Jimmy Buffett’s latest Margaritaville restaurant will open at Destiny USA in Syracuse, New York this Monday (Feb 2nd).
The chain’s iconic 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar is there, along with a giant margarita blender. Nearby is the Margaritaville store.
The venue’s live performance stage is behind the store, complete with an “Oswego Harbor” lighthouse.
The main dining area extends past the stage to the venue’s other watering hole: the Tiki Bar, perched on the edge of Destiny’s canyon.
Margaritaville’s grand opening event starts at 9:15 a.m. Monday. A ribbon cutting will take place at around 10:15 a.m.
The venue opens immediately after the event. It will feature the chain’s signature margaritas and coastal-style food.

Jimmy Buffett is taking Margaritaville to the high seas. At the Norwegian Cruise Line’s annual company meeting on Thursday, Jimmy made a surprise appearance as the CEO announced the deal.
Margaritaville will be a complimentary restaurant on the Norwegian Escape, which will debut in Europe next October and begin week-long Caribbean cruises out of Miami starting Nov. 14. The 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar will be an outdoor bar on the ship’s Waterfront zone and will feature live music nightly.
Margaritaville eventually will be expanded to the rest of the fleet, but details haven’t been set yet, said Vanessa Lane Picariello, Norwegian’s director of public relations.
“I always wanted a navy,” Buffett said. “If you see me out on my little 26-foot sailboat, please do not run over me.”
The Miami Herald also revealed that a Margaritaville will open at the cruise line’s port in Belize while a 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar will be built in The Bahamas.

The first trailer for next summer’s ‘Jurassic World’ premiered today, and if you’ve got an eye for detail you’ll notice a certain restaurant in the background as a mob of people run for their lives from a hybrid dinosaur.
Watch the trailer below to see Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville around the 2:10 mark:
Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. This new park is owned by the Masrani Corporation. Owen (Chris Pratt), a member of Jurassic World’s on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on the Velociraptors, but things go awry when the research team accidentally unleashes a genetically-modified hybrid dinosaur into the park.

Another Jimmy Buffett property is set to close by the end of the year. According to the Phoenix Business Journal, the Margaritaville at the Westgate Entertainment District in Glendale, Arizona will close its doors in December.
“We anticipated and have been planning for the closure of Margaritaville,” Jeff Teetsel, development manager for Westgate, said in an email. “As we’ve successfully implemented elsewhere in the center, we will repurpose the space with tenants that are in line with current market and entertainment trends as the exciting evolution of Westgate Entertainment District continues.”
When Teetsel was asked to expand on why Margaritaville was was leaving or what is lined up to move into its space he replied, “As a matter of policy, we don’t discuss the details of our tenant relationships.”
Officials with Margaritaville did not return phone calls seeking comment.
The Margaritaville Glendale restaurant was completed in 2008 and included a concert by Buffett to celebrate the grand opening.
The Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi, MS closed in September and the Jimmy Buffett’s at the Beachcomber in Hawaii closed and then recently re-opened under new operators. Despite the recent closings, new Margaritaville locations are in development in Syracuse, NY and San Antonio, TX.
