The Mews, Barbados

 

It’s 6:00 pm and the Concierge team and I arrive at the Mews for a Concierge Party to experience a firsthand taste of their new “Farm to Table” menu. The Mews is a “not so typical” eatery nestled off a side street in the hustle and bustle of the 2nd Street neighbourhood in Holetown, Barbados. We’re super excited, as we love to have a firsthand experience to ensure that our guests are having the very best. Ladies and gentlemen…The Mews did not disappoint.
