No wonder Aruba is such a happy island. Day or night, there is no shortage of things to do while in Aruba. So many travelers who return to Aruba again and again have a list of favorite things about Aruba, be it a pool to languish by, a beach for savoring a sunset or a certain shop. And, yet, it’s always fun to discover something new. If you haven’t yet had a night out at Fusion, make a note. Since opening last season, this one-of-a-kind establishment has – in less than a year – become a go-to place for those on their Aruba vacation as well as locals out for a nice evening.
The full name is Fusion Wine & Piano Bar and it is situated in the newly revamped Alhambra Plaza. And, to borrow from the vernacular of the day, it is what it is: that is to say, a fusion, in just about every way. It is restaurant and lounge, dinner and tapas, cocktails and wine, live music and cigar bar. It’s also a mix of inside and outside, with a bright lights/big city circular bar plus table seating inside and a cozy living room-like arrangement out under the stars where you can sink into comfy couches and let the music gently waft over the summer breeze.
Fusion is a place for doing your own thing. Got a favorite wine? The wine selection is the most extensive on the island and continues to expand. Fusion also has Aruba’s most extensive cigar collection. Live entertainment is offered six nights a week, and has variety, too, ranging from jazz, pop, soul and a little R&B. Sunday night, Angelo Koolman (Love the name.) sings and plays guitar, Monday night Angelo Kock tickles the ivories and Tuesday, Mister Martens plays sax.

On the Facebook page, you will also find comments and reviews, like this one from Liliana Erasmus, writing for 10Best.com, “It’s here at Fusion, where laidback evenings are filled with the indulgence of the senses and where signature cocktails, a generous selection of global wines and premium cigars are complemented by French Executive chef Gerard Coste’s reinvented menu.”
EJ Schanfarber, CEO of Divi Resorts, says that Fusion is a nice place to relax at the end of the day. “It is a new concept for the island, and we’re so pleased that it has struck the right chord with our guests and locals alike.”
See you there!
