Having completed a thorough clean and polish plus a little painting and renovation, MJ's Bar has just re-opened a few days before Easter. We are still small in size but extremely large on hospitality with great service and good conversation. We offer a fantastic choice of drinks, an amazing list of cocktail's mixed and served to perfection and special prices during Happy Hours. On top of playing a wide variety of requested music at the volume that is suitable, we also have Live Music during the week. So, come on in, dance, tap your feet and sing along and you are all guaranteed a great nights entertainment. We are at the top of the Cul-de-Sac, adjacent to the Slave Market.

I liked the drinks at the bar (nice cocktails) and the prices were ok - but I found it quite off-putting that the lady serving at the bar was smoking in between serving. There were other customers smoking, so it must be legal in this bar (though did make my eyes sting after a couple of drinks), but it didn't... More

Hallo Jedimindtricks. Nice to read that you enjoyed our Cocktails at very acceptable prices. As you have found out, MJ's is legally classified as a smokers bar and smoking customers enjoy the fact that they do not have to go outside.

Visited MJ's every night of my holiday with my family, the bar is suitable for all ages, made to feel like a family member when we entered, it was brilliant. Drinks had plenty of alcohol in them, the cocktails were to die for and the music that Michael played had everybody up dancing. We made many friends during our stay... More
