I’ve got a secret. But luckily for you, I’m about to spill the beans.
After a fabulous but long day exploring and filming in Delray Beach, my local guide suggested we retire to 3rd and 3rd.
"It's the coolest place in town, " she said. "Right back there."
I said I hadn't seen the sign.
She smiled. "It's sort of an underground hangout. It doesn’t have a sign. You just have to know about it."
Turns out this hidden gem was just the medicine I needed.
A fat leather couch invited me to melt into its arms, and I did not refuse. I nursed a glass of Malbec, chatted with new friends, and grazed on sea scallops seared and basted in thyme butter.
I thought it couldn’t get more perfect when a beautiful wisp-of-a-girl took to the stage with her guitar and sang a haunting lullaby. Her voice was true and sweet, and I had to wipe away a few tears when she was done.
3rd on 3rd felt like home. Only with a lot better food and music.
I’d advise you not to miss it. Just don't tell anyone how you found it.
Insider’s Tip: 3rd and 3rd is located at 301 NE 3rd Ave, Delray Beach, FL; 561- 303-1939. When you see the eclectic sculpture of the nude woman drinking wine you’ll know you’re at the correct spot.
