When beach bars that are for sale end up on the market, the asking price is usually way out of my price range. This beach bar in St. John, though, isn’t (yippee!) and while the beach may be absent, the vibe and view certainly make up for it. Island Blues, a waterfront restaurant and bar overlooking Coral Bay in St. John, US Virgin Islands, won’t even cost you in the six figures. With an asking price of $99,999, it gets close but when you get down to that price range, you start to grab the attention of people really fast. And if it’s good enough to be reviewed by Caribbean Travel and Life, which calls it a “rough-and-ready watering hole, popular with locals weary of the tourist scene,” it should be good enough for you.
Island Blues is currently listed on the Islandia Real Estate site and they describe the opportunity as “WATERFRONT Business on CORAL BAY,ISLAND BLUES RESTAURANT & BAR in the heart of the proposed marina. With current seating for 22(bar), 40 (table seating) and additional seating in the ”stage” area. Room on the property for expansion. Lease & equipment for sale.” While you won’t own the land, the potential possibilities this location could offer are only enhanced by the proposed new marina which according to the News of St. John, is coming whether you want it to or not. A marina full of hungry and thirsty yachties looking to spend their hard earned cash (or family trust)? Sounds like the ideal situation to me. And did I mention that the asking price is only $99,999? Let’s not forget that.
