For the "old timers" Thunderball Tavern Sign Bahamas

I wish this place was open when I visited. All I could do was imagine how much fun was had here.

Yes, lots of fun was had there.
The mural was painted by a couple of (famous) German cartoonists, in about 1993/94.
I painted the roof sign in 1993.

My daughter's wedding reception was also held at Club Thunderball (March '94).

And the actual Pirate Trap (circa 1994).

Great photos,thx.
Had good memories from that place in the mid-90s.
Last time we went there was November 2013 but it was closed.
