EggBar Is Coming to New Hotel Residence in West Palm Beach

After AKA West Palm opens on Dec. 1 in downtown West Palm Beach, the five-story property featuring 215 brand-new hotel residences will soon welcome EggBar as part of its commercial space. The new property will be the luxury hospitality brand’s second South Florida property, and each home features full kitchens, washers and dryers, and terraces in its rooms. The property will also offer a lounge, bar, pool, gym, conference rooms and a pet spa. Along with EggBar in 2023, the site will be home to the new location of The Blind Monk.

Located at 695 South Olive Ave. in the heart of West Palm Beach’s central business district, the five-story property will combine a private residence’s ambiance with a luxury hotel’s indulgent services. It will feature a state-of-the-art Technogym, an executive conference room and smaller conference nooks. AKA West Palm offers views of the Intracoastal and nearby beach access. To cater to business travelers, AKA West Palm also features a private and convenient conference space available to book for executive meetings, with seating for up to 10 people. 

“With an influx of visitors from the Northeast, we are already seeing interest from travelers familiar with the AKA brand and our properties in New York City, Philadelphia, and Boston,” Larry Korman says, CEO of AKA. “As West Palm’s reputation as ‘the Wall Street of the South’ develops, we are confident that those who are traveling for work will be delighted to make a home away from home at AKA.” 

Jaime Sturgis, CEO of Native Realty Co., along with Sales Director Kaley Tuning and Senior Associate Sara Dorfman, represented AKA Hotel in a lease with EggBar. Native oversees retail and restaurant leasing at the AKA Hotel. EggBar, led by entrepreneur and business coach Roy Assad, will occupy a 1,800-square-foot space on the hotel’s ground floor. When it opens next year, EggBar plans to offer a full breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner menu with a robust wine selection. It operates with the mission to “elevate the egg.”

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
