Its single-story bungalow façade was long a rotisserie eatery popular with those leaving Nikki Beach in a drunken haze; these days it's a lively new bar that brings a bit of nightlife to otherwise sleep St. Jean. Inside and past a picky doorman, a full revamp exposes loft beam ceiling with industrial lamps accentuating a room of oversize sofas, booths and long bar with impressive mixology and premium drink selections. Walls feature a mix of pop art and built-in shelves of books and bric-a-brac that lend a charming, living room feel. Weekends feature promoted DJs as well as a seasonal calendar of events and theme nights.
Having outraged many locals by requiring a modest dress code, i.e. no short or flip-flops, the bar is still a welcome nightlife option for area residents looking to stay local.
Operated by local entrepreneurs, Modjo brings a bit of upscale nightlife to late-night St. Jean.
