Groovin At Smookeez By The Sea
Smookeez by the Sea has the distinction of being that chill spot on the coast with a rustic setting that lies closest to the centre, Montego Bay.
It is located in Ironshore, with world-renowned 18-hole golf courses and luxury hotels a few chains away. This laid-back, no pretence, OMG!-where-did-the-time-go spot is quietly getting notice from locals and tourists alike.
Trip Advisor reviews attest to its good food and service even while hailing its rustic charm.
“Our local fishermen from the fishing beach beside us, as well as from Lucea in Hanover, provide us with a daily net of fresh fish. This is perfect as our aim is to ensure our customers have the freshest and the best ingredients going into their meals. Catch of the day and excellent, quality service in a relaxed setting,” explained Lowell Spence, managing partner, Smookeez by the Sea.
Another draw for the location is Sunday Groovin, during which local entrepreneurs are often guest DJs and battle each other on the ‘turntables’.
“Sunday Groovin is all about the music and food with just awesome cool vibes. We have had Robert Russell and Johnny Gourzong from Sumfest as guest DJs. Montego Bay’s very own DJ Stretch is also here weekly,” Spence explained further.
