From newly unveiled public artworks and gallery openings to trendy bars and eateries, here are the Palm Beach hot spots you won’t want to miss.
The latest public art installation has arrived at Rosemary Square. Created by world-renowned British Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare, the 20-foot fiberglass wind sculpture is the first large-scale public and private collaborative commission to come to West Palm Beach. The vibrant work of art acts as a focal point for the community, Shonibare notes. “Public art creates opportunities for dialogue,” he adds, “and the nature of this collaboration from spheres of public and private means that all voices are heard.” Moving forward, the artist’s wish is for the sculpture to bring people together and inspire the patronage of public art. 360 S. Rosemary Ave., West Palm Beach
Inspired by last year’s Unstoppable diamond jewelry collection, tennis legend, fashion designer and Jupiter resident Serena Williams launches Unstoppable Brilliance—her newest line of enamel and diamond necklaces. This latest collection features four reversible toggle necklaces in 14K gold vermeil, ceramic enamel and baguette-cut diamonds that frame an open circle, symbolizing strength and resilience. Beyond her pieces, Williams carries these values into the community as a portion of net proceeds from Unstoppable Brilliance will benefit Accion Opportunity Fund in its effort to support Black-owned small businesses. “I’ve always said everyone’s dream can come true if you just stick to it and work hard,” she says. “I hope this new Unstoppable Brilliance collection will continue to help those Black-owned small businesses that have shown their unstoppable perseverance to succeed over the last year.”

His drink of choice is undoubtedly the Orchid—a twist on a Manhattan with white orchids, ice spheres and vanilla bean. 2800 S. Ocean Blvd., Palm Beach
