The back of a St. Bart’s bar is painted to resemble a tropical paradise, which is, of course, exactly as St. Barts bills itself to the world. I liked the way the real palms reach out to embrace the painted ones. Meanwhile, signage is frantically at work here as well. A signpost bearing eight small signs incongruously aims its arrows at the only door in the image – the entrance to the bar’s toilet. It is locked, and the small blue signs on the door inform guests, in French and English, to get the key from the bartender. The signpost itself, which herald “The Route of the Pirates,” urges guests to take advantage of the bars many other special features.
