Sea Side Bar – For Booze, Bajan Cuisine and History
Perched on a hill across the street from the famed Bathsheba Rock, Sea Side Bar is the perfect place to stop to refuel on rum punches, Bajan staples and “old talk” while exploring Barbados’ unique east coast.
Like many rum shacks, Sea Side Bar is counterintuitively painted in Banks Beer’s bright red, white and black. So, it’s pretty hard to miss and manages to entice more than a few tourists away from snapping photos of the rock with a promise of laid-back good times soaked in local libations. But don’t be fooled, this isn’t a watered down rum shack experience. The little bar’s one room is dominated by the loud, raucous carrying-on of local regulars seated on white plastic chairs or installed on the bar itself — as it should be in an authentic rum shack.
