Thank you guys and girls.

We have lived on the island for over 10 years. Bar 27 is the perfect spot for lunch after our photo excursions or rowdy rock and roll!
Thanks for treating us like friends rather than customers.
See you soon, Sunshine

The 27 name refers to the age at which so many rock n roll talents have gone to the great beyond. This is a bar that wears its musical tastes proudly on its sleeves.

At any hour of the day, you can walk in, be greeted by one of the owners, and helped right away by one of their friendly bar staff. There is classic rock playing constantly over the sound system and, frequently, on the video monitors. It also features live music several nights a week - not just rock, but a variety of international styles as well.

Despite its location on one of the most desirable streets in Pietermaai, the vibe at 27 is unpretentious and low-key. A rather shy but friendly dog wanders in and out. The food is basic American pub grub; 27 isn't trying to be a gourmet destination. It is, instead, a place for people who love rock to hang out, listen, chat with other like-minded folks, and have a drink or a bite to eat. 27 is what the Hard Rock Cafes should have been instead of the overly-commercialized spaces they've become.

Think a small Caribbean island like Curacao doesn't have any rock cred? Think again. Curacao's most famous rocker, Barry Hay, the frontman for the Dutch band Golden Earring, is playing there with his new band, Flying V Formation, this Saturday.

When I write reviews, I measure places against what they are trying to be, not against what other people wish they were. In this case, 27 knows exactly what it wants to be: the island's premiere rock and roll hangout. In that it succeeds brilliantly.

Great vibes, great music and wonderful staff. An awesome all round experience. An easy walk from the hotel and not hard to find. A popular spot with all.
