100 MoBay to add value to second city’s tourism product - Azan
100 restaurant and lounge opens in Jamaica's second city.
Popular restaurant and entertainment lounge, 100, which opened in Kingston during September 2015, recently opened a second location in Montego Bay.
The Montego Bay location which opened on August 23 has been described by some businesses in the area as a welcomed addition to the city, which is known for its thriving tourism product.
Chief Executive Officer of Sizzling Slots, (operators of 100), Gassan Azan expects this new venture to further enhance Montego Bay's tourism offering with more dining and entertainment options.
Azan believes that having 100 in Montego Bay will add value to the city’s tourism package and will also increase employment opportunities in Western Jamaica.
“100” opened on a high to much fanfare as specially invited guests were treated to an evening of entertainment accompanied by tasty selections from 100’s menu.
Situated inside the Mega Mart complex in the heart of the city of Montego Bay, 100’s 3,000 square foot space boasts modern industrial styling complete with natural-wood finishes that creates a cool and trendy ambience.
This new restaurant is adorned with an array of big screens covering vast portions of the wall, high tables and wicker-inspired high chairs, which like its Kingston location is expected to be a gathering spot for viewing sporting and entertainment events.
100 Mobay also boasts an impressive Jamaican-fusion menu, which combines local favourites with signature international dishes like 100’s oxtail arancini which some guests sampled on opening night.
Director of Tourism Donovan White, who was in attendance at the opening event, said that 100 was a welcomed addition to the city and further added that the establishment arrived at an opportune time.
“Establishments like 100, will have the great opportunity to tap into the fact that this year the international tourism sector and the entire Caribbean and World Tourism Market will travel to the city for three days. They will then come back for Caribbean Market Place later in the year. I hope that 100 will take the opportunity to ensure that when these global travel industry heavy hitters come - they enjoy what Jamaica has to offer and take back the experience so that even more visitors come to the country,” said White.
