The Buddha-Bar restaurant group known across the world for its Asian-inspired gastronomy, hospitality, wellness, music and mixology will open a lifestyle and dining concept within the Porto Montenegro marina’s five-star yacht club.
Just in time for the upcoming summer season, Buddha-Bar Beach Porto Montenegro will combine the very best in hospitality, music, design, and entertainment featuring live music, creative cocktails and lively ambience.
The pool club, an area transformed in the early years of marina development from a derelict syncrolift last used to lift submarines, into venue people would want to visit, was initially operated by Purobeach.
Now Buddha-Bar Beach plans to cater to a fun and festive summer crowd looking for a hedonic experience under the sun and by the water.
Montenegro is now the latest home for this famous luxury beach/poolside concept, with other locations in Venice, Crete and Mykonos.
Through this endeavour, Buddha-Bar Beach will become an integral part of Porto Montenegro, and the country’s flagship lifestyle destination.
Throughout the summer, the venue will, organise a packed social calendar of events for guests to enjoy. Visitors will experience the unique ‘Buddha-Bar Beach Spirit’ thanks to live music and eclectic DJ sets.
Guests of Buddha-Bar Beach Porto Montenegro can expect a refined experience set against the stunning background of the yacht club’s 64-metre pool infinity pool. The new dining experience will be located within a brand new restaurant and feature a shisha-lounge with a panoramic view of the Bay of Kotor.
A refreshing menu of mixed flavours and influences will be inspired by Montenegro’s traditional seafood cuisine and will focus on natural, organic ingredients and locally-sourced produce to support farmers within the community.
Buddha-Bar Beach Porto Montenegro will employ more than 70 people from the region.
The Buddha-Bar restaurant concept was founded by Tarja and Raymond Visan in 1995, who dreamed of a place that creatively combines phenomenal music, superb Asian gastronomy, unique cocktails, a relaxing ambience, and an extremely dedicated team of professionals.
In recent years, Porto Montenegro has transformed from a summer-time destination to a year-round business and entertainment hub, as many residents make it their permanent base.
The arrival of international brands such as Buddha-Bar Beach adds an extra dimension to its appeal and the overall popularity of Montenegro as a thriving new hotspot for discerning international travellers.
