Will Cruz Bay Corner Be Hot Spot?


Firstbank will move to the Marketplace, according to sources.


CRUZ BAY — There is little information available, but the landmark FirstBank building in downtown Cruz Bay is apparently going to be the hub of the thriving St. John nightlife scene as the possible site of a new boutique hotel, restaurant and bar.

The new enterprise may join neighboring restaurants the Across the Street bar located between the bank building and the Julius E. Sprauve School and the iconic Woody’s Seafood Saloon across the street and La Tapa fine dining in creating a hub of restaurants in the center of town which will soon include The Longboard restaurant under construction in the former Joe’s Diner location.

FirstBank will be moving to the former Scotiabank location at The Martketplace commercial complex in Enighed, according to St. John Tradewinds sources.
