Bahama Breeze adds to Cypress Creek mix

Bahama Breeze Island Grille will open a new restaurant at 3 p.m. on Monday (July 16) in Wesley Chapel.

Located across the street from the Tampa Premium Outlets, Bahama Breeze is joining the ever expanding Cypress Creek Town Center.

The new Bahama Breeze, more than 12,100 square feet, will be the first location in the greater Tampa area featuring the company’s latest restaurant design. The new look is rustic and reminiscent of a sugar mill you would see in the islands, inspired by the sugar cane that is made into rum in the Caribbean.

Bahama Breeze serves up more than 70 Caribbean-inspired dishes such as beef empanadas, coconut shrimp, jerk chicken pasta, and seafood paella.

At the bar, guests can enjoy a wide variety of handcrafted tropical cocktails and six beers on tap. During happy hour, there are cocktail specials and half-priced appetizers. Happy hour is held 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 p.m. to close Sunday-Thursday.

Throughout the year, the restaurant will host signature events like Viva la ‘Rita, Reggae Fest, and Rumtoberfest, featuring signature cocktails, island-inspired dishes, live music and more.

Bahama Breeze is located at 25830 Sierra Center Blvd. It will be open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. For more information, call (813) 949-0779 or visit bahamabreeze.com.
