One Happy Island Tue 11 April - Closing of Kokoa Beach Bar

For your information - Today, Tue 11 April is closing down of Kokoa Beach Bar (at the Palm Pier near Radisson)... Apparently, they will be closing down for a month and opening with a whole new concept (it will never be the same)... If anybody is in Aruba, enjoy the last evening & please post some pictures ... I heard drinks will be on half price

Thats too bad, maybe. Seems like everybody wants to change things around to try to make it better but usualy end up just changing things around.
I like to go back to the places Ive enjoyed and see them be the same as I remember. Change is inevitable, but sometimes we lose when we change.

I love going there for happy hour and catching the Equator Band. Does anyone know if the band will be back when the renovations are done?

If they are closing for a month starting the 11th, odds are they will be opened when we get there on the 21st of May. arty:

LOL, yes island time is a lot like teenager time. I am going to hope that they want to open it asap because they will be losing money if they don't. I really wanted to sit and watch the sunset here, it is so close to the Wyndham.
