The casually elegant new restaurant and bar Lightkeepers at The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami is located just off the island’s gorgeous waters. It features a contemporary, coastal-inspired dining room, a cool, casual indoor/outdoor bar and a beverage program featuring unique, hand-crafted cocktails. Named as an homage to the lighthouse keepers who watched over Key Biscayne’s historic Cape Florida Lighthouse in the 1800’s, Lightkeepers has become a premier waterfront dining and imbibing destination.
A featured cocktail, the John W.B. Thompson Smoked Old Fashioned made with Ron Cartavio Rum 12 years, LaPhroaig Islay Scotch, Santa Teresa Rhum Orange Liqueur and Orange Bitters, is inspired by the history of the lighthouse. On July 23, 1836, a band of Seminoles attacked the Cape Florida Light, setting the lighthouse tower ablaze. Despite suffering multiple rifle ball wounds and major burns, the assistant keeper, John W.B. Thompson, endured the siege and protected the structure. Though he survived the night, the Cape Florida Light was extinguished from 1836 to 1846.
Lightkeepers is located at The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami at 455 Grand Bay Drive in Key Biscayne, Florida.
