Barefoot Beach Bar & BBQ is the newest beachfront barbecue place on island. It’s a place where you can take off your shoes and step on the wooden planks and sand.The place was almost filled up when we arrived at past 7 p.m., missing a spectacular sunset we were planning to capture earlier. All the tables by the bar’s edge were taken but again, we were lucky to find one vacant spot near the stage where the After Nine band was playing a lively set.
Our drinks were delivered to our table in a few minutes and we started sipping them while waiting for our appetizers. The nachos and cheese were served on a rectangular wicker tray, followed by chicken wings with French fries.
I took a bite of the chicken wings and had to whistle. I’ve very low tolerance for spicy foods and their version of “not too spicy” was enough to make me cry. I had to sip my piñacolada after each bite.
For other appetizers to go with your drinks, you can try fried onion rings, chicken kelaguen, and fried Shanghai lumpia — all at $6 per order.
Check out the selection of standard mixed drinks: Hawaiian screw, orange blossom, vodka tonic and more at $6, or the premium mixed drinks such as Chivas with Coke, Jack Daniel with Coke and more. Cocktail drinks include Blue Hawaii, Mai Tai, Apple Bay, Mudslide, Cosmopolitan and others.
For those who prefer non-alcoholic drinks, you can order four seasons, fruit punch, Shirley Temple, mango, pineapple or orange slush. Barefoot Beach Bar & BBQ also serves soda, juices, domestic and imported beer as well as a draft beer per glass or pitcher.
Barefoot Beach Bar & BBQ is a place where can come-as-you-please without worrying if you’re in an appropriate attire. It’s a place where everything is open air, relaxed and time stands still as you breathe in the salty tang of the ocean breeze. You can be barefoot and let the sand caress and massage your ankles as you listen to the live band play your favorite songs. You can also just hang out and talk with your friends without having to shout to be heard.
