  1. Great spot. Food and drinks are good and reasonably priced and the Sunday Pig roast with live music is a great time!

  2. Not exactly sure when this ad was. never really looked. Wah Wah had undergone a lot of staff changes in the last couple years. I’ve been a regular here for the last 3 years. As
    of the last 6 months or so, lots has changed. However, the prices are still the cheapest, chairs are free, service as always is amazing, and the live music is pretty much everyday from 1-4, and sometimes from 4-7 or 8.

    that place sucks the ownwers are gready ….. money change people

  4. we will give Wah Wah one more chance this year, but that is all. After spending most morning/early afternoons there for 5 weeks, averaging $40 – $50 per day, we were treated very poorly by one of the owners (woman). Not just us, but several of us. Really didn’t know why, as there was no real reason. If they do not want the regulars money, then okay. Hope it has changed.

      Yes it is closed permanently. There is no new on who might open another beach bar here or what is going to happen to the property.

  8. Heard it might be open again?

  9. I am really disappointed to hear that Wah Wah is closed. We are going there in January. Any suggestions on a similar type beach bar?

    • There is Inti Beach which is close by and small. Lido Beach Club is a little larger and just north by 10th street. This has become the replacement to wah wah.

  10. Thank you. We will check out these other options. I hope to do some running there as well.
