Bermuda’s 1609 Bar & Restaurant, a new addition to the offerings of the island’s Fairmont Hamilton Princess hotel, has officially opened for business, with the harbourside establishment now serving lunch, dinner, and cocktails from 11.00am through 10.00pm daily.
The restaurant’s 2,500 square foot open-air space offers every diner a panoramic view of Hamilton Harbour. Maintaining a casual and social atmosphere for dinner, it features a menu that ranges from fresh fish and steak to flatbread pizza, burgers, sandwiches and salads, as well as a variety of seasonally inspired entrees.
A carefully crafted cocktail menu offers Bermuda classics such as the Rum Swizzle and Dark & Stormy, as well as island-inspired favourites that include Sparkling Lemonade, Bermuda Mai Tai, and Tropical White Wine and Berry Red Wine pitchers of sangria.
“We are excited to kick off the spring by opening 1609 Bar & Restaurant for dinner,” said Allan Federer, general manager of the Fairmont Hamilton Princess. “Diners can take in stunning views of the marina and harbour while enjoying a delicious meal and cocktails.
“Likewise, boaters can easily dock for a quick bite following a day on the water. The location of 1609 in town also makes it a great spot for the after-work crowd.”
In helping to kick off the new eatery with a bang, 1609 Bar & Restaurant is offering its Facebook fans a 15 percent discount from now until March 31, 2015. Diners must ‘like’ the restaurant’s Facebook page and then bring a printed confirmation or show the connection on a smartphone or other mobile device to enjoy the discount.
