Beach Weekend brand will include event venue in downtown Fort Walton


FORT WALTON BEACH — Before next summer, local businessman Jayme Nabors plans to unveil “Beach Weekend,” a cumulative brand that will consist of a wedding/event venue on Brooks Street downtown, a major marina nearby on U.S. Highway 98 and several new short-term rental homes on Okaloosa Island.

On Friday, Nabors discussed those plans while standing on the almost 1-acre property at 109 Brooks St. that will be home to the elevated, 5,500-square-foot Beach Weekend Venue building.

He said that structure will include a full commercial kitchen and a large patio overlooking the Santa Rosa Sound and docks. The outdoor area will include a fire pit, parking area and an expansive lawn, as well as a path connecting to Fort Walton Landing.
