Resort raises the bar with customized food and beverage experiences

PUERTO PLATA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC (Feb. 8, 2011) — Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club, located in Puerto Plata on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, has opened its eleventh on property restaurant, Blues, while launching a brand new specialty bar concept encompassing 20 unique bars strategically scattered throughout the resort complex.
Blues features a high-end, Las Vegas style buffet for breakfast and lunch including international dishes from around the world and different specialty items daily on the grill such as blackened fresh grouper, gourmet burgers, and fresh homemade pasta. An organic salad bar is also featured. Blues is located in the Presidential Suites area of Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Resort, adjacent to JAZZ, a French Fusion restaurant which opened last year.
The resort’s new customized bar selection includes a rum bar, champagne bar, vodka, gin, brandy, whiskey, tequila and bourbon bars, and specialty bars such as a liqueur, wine, martini, and on tap beer bar, as well as coffee and drink dessert bars. Each themed bar features a fun name and ambiance with its own specialty drink menu.. For example, Anja’s Lounge, a Brandy Bar, serves an Apple Sidecar, Beach Street Cooler and Summer Slush while Cosmopolitan’s Martini Bar serves Chocolate Martinis, Appletinis and Lemon Drops and The Spot Vodka Bar features a French Kiss, Bay Breeze and Absolut Pleasure.
