Molly Malone's at the Hotel (Tres Cocos) re-opened Friday. John did a report on his blog about it, …
The bar, which is situated on the ground floor (road level) of the Hotel first opened on 17 March 2012 but regrettably closed around six weeks later with the rooms of the Hotel never having a paying guest. And it had remained that way until yesterday. The Mary Celeste of hotels/bars you might say. That is until Bruno Nobrega and his partner Diana rented the bar and the Hotel.
Bruno and Diana came to Belize from Namibia (Bruno being born in Lisbon,Portugal) and lived on the mainland before finding their perfect business opportunity – the Hotel. The re-opening of the bar, Molly Malone’s, being phase one of the project.
So what’s the place like you’re thinking.
Well it’s very reminiscent of bars in the UK and, not surprisingly, Southern Ireland (and I have had the pleasure – if I recall correctly- of visiting quite a few). It’s got a comfortable (like its always been there) type of feel about the place.
