Art Gallery
“A wonderful oasis on one of the busiest streets in Nassau. Soak in the atmosphere on their outdoor patio, enjoy the paintings, meet the owner and world renown Antonius Roberts. The huge glass ornaments you see from the airport escalator after you get through US customs, those are his work. Spend an hour and soak it all in. ”
