Looking for a quirky Caribbean bar, a fashionable bar in the Caribbean, or a Caribbean village rum bar where you can drink and play dominoes with the locals?
Then have I got some goodies for you… I reckon these are some of the Caribbean’s best bars:
Stylish air-conditioned bar in St Lucia – The Cane Bar & Late Night Bar
This chic bar – the Cane Bar – at the Jalousie Plantation in St Lucia is the bee’s knees. I love it.
It is somewhere you can hide from the steamy Caribbean nights… it’s an air-conditioned bar, trendy, serves fab tapas-type snacks, has cuddle-up bar stools for two and the barman makes a mean lemon drop cocktail.
The adjoining Late Bar is an intimate super-trendy lounge with low lighting, funky seating, and great music – definitely a romantic venue for pre-dinner cocktails or a late nightcap.
Quirky bar in the ocean – The Pelican Bar, Jamaica
At the other end of the spectrum, the Pelican Bar off the Westmoreland Coast in Jamaica has quite a different WOW factor. Rickety, almost open to the elements, needing a boat ride to get there… FAB. What character this place has.
What a super-duper quirky bar and undoubtedly a ‘don’t miss’ if you’re in this part of Jamaica. It’s not far from Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa so if you are on honeymoon in Jamaica at this Sandals resort this quirky bar in the ocean is well worth a taxi and boat ride to experience it.
Jamaica village rum bar on stilts at Beeston Springs, Westmoreland
A more friendly bar in Jamaica will be hard to find. It’s up in the Westmoreland hills in the southwest region of Jamaica. The bar clings to the hillside and is perched on stilts. Here you’ll mingle with absolutely charming villagers who are more than willing to test your dominoes skills.
Believe me, they know every domino that’s left in your hand after about five moves. If that.
