Events taking place on Saturday 27th May

In the shelter of Southampton Water, and right in the heart of the city itself, Ocean Village is much more than a marina. Surrounded by shops, restaurants, cinemas and bars, it offers outstanding recreational facilities.

The basin, formerly used for commercial ships, is deep enough to offer mooring facilities for tall ships and large yachts. It has also become famous for hosting the start or finish of round-the-world yacht races.

The marina is home to some exciting new developments including a £50m luxury spa hotel complex, the tallest residential building in the city, and exciting new restaurant and retail openings.


Saturday 27th May

Southampton Sailing Week kicks off from Ocean Village Marina with lots to see and be involved in on the water. Friday morning, 10am, Banana Wharf will host the World's Biggest Coffee Morning to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Bacaro The house of Bacchus, (Roman god of wine and ecstasy).

Our philosophy echoes that of the Italian Bacari, that the simple pleasures are the most important for our health and wellbeing.

Good wine, delicious food and the company of friends are the recipe for a life well lived. Relax with us and enjoy a few Chicetti (small plates) a glass of wine and take pleasure in the moment, free from worry.

Banana Wharf bar and restaurant is the perfect spot to meet, eat and drink by the water. The exciting menu blends tropical and oriental dishes with great seafood, traditional favourites, pizza, pasta and a fabulous breakfast selection.

In the Banana Bar you will find a variety of drinks to suit any occasion, from a coffee over breakfast, a quick beer after work, through to fine wines to accompany dinner. With stunning views across the marina, Banana Wharf is the perfect spot to meet, eat and drink by the water.

The rather magnificent Maritimo Lounge is no shrinking violet - she's right on the harbour and has pride of place in the tallest building in Southampton. The views are not surprisingly, pretty spectacular, and today looks out on some of the most expensive yachts ever built!

Maritimo Lounge is a wonderful combination of contrasty feels: the ground floor is light and airy, whilst the mezzanine and upstairs area are both rather cosy - the upper floor is the place to go if you want to sit and watch the seascape though!

Tasty fresh food, delicious cocktails, fine wines, premium beers and a great atmosphere is what you'll find at Pitcher & Piano Southampton. Starting the day with one of our breakfast dishes is the best way to do it; a light snack or a big breakfast, we’ve got it covered.

The great views are an ideal spot for lunch with family and friends, whether it’s a light £6 Lunch for Less dish or a hearty burger or main.
