Tom Cruise at a Beach Bar – Then and Now

Tagged: , , , , , ,

I don’t know if Tom Cruise slinging drinks at a beach bar in the movie “Cocktail” was the inspiration for me to one day own my own beach bar but it would make a pretty cool story for the grand kids some day. The beach bar scenes were filmed at Dragon Bay Beach, Port Antonio in Jamaica. The beach bar is now called, what else, Cruise Bar. You can view a current photo of the beach bar here and here.

This clip features the classic tune “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” from Bobby McFerrin which, if I’m correct, was the first non-instrumental song to hit #1 on the Billboard charts.
