aqua East Surf Shop, The Admiral’s Daughters, 33 Peppers, Arabella Knits and Creative Designs popped up and sold a variety of goods and gifts to locals looking to check items off their shopping lists. Even though it was a balmy 75 degrees (got to love December in Florida), hot chocolate was served to compliment the artisanal treats provided by Jayne Doughnuts.
