Basil's Bar Mustique
As soon as we knew Basil's Bar is in the 1000 Places book we had to go to the legendary place for parties where everyone is made welcome. Basil has created a vibe that transcends stature or position in life. Sailors party with business moguls, high fashion models, gardeners, rock stars and just about anyone from any nation. Basil's Bar is a leveler, whose mantra is to live in the moment as Basil does and enjoy the wonders of life. Established in 1976, we felt a cocktails or two to be sipped on a table in the corner was the perfect thing to do. Rum Punch, extensive wine list, fruity blended drinks were tempting though. The kitchen at Basil's Bar is open from 8am until 10pm. Great banana pancakes and omelets are a popular breakfast, burgers and French fries for lunch and lobster for supper. We were going back to the Friendship Rose for lunch, so just time for our fourth cocktail.................
We just sat and drank and drank in the atmosphere, with the blue waters behind Bear as a back drop.
The ceiling made from Bali teak was very unexpected
One of the barmen - Bertram surprised us by introducing us to the man himself
Basil and a thrilled Pepe
ALL IN ALL A CARIBBEAN WOW
A VERY BEAUTIFUL SPOT TO SIT AND DO A BIT OF PASSAGE PLANNING FOR 2011
IS THAT WHAT IT'S CALLED NOW
