The rum is stocked and the grills are ready for firing as Turtle Bay Durham announces its opening date.
The new addition to The Riverwalk development will open to the public on Friday, October 15.
Durham’s first Caribbean restaurant and bar will offer a brand new cocktail menu, Caribbean soul food classics and island beach shack party vibes, every day - from breakfast through to the small hours.

“We open with a whole new collection of tropical cocktails to make the magic of a ‘Caribbean Social’ come to life and an island-inspired all-day menu for every kind of foodie, from vegan to clean-and-lean to Jerk Pit BBQ, fiery curries, breakfasts, burgers and beach themed salads.”
The restaurant is located in a 4850 sq ft two-storey venue at The Riverwalk and Fusion Design and Architecture has created bespoke interiors including a central island bar, open kitchen, flaming jerk-pit and grill, indoor veranda seating plus a Reggae and D’Rum themed rooms.
