  • 1. Poop Deck Sandyport

    We've been told that the bartender at Poop Deck, Sandyport was the man behind some iconic Bahamian cocktails. Whether or not this is true, the cocktails are great as is the food.

  • 2. Lucianos

    Located on the waterfront, Lucianos offers great views of Paradise Island at night. Not only that but they make a great cocktail. I particularly recommend the "Yellowbird".

  • 3. Oyster Bar & Grill Sandyport

    Somewhat out of the way but the food is excellent and the cocktail list is good. Its a very casual night out, made more enjoyable by live music on the weekends. Happy hour is on Friday evenings ;)

  • 4. Dune (at the One & Only Club)

    This will certainly need to be booked in advance if dinner is planned but the bar is open to non-guests. The cocktails are GREAT and the views over Cabbage Beach are worth lingering over.

  • 5. Bambu

    Located opposite the port, Bambu is good for early evening drinks (unless you don't mind crowds of people, who start to arrive after 10pm or so) and for people watching on the street below. Not especially a cocktail venue but a notable drinking spot either way.

  • 6. Arawak Cay
    Arawak Cay, Nassau, New Providence Island

    Also known as "Fish Fry", this is a collection of Bahamian restaurants or "shacks". This is a great place to have a drink and some snacks. There is always something going on there so people watching opportunities abound. Notable venues include, "Twin Brothers" as it has a great outdoor space.

  • 7. Daquiri Shack Cable Beach

    Opposite the Radisson & the Wyndham Hotels in Cable Beach is a great daquiri shack. The daquiris are made with fresh fruit and the rum is poured with a heavy hand. GREAT PLACE.

  • 8. Green Parrot (Hurricane Hole)

    Located on the waterfront near the Paradise Island bridge, this is a perfect place to drink the evening away. Its usually full of expats and sailors and the fish burgers are definitely worth a mention.

  • 9. Daquiri shack, Paradise Island

    Situated in the Hurricane Hole Plaza, this is another notable Daquiri shack. The daquiris are also made with fresh fruit and the bartender is good for a chat.

  • 10. Cafe Habana

    Located on Bay Street, this Cuban restaurant has a lively atmosphere and good mojitos.
