Charlie’s Bar

Charlie’s Bar (Zeppenfeldstraat 56, San Nicolas) –– this famed bar was founded in 1941 by the original Holland-born Charlie Sr. and Marie Brouns. The part of Aruba where Charlie’s is located (San Nicholas) became a boom town during World War II. Seamen, contractors, refinery and harbor workers helped put Charlie’s Bar on the map. Decades later, tourists get drawn in for the bar’s “lived in” atmosphere, due to all the mementos and photos pasted on its walls.
