Legendary NYE Bar In British Virgin Islands Still Celebrating In Post Hurricane Irma Era
The New Year’s Eve party is still on at Foxy’s on Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands.
Despite the damage done by Hurricane Irma to the BVIs, this legendary bar and its legendary NYE party is happening to bring and end to 2017 and the beginning to 2018.
There is a toga party theme – “The Fall Of The Roman Empire” – so bring your bedsheets and your best party attitude and celebrate with others on the islands, boaters, travelers, rum drinkers and even Foxy himself.
Called the Foxy’s Old Year’s Night/New Year’s Eve, it features DJs DJ Avalanche and Dj Dre, plus live musical guests. The NYE party here traditionally has a couple thousand people from around the world in an outdoor beach bar setting.
The rum drinks are flowing and a band plays in what is literally the bar’s back yard. In the front, people are dancing, drinking and carrying on like, well, it’s the last day of the year. A long-standing tradition involves wearing a mask.
For those who want (or need!) to eat, Foxy’s is selling VIP tickets to a 3-course dinner complete with a private VIP area, a bottle of Veuve Clicquot and party masks. For reservations — [email protected]
And keep in mind this is a shorts-and-sandals affair; no black ties required and no heavy coats are needed to stay warm.
Foxy’s and the BVIs is one of PubClub.com’s New Year’s Eve Party Destinations.
“YES YES YES New Year’s Eve is a go,” Susan Zaluski, Old Near’s Night event coordinator, told PubClub.com in an e-mail message.
For those wondering what the BVIs looks like now, there’s been a lot of rain the past couple of months and the vegetation is already getting green and lush again.
