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.
