Tommy Bahama expanding new restaurant concept
Tommy Bahama is rolling out a new retail-restaurant combination that puts a more casual spin on dining.
The retailer has opened a store with an adjacent restaurant/bar at Dania Pointe, Dania Beach, Fla. The store features the brand’s men’s and women’s apparel, swimwear, accessories and home décor collections, while the restaurant, called Tommy Bahama Marlin Bar, is designed as a casual-hybrid restaurant with a full-service bar. Guests place their order at the bar, with the items delivered to their table. Each Marlin Bar location has an open floor plan with plenty of patio seating.
Tommy Bahama opened a second location in Greater Fort Lauderdale on Las Olas Blvd. in February. . Additional locations scheduled to open throughout the year include Las Vegas and San Diego.
“Over the last 20 years, we have seen how our guests enjoy the Tommy Bahama retail concept when it is combined with a restaurant,” said Doug Wood, CEO, Tommy Bahama. “We developed the Marlin Bar concept to create a more casual way for our guests to enjoy the Tommy Bahama shopping and dining experience.”
Tommy Bahama currently has more than 160 stores, and 18 of them include a food and beverage component.
