Lots Happening at Joe’s Rum Hut!

New Rum Hut Bar July 2019 The view from the new Rum Hut

Hello everyone and happy Monday! We have great news to share with you all today!

For those of you who have been lucky enough to be on island lately, you’ve likely noticed lots of work happening over at Joe’s Rum Hut. Well today, we are happy to spread the news that one of your favorite Caribbean beach bars is getting closer to reopening. And even better, the place looks great!

Now I do not know an exact reopening date, but I can say with 99.99 percent confidence that it will be this year. I truly believe it will reopen within the next 90 days or sooner, but that’s just my opinion. Fingers crossed!

Walking past the Rum Hut, you will see that there are two new poured concrete bars, which means that if we get another storm, those bars are staying put. You can also see that new bathrooms have been installed inside the back bar area, which is such fantastic news. No more stinky parking lot bathrooms at Wharfside… yahoo! There is also some beautiful stonework happening on site too. All in all, the Rum Hut is starting to look great. We are so happy about that! Check out some pics:

Looks great, doesn’t it??!

Now I know your next question is, well what about The Beach Bar? I can tell you that both the owners of The Beach Bar and the owner of Wharfside Village are working diligently to get that space reopened. But it’s going to take time. We will provide more details on that when we have details to share.

We’ll keep you posted on the progress over at the Rum Hut. In the meantime, picture yourselves sipping a nice cold drink on one of these chairs with your toes in the sand… Happy Monday everyone.

    Great news on Joe’s! Less so on the beach bar. Third visit since the hurricanes is scheduled, really got my fingers crossed that at least one will be reopened. Can’t tell you how much we’ve missed them on our last two visits!
