Located in the Fred F. French Building, an art deco landmark skyscraper on New York’s Fifth Avenue, the 13,000 SF Tommy Bahama Restaurant, Marlin Bar, and Store are conceived of as an urban resort.
Feature elements in the store include window louvers of salvaged Coney Island boardwalk Ipe wood, campaign style fixturing, and custom lantern pendant lights in the atrium. The bar features reclaimed, weathered oak siding, a custom, bent metal, back lit bar screen, a hand-painted mural and a monumental blackened steel and Ipe spiral staircase with solid brass "rope"-wrapped railing that links the Marlin Bar to the Restaurant above.
Another Tommy Bahama flagship store will follow, located on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile - North Michigan Avenue.
