The Top 5 Places to Grab Drinks in the Turks & Caicos
You’re on vacation. Time to hit the nightlife – Caribbean style. Ocean-front views, stunning sunsets, tiki torches, Caribbean-inspired tapas and fruity cocktails await on your night of fun and slightly drunken revelry.
Even the highly-regarded Fodor’s recommends Magnolia, not only as a place to dine, but also as a place to watch a magnificent sunset. Situated high on a bluff overlooking the gorgeous Turtle Cove Marina, Magnolia offers an impressive wine list of specialty wines and various cocktails and treats. Try some dessert with your appellation of choice: the Banoffee Pie (bananas and toffee on a graham cracker crust with whipped cream) and the Vanilla-Roasted Strawberries drowned in port-reduction wine are not to be missed.
2. Bay Bistro
Located at The Sibonne Hotel – just beyond the dunes is Bay Bistro…….where the deck is raised because you are just steps away from the gentle lapping of the waves. Indeed, the Bistro offers some of the Island’s best panoramic ocean views because of its close proximity to the water, making it the ultimate location to enjoy your choice of sweet cocktails, vintage rums and other fine spirits. Watch the sun set in dramatic fashion, as the sky changes from hues of orchid to lavender to deep mauves to violet and, finally, to deep cobalt. Palm trees, tiki torches and lush greenery complete the scene, as the gentle sea breezes caress your face. This is tropical island nightlife at its best.
3. The Lounge
Hip and vanguard, The Lounge at multiple award-winning luxury resort Grace Bay Club – is the place to see and be seen. The stylish ambiance created by glowing lanterns, red plush couches and smooth tunes makes this the perfect place to grab some martinis or fruity tropical cocktails. Sit oceanside with your pals under a blissfully starry night.
4. Danny Buoy’s
Want a cold beer with your friends? How about a tall glass of pitch black Guinness? How about a game of darts? Get your party on at Danny Buoy’s, the Islands’ only authentic British-style pub. With imported draughts and the Islands’ largest single malt selection, DB’s offers good times all around. Weekly events such as Margarita Mondays, Karaoke and a daily 4pm Happy Hour liven up the scene and DJ dance parties promise drunken, lively amusement into the wee hours of the morning. Fine Cuban cigars, high stakes casino video poker and sports games on the Satellite TV mean more fun for everyone.
5. Stelle Bistro
Upscale, sleek and chic, Stelle Bistro turns into a nightclub cum lounge when the hour turns late. Stelle is located on the grounds of the Gansevoort Resort…….yes, that Gansevoort, the highly-regarded NY Gansevoort. Bringing some stylin’ NY nightclub scene action to the Turks, Stelle is the trendy place where the hipsters, scensters and nightclub denizens converge as the DJ spins, the lights dim, and the bass pumps till the wee hours of the morn.
There ya have it!
