Popular St.Kitts Beach Bar Listed Among 25 Best in the World
Mr X’ Shiggidy Shack is known to St.Kitts-Nevis natives and visitors as one of the liveliest, most intimate, natural Beach Bar and Restaurant on the islands. Now the world will know about Mr X’ Shiggidy Shack thanks to International Publication the Men’s Journal and writer Terry Ward.
Ward listed the Shiggidy Shack on St.Kitts as one of the 25 Best Beach Bars in the World. The list includes bars in St. Kitts, St. Barths, Cape Cod and Sitka, Alaska.
Ward describes the Shiggidy Shack as a place where Fresh Caribbean spiny lobster is inevitably sizzling on the grill when Mr. X’s bartender ignites the Thursday night bonfire, casting long shadows across the Frigate Bay .
“It’s the perfect relief for travelers seeking relief from artificial resort environments,” says Robert Cole of Menomonee Falls, WI, of the Shiggidy Shack. Limbo dancers shimmy beneath poles set aflame, live soca music – a calypso style incorporating Indian musical instruments – blasts from colorful shacks on the beach and locals shake their booties alongside tourists up for a good time.
Ward wrote that Members of the local Hash House Harriers club and tourists from the nearby Marriott are the regulars at the Shack while he recommends trying the Shiggidy Jig which is the house special and A potent rum drink
The 25 includes Duke’s Barefoot Bar Waikiki, Descanso Beach Club, Catalina Island and Bankie Banx Dune Preserve, Anguilla among others.

When my family and I go to St. Kitts, this is our first stop straight from RLB Airport. We’ve know Mr. X for 21 years. FYI, the plot of my first published mystery/suspense fiction novel, Desperate Measures, takes place in St. Kitts. I created a fictitious establishment, Mel’s Lobster Shack, which is very similar to Shiggidy Shack, bonfire and all. http://www.cindycromer.com
