Tommy Bahama Restaurant, Bar & Store at Corona del Mar Plaza unveils its new light and bright remodeled look just in time for summer. The open and welcoming space reveals the brand’s newest design concept developed specifically for Newport Beach and coastal California. Tommy Bahama, an innovator in the combined restaurant and retail experience, has been a mainstay in the Newport Beach community since 1998 and this dramatically redesigned space with its fresh indoor/outdoor feel is the perfect fit for the Orange County lifestyle. The Tommy Bahama Restaurant, Bar & Store remodel is part of the Corona del Mar Plaza renovation, which will be completed later this year.
“We’re excited to debut a new architectural concept that has been completely reimagined for Newport Beach and coastal California,” said Doug Wood, CEO of Tommy Bahama. “We worked to develop just the right look and feel for this new restaurant-retail design. We’ve revitalized the menu and created an open, inviting shopping experience that we know our guests will enjoy. Newport Beach is a community that has always been important to Tommy Bahama, so we are pleased to debut this new concept here.”
RESTAURANT and BAR: Upon approach, guests will immediately notice the striking exterior of Tommy Bahama Restaurant, Bar & Store with a reconfigured patio and glass door façade that folds back to create a fluid indoor/outdoor space. The expansive bar and dining area is accented with blonde wood ceiling beams and panels that are awash in light. Ocean-worthy blue and ecru tile add dimension to the bar and a tiled floor that resembles wood flows through the entire space. The bar has been repositioned as a focal point of the space with seating on all four sides and at adjacent high top tables. On the patio, cozy fire pits with lounge seating are available for casual drinks and light bites. Up a few stairs, a raised terrace offers seating with a view of the surroundings. Plenty of indoor seating is provided, including a private room for meetings or special events.
Serving delicious, native California cuisine, Tommy Bahama Restaurant, Bar & Store provides a relaxed environment to refuel and recharge from shopping. Locally sourced foods include Carlsbad mussels, California pistachios, golden state avocados and farm raised chicken from Orange County. Moving from an all-day dining menu to separate lunch and dinner menus, plus daily fresh sheets provide several dining options offering new selections along with island-inspired favorites from the original menu.
