In 2008, when Sharky’s founders Ben and Katie opened their bar in Tamarindo, it was because they saw something was missing. Tamarindo was a melting pot (sometimes literally) of locals and travelers from all over the world.
Yet there was no place to come together and watch the world’s sports. Well, no place that had every game on earth. No place to gather and enjoy the victories over an ice-cold beer. No place to suffer together through the heartbreaks (and have an extra shot to ease the pain.) So Sharky’s was born.
In 2010, a terrible fire destroyed the original Sharky’s and two of their neighboring businesses. It was a very sad day. But there was never a question that Sharky’s would gather its strength and rebuild. There were too many passionate and devoted fans. Too much love for the fun.
Later that year, with an amazing group of friends, customers and supporters, we re-built Sharky’s into a new vibrant reef. Stronger, faster, and even more fun.
Today, through hard work and good spirit, Sharky’s has become a Tamarindo standard. Whenever you’re in town, come on over to the shark tank. Pretty much every night you know it will be...Off the gancho!
