The Story

Featured on the Travel Channel and voted by Caribbean Travel & Life Magazine as one of the best beach bars in the Caribbean, Elvis’ Beach Bar now needs your help to rebuild after Hurricane Irma.


Help Elvis & Brett rebuild their life’s passion, Elvis’ Beach Bar, was hit hard by Hurricane Irma on September 6th, 2017. Elvis and Brett have spent the last 11 years, building Elvis’s Beach Bar up from a single boat drug out onto the beach to the wonderful island getaway that it was up until just days ago! The many wooden structures that make up EBB were severely damaged and are uninsurable due to the nature of their beach location. Brett also lost all of his personal possessions in the hurricane.  We also have two skilled carpenters from Brett’s hometown in Maryland willing to donate their time and expertise to rebuild when we secure the funds to provide their transportation to Anguilla.  

To make matters even more challenging, we are without power for the foreseeable future and making this all happen on generators. We are going to need a lot of help and resources to get back up and running as quickly as possible and also to rebuild the infrastructure that makes up this beachfront island haven.

We appreciate all of your love & support and any donations that you are able to make in helping us rebuild! Every little bit helps- and thank you again for reading, caring and supporting us both over the last eleven years and now in our time of need.

Our “new normal” is still incredibly intense as we work to rebuild in a few months or weeks (and on an insane shoestring of post hurricane infrastructure), what took ten years to grow! We still need your help. It hasn’t been easy, at all! Rebuilding the buildings and infrastructure, coordinating basic building supplies, generators, but we are getting there. With each layer of rebuilding we are realizing just how much of our infrastructure was destroyed by Hurricane Irma.  

We are thankful for your love and support and giving a 110% everyday with hope in our hearts, to rebuild Elvis’ Beach Bar. It’s a place where you come to relax and enjoy each other’s company where you come to remember what life is really all about. Today it is also a place that still needs the basics, a refrigerator, glassware, Point of Sale system, door knobs… the list goes on. We appreciate any continued support you can provide. Please also share with others! Always Love!

An update from Brett: 1st large shipment of supplies will "hopefully" be on this Thursday's boat, which means on Axa Monday. It contains 5 Generators, and lots of building supplies and tools for the rebuild, Which will hopefully start as soon as I get back on island.  Getting back on island won't be easy. I'm still waiting on flight to start up from PR or STX so I can get to AXA.  Nothing has been easy. Miami is over whelmed with hurricane victims from all over the Caribbean. Phone lines at shipping company always busy Lowe's store computer system crashing. It's been a mess. 

Thank you again for your support and contributions!
