Beatle Bar - Jacó, Costa Rica
I have to say to date, the most unexpected tribute to the Beatles I have encountered has to be the Beatle Bar located in the Pacific coast town Jacó, Costa Rica.
How it became the Beatle Bar is beyond me other than the fact that the watering hole is dotted with pictures of the Beatles. The owner is a big Beatles fan or there must have been a bunch of Beatles photos lying around Jacó.
Now, that a bar boasts lots of Beatles pictures or even that it's called the Beatle Bar is not in and of itself unusual. What is unusual about it is that it is ground zero in the flesh trade on the entire Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. On a given Friday or Saturday night, hippies and tourists mingle with perhaps hundreds of lasciviously dressed Colombian, Dominican and Central American girls "on the game" and has to be the oddest collection of humanity to be found in a single space I have yet to see in this life or probably in any other.
Something that has to be seen to be believed. So if you're a fan of the Beatles, utterly surreal experiences, or lasciviously dressed Latin women, pay the Beatle Bar a visit.
If anyone has a photo, email me. A picture is worth a thousand words.
