About the restaurant
This is the watering hole for bon vivants with a vision.
The venue offers a cool, relaxing, intoxicating space where you can escape with friends and get lost in a moment. It is comprised of three rooms with distinct personality - A cocktail bar, turning out masterfully executed libations, a terrace, for sun-drenched revelry, and a scintillating great room, hosting near-nightly parties for a sophisticated collection of clientele.

The atmosphere at the WILDER is playful, but elevated, intoxicating, but familiar, tropical, enticing, and a place to, well, get WILD, that feels more like a secluded, storybook escape than a bar or lounge. Guests are at ease, and the staff is polished, friendly, and faultless.

Always like coming here. It’s like a secret getaway, hidden from all of the hustle and bustle of downtown FTL. Love going when there’s live music and it was a perfect evening for dining al fresco! The food never disappoints.
