Sunset Beach Bar Is Closed

Sat Jun 18, 2005 5:49 am

I am here to advise the members here on a.net that currently the Sunset Beach Bar ( http://www.sunsetbeachbar.com/ ) has been temporaily closed. This is due to many different reason including but not limited to back taxes. Story is on the front page of the full Daily Herald today. According to the story, the island receiver's office places a lien on properties not in compliance and 10 to 30 days later, an auction is held. But going by there today many items were already being sold. Bar stools and some equipment.

The area around the bar is still open so you can still go in and take pictures and go down to the beach but for getting a drink there, well its out of the question right now.

I do have the owners email address but I feel like I should not post it here. You can contact me via email on this site and I will send it to you.


P.S MSYtristar I have not forgotten you I just up and moved down here I found a great house in the Beacon Hill area (keep on going down the road from SSBB, #26) I still have my wow account for Robyn.
Sorry I moved from SXM, looking for a new house on Anguilla now!

Thanks for being so clear...... So, what the *** are you talking about?
Here in the South of France we have about 5000 bars with this name....

Would be nice to know which one it is. (if its in France anyway..)

Oh NO! Dammit, hopefully it won't get turned into something else if and when it gets sold. I like my drinks, planes, beach, and women combo!

if you look at where he is writing from and knew anything about the airport and spotting there, you'd be able to quickly tell what he's talking about.

Either you're living in a vacuum, never click on the great SXM pictures with the Sunset Beach Bar, noticed his country is the Netherland Antilles, or bothered to click the website Panaman listed, he's talking about the Maho Beach bar.  Smile

Panaman, too bad too hear about the bar. That was on my short list of places to visit. But by the time I get down there it'll probably be open again who knows.

Check your email one of these days. I have a lot to fill you in on.

I'm off for SAT on Sunday and then STL on Thursday. Busy, busy, busy.

Man...I was there in November & was looking forward to going back & hanging out at the SSBB again this Thanksgiving. That was my hangout most of the trip.  Sad

Maybe somebody will buy it and reopen it...they had some big crowds there when I was there- maybe somebody saw that & would be willing to put money into it again.

A real shame, they had the best burgers and chicken sandwiches. On one hand, I dont see how this can happen, they raised the prices on everything and the 3 times I had been there this year, the place was packed so the money should have been there.


As for cold beer, just go to the chineese grocery store inside the property of the Caravanserai hotel. The price of beer is only $2.00. Go buy a few and go to the beach you also save on the tip!!  Smile

I occasionally price flights to SMX from FLL or MIA for the express reason of visiting this great area and spotting planes and the local 'mountains'  

I hope that this place is open when I get there....sounds like a great place to unwind after being blown away by a 744.

Off to PHL on Thursday and JFK on Monday - I hope to squeeze off a few pics and add to my personal site. Still backlogged with pics from my recent trips to CAK, CMI, DAY, DTW, IND, MQT, MSP and ORD......spotting is still difficult post-9/11, but alive and well!

As far France.....I'd rather visit Afghanistan or Iraq wearing an 'I love NY' t-shirt before I visit that rathole.

$2 million? That's a bargain for that place. The view alone is worth probably $1.5.
Still, you'd have to get 400 people to contribute $5000 each to come up with that kind of money. A tad out of my price range until our script gets purchased.

was curious to see if the Sunset bar and grill is still closed. Apparently, it looks like it might be up and running again, at least according to their website. This is definitely good news. Check out the webcam, thats a pretty good indication there back serving beers and hamburgers!

I'm in as well. Honestly, an aviation-themed bar there would probably be profitable just from A.netters, AND other random people at the bar who go "Holy crap, this is awesome, planes flying over, good cheap booze, and a topless beach." We'll be millionaires!!! I just have to explain to the girlfriend why she won't be getting an engagement ring for a long time when I blow that money on my bar investment!

It should be the government who is keeping this bar in business considering it brings in the tourists especially us A-neters.
P.S I know it is not the only source of income for the area but still a lot of money.

If this bargain to buy the place is for real, then I am in!!!!

I am from Dubai, and it would be nice to fill the place with photos of the different airlines and different flags of the carriers of the all the people who pitched it to buy it!!! Waow!!!

Then we can have a menu of drinks and dishes named after the airlines or crew or even airline slogans! It will become the International Meeting Place of A.Netters!!!!
