Following the launch of Azamara Onward this spring, Azamara – is excited to bring a taste of the ship’s exclusive Atlas Bar to the rest of the Azamara fleet. Beginning August 2022, guests aboard any Azamara voyage can enjoy the “Atlas Bar Experience,” offering some of the specialty venue’s most popular destination-inspired libations in The Den.
Atlas Bar debuted this spring as an exclusive addition to Azamara’s latest ship, Azamara Onward. The specialty venue brings a unique concept onboard, offering innovative artisanal cocktails inspired by a variety of unique destinations visited by Azamara ships. Fresh squeezed juices and handmade syrups elevate the flavors of the curated list of cocktails, which can be paired with an exotic premium menu of small plates served hot and cold, including beef tartare topped with caviar and shaved truffle, smoked lobster crudo, and more.
“The response from our guests about Atlas Bar has been even more positive than we had anticipated. The designer created a beautiful space that really complements the cocktail and food menus that our food and beverage team worked so hard to perfect. I couldn’t be more proud of the team’s work here, and we wanted to be able to offer the experience on our other ships, even if we didn’t have the same physical space,” said Scott Daniels, AVP of Hotel Operations for Azamara.
