The Gasparilla Inn and Club in Boca Grande is ideal for any special occasion:

Gasparilla Inn Historic District is in the heart of an historic district.  Location is on 500 Palm Avenue in Boca GrandeFloridaUnited States. On March 18, 2008, it was listed in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.[1]

The National Register designation centers largely on the Gasparilla Inn itself.  It is one of the largest surviving resort hotels in Florida.  Originally it was built for wealthy northerners in the early 20th century.[2]

Here are just a few of the highlights the Inn has to offer:

  • Great food by master chefs
  • Service by a highly trained,  considerate and responsive staff.
  • Incredible decor with featured displays.  View: (1) Spectacular seashells. (2) A pictorial history of the Inn. (3) Pictures of big fish catches and fishing expeditions.
  • Of course, the newly rebuilt vintage Steinway.

David is particularly excited about this year. This is because piano technician, Larry Keckler of Sarasota Florida, reconditioned and fine-tuned the dining room Steinway.   He also tuned a second Steinway grand in the “Living Room”. Both date back to the early 1920’s. Steinway parts were flown directly from Germany. Having played at the Inn over Thanksgiving, I personally witnessed how the guests loved its intimate, clean and clear tone.

When dining, be sure you ask me to play entire piano score to Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nacht Musik (A Little Night Music). I have a rare and most enjoyable German-made arrangement.  Guests also love my rendition of Chopin’s Nocturnes. Gustav Holst even gets into the act. I have a unique transcription of his Jupiter from The Planets. Franz Liszt loved transcriptions. So do I.  Enjoy great music in the old tradition in a special setting. I will be there six nights weekly: From December 20, 2017 through April 1, 2018.
