Its called!!! Find a parking spot and do some walking. there are other places that have no or limited parking, If its worth it, people do some walking... Parking is a big issue for alot of resturants, even if they have parking, can be taken, so have to walk... We have gone to pinaple petes who has some spots in front, but all taken, and had to hunt for a parking space. If the resturant is that good!!! Walk...Spelling errors? who cares.

And just where exactly would you park on Billy Folly Road, even if you wanted to walk??? There is NO place to park there, that is not for a specific location.

I guess it depends on where exactly it will be.....near the beginning of the road there will be reasonably close street parking on Welfare road....if near BBB or further up then all bets are off....

We always walked to the old location from SBR so this probably will be closer for those people

Great for the people staying at the Atrium and not to far to walk for Simpson Bay Resort. Lees never really had a lot of parking options at their original location either. We always had parked in the Royal Palm lot as we had the pass from the sister resort Flamingo. Maybe Atrium will capitalize on this and charge hourly parking for non guests.

We are at SBR, just a short walk down, I hope Less will open but most likely not any time soon.

There weren't a lot of spare parking places at Atrium when we stayed there in May. I'd hate to be staying there and not be able to park when I got home for the evening.

There is a side street and if not theres simpson bay resorts area. A walk but doable. also bbb can be parking in there lot or outside of lot. There are spots. BBB has parking inside and right on road. Can find a spot. But since its not there yet, we are just guessing... Nothing on Island is easy, hit or miss. Even the best places to eat are a challenge to find parking.

Isn't the Atrium pass controlled either by card or dashboard permit?

Yes, I'm pretty sure it is like a credit card thing you put in a slot to get access to their garage, as I recall. They would have to put in a whole new system AND hire someone to man it, even if they wanted to rent out parking space, which I don't see why they would want to.

Not sure what your talking about. they have parking behind the road and out side. Sure it could be full but just need to turn in from billy foley road and get to parking for bbb. we have done it lots of time. There is some parking on the road as well. Listen, if someone wants to go to a resturant they will find a place for the car. and who knows!! maybe its good exercise for that are out of shape.lol

If by "they" you mean Atrium they have controlled access parking so I have no clue why that's an issue for discussion with Lee's parking...and yes, if you want to go to a restaurant you WILL find parking...and...we don't even know where it will be located!

Yes, it is. But it was suggested that they charge for parking, which I assume would allow non-guests access to their parking deck. Not a good idea, in my opinion.

They are building across from the Atrium and I am sure they have thought about providing parking spaces for their customers. We should not assume there will be no parking provided and run with all these unfounded ideas.

We saw the building going up last week when we were there. It is pretty much across from the Atrium, not as far up as the Greenhouse or Buck. There is absolutely no parking. I can't imagine there is any parking closer than Toppers or maybe in the plaza where Jimbo's is. I'm sure the Market Garden will keep you out of their parking lot.

We stay at SBR and walk whenever possible. To park at SBR you need a pass & I don't think BBB will let you park in their lot to go to Lee's. The parking lot by the Red Piano is full of their customers & the valet parking of the casino. In the past two weeks we never saw an empty spot on the street by BBB & certainly not in February when we are there. My guess is they will have valet parking like Isola & the casino. I have no idea where they park the cars once the Red Piano lot is full. The congestion in that area the past two weeks was unbelievable and the Flamingo isn't even open. To top all that off SBR provides valet parking for La Patrona & the Sports Bar by pulling over just after Isola.

We walk the road easily from Simpson Bay Marina. It isn't that far and the exercise will be helpful before and after a nice meal.

I think the main point is that Lee's is reopening and that is fantastic!!! The best red snapper on the island, hands down 😁 😎

Correct. Seems with many businesses on SXM, parking is given little or no thought. Convenient if one is staying at Atrium or other close resorts, otherwise not so much.

"I don't think BBB will let you park in their lot to go to Lee's."
BBB can't control or stop someone from parking in the upper lot along Billy Folly as I don't believe it really is theirs. I have found parking there numerous times in May/JUne but it isn't high season then.

If it is really theirs, which I doubt, unless they hire someone to watch where people go after they park how could they prove you aren't at the BBB having a drink before going to Lees

lol can you wait till January? We will be staying at penthouse apartment above greenhouse, right next to Atrium. Apparently we have complimentary parking somewhere across Billy Folley Rd? I will for sure be interested to see where Lee's is relocating to. Happy to hear they are opening again.

I still don't understand how you can just assume it's not theirs?? Regardless, I don't care to get my car towed, thank you very much. Edit--wait, doesn't the sign say that lot belongs to the GREENHOUSE, not Buccaneer?? Regardless, I'm not parking somewhere that specifically says that it belongs to a different business than I am going to.

At one time it used to say the parking was for the restaurant that was across the street on the other side of Billy Folly. Who knows who has it. Might just be who puts the signs up first and stakes a claim to it. LOL

Not saying it is gone and not sure who owns it or if any place does. I can't imagine the Greenhouse having a parking lot so far up the road from their restaurant but anything can happen on that island just like someone setting up a Lolo without permits. Captain D's for example. All speculation on my part.
Bottom line is that Lees is building and reopening which is another plus for the Simpson Bay area and the island.
