Molly Malone’s Irish Pub and Bateman’s Big Easy Daiquiri Bar and Restaurant Café are two new restaurants opening in Port Lucaya

Freeport, Grand Bahama - The magic is returning at the Port Lucaya Marketplace (PLM) as several new restaurants and retail businesses are scheduled to open in a few months.

Owners, directors and management of Bourbon Street Limited (Port Lucaya Marketplace) are pleased to announce that with the anticipated opening of four new restaurants, the Marketplace will turn your dining experience into a cornucopia of delectable delicacies.

The Marketplace eagerly awaits the opening of Molly Malone’s, an Irish inspired restaurant that has proprietor Yvonne Morris drawing on her Irish roots. This native of Belfast Northern Ireland and resident of the Bahamas, along with her Bahamian husband James Morris, promise that Molly Malone’s Irish Pub will be serving traditional Irish dishes and beverages.

Patrons wanting to take home a memento of Molly Malone’s will be able to choose from their wide selection of T-shirts, sweatshirts and coffee mugs as well as other logo items. Molly Malone’s Irish pub’s atmosphere sells itself as a lively place for Irish music, great food, moderately priced, cold beverages and engaging conversation. Yvonne is well known to our repeat visitors to Grand Bahama and residents, having spent many years as the Manager of the former Shenanigans restaurant. 

Our second new eatery and entertainment attraction is Bateman’s Big Easy Daiquiri Bar and Restaurant Café which will transform patrons to New Orleans as the Mardi Gras concept will echo from the brilliantly designed mural on the outside wall to the enchanting atmosphere, coupled with the green, purple and gold colours of the interior, will engulf your senses.

Bateman’s Big Easy Daiquiri Bar and Restaurant Café will offer a unique blend of fresh fruits daiquiris and smoothies, especially Bahamian sour sop, guinep, sapodilla, mango, banana and tamarind, sure to delight the taste buds of any pallet.  If persons are familiar with the “Wet Willies” or “Fat Tuesday’s” concepts of daiquiri bars they will also love the Blues, Cajun and Jazz music and enjoy the lively party atmosphere to be created by Bateman and his team.

According to proprietor Bateman Smith, he says the motto of the restaurant will be “Yes is the answer”, as they strive for exemplary customer satisfaction. Bateman’s Big Easy Daiquiri Bar and Restaurant Café is a must for daiquiri, seafood lovers and those desirous of experiencing the creole/Cajun flavour of New Orleans. Regular bar beverages will also be available. The former Shenanigans space will be split to accommodate Molly Malone’s and Bateman’s Big Easy Daiquiri Bar and Restaurant Café.

A new Caribbean/Bahamian restaurant tenant has been secured; a feature story will also be released just as soon as the details of the character of the proposed restaurant are finalized. This new Caribbean/Bahamian Restaurant replaces Caribbean Café.

Finally lending to the eclectic mix of restaurants at the Marketplace, restaurant chain Pizza Hut is also scheduled to open its doors soon. Like its counterpart on the Mall, this second Pizza Hut location will be family oriented, and is on the waterfront. Pizza Hut will entice patrons with their new contemporary design and wider selection of Italian menu that is sure to have something to please every family member. Residents and visitors will love the décor, great food at affordable prices and phenomenal service at Pizza Hut. Pizza Hut replaces Pussers Pub.

“We encourage you to pull up a chair and bon appetite, Port Lucaya Marketplace, where we have it all!” says Karen Ferguson-Bain, PLM’s Entertainment and Marketing Coordinator.

Coming soon will be a new fashion boutique. The new owners are tweaking their retailing concept and a release will be provided just as soon as they are comfortable with their new design tags.
