For those of you who know me, and if you don’t you have probably guessed by the title of my blog, I like to enjoy the finer things in life. I do have an inner beach bum, but nothing beats a classy joint with people who know how to party.
As part of my Caribbean Cruise on Viking Sea in March this year, I had the pleasure of spending some time in Barbados. During my whirlwind trip of the Island I met Anna, a lovely Italian lady from Milan. Over conversation, Anna told me how she had moved to Barbados five years ago and was now running her own bar. I immediately felt a huge sense of admiration (with an equal amount of envy), as she had turned her dream into a reality.
Corky’s Garage is located on the west coast of the island, opposite the beautifully historic St. James Parish Church. Set within a modernised classic Barbadian chattel house, Corky’s Garage offers a relaxing place to enjoy cocktails, cigars and conversation.
Anna has brought her Italian flair to the menu’s of Corky’s Garage. Serving authentic Italian dishes including homemade pizza and pasta.
The menu changes monthly, dishes currently on offer include:
At Corky’s Garage you can enjoy a fine selection of craft beers, gins or whatever takes your fancy.
Fancy a cocktail? Liquid Expressions is a regular event at Corky’s Garage where Mixologist Alexnder Davinci shows off his incredible talent for making delicious cocktails that are works of art.
If cigars are your thing, Corky’s Garage have a great selection to satisfy any cigar aficionado.
A popular night at Corky’s Garage is Sax and Trax with talented saxophonist Mylon Clarke.
Corky’s Garage is open from five o’clock in the afternoon until late. It’s a great place to party until the early hours and local celebrities such as Arturo Tappin and DJ Timeless are regular visitors. Anna’s outgoing and happy personality is what infuses the great food, cocktails and decor is taking this friendly upmarket Barbadian bar well on it’s way to being an island legend.
I can’t wait to go back to Barbados and get myself a Corky’s Cocktail.
