May 4, 2023

SARASOTA, FL – CASTO Southeast announced today that Tommy Bahama, a pioneer of the combined restaurant-retail experience, will open a new Tommy Bahama Marlin Bar at the newly developed Center Point at Waterside located in Lakewood Ranch. A restaurant and bar alongside a retail store, the Tommy Bahama Marlin Bar embraces the brand’s easy, relaxed spirit with a casual new concept where guests can eat, drink and shop. The Sarasota location is planned to open in the 2nd quarter of 2024 and will be the seventh Marlin Bar in Florida. Other locations include Winter Park, Coconut Point, Jacksonville, Palm Beach Gardens, Dania Pointe and Ft. Lauderdale.

For 30 years, Tommy Bahama has brought the resort lifestyle to its guests through a wide range of products, combined with extraordinary hospitality in its retail stores, bars and restaurants. The company owns and operates more than 160 Tommy Bahama retail locations worldwide, 21 of which offer a Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar or a Tommy Bahama Marlin Bar.

“We are thrilled that Tommy Bahama has chosen to open this location in Sarasota, Florida, at the new Center Point in Lakewood Ranch,” said Brett Hutchens, president of CASTO Southeast. “We believe that the Marlin Bar concept is a perfect fit for the Sarasota lifestyle and will be an exciting anchor, adding to what will be an exclusive collection of influential new concepts and brands at Center Point.”

“Florida is a big part of our heritage and the essence of Tommy Bahama. We’re excited to expand our Marlin Bar concept here,” said Doug Wood, CEO of Tommy Bahama. “Over the last 30 years, we have seen how our guests enjoy shopping at Tommy Bahama  when it is combined with a restaurant. It’s one of the ways Tommy Bahama is different from other lifestyle brands. We developed the Marlin Bar concept to create a more casual way for our guests to enjoy the Tommy Bahama shopping and dining experience.” 

The Tommy Bahama Marlin Bar features a retail store showcasing the Tommy Bahama men’s and women’s sportswear, swimwear, accessories and home décor collections, alongside a casual-hybrid restaurant and full-service bar for a quick light bite or a place to linger over drinks with friends. A new style of service has guests place their order at the bar and then the food and cocktails are delivered to their table. Each location has an open floor plan with plenty of patio seating, the perfect backdrop for enjoying delicious food and drinks.
