Bad Boys Beach Bar...

Is Bad Boys still around? They used to have great live music a few years ago. My wife and I used to go there at least a couple times every time we were in Playa and always have a lot of fun.

Yessie and Kirsti mourning the loss of Bad Boys!

It was a very sad day indeed.

Wah Wah and Zenzi do.
Lido has been doing some on occasion as well. It is a cool place.
There is no replacing Bad Boys for that old beach bar vibe.

Was it a bad storm that destroyed it or was it past it's prime? I agree that it was a great watering hole

It was torn down.
Owners of the property wouldn’t renew BB’s lease.

Certainly not a mega resort. Probably condos. The property hasn't been touched since the bar was demolished.

More to it than that, well, at least according to Teo. We have breakfast every other week. More sinister than not renewing the lease.
Maybe better said, "It is a great idea knowing when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em!"
