The Executive Chef & Maitre D’ teams from the resort’s restaurants – Waterlot Inn, Ocean Club, Newport, Bacci, Jasmine Cocktail Bar & Lounge and Wickets Burger Bar – were present to share the newest information about Fairmont Southampton’s enticing dining offerings, and culinary specials during the sailing races.

Dozens of attendees enjoyed the complimentary drinks and nibbles, and Bermuda’s newest pop-up experience, The Rum Cellar, was the ultimate talk of the evening.

A collaboration with Bermuda’s family-owned and richly celebrated Gosling’s Rum, the intoxicating late-night excursion bursts tropical plants and bright island colours. This new place-to-be will be open throughout the racing period from 9pm – 2am nightly at Fairmont Southampton [in the former Wine Cellar space next to Willow Stream Spa], until end of June.
