WESTERN BUREAU:

With a capacity to accommodate 650 persons, Montego Bay's newest attraction, Facebaar, opened with fanfare of lights, camera, steel pan, and acrobatic action last Friday night (July 3).

The entertainment complex, which started hosting patrons as far back as September 2014, houses a first-world, state-of-the-art nightclub, VIP lounge and two restaurants that serve up international faire.

The latter of the two restaurants, which will open in a few months, will offer Japanese cuisine.

Owned and operated by Hispanic Ho-Chi-Min Castillo and Jamaican Garth Ramsay, Facebaar, which is located at the Golden Triangle in Rose Hall, has been welcomed by Mayor of Montego Bay, Councillor Glendon Harris.

The mayor, who was among the dignitaries who participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony, officially opening the complex, said these were the types of investments the Second City needed to sustain its development.

"Montego Bay is in need of entertainment facilities that offer diversity and this is what Facebaar is offering," he told guests.

He was assisted by pastor of the Calvary Baptist Church, Reverend Everton Jackson, Summerfest Production's chairman, Robert Russell and Alice Castillo.

Facebaar will offer themed events, including Karaoke Wednesdays, Reggae night on Thursdays, electronic EDM Fridays and International/Latin on Saturday nights.

Here are the highlights.
