Updates from around the Cayman Islands
Beach Electric Saturdays
The Commodore Waterfront Restaurant & Bar in West Bay is hosting Beach Electric Saturdays until March 23 to raise money for NCVO programs. Live entertainment by local artists, including Riaan Smit of Brothers Remedy, will be held each week in the venue’s new beach beer garden.
A complimentary shuttle is available for guests attending the Saturday night gigs, which kick off at 6 p.m. with a clam bake.
A shuttle service to The Commodore is also available on other nights of the week to and from the Seven Mile Beach area for diners who don’t want to drive.
Uniko Eco Salon, Massimo Crigna’s new sustainable hair salon in the Bay Harbour Centre on West Bay Road, features environmentally friendly elements. These include soft water and water-saving measures, LED lighting, low-energy air conditioning, a living wall of plants and Italian-made products by Davines, known for its carbon-neutral hair-care lines. The salon, which offers plant-based hair colors, also has a program allowing clients to save money and reduce waste with products that can be refilled.
New art classes
Bright Stars, a new initiative at the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands, offers weekly art classes to students with special needs. School groups and students who are home-schooled are invited to participate in these hands-on classes, which are designed to encourage creativity and self-confidence. At the end of the year, the National Gallery will host an exhibition of the students’ artwork.
Eat at Margaritaville
Margaritaville Beach Resort Grand Cayman now has three eating options at the West Bay Road location. The Eating House 1503 pays homage to the year that the islands were first spotted by Christopher Columbus and offers locally sourced fare with Asian-infused culinary techniques from Chef Yamaguchi, who hails from Japan.
Spread Bistro is an artisan deli and Frank & Lola’s serves hand-crafted pizza and gelato in the lobby.
