Bird Key Yacht Club's Social Committee is filled with some of the brightest lights in our membership. The committee’s job is to solicit ideas from members for the wide variety of parties offered each month throughout the year. Parties include farm-to-table community pool side dining; luaus on Lido Beach; impersonators of popular performers such as Frank Sinatra and Elton John; Sarasota's top dance bands; jazz brunches and even the occasional black tie gala. Fresh ideas for events are not only welcome, they are encouraged. Our goal? To bring our membership together under our motto, “anchored in friendship.”
Our members love exploring the world through food and wine presented by our award-winning kitchen. And we continue to create new opportunities to celebrate this culinary passion together at the club. Wine pairings and wine dinners are arranged with our Executive Chef to provide special evenings focused on introducing members to new wines and vintners. Members also enjoy informal wine tastings paired with small plates as part of our Wine Dinner featured menus.
Our members lead exciting lives outside of Bird Key Yacht Club and often they use the club as the location to bring their outside interests bay side.

Or, connect and plan new adventures on the high seas of the Gulf or our intracoastal waterway.
