We have more great news to share with you all today! Joe’s Rum Hut has FINALLY started to rebuild! Woohoo!
So it’s only a few bricks, but it’s progress folks!
For those of you who have been lucky enough to be in or around Wharfside Village and Cruz Bay beach over the past few days, you may have seen workers over in the Rum Hut it. It took sixteen months, but they are finally starting to rebuild the space. And we are so thankful for that!
As you may recall, Joe’s Rum Hut was one of the beachfront businesses that was damaged during Hurricane Irma. There was significant roof damage above and who can forget the boat that slammed up against the popular beachfront spot. We haven’t seen much progress in the area until last week, and what a beautiful sight it was.
Sadly, the Coast Guard had to cut down the trees in front of the Rum Hut in order to remove the vessel that slammed into the business. The upside of that, however, is that the Rum Hut will have an even better view than it did before.
There is no word on when the Rum Hut will actually reopen, but we are confident to say sometime this year.
And for my Beach Bar fans out there, work is continuing in that spot as well. No reopening date has been set as of yet. You know we will let you all know about that as soon as we know!
