Sud Bar

In the South Pacific, on tropical atoll called Fakarava, in the Dangerous Archipelago (the Tuamotus), there is this bar…


A hanging bar, built by the crew of a few cruising boats, from the wreckage washed ashore during 5m swell, completely from found and salvaged materials - the bar is named Sud Bar and depending on your language of choice might evoke thoughts of bubbles (English) or the compass direction 180 true (French).

Come on in, have some fun, carve your name in the hanging bar. The house specialty is fresh green coconut water with rum. The bartender (perhaps you?) opens the nut, the recipient drinks a few ounces, and the bartender tops up the nut with rum.

If you visit, take some time and some tools and leave the bar more over-the-top than you found it. Repair the damage, use only natural or found materials, and invite the entire anchorage for a Sud Bar Style evening.

Location: One of the motus in the West anchorage of the South Pass of Fakarava Atoll.
