Tommy Bahama prepares to open Fifth Ave. flagship

New York -- Tommy Bahama Group Inc. said Thursday its first Tommy Bahama global flagship store will open on Nov. 17 at 551 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

The 5,000-sq.-ft. store, coined “Manhattan Island,” is the largest Tommy Bahama retail location worldwide and features an expanded merchandise collection, a 1,300-sq.-ft. Marlin Bar – the only freestanding bar between the Empire State Building and Central Park – and a 6,700-sq.-ft. restaurant on the second floor. The restaurant opening has been delayed to December due to problems caused by Hurricane Sandy.

"It took us a long time to find the right space, but we are confident that this is the perfect location for us -- New York's Fifth Avenue is the epicenter of luxury, style and the heart of Mid-town Manhattan," said Terry Pillow, CEO, Tommy Bahama.

Located in the circa 1927 Fred F. French Building, the Tommy Bahama store was designed by Michael Neumann Architecture.
