Using only the freshest ingredients, Katsuya crafts dishes with a modern twist and elegance, paired with signature cocktails and an extensive sake list.
Showcasing the dynamic pairing of the master sushi chef and design impresario, Katsuya Baha Mar is centrally located on the casino floor and is sbe's first concept to open at the luxury resort destination.
"We welcome master sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi's and sbe's award-winning modern Japanese restaurant to our extensive roster of global flavors at Baha Mar," said Graeme Davis, president of Baha Mar. "The addition of Katsuya, along with 10 sbe restaurants and lounges, reinforces Baha Mar as a rich culinary destination in the heart of the Caribbean.

Providing the signature elements of Katsuya, the Baha Mar location features Starck's bold, sleek and contemporary design creating a sophisticated yet approachable dining experience. Using natural wood elements throughout the multiple dining areas, Starck incorporates striking and luxurious white and tan leather seating, while backlit Japanese iconography line the walls.
Katsuya's main dining rooms feature high ceilings with warm tan and grey wall accents, while the iconic Dragon Room, best used for private dining and events, uses custom wallpaper resembling dragon scales for a dramatic yet glamorous touch. As his Katsuya design portfolio expands to its 10th location, Starck has seamlessly perfected contrasting traditional Japanese design with modern dining.
