What do you get when you combine a traditional German beer hall with modern technology? Hopportunities, Delray’s self-service bar with 55 draft lines devoted to craft beer, hard seltzer, cider, nitro coffee, hard kombucha, and natural wine. For owner John Macatangay, the concept is a place for people to congregate and build community. Hopportunities features live music and events such as trivia, comedy nights, karaoke, a corn hole league, and music bingo. Sustenance is provided by Lola’s, the on-site food truck serving bar food with influences and flavors from Macatangay’s native Philippines.
Entrepreneur Ginger Flesher-Sonnier is re-creating Palm Beach life in the 1960s at Delray’s Throōw Social—along with opportunities to dance, play Skeech, lounge in VIP cabanas, or do some axe throwing. The 11,000-square-foot facility offers every activity imaginable, along with chef-driven cuisine and a mixologist-led beverage program. An offshoot of Flesher-Sonnier’s Throw Social hot spot in Washington, D.C., the Delray location is an adult playground that specializes in what she calls “competitive socializing.” You may even become so wrapped up in TapGlo Ping-Pong or Warp Hole (corn hole on steroids) that you forget to take pictures for Instagram.
