As some other reviewer told you... do not plan something else if your get there. You gonna spend very much time to drink cocktails, try something new and or different, chat with the bartenders or other guests or taste their cocktails as well.

If you get hungry, they take of it and bring you the menu from the neighborhood restaurant, which serves delicious food. We had a pizza and some BBQ ribs. This helps a lot to "survive" the homemade special hungarian snaps. Just ask for it and do not forget to try one of the specials with chili !!!

I wish this bar would be closer to my home... but is probably better like it is ;-)

Great views and prefect for people Watching, not to mention Killer drinks they go out of their
way to keep them cold with replenishment of hand crushed ice.
The interaction with customers and outstanding service will keep them going for some time to come. Ask the owner Marcel about the 2nd location he planning to open, if its half as good as this one he will do very well. His Manager Elma has a twin sister he is bringing on shortly and
be sure to ask about the local rum samples, no charge he offers.
The drink percentages of mixes make them go down easily and you get more than your moneys worth compaired to Ship or US pricing, again not to mention they know how to make a GOOD cocktail not just throw booze in a cup with a splash of mixer.
Lastly this was where I picked to be dropped off while the other 3 went shopping, lets say they didn't get much shopping done and we all stayed for hours.

After disappointing experiences in other cocktail bars, we did not have much expectations when we stopped at this place.
However, I was so happy that we did! The cocktails were fantastic and both bartenders are great!!!
I can only repeat what one of the other reviewer said:"Stop by for a drink and you will find yourself there for the rest of the day...." This is exactly what happened to us ....and no regrets there!
When we mentioned, that we haven't eaten anything yet, they offered to get us some food from the restaurant next door. They really took care of everything. And the food was good as well!

We had a wonderful time .... lots of fun ....and interesting drinks. Specially the Mango/Chili cocktail and the Hungarian 'Schnaps'. LECKER!

I came here because of the funny slogan and the promise to serve more alcohol than others.
Oh man, that's really true.

The cocktails were great and they have such a huge selection of different versions of everything. They are so experienced, just let them know what kind of taste your are looking for and they will mix you something right away.
Don't miss the spice stuff with chillis.

If you aren't so happy with your choice of a cocktail they will mix it again and make it to a celebration for you.

During a 7 day Carnival Cruise, we found the Dirty Sanchez by accident. This was the best bar the entire cruise. Marcel and Elma make the best Mojitos in the world!! Thanks for the great conversation and drinks!! This is the only bar you need to go to if you are ever in Sint Maarten!!
