Beach Bar Opens New Bar – The Bowery


Now this is exciting!

So last week, we mentioned how The Beach Bar was closing for a few days to do some renovations. Well what we didn’t tell you was that The Beach Bar was preparing to open a brand new bar. We checked it out minutes ago and it is absolutely amazing!

The Bowery will serve up its first drink this evening at 7 p.m., so if you’re on island, be sure to check it out. It has an old school English pub kinda vibe but with a classic twist and a bit of an homage to classic rock. The Bowery is located right behind The Beach Bar in the space that used to house the Water Base clothing store.

The space has been remodeled top to bottom and again, looks absolutely incredible! And it gets better … it’s air conditioned! Woot woot! Check out some pics… We know you’re all going to love it! This is definitely going to be my new favorite spot to hang out and chill (in the air conditioning!) in Cruz Bay!

(We apologize for the grainy quality of the photos – the iPhone 6 did not hold its own tonight.)





Soon there will be a large leather sofa in this space.

What do you all think??!!!

The Bowery will be open seven days a week from about 4-ish on. It will serve the same menu as The Beach Bar for the time being, but it will soon launch its own menu. We’ll keep you posted on that.

Villa Spotlight: Seaside Vista – The Names Says It All

How does an oceanfront villa within walking distance to town sound? Pretty sweet, right??? Today we’d like to tell you all about a little gem we recently discovered – Seaside Vista.

Seaside Vista is the closest oceanfront villa in town. Seaside Vista is a two bedroom home complete with high quality finishes and all new furnishings. Imagine being able to take a dip in the ocean anytime you like, only steps away from your own beach house … well you can at Seaside Vista. Frank Bay is literally right across the street.

Seaside Vista received a total renovation last fall making it a real vintage Caribbean cottage with modern touches done in a way to preserve the unique relaxing cottage feel, yet with an element of understated luxury. Because it’s just around the corner from Gallows Point, it hides any noise from town, yet it’s still an easy five-minute stroll to the heart of Cruz Bay.

You’ll enjoy the soothing sounds of the surf as you watch the sailboats go by. In the evening, enjoy fabulous sunsets year round as the lights twinkle on St. Thomas. The spacious master air conditioned bedroom has a king size bed with direct access to the large ocean view terrace. The bedroom’s windows on three sides provide cooling Caribbean breezes and an ocean view.

Seaside Vista is perfect for a couple as you can rent the cottage with the 2nd bedroom locked, and the rate is priced accordingly. (The 2nd bedroom is never rented to a different party.) The second air conditioned bedroom was thoughtfully designed in a nautical style with a built in queen bed and a twin bunk overhead – just like a ship’s bunk.

The large, newly tiled terrace has plenty of room for relaxing and dining and features all new furniture. The kitchen has been totally remodeled and features new counters, appliances and a more contemporary open floor plan to the living room. A new counter with bar stools makes it a great place to hang. The living room has large ocean view windows with a comfy sectional couch and a doorway that opens up directly to the terrace. There is also a furnished private courtyard with a grill.

An Update on The Tap Room


We stopped by The Tap Room the other day, and I have to say, I was quite impressed with the new space – so much so that I wanted to share the details with all of you.

For those of you who follow News of St. John, you probably recall how a fire destroyed The Tap Room last January. (Click here to read all about it.) The boys opened a temporary space adjacent to the old Tap Room back in March and they’ve been working on rebuilding the old Tap Room ever since.

Here’s some great news: The new Tap Room will be more than three times the size of the old one. How exciting is that??!! The new Tap Room will be in the same spot as the original, but the boys are also taking over the space formerly occupied by The Beauty Lounge.

The new and improved Tap Room is expected to open in early or mid 2016. The new space will have a much larger u-shaped bar and tons of seating. There will also be more space for live music. The new Tap Room will have more dinner and entree choices too – delish!

Check out a video Kevin made last week:

In other St. John Brewers news…

The boys have just launched their first canned beer. Summer Ale is now being offered in both cans and bottles, so those of you who want to bring a St. John Brewers’ brew to the beach or on a boat where bottles aren’t allowed, you can now do so. For now, the cans are only being sold within the territory. So if you’re living up North and want to try one, you’re going to have to come and see us. Sounds pretty good to me!
