The R Hotel is to launch District 5, with Brian Lumley serving as head chef.

“We left no stone unturned when conceptualising and executing the plans for District 5. We have paired one of Jamaica’s best and most innovative chefs, Brain Lumley, with a great location, overlooking New Kingston, and excellent customer service,” said R Hotel General Manager Alexander Pike.

Some of the features prospective District 5 diners can look forward to include spacious open-air dining, fun and interactive themed nights, and a mix of the Caribbean and global cuisine. Even better, you do not have to be a guest of the hotel to enjoy all it has to offer.

“We wanted to bring elements of Jamaica’s vibrant culture and music to the restaurant. As a lover of Jamaican food and entertainment, I wanted to create a superior service experience that would perfectly blend all those factors together, while adding value to Brand Jamaica and the country’s tourism industry,” said Joe Bogdanovich, co-owner of the R Hotel.

(Editor's Note: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that the Redbones Blues Café has been rebranded as District 5. District 5 is a new restaurant to be launched by the R Hotel. We regret the error.)
