About This Nassau Tour
The landmark Graycliff boasts a long and colorful history. From pirate mansion to navy garrison. From Nassau's first inn to private vacation home. (The first homeowners were a wealthy Canadian couple who later sold the property to royalty). In 1973, Enrico and Anna Maria Garzaroli purchased the Graycliff, reopening its doors to the public. Since that date, they've added a five-star restaurant, cigar company, and chocolatier to the hotel.
You'll want to turn your attention to that last ahhh-menity. Graycliff Chocolatiers handcrafts its craveable confections in dark, milk, and white chocolate, combining them with a variety of fresh and unexpected flavors, which include everything from Bahamian mangoes, limes, sea grapes, and genips to tomato-basil and bacon. Graycliff Chocolatier's collection includes candy bars, filled bonbons, sumptuous truffles, and even cocktail pops.
Speaking of cocktails, it's time to sip spirits and savor chocolates in truly distinctive pairings. On this delicious journey, you'll learn all the secrets. How a premium rum brings out notes of buttery vanilla from a creamy chocolate. Or how an oh-so-smooth whiskey tickles the taste buds when matched with a Bahamian fruit-filled chocolate. This is how real grown-ups do candy. So don't be surprised if you reach for a snifter every time you open a chocolate bar back at home.
Mobbed by big names
The Graycliff has long been a retreat for the famous, possibly none more infamous than Al Capone. The gangster frequented Graycliff in the 1920s when it was owned by Polly Leach, reputedly one of Capone's lady friends. It was at the height of his Prohibition-era bootlegging gig, leading up to the hit he ordered on rival "Bugs" Moran that resulted in the slaughter of seven men (none of them Moran) in the notorious and bloody St. Valentine's Day Massacre of 1929.
