When we heard the name of this bar tucked into a corner of Ports of Call in Providenciales, T&C, we knew we had to make a stop to check it out.
Oddly enough, as soon as we stepped through the door, we realized we stopped in during our first trip to T&C in 2008. Deja vu…We hadn’t remembered the name, but definitely remembered the bar. We sat in the same booth as we had 8 years before and ordered another Turks Head.
Located in an area surrounded by glitzy hotels and resorts, Jimmy’s Dive Bar is a comfortable, non-pretentious place to hang out and enjoy some local beers, a rum or rum drink from his decent rum selection and some laid back conversation with other vacationers or his friendly bartenders and other staff, such as Gloribel – who eagerly told us about a rum she recommended from Venezuela.
We talked to Jimmy about island life and the realities of owning a business on an island and he said, “If you want to make a million bucks owning a bar in the islands, be sure to bring 2 million down with you!”
