Boatyard Launches 'Boats & Bubbles' Weekly Ladies Night Series With Free Champagne Cruises
Since Boatyard first opened this past fall, it has become a prime coastal dining destination with an upscale casual reputation. Now, the dock-and-dine restaurant is aiming to boost its standing in the yachting community by launching a new "Boats & Bubbles" Ladies Night series.
The weekly event, which kicks off Jan. 28 and will take place every Thursday, lets ladies drink free from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the indoor and outdoor bars as well as the outdoor fire pit. Plus, female patrons can take a ride aboard a Van Dutch yacht for a complimentary champagne cruise along the Intracoastal.
“The concept for Boatyard’s new Ladies Night was really a no-brainer given our prime waterfront location and partnership with VanDutch,” Tim Petrillo, president and co-founder of The Restaurant People, said in a press release.
The Van Dutch cruises are limited to women only, with reservations made on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be three departures each Thursday night—at 7:15 p.m., 8:15 p.m., and 9:15 p.m.—for 10 ladies per ride.
Boatyard is encouraging ladies to arrive early for happy hour (half-off beer, wine and cocktails from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.) or dinner in order to reserve a spot aboard the yacht.
Free drinks for women during the Ladies Night promotion include Grey Goose cocktails, M&R Prosecco, house wine and domestic beer. Men are, of course, welcome to join the ladies at the bar.
"[W]e hope Boats & Bubbles will be the next big ‘scene to be seen’ in Fort Lauderdale," Petrillo said.
