Foxy's Tamarind Bar Reopens on Jost Van Dyke

     Foxy's Tamarind Bar, one of the Caribbean’s  legendary beach bars has reopened in the wake of  Hurricanes Irma and Marie.  Foxy’s Tamarind Bar on Great Harbour on Jost Van Dyke has officially reopened its doors.

     “The storm blew away a lot of things but Jost Van Dyke is still here!” the bar posted on its Facebook page.  While Hurricane Irma hit the bar hard, Foxy’s team was able to put a new roof on its front beach bar, using materials that were salvaged locally.

     Until further notice, the bar is open Monday through Saturday, serving  a limited offering of mostly beer and burgers.  It’s not full blown Foxy’s, but it’s a start to bring it back to its old self.  Here’s hoping there’s a great Old Year’s Night come the end of December.  “We will be waiting and sippin’ on some firewater rum,” the bar said.  Even better? The New Horizon ferry is operating to Jost Van Dyke.
