Shooters Waterfront Unveils New Private Event Space for Weddings, Meetings and Events on Intracoastal Waterway

USA, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. September 12, 2018

Shooters Waterfront, one of South Florida's most celebrated establishments since 1982, located along Fort Lauderdale's scenic Intracoastal Waterway, unveils a trio of elegant, private dining spaces. The new, 6,000 sq. ft. private event space is the ideal spot for private events, meetings, weddings, holiday parties and other soirees. The highly-anticipated addition, located upstairs of the iconic waterfront restaurant, is slated to open November 2018, just in time for season.

"Since we remodeled and relaunched Shooters Waterfront in 2014, we've received countless requests for large group events given our unique and picturesque location along the Intracoastal Waterway," said Peter Lopez, Shooters Waterfront director of operations. "The launch of our private dining rooms enables us to better serve our globally-inspired menu to groups up to 175 in a private and intimate setting. In addition, our expansion will further position us as South Florida's premiere venue for waterfront events."

Helmed by contractor Michael Lombardi of Lombardi Construction and interior designer Deborah Frustino of Mountainside Design, the new space features three distinct spaces designed with functional and relaxed elegance in mind and equipped with state-of-the-art audio and visual capabilities.

The largest of the three rooms, dubbed the "Intracoastal Ballroom," serves as the largest space of the three and can be divided into two separate rooms. Most notable are the floor-to-ceiling windows which slide open to offer an unobstructed view of the Intracoastal Waterway. With more than 25 hanging Molten Spider glass light fixtures, the dynamic ballroom is the perfect venue for once-in-a-lifetime events. Adjacent to the Intracoastal Room is a 24-seat conference room called, "The Summit," as well as a 16-seat conference room called, "Papillon."

Cuisine and beverage for the private dining rooms will include chef-inspired menu items from Shooters Waterfront's celebrated culinary team. The new space is slated to open in November 2018, but the team is already taking reservations for holiday parties, weddings and private events.

Human Resources: Confronting a Labor Shortage

With the unemployment rate at its lowest level in decades (3.7%), what has always been a perennial problem for human resource professionals - labor shortage - is now reaching acute levels of concern. It is getting harder to find and recruit qualified applicants. Even finding candidates with the skills to succeed in entry-level positions has become an issue. In addition, employee turnover rates remain extremely high in the hotel industry. As a result of these problems, hotel HR managers are having to rethink their recruitment strategies in order to hire the right talent for the right job. First, hotels have been forced to raise their wages and offer other appealing perks, as a way to attract qualified candidates. Secondly, HR managers are reassessing their interviewing techniques, focusing less on the answers they receive to questions and more on observable behavior. Part of this process includes role-playing during the interview, so that the recruiter can gauge how a candidate works through specific problems and interacts with other team members. Additionally, some HR managers are also creating internal talent pools as a way to address labor shortages. Instead of utilizing department resources to find new hires with specific skills for needed positions, hotels are cultivating talent pools internally and preparing their employees to assume leadership roles whenever the time comes. They are also placing greater emphasis on a company culture that is more performance-based, as a way to curb employee turnover, increase employee satisfaction, and assure higher levels of customer service. Finally, recognizing the importance of employee retention as a way to lessen the impact of a tight labor market, some HR managers are instituting generous reward programs in order to retain their top performers. The March Hotel Business Review will explore what some HR professionals are doing to address these and other issues in their departments.
