"Elvis' Beach Bar"
Elvis & Leslie Celebrating Birthdays!
This is Leslie... I, too, am making the final treks to the island. I finally have all my essentials in the apartment. Just back here in Vegas to finish up the rest of my things and tidy up work ends.
I am surprised you have never mentioned Elvis' Beach Bar. It is such a fun local hangout. The food is cheap and delicious!!! Elvis (a local lifelong Anguillian) is one of the most charming men I have met.
He makes each and every guest feel so special. Check out the New York Times Travel & Lesiure section Nov 9, 2008 where Elvis' Beach Bar was named the second best reason to go to the Caribbean (second only to the not yet opened luxury Viceroy).
Elvis hosts local bands and DJs nightly, makes for an incredible reggae island sunset experience. Try it, you won't be sorry.
Hope to run into you soon. I should be back on island by June 1 permanently.
Enjoy your site always,
Nori's Reply: Leslie, thank you so much for writing about Elvis' Beach Bar. I have been countless times after sundown since I moved to Anguilla in December, but have yet to write a story on the terrific spot! It is my favorite bar on Anguilla, but I haven't sampled any menu items yet. What would you recommend?
Best of luck getting everything in order and enjoying island life. I'm sure I'll run into you on Sandy Ground one of these nights (I've saved your number!).
Thank you again for the great story and the cute photo. :-)
