Soggy Dollar Bar

Soggy Dollar Bar (White Bay, Jost Van Dyke) —  this is perhaps the best-known beach bar on Jost Van Dyke island. The Soggy Dollar is reputedly the birthplace of the popular BVI drink the “Painkiller”. This bar carries its name because when it was built, there was neither road nor dock (there is now a road from Great Harbour, but still no dock). To reach the beach where the bar is located, it is a common practice for boaters to anchor off the beach, swim to shore, and pay for their drinks with wet money.
