We recently wrote about Lovango Rum Bar’s incredible lineup of world renowned musicians. After the first couple of performances, nightlife at Lovango is certainly living up to the hype.

When Lovango opened in 2019, it quickly became known for its authentic Neapolitan style pizza and unique craft cocktails. And although live music and events were always in the cards for Lovango, COVID-19 and capacity limits pushed the timeline back. Lovango has now upped the ante this season with an extraordinary lineup of artists, believed to be the most impressive St. John has ever witnessed.
