VIP Launch of "Sunset Sundays" at Il Bacio Restaurant & Lounge brings the Jamaican vibe to Delray's Atlantic Avenue

Anyone who couldn’t escape to Jamaica for a beach vacation this summer found what they were missing during the launch of Sunset Sundays at the ultra-chic Il Bacio Restaurant and Lounge in Delray Beach. The VIP launch party and exclusive Beach Bunny Swimwear fashion show, coordinated by extraordinary event specialists The Gab Group, offered guests a taste of what is to come every Sunday at Il Bacio – live reggae and island music by “The Reggae Boys” and an overall super chill tropical dining atmosphere guaranteed to unwind. 

At the Sunset Sundays launch party on July 26, guests walked through the palm tree-lined entrance into Il Bacio’s massive exterior courtyard and were transported to a tropical island getaway. Rastafarian stiltwalkers towered over delighted visitors as the relaxing beats of live island music by The Reggae Boys washed over the crowd.
Partygoers sipped refreshing complimentary Appleton Rum and Ketel One cocktails, and enjoyed grilled hors d’oeuvres courtesy of Il Bacio, served by the appropriately bikini-clad Il Bacio Girls.

The night heated up with a hypnotic swimsuit fashion show featuring Beach Bunny Swimwear, a fashion forward L.A.-based swimwear line. Bronzed runway models with perfectly tousled, beachy waves expertly styled by Bond Street Salon worked the catwalk in fun, funky beachwear inspired looks in nautical themes as well as the vibrant sunset hues of the tropics. Strutting their stuff to a pulsing playlist of today’s highest-energy beats, models tossed oversized beach balls into the audience, inviting them to join the fun.

The remainder of the evening was packed with sizzling entertainment, from comedian Guy Richards to a Jamaican cruise giveaway finale and exotic fire performers that danced and blazed in the night. To immerse themselves even more into the island vibe, guests could enjoy their cocktails from a freshly cut coconut shell, or puff a hand-cut Cuban cigar.

Proceeds from the night benefited The Connie J. Goodale Breast Cancer Foundation, the only 501 c3 organization in South Florida that provides direct financial assistance to help local women with breast cancer cover the costs of medical bills associated with the disease.
