A trip into a den of Caribbean spiny lobsters somehow doesn’t seem so bad when you’re jamming with the lively staff at Lobster Alive. Planted on the beautiful Bay Street beach, this restaurant is known for its succulent seafood menu and toe-tapping, sarong-swirling live jazz bands.
The live crayfish, scarce within Barbadian shores, are flown via private plane from the Grenadine islands to a wholesale distribution tank inside of the restaurant; a grand attraction – and a bit of a tease – for hungry diners.
Lunch or dinner patrons reeled into “LOBSTER ALIVE and all that jazz” by its musical pulses can expect an impressive wine list and well-rounded menu, which also caters to vegetarians and non-seafood eaters.
In between courses, beach chairs and umbrellas – just a stroll away from the deck – offer a cool view of the beach and its jet-ski and watercraft activities.
The open air dining experience is truly well-seasoned and constantly gaining popularity – a rhythmic gem of the City of Bridgetown.
