The Hungry Sailor in Coconut Grove, where Sandbar is now, was well known for its reggae and penny beer nights. According to this web reference, they also made a mean chicken sandwich. Here are some more web references, mostly from the New Times archives.

  • Do you remember when a machete wielding Briton got blasted, to death, with guns, by the police, outside the place back in 95'? [click]
  • "Remember the seedy raunchiness of Coconut Grove's Hungry Sailor and how cool it was to sit in its dark environs and guzzle ice-cold Red Stripes to the sounds of a live reggae band?" [click]
  • High profile DJ "Josh Menendez had his own modest Monday-night party at the Hungry Sailor in Coconut Grove." [click]
  • "Closing down at the Hungry Sailor, reggae in an English pub setting, a resolutely low-voltage crowd save for a stunning Ethiopian waitress, luminous and exquisite as an orchid, a beacon of possibility and hope." [click]
