Mariah Carey’s Favorite Table in Nassau

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 25, 2017

Global music superstar Mariah Carey recently paid another visit to Nassau in The Bahamas, stopping for a meal at the country’s signature restaurant: Graycliff.

The pop icon dined in a private dining room with her boyfriend Bryan Tanaka at the legendary Graycliff hotel and restaurant, Caribbean Journal has learned.

Graycliff is home to the third largest private wine collection on earth with more than 300,000 bottles on hand.

Tanaka, posted an Instagram photo from the cellar on the visit.

Graycliff, set in a nearly three-hundred-year-old former pirate’s mansion.

“We’re literally in a wine cellar that has over 250,000 bottles of wine, worth over 24 million dollars,” he wrote. “It’s one of the biggest collections of wine in the world! The best part of this experience was spending it with this beautiful Queen.”

That trip included a trip to the Exumas.

Graycliff has become a major haunt for a number of celebrity clients, from actors like Nicolas Cage to music stars like Jay-Z to athletes like Michael Jordan, among others.

Indeed, music legend Billy Joel is the subject of a favorite story at the hotel.

Carey likes to come to Graycliff whenever she’s in Nassau, sources told Caribbean Journal.

And she seems to be a lover of the Caribbean, most notably spending a high-profile trip last year in Antigua and Barbuda.

Graycliff has a boutique hotel along with several restaurants, a cigar factory and a historic village.
