The Elaborate Literature-Themed Bar Located In The Cayman Islands
Whether you’re a book lover, beverage lover, or beach lover, there’s something for you to enjoy at the literature-themed bar located at Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa. This literature-inspired bar takes a stodgy library and turns it on its head to create a curated experience designed to cater to the most serious bibliophiles, although everyone is sure to enjoy.
Opened in December 2022, the Library by the Sea boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, a bar made of reclaimed wood, and an inventive menu featuring not just drinks but drinkable stories. The drinks draw inspiration from classics like Ian Flemings's 1954 novel, “Live and Let Die,” Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express,” and of course, Hemingway gets a nod.
The cocktail menu itself reads like the classics it emulates, with Short Stories (apéritifs), Page Turners (literary-inspired cocktails), Masterpieces (sharable cocktails), and Rare & First Editions (vintage drinks and limited-edition libations). Once you get your drink, peruse the bar’s digital collection or its shelves of vintage books and magazines while you sip.
