I'm wanting to know if that bar downtown C'sted opened I think it was on king St? it was up for sale/rent last years jump up. I won't be back on isle until winter/December but looking for a bar property to rent or buy. (I already know!! so go ahead and let the dogs out!) You all are my island eyes and ears.

nothing on king in the historic district, you've got parrots cove on strand and queen cross and the moonraker next to bacchus and the old indies on company and then there's another upstairs place kitty corner from parrots cove but i hear it's a mess and needs alot of work

I don't have a certain place I want to be,but I was thinking of the place I want to call it Studio 54 or something went out of buisness,the owner was just done,it has the thre level deck and stage in the back. Of course a beach location would be ideal,F'sted maybe. If you could keep eyes and ears open. I'm liking F'sted because of the wetter climate and I like there plus I'm thinking of the potential of cruise passengers but I love C'sted too....

yeah he's says he's open th-sat but i'mnever downtown thatlatecausehe doesn't open till 9:30or 10, i think he wants 185,not worth it.,i work in the heart of the historic district,it's not so much the rent or the inventory it's the wapa bill and owners will generally try to slide that one under the rug

yeah,I know all about WAPA that's why we will rely on generators and ice cold beer!! I really like the harbour area in F'sted and that would be a great spot to catch the cruise passengers.

How about the Sand Bar in Fredericksted? I heard it was for sale. Great location.
Or the Full Moon Bar in Cane Bay. That is a great spot.

EVERYTHING is for sale here,honestly if you want to think outside the box,we could use a high end strip club here,with women and male dancers on different nights and maybe some drag shows occasionally, none of the bars here have a hook to get people in,they're all the same dumps and i'm not talking male dancers for guys to watch but for women and bachlorette parties and ladies night out

it's just something different, i worked at the gay 90's in mpls for a few years and it was 8 bars under one roof, we have no dance bars here with good music,we have no class strip joints,we have no piano bars here or cabarets we got alot of nothing here and i think there's a need or a niche for it,we have enough sport bars sharkeys has that covered but not enough "smart"places one of the bars in mpls has men and women taking showers onstage in a booth,we need good dance music and light shows

I love the idea,I think it would be more like an event rather than a every-night thing maybe once a week,we are all about hiring bands and Dj's to play the music and dance (on the bar if lyou want to). TRW you're getting me even more exicted to begin my search for the right place! I looked up Blue Moon-love it!

gotta do it downtown or center island,nobody from the east end will drive that far and drink,it's an island reality that no one will admit too but everyone does
