BUILDING on the remarkable reputation of its 2016 and 2017 Jazz Festival events, Tapas On The Bay and Big Chef Steakhouse are all set to stage their 2018 Jazz Celebrations. Beginning May 3rd 2018 and continuing right through to May 13th, patrons can enjoy 10 days of intimate dining and concert experiences.

The Big Chef Steakhouse, located in the heart of Rodney Bay is revered for its perfectly prepared Angus beef, crisp salads, succulent local fish and other seafood, chic and comfortable lounge bar with its killer cocktails, sumptuous desserts and top tier wine list. As customary, the “Boo, Jazz and Big Chef” production held here, will feature Ronald “Boo” Hinkson and some of Saint Lucia’s most exceptional jazz musicians

The sweet sounds of Ronald “Boo” Hinkson accompanied by Semi Francis can be heard on many a Saturday night at BigChef.
