Naples entrepreneur Rebecca Maddox on Wednesday publicly launched Rebecca’s Wine Bar, the first of two eponymous ventures she recently built on Bayshore Drive across from her Celebration Park and Three60 Market.  

The new modern wine bar fronting Bayshore is open to the public with an actual bar, a charcuterie room and a Three60 Wine shop. A companion project, a private members-only social club named The Maddox, will open in October on the shared open-air campus at 2955 Bayshore Drive in East Naples.  

The innovative projects have been about five years in the making. Following a conception phase, Maddox & Partners purchased two vacant commercial lots in early 2019 totaling nearly 1.5 acres and the project broke ground in the summer of 2021 with architectural plans designed by David Corban of Naples. The entrance into the new venue on Bayshore lines up with Becca Avenue, the road at the entrance to Celebration Park and its adjacent parking lot.  

A 40-foot wine bar runs along the eastern edge of Rebecca’s. “I think it’s a pretty interesting bar. I think it’s different. It’s a cool space, a little bit more urban, indoor and outdoor,” Maddox said.  

She tapped Matt Johnson, the brother of Chef Todd Johnson of Nosh at Naples Bay, as her beverage director. “He has done a great job putting the bar together. I’ve known the Johnson boys for a long time. And so, I feel like we have a real superstar at the bar, superstar chef, and we know the wine business works pretty well, so I’m thinking it’s going to be packed.”
