Margaritaville Caribbean - Bar, Dinning and Entertainments
Margaritaville Caribbean is the brainchild of Jamaican Brian Jardim and Ian Dear. With years of experience between them in the hospitality industry and real estate development, the duo has created fun and exciting places that the whole family can enjoy, where both locals and visitors can kick back, relax and have a good time. Cool places on the waterfront where good food and drink flow and the fun never stops. In a word Margaritaville!
In 1994, the duo opened their Hip Strip flagship Margaritaville Montego Bay, quickly followed by Margaritaville's alter-ego, Marguerite's Seafood by the Sea, right next door. This elegant and intimate waters-edge seafood restaurant is today acknowledged as one of the island's finest, offering a premium selection of seafood specialties and the freshest Caribbean lobster.
The following year, Brian and Ian unveiled the second restaurant in the chain, the Ville Negril. At the water's edge along Negril's world-famous beach, the 'Ville Negril is as casual and laidback as the bohemian town itself. Well-known for its wet and wild foam parties, the 'Ville Negril is Jamaica's Spring Break Capital.
In 2000 the duo joined forces with Jimmy Buffett and became the Caribbean franchise holders for Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville. The deal was sealed in 2001 and Jamaica joined the Jimmy Buffett family with the opening of Air Margaritaville at Mo'Bay's Sangster International Airport.
The 4th largest Jamaican Margaritaville, at Island Village in Ocho Rios, debuted in February 2002. Parrotheads flew in and locals flocked to the restaurant to witness Jimmy's electrifying performance in celebration of its opening.
Air Margaritaville 2 opened in 2005 and today there are a total of five assorted airport locations. On New Year's Eve of the same year, Marguerite's debuted a cool, sophisticated after-dinner lounge called Blue Beat Jazz and Martini Bar. The hot spot features nightly live jazz and Montego Bay's best martinis.
2006 proved to be a busy year for Margaritaville Caribbean, with the February opening of Margaritaville Turks & Caicos at the Carnival Grand Turk Cruise Center. Just six months later, their seventh restaurant, Margaritaville Cayman, opened along the waterfront in George Town, Grand Cayman. With waterslide swim up pool bar and 2 stories of fun, Margaritaville Cayman is the biggest and boldest so far!
