On April 4th, The Hamilton Princess kicked off the season with a festive party to celebrate the reopening of 1609 Bar & Restaurant. 9000 man- hours in the making, the beautiful waterside restaurant has kept their unique open-air element but has added covered areas, which offers guests more protection from the elements and creates a terrific event space all year round.

Guests of the restaurant can enjoy Bermudian classics as well as 1609 staples, such as Fish Tacos and Golden Fried Shrimp. 1609 has also added new dishes to the menu including the Impossible™ Seekh Kebab, a new option for vegetarians and vegans. For drinks this season, there are classic cocktails like the Dark & Stormy, and new favorites like the Hamilton Princess Frosé.

The General Manager at Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, Tim Morrison, commented: “We are delighted to open 1609 Bar & Restaurant for the 2019 season and to showcase its recent revamp which means that it is now an event space for all seasons. Offering unparalleled views over Hamilton Harbour and world-class, delicious food with a local focus, we look forward to welcoming the public to dine al-fresco in style.”

1609 is open seven days a week from 11am until 10pm, and serves lunch, dinner and drinks. You can make a reservation by calling (441) 298-2028 or emailing ham.diningreservations@fairmont.com.
