St. John Beach Bars – Joe’s Rum Hut, Cruz Bay

Tagged: , , , , , ,

Joe’s Rum Hut, a beach bar located on St. John in the US Virgin Islands, is a happy hour favorite in Wharfside Village due to its $3 You-Call-Its. Known for its mojitos made from fresh mint and limes and its coladas, daquiris and margaritas, Joe’s Rum Hut was recently named one of the best beach bars in America by Men’s Journal. In the article, the author states that “it’s hard to trump this Fruit Loops-hued tiki bar on Cruz Bay Beach about a minute’s walk from St. John’s ferry dock. Rock, country, and reggae music spill into the street, and patrons often space out their drinks with a swim. “I always recommend to go for the daily you-call-it happy hour,” says Mike Messeroff, who lived on St. John for a year, “Anything you can dream up – beer, liquor drinks, frozen cocktails – is three bucks, including top shelf. Incredible.”” The highlight of the article for me? A “simple mojito made very quickly.” I love mojitos and one, they’re never made quickly and two, they’re never cheap. At Joe’s Rum Hut, they’re made as fast as you can order them and for $3 – top shelf liquors included. I’m not even sure there’s a need to continue this article.


The Yelp and Trip Advisor reviews are glowing with most of them highlighting the aforementioned You-Call-It happy hour. In case you were wondering, it’s from 4-6 pm every day.
