Did you know Ernest Hemingway’s home was in the Florida Keys? His expeditions from “Cayo Hueso” to the coast of Cuba are described in many of his writings. The culture and cuisine from those regions serve as culinary inspiration for the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress’ Hemingway’s Steak & Seafood Restaurant.

Hemingway is home to many local favorites. Indulge in a fine selection of wines, specialty drinks, and desserts. Can we tempt you with a slice of Alaskan style key lime pie? Don’t forget to ask about their signature Papa Doble, one of Hemingway’s own libations. The Captain’s List of fine wines can be found on their site.

2. Hurricanes Lounge

Sip hand-crafted cocktails under the warmth of the Florida sun. Hurricanes Lounge offers stunning views of the sun-kissed swimming pool and lush gardens. We highly recommend ordering one of their tropical blended drinks or world-class wines from the menu. If you’re in the mood for a bite, light appetizers and mouth-watering tapas are available too. Last but not least, for a truly local Orlando experience, make sure to try out the signature drink - the Papa Doble.
