The Beach Club on Siesta Key has seen it all since it first opened as The J and K Beach Club in 1947. It has maintained its reputation as an icon of Siesta Key Village. On September 2nd The Beach Club celebrated its 70th anniversary with a full day of festivities.
In 1946 the original building was constructed at 5151 Ocean Blvd. The club remains at the same address today, but what was once a cozy one-room watering hole with a few tables now boasts three bars, 20 TVs and a 400-square-foot dance floor. It still remains a great place to grab a drink and listen to live music.
