Happy hour from 3-6 offers $4 painkillers and rum punches as well as an amazing atmosphere and the best place to watch the sunset in Cruz bay. We go multiple times every time we visit the islands.

Just spent many evenings at the Beach Bar on this trip. We love the picnic tables with the beach side service!!! Katelyn (sp??) was our server several nights and was so friendly and helpful. It was great to have a local face around the island....More

If you are looking for an awesome spot to listen to live music, enjoy the beach and some bushwackers this is the bar for you. The staff is great, food and drinks top notch. This is a must stop when on St John.
