Tommy Bahama to move into larger space on Las Olas with ‘relaxed’ bar

Tommy Bahama customers in Fort Lauderdale will be able to sip cocktails and eat light fare next year as they shop for beach- and loungewear at a new Las Olas Boulevard location.

The national retailer of men’s and women’s island-themed apparel and accessories has yet to announce the move scheduled for the fall of 2020 to 740 East Las Olas Blvd.

But commercial real estate broker Charlie Ladd of Barron Leasing Co. on Thursday confirmed the impending move after a large sign appeared in the front door window of a new two-story commercial building erected by The Las Olas Co.

Beside moving its store from 1002 East Las Olas, Tommy Bahama will introduce one of its Marlin Bars at the new location. There are four restaurant locations in Florida and 14 others in Arizona, California, Hawaii, New York and Texas, according to a company website.
