Nightlife on St. John

The get-away-from-it-all appeal of St. John holds true as the sun sinks below the horizon and the nightlife scene remains as laid back as it can be.  There are no loud dance clubs flashing strobe lights here, but you can still find a lot of ways to have fun.

Head to Cruz Bay for the best options, including several bars that keep things going with live music and the occasional DJ.  On nights when music isn't pumping through the speakers, there are trivia competitions or the option to get in a little karaoke.  For the most part, though, people here like to keep it simple and just enjoy mingling while they sip on tropical drinks and ice cold beers.  

You'll find a variety of different bars and nightlife venues and a couple of gambling sites on St. John.

If you'd like to experience some of the local night scene, you might want to consider 420 to Center. It is found within downtown Cruz Bay. Owned by a group of Boston Red Socks fans, 420 to Center was so named because it is 420 feet from home plate to the center of the field at Fenway Park. This newly build bar is a great spot to stop in for a drink and some grub while sports play on the televisions.

A second option is Parrot Club. Amidst the hopping nightlife scene on St. John is Parrot Club, the island's only gaming center. This keeps things busy because tourists don't have much choice, yet, the cool atmosphere makes it clear that it would stand out even if it were not the sole option. You can reach them at (340) 715-2582.

A third place worth considering is The Tap Room. For an unbelievably large selection of beer on tap, stop by the Tap Room and try the different local and imported beer. They're found in Cruz Bay, in western St. John.

The following table summarizes some key facts regarding 19 venues for after-hours relaxation.
