Embassy House in Downtown Sarasota
A Cosmopolitan Destination
For many decades, Palm Avenue has been Sarasota’s downtown destination for cosmopolitan shopping and high-end professional services. Casual and fine dining, galleries and studios, boutiques, salons, and spas are only a few of Palm Avenue’s delightful offerings. Sarasota was already a popular destination when Palm Avenue emerged in the 1920s to meet the needs and desires of the affluent and the influential. Of course, Palm Avenue is lined with majestic Florida palms. Much has changed since the 1920s, but suggestions of the original grandeur remain all along the acclaimed Avenue.
