    $5+ can beers and $10 cocktails? What a joke.

    Walked by there yesterday (Memorial Day) just to see the place. It was closed, but two obeservations were made.
    1. It smelled reallly bad. I don’t know why, but from the sidewalk there was a definite stench in the air from the sand. I guess that is expected if it is the real deal, and came straight from the beaches of Ocean City.

    2. Where are the palm trees??!! I envisioned large (real) palm trees shipped in from a nursery, to help give the place a real feel. Sadly, I only saw one tiny, plastic palm tree in along the wall. Very very sad.

    Oh well…

  3. Makes me miss Island Jim’s Tiki Bar in Brookland… now that was a beach bar!

    @Mike – The Beach Bar’s website states the bar will be closed every Monday. They may have left money on the table sticking to that strategy on the holiday weekend. But logistically it is never easy ramping up to full hours immediately with an entirely new staff.

  5. I don’t see how this place will get less crowded as time goes on…

    It’s $5 for cans of beer at Chinatown Coffee, how is it a bad thing at a locale like this? The Passenger charges $9+ for all their drinks.

    How in the world are these prices considered out of line with anything else in the neighborhood, much less the city?

    I’m looking forward to trying this place out very soon.
