NASSAU, BAHAMAS—Baha Mar, the $3.5-billion integrated gaming resort opening next spring, has introduced its first four signature restaurants. The resort’s food and beverage selections complement its collection of hotel brands—The Baha Mar Casino & Hotel, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, Grand Hyatt and SLS Lux—as well as a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course and ESPA spa, among other experiences.
Deuce, Katsuya, Brasserie des Arts and Shuang Ba will be among the global cuisine curated through the 40 restaurants, bars and clubs at Baha Mar, and all located in and around the 100,000-sq.-ft. Las Vegas-style Baha Mar Casino.
“The selection of these restaurants as our signature offerings is very simple. They are my favorite from around the world. Baha Mar is about an authentic experience and our restaurants are no exception. Our guests can select from several options for dining from high-end to more casual fare,” said Sarkis Izmirlian, Baha Mar’s chairman and CEO. “Deuce, Katsuya, Brasserie des Arts and Shuang Ba will be centered around the most discerning guests’ needs. Whether delivering to players right at the casino high-limit rooms, or offering private dining rooms within the restaurants themselves, our mission is to ensure superior dining, world-class service and authentic Bahamian charm.”
Deuce takes its name for being only the second location of Bone’s, the Atlanta steakhouse ranked by Zagat Survey as highest in food and service of any steakhouse in America. Deuce will consist of more than 350 seats and will be the largest restaurant at Baha Mar. The restaurant will feature interior designs by Atlanta-based architecture and design firm Johnson Studio.
Katsuya, a contemporary Asian restaurant, has garnered a loyal following for its culinary offerings as well as its architectural designs by French design icon Philippe Starck. The 250-seat restaurant at Baha Mar will be home to Katsuya’s eighth location.
Baha Mar will be home to the fourth location of Brasserie des Arts, the restaurant and lounge which is also found in São Paulo, Brazil and two locations in France—Megeve and Saint Tropez. The 200-seat establishment will offer fine French and also include indoor and outdoor seating and a DJ for late night entertainment.
Representing the figure 88, which signifies “double fortune” in Chinese culture, Shuang Ba is designed to ensure good luck extends from this 88-seat restaurant to the casino floor. With private dining salons draped in shades of rich woods, gold and jade, the central dining salon features a grand liquor case in the shape of a Moon Gate, surrounded by wood elements and pops of red. Large circular dining tables give diners the view of a 30,000-pound hand-carved Chinese stone column.
