New Bar & Grill Opens in Cruz Bay

The Upstairs Bar & Grille opened last Friday.

Hello everyone, I have some good news as many of you head back to work today. A new bar and grill just opened in Cruz Bay! How exciting is that?!

Back in October, I told you how the old Dog House Pub space was being transformed into The Upstairs, a spot that is owned by Christie Register and Andy Peter. (The couple also co-owns The Windmill Bar along with Ronnie Jones and his family.) Well Christie and Andy finally got the go-ahead to open late last week, and The Upstairs is now officially open for business!

For those of you who are not familiar with this spot, it is located in Cruz Bay about a block from the ferry dock. It is directly across the street from The Longboard and Cafe Roma and beside Connections. And as its name indicates, it’s upstairs, on the second floor.

I stopped by The Upstairs yesterday and took a few pics to share with you. Check them out:

New bar and four televisions
Coors Light is on special for happy hour from 3-5pm daily.
A new spacious deck
Lots of outdoor seating

It looks nice, doesn’t it?

Their menu is simple, yet yummy. There is a variety of hot dogs (all kosher), some apps, burgers and more. Check it out below:

The Upstairs opens at 11 a.m. daily and is open until it closes. 🙂 They offer happy hour from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. daily. During that time, Coors Light is just $3, and they also offer $8 bomb buddies (a combination of an energy drink and flavored vodka). You get two shots – one for you and one for your buddy – for the $8. And as you can see in the picture above, The Upstairs has four television so it’s a great place to watch a sporting event. Andy wanted me to let you know that all football games will be shown in their entirety, regardless of how late they last.

It can be a tad confusing finding the entrance to The Upstairs, so I made a quick video for you.
