The past year has certainly been a busy one for the team at Cabana's Beach Bar and Grille on Fort Myers Beach, a part of the luxurious DiamondHead Beach Resort and Spa, 2000 Estero Blvd. To celebrate the completion of extensive renovations, including the addition of a beach seating area for service directly on the sand, Cabana's has teamed with the local distillery Wicked Dolphin Rum to throw a special grand re-opening event, Cirque du Cabana's, Saturday, April 5, starting at 5 p.m., open to the public.

"With the recent renovations and expansion, Cabana's is really unlike any other beach bar in the area," said Kelsey Hastings, marketing coordinator for SunStream Hotels and Resorts. "This has been a very long process, and there is a lot of eager anticipation surrounding the grand re-opening and the Cirque du Cabana's event, which will be extremely unique for Fort Myers Beach."

Along with umbrella-ed beach seating directly in the sand, other renovations to the outdoor bar and grill include remodeling the entire outside area, completely rebuilding the uniquely-shaped granite beach bar, new TVs, and an extended dining patio, with everything being updated and fresh.
