Downtown Kingston is the heart beat of the city, best known for its street side sights and sounds as well as vintage architecture. If you are looking for a bite to eat off the street, there is that too, and it is called Swiss Store. Located near the Kingston harbour on the main thoroughfare of Harbour Street, Swiss Store is an oasis from the hustle and bustle outside. Behind closed doors, the contemporary eatery doubles as an exhibition space for local artists and triples as a boutique jewelry store. Like its settings, the menu is fresh and contemporary. And yes, it was always that way, since the first half of the 20th century...
At the time, Swiss Store was a leading jewelry store in the vibrant and bustling business district. Bangerter was then a 24 year-old Swiss citizen replacing the original watchmaker from Switzerland hired as a result of the Rolex encounter. Bangerter is now 83 and still upstairs practicing the watching making trade alongside Jamaican colleagues. However, what was then a jewelry store with a restaurant occupying some of it is now a restaurant with a jewelry store occupying some it.
