It's a great time !!! We love it. Have gone everytime we've been on the island. They have drinking games (hubby lost out last year to a younger guy), musical chairs (quite the fun - ended up with four people on top of me and your feet can't touch the ground -hehehe), dancing, racing barstools, ride on the harleys for the girls. Just all in all a real fun place. ENJOY !!!!

Thanks for the link. I tried to make a reservation online, but it gave me a server error both times. I emailed the GM so we'll see what happens...

We've visited the Black Hog on both of our trips to Aruba. First time I thought it was the greatest offshore bar - saddle seats, hard-driving rock music, great looking lady bar-tenders, a live pig name "Harley" and lots of bikes.
Second time, the saddle seats were gone, soft music tinkling in the background, and a young lady working the bar that was not really suited for the task.
However, we'll be in Aruba agin in 17 days, and will be back at the Hog to see the latest round of changes - hopefully for the better.

I was there with the saddle seats, the other does not sound as much fun!!! Next time I am lucky enough to be down there, I will make a point to check it out!!!! Then I will report!!:D:D

There are some nights that are directed at we happy tourists, I believe it's Tuesday and Thursday nights (not sure about that though). It's the Rib/Beer/Corn-fest night. That's the night they also do the bike and (I think) pony show. That's also when the saddle-seats you mentioned come out. Motorized barstools... indeed!

Most other times I believe it's your regular local bar, regular patrons, regular staff people... just like a regular place.

Sometimes it's hard to believe that people lead regular normal lives in a place like Aruba. Personally I have to ask the locals where they go for a vacation, considering they live in a vacation capital.
Makes you wonder huh?

be well, brightest of blessings, and have a very cool time in Aruba!!!

I have emailed Penny, the manager at Black Hog 3 times about getting a reservation. She responded to my first email asking which day, how many people, etc. I responded with the answers and asked to have the reservation confirmed. I have yet to hear back. That was in May. I sent another email in June. No response to the email either. I give up. :mad:

I agree with one of the earlier comments in that if you are going to the Blackhog Saloon, you need to go when they are having their BBQ bash. If you any other time (as I have in the past), it is just a regular bar (it does not have the same atmosphere).

:cool:

They have been having problems with their email at Black Hog. They have not been taking reservations by email for a while as their system is not working (they are having a new website made so that should take care of the problem). They only need a 24 hour advance notice so you can have your concierge call when you get to Aruba.
