It’s one of the most popular spots at Belize’s Phillip Goldson International Airport and anybody who has traveled through Belize knows Jet’s Bar. Run by the charismatic little fellow by the name of Eden Holland, aka Jet’, he has made a great name for himself and his establishment; it was even named one of the Top Ten Best Bars in the World by AOL Travel.
With sadness, we report today that Jet’s Bar burned down over the weekend due to an electrical fault, according to reports. The fire reportedly occurred on April 27, 2013, at about eight in the evening; it was contained within the establishment and no other damages were reported at the Phillip Goldson International Airport.
Family, friends and fans of Jet’s Bar have expressed their sadness over the incident but the management of the place has stated that the airport will restore the bar, but details as to how long it will take have not been released.
Travelers will miss the cozy spot with all of the paraphernalia and great decorations that Mr. Jet had collected throughout the years, but we are sure fans and friends will help Mr. Holland bring Jet’s Bar back to normal in no time.
