Foxy’s Tamarind Bar

18.43° N and 64.71° W – Great Harbour, Jost Van Dyke, BVI.

According to their website, this is the location of Foxy’s Tamarind Bar. For those of you, like me, who’d rather get an address you can plug into your smart phone, you’ll be hard pressed to find a street address. Just sail in to Great Harbour, go ashore and look for the party. There’s usually one of some size going on in this eclectic place that boasts one of the greatest “Old Years Eve” parties in the world.

Foxy Callwood is the man behind the name and has been serving food & strong rum drinks to sailors and visitors since 1966. He’s quite the storyteller and loves to talk with and sing to the many folks who wander into his bar.

Foxy’s is a great place to people watch and drink rum – lots of it. Foxy even has his own rum – Foxy’s Firewater Rum, which you can purchase from his gift shop. Foxy’s serves up some serious rum drinks and as hard as we tried to work our way through his Rum Drink List during our week on JVD, we fell short – just slightly. Darn. Guess we’ll have to go back.

Foxy's-6-(600)-OFoxy has another bar on Jost Van Dyke at Diamond Cay called “Foxy’s Taboo” – named after his dog seen here.

We read somewhere that if dinghying in to Foxy’s for the Old Year’s Eve Party, you should bring a lock and chain for your dinghy, ’cause all dinghy’s look the same at night after some heavy drinking. Apparently revelers occasionally can’t even find their own boat, just pick another to pass out on and worry about finding their own in the morning. Must be that Firewater!!

    Hi Foxy this is your cousin, Nippy Hendricks niece, Hilda daughter wishing you all the best for the new year.

  2. On our recent visit to Jost, I noticed Foxy sitting out in front of the restaurant, as he often does. After a particularly long time of him sitting alone, I walked over to say hello. We ended up having a great conversation, with him walking me “out back” to share his vision of some plans and schemes he’s working on for the future of Foxy’s. He’s none too happy about the stop signs on the island, and says if/when they pave the road through Great Harbor (there is talk of it) Foxy’s as we know it will cease to exist. But, Foxy already has great ideas for what it will become…he’s a smart man!

    • We were impressed with how he kept up with current events. He asked where we were from, then started singing a comical song about our states politics and issues – hilarious! Would hate to see the road paved just because of the way it would change the look of Great Harbour, but glad he’s making plans in case!

  1. […] Foxy is a fixture in his own bar and can frequently be found serenading and weaving a tale for his patrons. In addition to some very delicious signature rum drinks, Foxy sells bottles of his own rum – Foxy’s Firewater Rum in his gift shop – the Foxhole. We especially enjoyed the “Dread Fox” – made with his own rum and “Foxy’s Punch” which includes a mango float. On Friday and Saturday night, Foxy’s has a BBQ and live music.
