Since I moved to Belize over 5 years ago, there have been rumors that one of San Pedro's most popular beach bars was going to move or shut down. The leased prime property where they are situated is just too good. Condominiums or a hotel were bound to come.


A few days ago a giant sign went up on the lot. It's a bit depressing. What is better than a simple wooden palapa bar with cheap drinks, great bartenders and a steady group of regulars (it's pretty much the Belizean equivalent of "Cheers") directly on the beach? Not much.


Here is the sign. (I don't see BC's in this drawing.)


The sign is almost as big as the bar.

The only solace I can take is that the proposed condominiums are priced very high (starting at $599k) and this project could take a WHILE to get going.

But from what I hear, the owner is scouting out new properties (moving northward.) Wouldn't it be nice if she could take the whole building with her? I can only imagine that when she does move, there is going to be one HUGE blow-out farewell party. We should probably all start preparing for that one.

Nothing will happen....the bar will remain......the market is flat and there is no equity to do construction.............unless of course.....she is still living in the fantastic world.

The owner has some prime beach land further up the coast too.

The owner isn't evil, in fact the owner has leased this prime beach land to BC's for 14 years.

The land could have been sold hundreds of times over during those years.

BC's was built there with the understanding that is was a temporary site.

BC's has been at 2 other locations before this one. Maybe some people just don't realize the full history.

I imagine if Charlene is up to it then BC's might rise again in a new location some time soon.

Ok, if Charlene doesn't relocate, SP will need a pretty big homeless shelter:)

I'll believe it when I see it, but hopefully if they move, BCs will still be BCs! It is my favorite beach bar of any place in the world. I have laughed my butt off in that place! smile
