Well folks, this isn’t the best news to begin the week with. After nearly 20 years in business, Aqua Bistro – the popular Coral Bay bar and restaurant – has closed.
“There was a breakdown in lease negotiations,” owner Andi Vacharat told me Sunday night. “We are grateful for the support we received during our time in the community.” Andi co-owns Aqua Bistro with Carrie Glenn. The pair took over the restaurant back in 2017.
Aqua Bistro was located in the Cocolobo complex, across the street from Coral Bay harbor. It was located in a courtyard beside Dolphin Market and next door to Salty Mongoose and Surf Club Cantina.
This might not be the end of Aqua Bistro, however. (Fingers crossed it’s not!) Andi said she and Carrie are looking at potential spaces around the island. I will keep you posted on that.
