Just Beachy

Jay Hartington’s discerning taste for fashion, food and wellness merge effortlessly in Palm Beach, an exclusive haven of luxury and charm. As the co-founder of Marisa Collections, a famed retail emporium, Jay is no stranger to the splendor of Palm Beach’s hidden gems. Here, the dapper gentleman shares his favorites.


First stop on a “Must See” tour of Palm Beach? The Royal Poinciana Plaza is the perfect place to start a Palm Beach experience.

Go-to coffee spot? Sant Ambroeus at The Royal Poinciana Plaza and my go-to order is an iced coffee with a splash of almond milk. It’s the perfect kickstart to the day!

Preferred fitnSqueeze ess routine? Pilates Palm Beach in the Royal Poinciana Plaza has the best classes and I always leave feeling energized.

Any hidden Palm Beach gems? Field & Greens is my secret spot. Amazing food and relaxed ambiance; it’s where I go to unwind.

Best golf spot? Seminole. It’s a golfer’s paradise with stunning views.

Water-wise… I highly recommend taking a boat cruise on Lake Worth. Nothing beats a beautiful day on the water with good company.

Your ideal day. I’d spend my morning biking on the Lake Trail. Then, I’d grab a coffee at Sant Ambroeus and take a walk down to the beach. Once the sun starts to set, I’d head to Swifty’s at The Colony Hotel for the Happy Hour.

Favorite store? Marissa Collections, but I am biased. Otherwise, I’d pick Eleventy for great menswear.

Favorite local restaurant? Buccan sandwich shop – hands down. The flavors are incredible, and they know how to satisfy a foodie’s cravings.
