Opening on July 20th, Marigot Bay Bar & Café is the brain child of Dave Marsland of Drinks Enthusiast and is the culmination of several years of inspiration and experiences in the Caribbean, specifically the tranquil, relaxing destination of Marigot Bay in St Lucia.
The Bay is famous for its calming waters and palm tree lined beaches that offer a quiet escape from the hustle of city life. It’s this that Dave looks to re-create, with low ambient and traditional Caribbean radio, a focus on traditional drink serves and attentive table service.
Marigot Bay Bar & Café focuses on Caribbean origins, including a selection of beers such as Banks of Barbados and Carib of Trinidad and Tobago. There will be coffee sourced from the famous Blue Mountain region of Jamaica and a selection of rum and rhums from across the Caribbean islands, including Chairman’s Reserve of St Lucia, Foursquare of Barbados, Appleton Estate of Jamaica, Havana Club of Cuba and Rhum Clément of Martinique.
There’s also a focus on the traditional rum serves found on the islands themselves, including the Pusser’s Painkiller, known as the “Official Cocktail of the British Virgin Islands”, Havana Club’s original Cuban Mojito and Gosling’s Black Seal, the tempest in Bermuda's favourite cocktail the Dark 'n Stormy.
The menu is coupled with a selection of non-rum favourites that can be found on the bars across the Caribbean too, as well as mixers such as fresh coconut water and Ting, the sparkling Jamaican grapefruit juice.
Marigot Bay Bar & Café has a capacity of 30 seating and will be open Wednesday-Friday from 5pm to late and from 12noon to late on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
