I was recently chatting to Lucas and Stavros, who told me they just had to open for the 2020 summer season, on Saturday 20th June, because they’ve missed you all so much, and conformed that naturally they’ll be following all health and hygiene protocols, knowing that Cyprus is one of the safest countries in the world because they got it right!!!
Start or Finish
A few years back, when I asked the guys ‘why Jungle Bar?’ they said; “because the centre of Napa, aka Bar Street or more recently ‘The Strip’ is like a jungle of different tunes with tribal beats and neon lights brightening bars, pubs, clubs, cafes, and shops and this bar is right where it starts, or finishes, or both, depending on which way you’re walking … or by the end of the night, staggering” 😉
Built with Passion
I watched Lucas and Stavros build the bar, converting it into an open fronted beach hut on the shores of the Jungle … it’s basic, wooden, natural, no frills and spills, and I love the way they’ve added more rope swings for seats, brilliant!, and you’ll notice there’s more than a hint of their obvious love of animals. But Jungle Bar is not just a bar, it’s a meeting place, somewhere to chat about whats on in Napa, somewhere to pick up tickets to the biggest clubs, events and pool parties and boat trips, some free, and with their compliments oh, and of course enjoy a drink or two while you’re there …
Behind the Bar
On that note, in the well stocked bar, coz there’s Keo, Cyprus’ favourite draught lager, 8 different bottled beers and just about every spirit you can think of including the House Vodka, sponsored by Russian Standard … but hey, when in the Jungle, do what all the tribes do, and order one of their Jungle Special cocktails served in a Fresh Watermelon, Coconut or Pineapple, with loads of straws, to share, one selfie to send to your mates back home lol, followed by loads more to really make them jealous 😉
There’s 42 Cocktails including 10 Signature Cocktails. Top of the list ‘Jungle Paradise’, a blend of Vodka, Strawberry, Pineapple and Grapefruit, plus 7 Speciality Mojitos, like their unique Zivania Mojito and my fav the Jungle Mojito, oh and the Blueberry Mojito too, hmm, might as well try them all because all night it’s buy one get one free here and you can add 2 shots to that haha!, oh and if you’re feeling a bit flash, you should check out their Champagne Cocktails!
Resident and guest DJ’s, start the mix at about 9 pm ’til late, spinning favourites from the 70s, 80s and 90s, a bit of R’n’B, commercial, classic hits, and even a little Drum n’ Bass. Extra entertainment can be arranged for special events and they love to host your Birthday Parties, Bachelor Parties, Hen Nights and Weddings and they’ll even decorate the place specifically for the occasion, oh and there’s BBQ events on the cards! … check out some of their videos here …
As it’s been a hard start to the season, the guys have introduced a few special offers … for example the buy one, get one free + 2 shots all night offer or if there’s 5 or more in your group, it’s buy one get one free with a bottle of Bubbles thrown in! Brilliant !!!
Sharing Exotic Flavours
I’m not supposed to say but here you can relax and enjoy a selection of exotic flavours chilled to your liking. Try the Lemon & Lime Twist, or my fav Blue Mist a blend of Blueberry & Mint, very coooool … oh, and there’s a Pool Table so you can crack a few frames.
You’ll find an interesting blend of nationalities coz of the multi-lingual staff speaking English, Russian, Greek, French, Bulgarian and Italian, yet they’ve kept their traditional Cypriot hospitality and home from home ambience … Check out their reviews on Trip Advisor
If there’s a group of you the guy’s are happy to come and pick you up, just give them a phone call and they’ll come and collect you, and if you stay all night they’ll drop you back too!
