Olde Naples is one of the best places to live and enjoy the Florida vacation lifestyle. 5th Avenue South and 3rd St. S are ideal for art galleries, bars, restaurants and shopping. Now coming in a few months to 5th Ave S is a new bar called Shea's at Landsdowne Street. This sports-themed watering hole will be right next to Hob Nob in the heart of 5th Ave S strip district and feature a combination of crafts beers, appetizers and full dining. It will be an ideal place to stop from the beach or come by from Port Royal or Aqualane Shores for a taste of Boston while in Naples. See the article below for more information.

IN THE KNOW: BOSTON-THEMED PUB COMING TO DOWNTOWN NAPLES
Don’t be surprised to see a big Green Monster on Fifth Avenue South before the year’s over.
The Boston-themed Lansdowne Street Pub
in Bonita Springs is opening a second location in downtown Naples.
The new bar’s name — Shea’s at Lansdowne Street — will be slightly different, but it will sport the same look, atmosphere, menu and other offerings of its original location, which will remain operating in Bernwood Design Centre off U.S. 41 in Bonita.
“We like to call ourselves the neighborhood pub. We are trying to be Fifth Avenue’s neighborhood bar,” said Dan Maurer, who will be the general manager of the Naples business owned by his father, Charlie.
“We are excited about it. We think Fifth Avenue needs something like that down there,” Maurer said, “Somewhere you can cruise in and watch the game, have a cold beer, a glass of wine and eat some good food.”
The Ingram Building housing Shea’s at Lansdowne Street has a Fifth Avenue address — 720 Fifth Ave. S. — which it shares with Hob Nob Kitchen & Bar and other businesses and residences. But entrances to Shea’s actually will be off Fifth in the alleyway — Cambier Park Way — behind the city park’s bandshell, as well as in the walkway that separates the building from next door’s Vergina restaurant on Fifth Avenue.
Construction started last month on the new bar, which will have a design that mirrors the Bonita location with its New England sports memorabilia.
“We are going to try to mimic the Green Monster like we have in Bonita,” Maurer said, using the nickname for the huge left-field wall and scoreboard at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox baseball team.
Lansdowne Street Pub is named after the classic downtown block of clubs and watering holes behind Fenway Park. Dubbed “Red Sox Nation’s southernmost outpost,” the local designation will move farther south with Shea’s, named for owner Charlie Maurer’s daughter.
Like the original, the new bar’s mascot is a moosehead wearing a Red Sox stocking cap with earflaps and tassels. The only difference is that Shea’s is a female moose, lacking the large antlers of the Bonita bar’s logo.
The new neighborhood pub will also be about the same size, 2,300 square feet, as the Bonita bar, but it will have a smaller outdoor patio. The cozy interior will feature brick and rich, dark wood with a half dozen televisions set to show all the Red Sox, Patriots and Celtics games.
The sports bar will feature a variety of microbrews with more than 20 beers on tap. The pub is planning a possible self-serve craft beer island, and expect an impressive wine list, as well.
“We are going to experiment with some higher-end wines,” Maurer said.
The menu of New England favorites will be the same as offered in Bonita, he said.
The pub’s menu includes appetizers, salads and soups such as New England clam chowder, but it is anchored by 20 signature sandwiches and panini named after roads and landmarks in Boston. Each one is served with a kosher pickle and a choice of Cape Cod potato chips, potato salad, coleslaw or Boston baked beans.
The Mass Pike includes ham, turkey, roast beef, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, mayo and spicy deli mustard on a sub roll. The Monstah has hot pastrami, provolone cheese, spicy deli mustard, mayo red onions and pickles on a sub roll.
The Pier 4 sandwich features cold-water lobster salad on a toasted split top bun. The Pregame is actually an Irish breakfast, consisting of two eggs on toast with thick-cut bacon, Irish bangers, baked beans and sliced Roma tomatoes.
The El Tiante panini is named after the Cubano sandwich served inside Fenway Park. It includes capicola, ham, Cuban pork roast, pickles, Swiss cheese and yellow mustard on Cuban bread. The Harvard Avenue panini squeezes in roast beef, red onion, horseradish sauce and smoked Gouda.
