Mos'Art Theatre, strives to fortify Palm Beach's cultural scene with "film, art, music, and hope," bolstering a sense of community and inspiring creative expression. Before even entering the theater, audiences pass paintings from local artists and the Art Bar, where they can sip a preshow beer or wine. In the intimate, 150-seat auditorium, the silver screen lights up with indie and foreign films, dazzling eyes and ears with stories that spotlight the human condition and let patrons cry in public without fear of banishment. The management duo, J.R. and Erin Coley, rounds out the commitment to elevating artistic discourse with live children's theater, creative classes, and an ongoing series tracking opera and ballet in the movies.
The Waters of the World pools are almost like aqueous islands, scattered among the grounds' lush grasses and palm trees. Two of the world's oldest and most coveted natural remedies infuse the waters: Dead Sea salt from Israel, which is used to detoxify the skin and quiet the mind, and Salies-de-Béarn salt from the Pyrenees Mountains, which can help with mood swings and water retention. The pools are the centerpiece of The Spa at PGA National Resort's internationally inspired treatment menu, which reads like a history of old-world spa therapies.
The massage and body treatments draw from nearly every corner of the Earth. Reflexology uses Chinese techniques that date back 3,000 years, aromatherapy massages hydrate skin with essential oils from Egypt, and a mud treatment detoxifies the body with Moor mud from Lake Hévíz in Hungary. Like a robot chef that only uses organic foods, facials use natural ingredients in tandem with modern technologies; for example, tightening NuFace microcurrents can be added to a Sea Water Pearl facial with red seaweed.
The spa, which recently benefited from the resort's four-year, $100 million renovation, also has a salon where stylists perform haircuts, glazing, and keratin treatments. Plus, it staffs a plastic surgeon who administers cosmetic injections, and it has an additional selection of men's services, including facials for golfers experiencing red skin as a result of the sun's hot rays or embarrassment over not executing a perfect pirouette after a drive.
No matter what day of the week it is, chances are, there's something going on at The Crazy Horse Saloon. Friday and Saturday nights greet revelers with the sounds of live bands playing rock, blues, or country music, or singing their favorite whale songs. Thursdays better brain cells with trivia questions, and Sundays entertain with bingo games. Crazy Horse's kitchen fuels patrons with a variety of pub foods, from sauce-slathered wings and ribs to big burgers and baskets of spicy fried shrimp. It is also a smoking-friendly establishment.
