FORT MYERS, Fla. (Aug. 20, 2018) – Even before Society opened late last fall at the Bell Tower Shops, it promised to be different and it’s kept its promise.
Since opening, the 14,000 square-foot multi-level restaurant and event space has featured weekly entertainment ranging from appearances by Shawn Wayans and NSYNC members to noted international DJs and Southwest Florida’s favorite local reggae band SOWFLO. In addition to their entertainment lineup, Society offers a variety of dining options from an expanded all day menu at the upstairs Treehouse to early and late dining downstairs in the main dining area.
Now, in the spirit of big city brunch options available from Miami to Las Vegas, Society’s Sunday Brunch has launched and it is unlike anything Southwest Florida has experienced before.
First there’s the menu. Items start at $10 and include lobster mac & cheese, cornbread and peaches, crab cakes, sushi, oysters, larger plates featuring surf and turf eggs benedict, crispy chicken and waffles, a loaded breakfast burger, peanut butter vanilla flap jacks and truffle grilled cheese, shrimp and grits, a lobster roll, white Russian French toast and more. There are also shareables that serve up to four guests including seafood platters and a tomahawk steak carved tableside. Then there are the unlimited 60-minute drinks for $24.95 that range from bloody marys and maple bacon infused old fashions to cilantro lime rickeys and a Breakfast of Champions – aged rum infused with frosted flakes, Rumchatta, cream and espresso. Society’s party sangria varies in flavors and is served in a huge party glass with smoking dry ice and serves up to five people.
But it’s the atmosphere throughout the day that will have Southwest Floridians feeling like they have left the West Coast of Florida. Brunch begins on a lighter note at 10 a.m. each Sunday with an electric violinist playing a soothing mix of big band classics. At 3 p.m. the party really gets started with a D.J. kicking off a set of livelier, high energy club favorites to compliment the violinist’s impressive electric sound. Patrons can be seen dancing along with Society’s servers (all clad in white with Day of the Dead inspired masks and spraying the room with fog blowers) while the champagne girls roam the room filling glasses, waving sparklers, light up glow sticks and dancing atop the banquet tables in flowing butterfly costumes.
“Southwest Florida was begging for a brunch experience like this,” said Brad Cozza, owner/partner of Society. “Coming off last week’s quiet launch, we could not be more excited and the feedback has been tremendous. Locals that have heard their friends talk about Society’s Sunday Brunchhave been blowing up our reservation system to guarantee seatings for upcoming Sundays. Whether you want a more laid back exceptional dining experience earlier in the day, or you’re looking for the ultimate party brunch with your friends or girlfriends, this brunch has something for everyone and you will not be disappointed.”
The brunch menu continues until 6 p.m. Reservations are highly recommended.
