BASKING RIDGE, NJ - The new Tapas Bar and Lounge at Fellowship Village Senior Living is slated for an early fall 2020 completion. The new bar, lounge, and outdoor patio is part of the multi-phase expansion on the 72-acre campus off of Allen Road in Basking Ridge. 

The Tapas Bar and Lounge will be an extension to the fine dining experience offered at Fellowship and will be available to residents, team members and their guests. The newly renovated lounge and bar has floor to ceiling windows that highlight the soaring ceiling height. The contemporary fixtures bring a metropolitan atmosphere to the lounge experience. The renovated space also houses a billiard room and private dining space. 

The spacious outdoor covered patio will offer alfresco dining with overhead heaters to allow extended usefulness. An outdoor kitchen with seating will be used for cooking demonstrations. Also included in this outdoor transformation is a pavilion, fire pit with built-in seating and a two-way fireplace to be enjoyed from the indoor lounge and outside patio.

From the renderings that are displayed for residents to view, the landscaping will include a putting green for the golf enthusiasts. (See photo gallery.)

The completion of this phase compliments the entire expansion project. The Tapas Bar and Lounge gives residents and their guests additional gathering options to socialize and share a drink -- in addition to their existing dining venues.

In July 2019, Fellowship opened the doors to the Fellowship Cultural Arts Center (CAC), a state-of-the-art theater that presents a variety of professional shows open to the public and is used for internal events serving Fellowship Village residents.  [Unfortunately, COVID-19 has canceled all public shows and events until further notice for the safety of the residents and team.]

In addition to the completion of this multi-year construction project, the healthcare is expanding as well, integrating an innovative household model for a person-centered approach that provides an interpersonal, safe and secure homelike atmosphere, said Brian Lawrence, President and CEO of Fellowship Village Senior Living.
