Stockholm Arlanda has opened Sweden’s first Bacardi Bar, bringing a touch of 1950s Cuba to the Swedish gateway.
Located in gate area 3 in Terminal 5, the new bar is called 'Casa Bacardi' is land will offer travellers classic drinks in an environment reminiscent of 1950s Cuba.
"We are incredibly excited to open our own bar at the airport," says Petra Caspolin, senior brand manager for Bacardi in Sweden, which has introduced the facility in a joint venture with F&B provider SSP and concessionaire ASDC.
"We've created an old-fashioned and genuine rum bar to suit all types of travellers. Warm, bright colours, and the fragrance of mint will create an exotic sense of the Caribbean."
Bacardi, which in 2012 celebrated its 150th anniversary, is the essential element of a number of world-famous cocktails.
Highlights on the list at the new airport bar are the classic Mojito, Cuba Libre and the Daiquiri. Along with a wide variety of well-known drinks, passengers will also be able to enjoy snacks such as tapas, salads and sandwiches.
ASDC's managing director, Roel Huinink, says: "For many, the excitement of travelling begins at the airport. With the arrival of the world renowned brand Bacardi in Terminal 5, our visitors will now be able to access an even wider range of opportunities to enjoy themselves and have even more reasons to come earlier to the airport.’
