Yes very sad but I doubt it will stay closed for long. Maybe new management... It is a landmark (and also I believe in the Guiness Book - closest bar to the end of a runway) and one that could very well do profitably if managed correctly. Time will certainly tell but if someone does snatch it up, I wish them well.


Life is not a child's game of follow the Leader. Instead, life is more about finding one's own purpose in life....your life's plan, and then making a positive difference on earth.

I think they lost their case against Island Government. This has been gong on for a while now.

it was island government irina or Caravanserai?
Caravnserai owns the location and they were leasing from Caravanserai.
I thought caravanserai wnated them out.

Actually I think it's government. Remember them not paying the taxes and stuff being auctioned off the year before last (I think).
When we went to Caravanserai to look at a unit they told us about BB and we asked about SSBB and they said no, they were staying. SSBB is outside the gates of the Caravanserai lot.
Cheers (drink at BBB!)
