Saturday nights are always entertaining - lots of music and dancing. Good music, drinks from Rum Runners, restaurants in close proximity. It all adds up to a relaxing night!

“Gives the native experience with great music.”

Count Basie Square is at the market place, and gives a great opportunity to enjoy some food, drinks, and music. There is usually a live show Friday evenings, so don't miss out on that!

“Saturday Night party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

A Bahamian band played mix Island and U.S. mainstream songs. You can sit and eat and drink around the stage area or get up and dance with the flow. A mix of tourist and locals on a Saturday night, even including kids. It was fun way to get into the Island spirit.
