What started out as the Coco Mar discothèque and suffered a loss of half of the venue, the owners of the concession of that property decided to have some new blood come in to keep a restaurant/bar themed business in the location.
Burdened at the time with only an upstairs bar and a downstairs kitchen, the place was hard pressed to find someone to change the image and the obstacles of a terribly bad layout.
Three years ago, Robert and Allan got together to open Beach Bums. They slowly changed the image of the bar and it quickly became a place to see live music like Yerba Buena, Dogandul, Calle Latina and even Raggae star Andrew Bees formally of Black Uhuru.
After the first year of business and the agony of the new park be built in front of their restaurant, Robert built a new bar downstairs that ignited the sales and brought new life to the beach area and volleyball court.
We can say that ElCocoBeach.com will miss the Ceviche, Ribs and the extremely cold beer that they always served. We will also miss the shots of Jagermeister with Robert and the bartenders, not in that order.
Stop by Beach Bums before it closes in July and sling a few back. More information will be posted for the Beach Bums Blowout but we do know that Bobby Brown will be playing his last night at Beach Bums on July 6th starting at 6pm.
